I am keen to know if anyone here has focus and concentration issues, but does not have gut issues.
Because I am pretty much convinced I must have small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and having read around a bit, especially this account of a SIBO recovery, in which the person reported lack of energy and severe focus and concentration issues, which he recovered from by treating SIBO, I believe this to be the root of that particular element of my PFS.
Having tested my waking body temperature and found it to be consistently below the optimum, I believe that fin has had a negative effect on my thyroid, which in turn has lowered my body temperature and made it a breeding ground for unwanted bacteria, parasites and pathogens, and there is a lot of information online about how these can have a knock-on auto-immune effect, as well as causing focus and concentration issues. Having spoken to some people with ADD, I see a great deal of comparison with their symptoms and how I am now, and again, in the blog I linked the guy says he basically seemed to develop something like ADD among other symptoms.
So I am really keen to know if there are people out there who have these focus and concentration issues, anxiety, ADD like symptoms, who can eat whatever they want and have completely normal bowel movements.
Just to note, it is possible to have a compromised gut and not show digestive symptoms, so if there is anyone with these problems but no noticeable gut issues, have they tested their waking body temperature? I just wonder if it could be possible that this same possible chain of events has affected them without them displaying noticeable digestive issues, and a consistently low (below 36C / 97F) would point to thyroid dysfunction, which again could make them susceptible to colonisation from nasties.
