To find if yeast is a problem for you, go without it for a week, like I did. I didn't notice a improvement at all in my stools, but they say give it two for sure. Although I was tested, no candida was found in my stool culture. But being on LDN they recommend you not have gluten, it blocks the seritonin in your gut, something like that.
I like the way LDN makes me feel, it's so weird that it made you worse. I think what they were saying is maybe you had underlying Lymes and LDN brought it to light? I really don't know, I'm guessing, but it's good to get checked for this.
Did you look up that Allimed I posted? See I think my UC is caused by bacterial, where you might think you have yeast. I thought yeast for so long, but taking antibiotics, I was having firmer stools so I think it was killing some of the bad bacteria and each time I was on antibiotics, when I got of them I was getting a little better. I remember a time I couldn't eat, it felt like "stuff" was in my intestines crawling. I have no idea what that was, was it a bacteria that burrowed into the gut and now it's leaky gut and that's why when I eat food passes to the blood stream and instantly I go to the bathroom. I don't know. I'm having all the tests done to rule out any of my questions. I get one stool test (the common stool tests) results on Monday.
Hey what about doing the cream instead of the pills? Maybe it will have a different effect on you and won't cause joint pain. Just a thought.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild") UC. STARTED LDN ON 1/25/09. Supplements: Cod Liver, Probiotics, multi whole food vitamin, olive leaf extract.
