Good article. Right before I was diagnosed, I was seeing a homeopathic physician. I got her to test me for intestinal bacteria. The test came back negative for any lactobacillus bacteria, the beneficial probiotics. Perhaps this started my problem. It sure would be great if they could cure this darn disease. There is too much suffering and too few answers for us. I think a lot of GI docs give up on us when things aren't working just when we need their support. As always, I am grateful for this forum.
