If she hasn't already done so, I recommend she do the Genova/Metametrix "GI Effects" stool test, which will check that bacteria against both pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals to determine what will be effective against it. It may be that she requires a combination of things for ultimate effectiveness.
My friend Denise is dealing with this health issue for a while now and I though to ask all of you for help, in sharing your thoughts. Thank you so much.Here is her message: "I need help!!! I have been dealing with some severe bloating and digestive issues for over 4 years now. I caught something during a trip to Bali and I haven't been the same since. About a year ago I was diagnosed with SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth ). I tried treating it naturally with a low FODMAPS diet, oregano oil, peppermint oil, candibactin, MotilPro………until I finally gave in to a round of antibiotics (rifaximin) a month ago. Today I found out the the SIBO is not gone and I don't even know how to treat it next. Any suggestions?"

I am a mother of 7 1/2 year old twin girls. I have found that discussing food, its benefits and downsides, is what is the most helpful in shaping my kids into conscious eaters. If you restrict your children, especially when other kids are eating what we consider to be unhealthy choices, they will only crave those foods more and gorge on them when you are not around. It is best to arm them with age appropriate information and choices. As they get older, I see my girls making better and better choices and I know they will stick to them because it is their decision not what I am dictating.

A friend of mine had some side effects of dental anaesthetic: sharp pain in stomach the night after his visit followed by upset stomach, diarrhea, and dry mouth for three days.
I recommended drinking lots of water and coconut water for extra hydration, 3 capsules of Milk Thistle extract per day for 5 days, and vegetable and bone broths. He has a second appointment in a week, which means more anaesthesia. I told him to ask for an alternative anaesthesia without Epinephrine (I was told that this component might be to blame).
Does this sound about right?
Do you have any other recommendations for minimising the side effects of anaesthesia? Maybe a special diet before or after the procedure...
Thank you in advance for any feedback.

Dear Bauman College Natural Chef Students,
On behalf of Chef Laurent Manrique and the Tibetan Aid Project, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the Tibetan Aid Project’s 14th annual Taste & Tribute benefit dinner.
This year Taste & Tribute will be held on Friday, November 21, 2014 at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco. Taste & Tribute is a gala fundraising event that features twenty-two of the Bay Area’s finest chefs, including Laurent Manrique of Café de la Presse The Chefs work table-side in pairs to create exquisite four-course meals for a table of twenty guests. Fine wine will be served during this event; the wine is paired for the four courses at a table based on the wine and the menu. Generally, 4 reds, 4 whites, 4 additional whites, and 4 dessert wines. There will be a total of 220 guests in the ballroom at the Four Seasons Hotel. Tickets to the event are $350.00 each, and sell out every year. A silent auction takes place during the reception, and a live auction is held during dinner. The program includes heartfelt speeches, and a film that takes place in the ballroom so you, will be able to experience the nights celebration too. There is also a special appreciation blessing ceremony for all of the chefs.
Proceeds support the Tibetan Aid Project’s mission to rebuild, preserve, and strengthen Tibet’s cultural and spiritual heritage for the benefit of the Tibetan people and all humanity. The Tibetan Aid Project is a volunteer run, and donor funded non-profit in Berkeley, CA that has been supporting Tibetan refugees since 1969 and is founded by Head Lama Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. The Tibetan culture is full of incredible knowledge, and sacred history that we aim to preserve through the transmission of text and art back to its origin. The Tibetan Aid Project funds the production and shipment of sacred Tibetan art and text to be delivered to Tibetan refugees and Buddhist pilgrims at the World Peace Ceremony in Bodh Gaya, India every year.
