    Hi Seb:)

    How are you treating your SIBO?

    Did you ever take Rifraxam?

    If so, was there any flushing from die off?

    Many thanks,

    Are you using the tablets or injection solution to make the mixture for the dressings?
    Do yo need a script for this?

    Many thx,

    Hi Snoop,

    Low dose naltrexone is anywhere from 1.5 - 4.5 mgs.
    Many who are chemically sensitive even start at 0.5 or 1.0 mgs.
    50 mgs dosing is used for opiod addiction.

    So, you are using the...

    Hi Raymond,

    The sodium in the saline drip helps your body to retain water, hence the plumping up of your skin.
    Maybe you could have your electrolytes tested to see if there are any deficiencies ?...
