    Colonic dependence

    Shop Now
    I need help. I've grown dependent on colonics, and I'm not sure what to do to escape. I know that colonics deplete the gut of flora, but nothing else seems to give me relief.

    I don't eat grains, dairy (cept butter/ghee), nightshades, nuts, fruit, etc. The only sugary things I eat are butternut squash and carrots. I eat 2-4 tablespoons of coconut oil every day. I take a pretty broad and strong dose of probiotics daily (VSL #3, FemDophilus, rotations of Saccaromyces Boulardii, etc).

    I eat homemade yogurt daily (using macadamia nuts, coconut water, probiotic powder, and a yogurt maker).

    I'm getting about 50-70 grams of protein a day in the form of poultry, eggs, and whey protein. I am 110 pounds.

    I know candida has been excessive in the past, but I feel like it is somewhat under control, although I do still get oral thrush, but I have no sugar cravings.

    My sleep has improved as a of late, so I am starting to exercise more ([I am quite out of shape).

    I've also been eating bone broth on more and more of a daily basis; I got some quality grass-fed marrow bones from U.S. Wellness Meats.

    Sometimes magnesium citrate does the trick, and sometimes it doesn't. I take Betaine HCl with and after most of my meals; I know I have low stomach acid because it takes a lot for me to feel that slight burn. I also take glutamine, black walnut, cod liver with butter oil, and a multivitamin. They are all allergen free. There is some maltodextrin and magnesium stearate in some of my supplements, but I didn't notice much difference when I avoided it.

    What am I missing? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I would also suggesting having the abdominal pain medically evaluated, if you have not already done so. You'll want to rule out intestinal growths and the like.

    How does one rule intestinal growths out? A stool test?

    Fage is a brand of greek yogurt that apparently people go nuts for. I hate yogurt, but my husband eats it & says that the Fage brand is OK. I know you can get it at Whole Foods and Walmart.
