Hello, @itsohard. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.
Do you use honey and cinnamon in place of probiotics? or along with? If you're comfortable sharing- can you tell me a little more about yourself?
Hi Jamie. I use both. I had two days relief not long ago. My strategy:
One Table Spoon Honey/Cinnamon, 100 million Probiotics
Jamie, I am not comfortable sharing a lot of details about myself on here, because it is public. But, I don't mind sharing some details about me if that's OK. I am a mother of two boys, raised them on my own. I currently reside in my home state, KY. I work from home and have since 2001.
I currently relocated from another State, Michigan. During my stay there, I was trying to get help for my eldest son, who doctors said there was suffering from Crohns Disease. He kept getting worse. I moved back to my home state in Ky. and here we learned he had CDif. by the time we figured it out, I had been infected and started showing Signs of Cdif in Michigan. It was too late.
I was very angry, at this time, because I was told there are cures, but it's basically for rich people. Poor people who have been infected, thanks to Antibiotics and visits to some hospitals, are not able to get cured. We believe adamantly that my son contracted this condition after visiting a local hospital in Michigan. It was after his visit, the symptoms started.
So I am on a routine expenditure now to save my son's life as well as my own now. I fought for years to save his life prior to. Not only does he have cdif too, he also has diabetes and high-blood. So I am testing on my own a few ways to help.
I found relief after taking 100 million Probiotics, Cinnamon/Honey, and eating limited foods. Bananas helped too. Stay with nature's natural and finest is what I try to do.
My son and I ate Chinese food every single day for 2 months. That is all we could eat. Expensive. I ate mainly shrimp, not breaded, melons, fruits, and stayed away from most other types of foods. I did OK. But after a while, it started to affect me again, so I had to switch up. Now, I am working on eating mainly fruits, from natural sources only.
I've been struggling for a few months now, and had some success, even a few days without any symptoms at all!
