Re: Skin Allergies Through Illnesses

Hi Debbie, Skin conditions are often a reflection of an internal problem. I suspect because of your medical condition, you may have had a number of courses of antibiotics. If this is true, the first thing is to balance the flora in your gut, so you need a really powerful pro-biotic, drink kefir (fer...

Re: Stomach Problems

The weight loss is a major concern. I suggest you contact your Father's GP and ask him to expedite the scan as an emergency.
The antibiotics will have disrupted his intestinal micobiome but this can be addressed once you have a diagnosis.

Re: IBS & Thyroid

IBS and Diverticular disease are related. Unlikely the crush feeling at base of throat / top of the chest are related to either IBS or diverticular disease. More likely stress associated, causing some constriction in nerve supply. Under-active thyroid will cause your voice to become hoarse, as will ...

Re: stomach problems

It is possible the HPylori may have returned, ask your GP to check this out. Some herbal treatments may be as effective as antibiotics, such as oregano oil. However, your symptoms may also be caused by insufficient hydrochloric acid in your stomach which may have allowed the HPylori to again prolife...

Re: Constipation problems

You are doing the right thing by drinking lots of water but you may also need a bulking agent like phylum husk...

Re: How do I make my stools easier to pass?

Ask your health store for a bulking agent ie a fibre which swells when mixed with water.

Re: How do I manage my bloating?

I think Sharon we need a little more information. Your intestines require lots of what we call beneficial bacteria which "exercise the colon" and aide movement through the digestive tract. The bacterial balance can be disrupted by prescription drugs, particularly antibiotics. I suggest you eat some ...
