Shanor - I am so glad that you are getting better. I am going to share what worked for me when I had C. diff that went undiagnosed for approximately two months. At this point, I had severe colitis and was suffering from malabsorption of fats. I would also highly recommend you try seeing a homeopathic doctor (and if you would like more info on this I recently wrote an article called Why Homeopathy for Gastric Issues and can it be found on the site). Firstly, I basically did a strict elimination diet whereby I stopped eating everything except plain, boiled, bland rice and stopped drinking anything except purified water for a couple of days. My intestines were so damaged at this point that they desperately needed to rest. After this, I added in orange roughy for protein. I honestly did this diet for a couple of weeks as suggested by my homeopathic doctor to heal my intestines. Being on a normal diet had only been making my symptoms far worse. My homeopathic doctor also gave me a supplement called n-acetyl glucosamine. "In a few small studies, n-acetyl glucosamine has shown promise for treating inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohnï¿½s disease and ulcerative colitis. N-acetyl glucosamine forms part of an enzyme needed to produce mucus. Therefore, it is believed to increase the production of the mucus that lines the lower gastrointestinal tract, providing a protective effect." - This excerpt I took fromBellaOnline ALERT: Raw URLs are not allowed in these forums for security reasons.
