I've discovered that I might have leaky gas alongside my excessive flatulence problem. This has caused me so much more stressed because I know I smell ALL the time now whereas before I thought it was just when I had to pass the excessive gas. I don't even feel comfortable around the few friends that I have/had and even some family like I was before since I've discovered I may have leaky gas too. Its like one problem after another. I wish I could at least smell what others smell but I can't and its incredibly frustrating. I'm so stressed out and I know that causes the gas to be released too, but its hard for me to control my stress level. I thought once or if I could get the excessive gas under control then the smell would go away, but now I see that I have leaky gas also makes it worse and I won't know if its controlled. Its like a lose/lose situation. I'm pretty confident I may have IBS I really need to schedule a gastro doctor visit soon.
(Emotional rant over)
_My progress so far_
For a few weeks now I've been taking apple cider vinegar and oil of oregano orally and so far I haven't noticed much change. But I'm aware these are remedies that I have to take for a while so they can build up and be effective; so I'm trying to be patient. (FOREWARNING IT GETS A LITTLE GRAPHIC HERE) I took an apple cider vinegar/oil of oregano enema and I passed what I think is parasite worms (they were tiny but all different shapes and kind of a brownish color). Hopefully that's a good sign tho.
I'm currently taking:
apple cider vinegar (daily)
oil of oregano (daily)
olive leaf (Every few days)
eat yogurt (daily)
I take activated charcoal and sometimes chlorophyll pills when I have to go somewhere. But they don't seem to have that much effect. I really want to try to get rid of the problem instead of covering it up also and I feel like charcoal pills just covers it up.
I'm also thinking about ordering cumin seeds and some probiotics.
I'm going to try to post on this journal a lot more I find it helps me clear my head and get all these thoughts out.
