OH OH I KNOW THIS ONE!!!
My gut flora was wiped out after chemo and subsequent h pylori treatment, which called for almost a year of heavy duty antibiotics.
My digestion was in very bad shape, I was bloated so badly I could barely walk some days. The constant nausea, belching and heartburn was so severe I mostly couldn't leave my home for months at a time. I had diarrhea for hours and hours every morning, every day of the week.
This went on for almost a year with every darn doctor suggesting more antibiotics and steroids on top of those. I refused and went looking for nutritional solutions.
One day at a Nourishing Foods Conference I was offered an ounce of raw cow's milk. Within four hours I had the first normal bm in two years, and within 4 days my constantly stuffed and swollen sinuses drained totally--I was on to something for sure!
I now drink a quart a week of raw milk and my bloating is gone, my stamina is returning and I am no longer belchy and heartburny all day every day.
My gut is better, my health is returning, and my constant low level ear ache is almost entirely resolved.
Raw milk was/is a lifesaver imho.
