Toxic Flatulence Cured

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been on Omeprozole for many years. The past two years I have suffered from toxic flatulence. I could not relate it to any specific food and the only way I could stop it was to go on a no to very low carb diet. I complained enough to my GI doc that he considered SIBO, small intestine bacterial overgrowth. My research suggested it was caused by the low acid environment in the stomach and intestines. This environment allowed bacteria to grow where they would not normally be found. After 10 days on Doxycycline I am cured. I am not sure how long it will last, as I am still on Omeprezole.

      why are ppis only for temp use? I have been on them for years. I try not to take them unless I really need them because they make me jaw swing and grind my teeth, but I get bad acid reflux and I worry about ulcers.
