#519873 - 09/06/19 10:44 AM Update: New stool analysis. Question for the forum

Hi forum,

My new stool analysis is in, plus I made adjustments and wanted to ask for your advice.

I have made great improvements to my gut using NSD, no sugar, no fructose, supplemented with vitamins A+C+D, magnesium, chrome, zinc, some bile acid, some ACV.

-My intolerances have greatly improved but are still very high (the IgG4 score is down from 160 to 80). Still can eat only a handful of veggies, fruit, pork and fish.

-My pathogens are gone (yaay!!)

-Sadly my calprotectine rose off the charts: from 190 to now 595! Do not understand why.

-General dysbiosis improved, but still lacking lactobacillus and bifido. As to be expected.


Sadly during these results I have no had any improvements in my health whatsoever. Still extreme fatigue, diahrrea, weight loss, AS-inflammation. I have Enbrel to keep AS under control, which it does for 90%.
But! And here is my question: I have decided to add anti-bacterial supplements (Berberine, Allicin, Lactoferrin) and the results are insane. First night I had very painful cramps and extreme nausea. I decided to tone it down, but stayed very nauseous. Then built it up slowly. My nausea mostly went away and the insatiable hunger disappeared. I felt a lot better with the supplements added. Then I seemed to still be intolerant to garlic, so my naturpath said I should quit Allicin, which I replaced by Peppermint oil (morning) and Oregano oil (evening). With these added, a new wave of cramps and nausea have started.

What do I do with this? I have tons more energy, no more insatiable hunger, I eat about 1/3 of what I used to (now down to normal portions). My stool has improved, though slightly worse again now with the added Oregano. On the other hand, the nausea kind of stays. Is it a big herxheimer reaction? Should I continue this path? If so: for how long?

Just seeing this now....seems like nothong comes easy for you Bas, I'm so sorry, though very glad to hear of some of the improvements. Very curious to know how you are doing no, whether the reaction has passed?
Suspected USpA. HLA B27, xray, u/sound, blood tests all -ve. Ancient history of plantar fasciitis, SI joint pain, knee arthritis. Recent history of tendinitis, neck pain, debilitating finger pain and stiffness (especially mornings). No diagnosis, no meds.

2010 - stopped eating dairy
2012 - stopped eating wheat
2014 - stopped eating all grains
Jan 2017 - discovered NSD - 98% improvement in symptoms, continually amazed by my results, wish I'd found kickAS sooner

Bazel: I was on LOW Starch Diet for 10 months and seemed to hit a bit of a plateau. The diet helped in that my pain was less but I was not able to make more progress. Also, my ears used to always ache. No one could tell me why.

While at my dentist evaluating possibility of getting a tooth implant in my upper jaw, a scan was done for my sinus cavity to make sure it was clear and they noticed that I had some type of obstruction! ENT thinks I have a bacterial infection! I had them check for Klebsiella, but test did not show definitively that it was Klebsielkla. My ENT Doctor(Otolaryngologists) has me rinsing with Neilmed salts, a steroid (Methylprednisolone), and an antibiotic (Levofloxacin). Pain is definitely going away now!

Please make sure that you do not have a sinus infection! I suspect that those of us who can not get the diet to work may have sinusitis.
