Last Wednesday I got in to see a Dr. Hugo Rodier, an MD who practices integrative medicine in the Salt Lake City area. http://hugorodier.com/

I'll just paste in what I already wrote over on the Lyme disease thread on that day:

The doctor believes my biggest problem is SIBO, and because of that my digestive system is damaged and I can't get the nutrition I need.  I think this is a good place to start.  I mentioned Lyme disease, and he was a bit hesitant about that, basically saying that the treatment for Lyme is antibiotics, and that's the last thing I need with my gut like it is.  He has advised me to take some huge doses of probiotics, along with Myer's cocktail injections, a powdered fiber and protein supplement called Constant Health, and several others.  He has ordered testing for Lyme disease, Celiac disease, vitamin D, ferritin, hemoglobin, and homocysteine.  I gather that, if I have Lyme disease, he wants to treat it by getting my gut and immune system healthy.

My church is paying for my treatment because  I can't afford to and because I am not likely to be able to afford to until after I'm well. After settling those financial arrangements on Thursday, I went back to the doctor's office on Friday to buy the Constant Health supplement powder, to give specimens for the lab work he ordered, and to get the nutritional injections recommended.  I got the Myer's cocktail IV, glutathione IV, B6, and B12 injections.  Let me recommend these to you!  Compared to my recent usuals, I definitely felt more energetic and alert yesterday, and I even felt pretty good today in spite of pushing myself a little too hard yesterday.  My appetite, which has diminished over the past month or so, has returned, and my mind is working more clearly.

I believe I've found a winner, and I have hope that by year's end I will be living the full, healthy life I've been working toward for the past 4 1/2 years.



Ps: You may find this earlier thread an interesting "prequel" - or not!  http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-encloplib/m-1327692871/

This makes me feel so happy, TJ! I know you have felt so alone in this struggle at times. When you began this last great push weeks ago, I just felt that something was going to open up for you!

The best use for church money yet.. thank them for all who would agree..

as for you.. seems you are getting what you need.. I am happy for every bit of help one can get.. a good doctor is worth its weight in gold.. I hope yours is.. get well soon..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I'm so happy for you! I'm glad you found funding for the treatment, and that you didn't let your pride interfere with accepting the help. Sometimes I wonder if God gives us these trials just to "open us up" to receiving help from others.

TJ,
Sounds like you have taken some really good steps, Doctor sounds great.  
I'm also interested if he diagnosed the SIBO based on symptoms or a test?

You all may be acquainted with my probiotic troubles.  The last time around trying them, they gave me a lot of malaise and inflammation, even taking a single capsule per day.  I'm taking two capsules twice daily at the same time I drink the Constant Health shake, and so far I seem to be tolerating it well.

Quoted from Andrea AWsec
Did he test you for SIBO?
He didn't have a breath hydrogen test done.  He's just going off symptoms.  The treatment approach for SIBO is pretty harmless if you don't have it, so I'm comfortable going forward without testing.  If it doesn't cure me, we can consider other problems.

I wonder, too.  He has a very slight accent.  Maybe he was born in France or Quebec.  His name is pronounced Roe-dee-ay.

Yes, I think he does.  I wish I had humbled myself sooner.  But better late than never!

TJ,
I looked again at the Doctor's website, and I love the fact he does not sell supplements to make money.  I think that is a good sign as  most who embrace the holistic side do sell supplements and it always makes me worry they might push more than you need.
I am interested in knowing more about the Constant Health Powder drink, I googled and found on called Constant Health Rice Protein Formula, is that it?
Sounds like a good supplement if this is the one.

TJ. I found your product online, Constant Health Rice Protein and although I read the reviews and
saw the list of ingredients, I cannot figure out why a reviewer said it was too sweet. It's stevia
and xylitol.  I can't really figure out what makes up the caloric content of this product. What
would give it 20 grams of fat?  I don't see any fatty acids listed unless I missed something.

I'm glad it's working for you....I use Sun Warrior Rice protein.  It's raw and sprouted.

Your doctor looks great....hope you start to feel really well!

Sometimes it takes awhile for us to understand that we can not figure it out ourselves that we need direction and help from the right people.
