  1. Wow almost everything discussed is ME! My university of Michigan gastro dr is the first to prescribed the neomycin along with the rifaximan. Thank you for all this information. I needed the reassurance that I am not crazy. I can loose 5-6# going to the bathroom..but i gain weight so easy.
    I also was a vegetarian for years, and protein is difficult for me to eat.

    Thank you for your fantastic podcasts…every time I listen I hear something new, something that reinforces what I am feeling and what my body is telling me- I’m not going totally crazy!! I also love hearing your own personal journey, being a chronic case also, it makes me feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Glad to hear I am not the only one who dies when they have lentils!
