Traditional antibiotics didn’t work for my daughter either. We switched to Allimed and Neem natural antimicrobials with the help of a Functional Medicine Doctor experienced with SIBO and that seems to be helping. We also do the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It’s a long road to healing and you must be patient but I believe healing is possible if all aspects of what this bacteria does is addressed. That means pancreatic and gallbladder enzymes need to be evaluated. A screening for a Hiatal Hernia and b12 levels checked. SIBO is notorious for disturbing all of these things. Everything needs addressed before you can completely heal.

The traditional antibiotics like Xifaxan didn’t work for my daughter so we switched to Allimed and Neem. They are herbal antimicrobials and under a care of a knowledgeable Functional Medicine Doctor have been giving us good results. No worries for C.Diff with these natural herbs.

You’ll want to get a follow up breath test to be sure it’s gone and if it is you may want to look at Allision Siebeckers siboinfo site for diet and post care recommendations. We follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet she recommends.

I would be concerned the Miralax would contain something that will feed the bacteria. Magnesium is a safe alternative and doesn’t feed the bacteria. Dosing guidelines are easy to find online. I myself was instructed to take 450mg nightly to help with the constipation. More or less might be needed depending on the person.

SIBO seems to cause a host of digestive problems including Hiatal Hernias. I would look into that as being a cause. Also you may want to have your gallbladder evaluated by a Functional Medicine Doctor. SIBO tends to disrupt the pancreas and gallbladder enyzmes. Xifaxan didn’t work for our daughter and so now we are seeing a SIBO knowledgable Functional Medicine Doctor via Skype.
