I had a round of Cipro 3 weeks ago and every time I take a course of antibiotics I get just a little better and better. I'm on Klaire Labs probiotics, Detox Probiotics, Digestive Enzymes and Curcumin. I'm working with one of the pioneers of LDN, Dr. McCandless over the phone and internet, she's has been the best so far. I did the doctors data stool test which revealed "imbalance" of bacteria in my gut, just as the results came I was just getting on Cipro for what they thought was a UTI (it wasn't) so this really helped, I could see a small improvement. My bleeding basically stopped from the Cipro. Instead of going the "natural supplement route" b/c I'm at the point of give me the strong stuff, I've done too many "natural" supplements that take forever. Anyways, now that my gut is better, I'm back on LDN and it's day two of the cream and I have so much energy when I wake up in the morning, it really helps. From what I was told in my stool test results and my description of what happens every time I eat anything other than fish/chicken and steamed veggies (I swell up like I have a basketball in my gut, gas, pain, bloating, and the chronic diarreah) my doc feels it's more of fungus then yeast problem. I thought they were one in same, I guess simular but different.
I will let you know how it goes when I'm done with the 10 day course of Diflucan.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild") UC. Started LDN ON 1/25/09, stopped LDN on 5/1/09 didn't seem to help. Supplements: Probiotics, Cipro antibiotics 4/29 for 8 days seems to be helping, no bleeding right now, advanced inflammation control
