Biomat

Has anyone here used the biomat? I ordered one. I used it at the Iv clinic and felt good for a few days after. 

Yeast

Still fighting yeast.  On antibioticsi 22 yrs for chronic sinus.  Also have nasal fungal. Treating with ampho b nasal wash.  Want to try caproyl, bentonite, and psyllium instead of diflucan again, (taken for years, dont think it works, also tried nizoral and sporanox) but can't find dosage or how to mix these.  Can't afford whole approach package.  I think they have to be mixed with water to form a gel that coats my colon.  I'm sure I have leaky gut.  Does anyone have the info on how much to take a day, dosage, if I can take all together. Also read somewhere that has to be in liquid form in order to coat colona does anyone know how to take this? Thx

Colloidal silver

Has anyone used colloidal silver drops in saline nasal spray for fungal sinus?  I am thinking about trying it.  Lynn

Does dieoff cause insomnia?

I have had more trouble sleeping lately, not that I sleep good.  I started back on all my meds and my ears are ringing, feel shaky, hot, swollen, flushed, and hyper.  I think I started too much back too fast after being off of the antibioticsi and Tinii.  I may need to just start back on one antibiotic a day for 2 days and then add the other one???  (doxyi and biaxin each twice a day).  Then maybe try tini later???  I really got sick with a throat/sinus infection, have laryngitis real bad and feel horrible so started back on all 3 at one time hoping I would get over it fast. 

What brand of probiotics?

What is the best brand of probiotics to use?  There are so many different kinds.  I am now taking Culturelle but it doesn't have everything I need does it?  I have taken a lot of different kinds.  Am really trying to help the nausea, bloat, yeast, etc.  Maybe I just haven't taken enough a day.  Tried it off and on for years.  Or maybe digestive enzymes?  I was diagnosed with IBSi at 14. Maybe start back on the kefir - how much a day - a cup?  I have milk allergy though.   Lynn

Well, I'm back again

Been on the capi for 2 years and just had so much yeast that I took myself off the antibioticsi.  Took 2 weeks of Tindamax and was okay for a few weeks.  Been having a hacking cough which I now know was a throat infection trying to take hold.  I held it off for about a month and now am so, so sick.  Had to go back on doxyi and biaxin and tindamax.  I kept up taking everything else (supplementsi, etc.). 

Seems I may never have my own immunei system again.  I have been on 20 years of antibiotics continuously for 20 years prior to this.  Maybe I just killed my immune system with all the antibiotics.  Constant sinus infectionsi (staph, sudamonas, etc.).  Had 12 sinus surgeries and 3 tear duct surgeries.

Sore throat, sinus yeast

Well, I'm on Doxyi, Biaxin and Tindamax and am still getting a sore throat.  Also on low dose of Diflucan.  I have had yeast in my right sinus cavity for years.  Trying to get back on Amphotericin B nasal wash again.  Maybe that will help.  Also have a terrible dry cough for the last 6 mos.  I read that it can be a sign of mycoplasma.  Just had lab tests done so I'm interested in the results.  Guess I'll up my Vita C again to 7 grams a day.  Hate that powder stuff.  I'm just so afraid that I'll get a mutated infection that they can't treat.  I've been on continuous antibioticsi for 20 years now but only on this protocol since Oct 2008.  Sure hope I turn the corner soon.  Anyone have any ideas.  I take all the supplementsi, etc. too.

Tindamax use

Well, here I am again!  I just did a 10 day pulse with Tindamax taking 2 a day.  I was getting really sick and decided to start on it and it made me feel much better.  No side effects except yeast .  Much better than Flagyli.  Well, my question is, I finished the 10 days last Monday and now I am sick again.  How long can you take the Tindamax with all the other stuff I'm on?  I don't watch my body to get used to the Tindamax.

Feeling no better

I have been on the capi for about 14 months now and am still not noticing any getting better.  I am depressed most of the time (on antidepressants for years), still just weary, too weak to do anything physical most of the time, no energy, etc. 

Still a lot of yeast (taking all the stuff for it) plus 1 Diflucan a day plus Kefir (like yogurt, plus acidophulus pills, etc.)  I am on Valtrex for Epstein Barr and hhv-6 and am thinking about asking for Valcyte.  Doc doesn't like to use it but just maybe if I can feel better from those things I might do better on the cap.  Or should I not take the cap while taking the Valcyte? 

Pharyngitis

I seem to have it again.  I am on Biaxin 500mg 2xday and the doxyi 2 x aday 100mg.  I've read that it could be fungal so I'm going to take 200mg of diflucan a day and see if that helps.  I also went back on the thrush losenges?  Hard to swallow and feels like something is stuck in my throat but it's just red, no infection I can see.  Has anyone here had this a lot and what did you do for it?   Did it resolve on its own?  I just can't see adding another antibiotic.  That would make 3 different ones a day plus all the other stuff I'm on. 

Does anyone here drink kefir?

I bought some cranberry kefir at Christmas at the local supermarket.  Tastes a lot like yogurt but what I've read makes it sound better for you because there is extra stuff in it.  I make my own yogurt (sometimes) and thought about making kefir but you have to order a starter.  Oh, maybe I could make a starter with some purchased kefir like I do with organic purchased yogurt.  Any thoughts?

Anyone had cervical spine surgery?

Has anyone here had to have cervical spine surgery?  Mine is C 5 & 6 and has gotten progressively worse the last 9 mos.  Blamed it on the fibro but is now too painful to ignore.  I am going to have a nerve block this Wednesday to see if that helps.  The doc looked at my mri and said I shouldn't be hurting so badly, that I had plenty of room in the spinal canal.  He must not understand about fibro pain.  I had lower lumbar back surgery in 1994 and got the fibro after that so I am somewhat fearful of more surgery.  But, if this doesn't help, I'll have to have it done.  I am so tired of screaming pain.  Constant Biofreeze, lidocaine patches, walking around the house with a microwave heat pad on my neck and sleeping with a heating pad.  As you all know, constant p

Well, went off of antibiotics and flagyl, trying something else

I am so sick of antibioticsi and yeast!  Been on continuous antibiotics since 1990, iv's 2 antibiotics at a time 6 weeks here and there plus the antibiotic pills inbetween iv's, 19 years continuously.  I will stay on naci and 5,000 to 10,000 mg of vita c plus yeast fighters, supplementsi, etc.  and see how I feel.  I haven't felt good but one week since I started on capi in Oct '08. 

Is it just me or does Flagyl still make any of you deathly ill?

I have been on capi since Oct of 08.  I am on my 8th??? pulse and still get so darn sick!  Feel so horrible and the yeast is raging after 5 days.  One time I took 10 days of it and didn't get sick at all.  Every other time I feel horrible.  Three days, five days, seven days - still horrible.  I take Diflucan, probiotics and yeast fighers and "yuck" suppositories. I think I'll ask doc for tinii but don't know if my insurance will pay for it.  Ibuprofen, moppers, etc.  I just had some "bowel" tests done so don't have results back yet.  Maybe that will show up something.  Or, I may just be one of the lucky ones that can't take the flagyli because of the side effects.

This is gross but need help

Can Flagyli cause foul smelling stools?  After I finished a 7 day pulse I have that problem real bad.  Also vaginal too.  I know Flagyl can cause more yeast which I always have in abundance but my question is - did I take the flagyl for too short a time and caused a bowel infection???  Or maybe it's more likely that I got a killer candida infection in my colon?  Sorry to be gross but just wondering if anyone has had that problem and what did they used to get rid of it?  I am taking 1 - 100mg diflucan pill a day (which I always have to take anyway) and probiotics.
