Well clearly the bacteria they were looking for when they biopsied me wasnt found... it came back negative for bacterial infection.
What type of bacteria were they looking for if I may ask?
I personally think it could easily be both.
That's what I'm thinking too.
The human gut flora is not well researched at this time. In fact, it's one huge mystery to us still.
I only speak for myself, but I believe I have some pathogenic strain of E. Coli which was supposed to be harmless and good but somehow it got pathogenic and that's what my immune system is trying to fight. Like I said, just my personal theory. Never had anything tested. Except that I'm doing SCD which is designed to starve out the "bad" bacteria and up the "good" bacteria and it works for me.
