What naturopath stuff do you do?
I've been seeing a naturopath for the past few years, but not once while I was in the trenchst fighting uc. Doh!
So I've done a few different vega tests determining out of 200 foods which I'm more reacrive to. More than anything it determined I had crazy leaky gut and candida, all without any noticeable symptoms...it was just my normal. He gave me some excellent probiotics super hmf....but that was based on my body and how it would react to that specific probiotic. Additionally he gave me these 2 phenolic extracts, said magic potions. So with these I didn't notice any physical feeling of difference, but I went from never eating salads, nuts and popcorns to eating anything I want. It changes and rebalances all the good bacteria and got rid of the bad ( candida and helped heal the leaky gut), resulting in proper digestion. Crazy!
Since then I had my proctectomy surgery and decided I would check in and make sure everything was rebalanced post op for optimal healing digestion And nutrition. He prescribed the same probiotic, but a pair of different drops and "green light" which looks like swamp water, tastes like something fermented, but not good, and another called daily defend.
So post op I've been back to normal diet with no restrictions, great digestion etc, I was just going for optimal, now this time I reacted to something from that whole cocktail. Physically felt the same, no more energy,or less, great digestion, but gave me gas like a hot air balloon. Like stupid amounts. So we had to stop that regiment, retest and see what else I would respond to best. So I'm on a different regiment of drops and a slightly different probiotic. Dropped the green light as I think it might be party resposibres for the ballooning, and it has made a difference, but I liked it better when inwasnt ballooning.
The last thing he's given me was last year we dabbled with the vitamin B12 world. Took pills for while and then self administered B12 injections over 3 months, And as much as I wanted to believe they made a difference in my energy level, they didn't. So we stopped that.
Thats what I recall for the most part. Hope that wasn't too much! Look into the vega testing if you have the chance.
