    Fermenting Health: How A Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Patient Reversed Decades of Gut Problems – From Home


    Audrey’s Story
    In 1984 I was diagnosed with Epstein Barr Virus after sudden onset of symptoms and tested positive for herpes zoster and Coxsackie. I suffered severe gut issues (candida from years of antibiotics, acid reflux, cramping, bloating) as well as severe brain fog that I have lived with 24/7 for 30 years. I also started experiencing severe allergies and skin rashes, especially to environment stuff, as well as chemical sensitivity. Prior to diagnosis, my diet consisted of wheat, sugar, dairy, carbs, etc.

    I was given Meyers cocktail IVs and high doses of vitamin C with no relief. I researched and began a nutritional program, eliminating wheat, sugar, and dairy from my diet. My gut issues were less after about 1 year, but were never gone.

    Great article Reesacat. I used to make kombucha when my son lived with me - even so, it made more than we could drink. I've had no success with kefir, but maybe the grains weren't fresh, as they took a few days to get here. I'd like to try water kefir when the weather warms up.

    My local very helpful pharmacist recommended a particular probiotic, L.Plantarium V299 for IBS. Doesn't seem to be included in most probiotics.
