semi elemental diet for 2 weeks (not APO specific)

Postby cdamaden » Sat Apr 23, 2016 10:34 am

All,
I wanted to know if anyone has any pointers while on a semi-elemental diet. I will be on one for 2 weeks.
I have a mild case of methane based SIBO that has survived through two rounds of herbal antibiotics and one round of pharmaceutical antibiotics (Rifaximin and Neomycin - long battle with insurance on that one :x ). Now I'm going on a two week semi-elemental diet using Absorb Plus and Udo's oil. For the last 3-4 weeks I've been on a HFLC diet (20% protein, 60% fat, 20% carbs) and for the last 2 weeks have been Intermittent Fasting 8/16.
I started the new regime mid-day yesterday and did experience some brain fog but I also think I'm picking up a cold. This morning I checked blood glucose and it was at 88 mg/dL, about 10 points higher than the previous few days.
I plan to continue Intermittent Fasting and have doubled the oil from 1 tbsp to 2 tbsp per 8 oz serving. If anyone has other experiences to share and how it affected their blood glucose or other health markers, please share. Also any thoughts on Udo's oil?
Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris, don't know about the oil, but wanted to ask if you are using any probiotics along with your treatments.

Susan,
My doc has you build up to these two probiotics at the doses listed:
1. Ther-Biotic Complete Powder,
1/4 tsp., 2xday. Notes:
try to take away from anti-microbials if possible, if you are on them

2. Primal Defense Ultra, 2 capsules, 2xday

There is one camp who believes, take your probiotics even when on antibiotics. They won't have a chance of colonizing, but might do enough good to keep the bad ones from taking over. You might ask why they say not to take the Ther-biotic with the antibiotics.
