First and foremost….thanks for all the fabulous, generous, kind and wonderful comments you left on the blog since my last post.  It’s so nice to know that SO many of you out there are on your way to a happy and healthy digestive tract.

I have been working on some behind the scenes blog stuff.  Getting ready to launch my new site {Yay!} and hoping that it will be easier to navigate.  Working on the ‘back end’ of the blog is just busy work but it will help the blog be more organized–and that has been an ongoing goal of mine.

I having also been testing some recipes that I will be sharing with you soon enough. Today, I created a FODMAP friendly version of my friend, Meg’s delicious biscotti recipe.  Super yummy!  You will love this little sweet treat.  I might even post it tomorrow if I get my act together!

So…the winner’s of my 21 Day Tummy and 21 Day Tummy cookbook are….Kristin, Melissa and Ashley.  Congrats ladies! The winners have been notified via email….and the books will be shipped out soon!

But no worries…YOU still have a chance…I have more books and will be doing another give-a-way soon…promise!

    I too have lost my ileocecal valve – right hemicolectomy due to volvulus twist. i am reluctant to try the antibiotic route as it seems that it will be unending. How did you beat back the SIBO with no valve?
    Thank you. Mary

      Hi Mary, my initial SIBO episode was back in 2003 and I was treated with the antibiotics for 7 days. That did the trick along with periodic probiotics for nearly 10 years! I was free of major symptoms until 2013 after antibiotics for another infection. This past time I needed 2 rounds of rifaximin to feel better. I have found that if I start getting sibo symptoms and pull back on FODMAPs and add a probiotic–I can abort a full blown SIBO event–but this is just my personal experience–not a research study …and since we are all individuals and have individual reasons for developing sibo–this approach may not work for someone else. Certainly avoiding antibiotics is a good thing…but avoiding antibiotics may not be possible in some SIBO cases.
