Therapy for the gut
I would like to know what treatment options are available to help with gut issues. If you have had food intolerances or irritable bowel symptoms or similar what has worked for you. I'm really interested in the range of options rather than looking for something specific for me. I'm especially interested in things that might help in case of immunological abnormalities.

1. I look at every person as if they where an autistic child.
2. Look at the pathology of the problem by examining past medical history, and reason to why they are having these issues. Further evaluate stressors based on biological, psychological, environmental, structural, lifestyle and nutritional imbalances
3. Then formulate list of test to clarify clinically for further medical validations for Dr's
4. After getting results back, I then look how these things connect together to explain what the person is experience to provide a rational answers to the medical professional
5. Look to see how to balance each system in what specific order to get the best clinical response for my final presentation to the Dr.
When dealing with GI areas to focus on and what factors affect each.
1. immune system-
4. Hormones -
I have a methodology used to heal gut with out antibiotics - need to beef up immune system, remove the irritation to the GI tract, support adrenals, heal the gut lining. Just like HRT this is an art form filled with lots of science which only a few Dr's have a true understanding of. Again these are the basis, and how one does it is totally individual.
Number one rule. You can not heal the gut until you detox heavy metals which throws another curve ball at you. IF you do not remove the metals the gut will never heal properly. All those probiotics are wasted down the toilet because they be able to adhere to an inflammed wall.I am not a medical Dr, please keep in mind that this answer is for information purposes only, and is not intended to diagnose, treat or replace sound medical advice from your physician or health care provider.

It really depends on how deep you want to get and how much money can spend. Three of the biggest areas to look at are yeast overgrowth, food allergies, and gut inflammation in general. I would start with a good quality probiotic (not from a big box store, go to a good health food store or pharmacy that sells quality products) and fish oil. From there you will likely need to do some of your own research to evaluate where to go next as it relates to food allergies and yeast problems.

Well, a completely different tack would be to consider dietary Histamine and Histamine intolerance.

Try HISTAME for a while, to see if it helps.

Holistic gut therapy is the only way to go. Take it from someone else with a serious history of gut pathologies.

How often do you advise endoscopies rather than CDSAs?

what if say someone was exposed to yeast a few times while on Nexium/Prilosec for 5 years. What do you do now to combat the yeast that took over the GI tract and affected the prostate thus causing low test levels?

There are some supplements that can help, there is one called Candida Clear from Now Foods. Of course Rx antifungals are more powerful, but are very harsh on the kidneys and liver longer term. You would need to make adjustments to the diet that deal primarily with eliminating sugars. Just google yeast elimination. Being on a PPI like Nexium or repeated antibiotic courses often lead to yeast problems.

Another one along these lines is Cissus which may have some gastroprotective activity. Anyone tried this?

Yes, I use HISTAME. It is pig DAO (diamine oxidase). My personal allergic reaction to food histamine is swollen nasal passages, but there is
a wide range of possible affected areas in the body, especially GI. For $30 a bottle of 30, it is an interesting SELF experment.
USA medicine is years behind Europe on DAO research....just like they were on candisis.

HITEST have you tried CANDEX?
Yes, large amounts of XYLITOL will cause GI distress.
If you suspect candida overrun, have you had an IGE test, to look for LEAKY GUT?

So far I really like Xylitol and plan to incorporate it into my gut management routine. I still have to work out the best way to do this. It won't fix my primary problem but seems that it may help manage my secondary gut issues better than anything else I have tried. We shall see.

I could sure use something for the gut! I am nearly certain I have some intestinal/ GI issues going on.
I have AT MINIMUM 5-6 bowl movements a day...typically not solid. Is that normal for anyone else? I do not have a gall bladder--as it was removed when I had liver cancer.
