She is controversial but sometimes has good advice.

Leave it to RN and the FTA hanger on's to promote resistant starch fibers as the panacea for all ailments even when many report adverse reactions. Remember, you will never find a moderate view here.

Thank you so much for posting that! First of all, Itsthewooo is my favorite poster of all time and I love reading anything she writes. In my book, she's definitely one of the smartest, most well-read and most honest posters out there.

But, more importantly, my wife has had these exact problems for many years which I have finally figured out has to be SIBO. Just like in the post, probiotics seemed to help a little at first but then made things worse (as logically they would).

I've been looking for rifamycin at a reasonable price with no success so far, but her solution of 1 tbsp of vinegar before every meal might be even better (and certainly cheaper). I hope one or the other will resolve her issues soon because they seem to be getting worse.

I'll try to convince her of the ACV treatment.

I don't know about the ACV. our stomach acid is so much more potent. can't imagine that a little bit of vinegar would do much of anything. But wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

The bacterial infestation called SIBO is not in the stomach but farther down in the small intestine. Since the source of the bacteria is the colon and it has been named "overgrowth", I'm assuming this tends to be in the last part of the small intestine.

As for stomach acid, it doesn't get anywhere near here - it is completely neutralized in the first inch or so of your small intestine. If it weren't so, you "eat" (digest) your own intestines as they don't have the protective mucous lining the stomach has against the extremely acidic solution in the stomach.

So, is acetic acid somehow not neutralized right after the stomach and makes it as an acid to the infected site? I don't know. The acid in the stomach is many times more acidic than vinegar and I don't know if whatever targets it right after the stomach would also neutralize acetic acid or not.

Yeah sorry I wasn't very clear! Like you said, it just doesn't make sense that the acetic acid would somehow make it all the way down the small intestine when stomach acid is so much more potent and doesn't make it there.
Anyway if it works it works and not much of a downside to it. Maybe there's something else going on, not the acid itself, but something else about the ACV.
Either way from what I gather starches would be best to be avoided for SIBO, even resistant starches.
