I, too, have been able to get the number of BMs under control via anti-fungal diet(with Kim's help). Instead of Caprylic Acid, I have been taking 1000mg of Olive Leaf Extract 4 times a day..with no yeast-based products, no pasta, bread, sugar, no dairy, no fruits, etc. First week was tough but then I was fine. I have reduced from 8+ BMs to average of 3 or less..almost always in the morning.
I have slowly started to introduce some new foods, such as quinoa, brown rice, rice cakes, pita bread, tortilla, etc. I am not out of the woods yet but making slow progress.
During my last visit to GI, he wanted me to start taking Remicade. But agreed to let me give diet a try..
What seems to be working for me may not work for you.
