This episode has literally probably saved my life thank you both!!!!! I am currently battling an autoimmune/ gut disorder which is like celiac but from corn not gluten !! Similar pathology but ANYTHING with ANY form of corn causes my immune system to attack me and it acts as a corrosive substance when consumed causing sores, bleeding, flattening of my intestinal villi , chronic migraines not to mention eosophagitus and damage to my tissues! Most doctors are currently baffled as it is so rare but my blood test came up positive aside from my symptoms. Currently, guzzling pain relief buy the bucket load but guess what it contains corn as does almost EVER processed food/medicine item! I now have clinically diagnosed dysbiosis, sibo, a hiatial hernia, previous numerous rounds of H.Pylori , psoriasis, contact dermatitis, GERD. The list is ENDLESS and I am now back at work after 2 years of being signed off long term sick because of financial reasons and I am struggling and severely inflamed and getting immediate headaches and migraines due to numerous intolerances alongside the corn allergy and lactose intolerance.
What a great episode! I personally love the taste and color of Biocidin–both are really happy and sweet. My ND Jason Wysocki prescribed it for me last year for about 6 months to see me through between SIBO herbal protocols. It really helped stabilize my symptoms and kept systemic bacteria and yeast at bay. I look forward to trying more of Dr. Fresco’s wonderful products.
