in reality its the worst thing that people can do, people now think they know more then MD and experienced nurses cause they have a smartphone.

Had a sick kid once, doctor just kept prescribing more antibiotics. I implored with the doctor that something else must be wrong and as my kid keeps getting sicker. Ended up taking him to the ER 8 times. The first 7 doctors at the ER said they couldn't find anything wrong with him. 8th doctor asked about his stool sample and learned that neither his primary doctor or the previous 7 doctors had done one. Stool sample showed he had c-diff. Took this information back to primary doctor, he suggested... more antibiotics. He got sicker and again his doctor suggested, you guessed it, more antibiotics.

Finally having enough, I reached out to the Internet and found a large support group of people also finding state licensed drug dealers pretty much useless. Hundreds of them had logged daily diets and created charts on the most favorable diets that had worked on curbing c-diff. I put my kid on the top diet and he was doing so much better after 1 day. Within a month he was retested and completely cured of c-diff without ever taking another antibiotic. The entire ordeal lasted 8 months and could have been taken care of in 2 weeks. Oh, and were he did he even get c-diff in the first place? From going to the hospital with the flu and picking it up there because of their inability to maintain a sterile environment.

Also, I find nurses to be the absolute worst. They have MD envy and like to tell people their "opinion" as opposed to actually going through all the steps to at least become an MD before dispensing medical advice. I think they should STFU and stick to cleaning bed pans or whatever simple tasks they were trained to do so the actual doctors can focus on their job of prescribing medicine for big pharma.

the c diff is also contracted by over prescription of ANTIBIOTICS. you are rightfully angry. but read my other comment, its not all of us, i just wanted to do this to shed some light on an area that is scary or unkown to so many people.

im not saying everyone is good and pure here, not at all. i do the best i can with the time that i have. There are a ton of shitty doctors out there some that could care less about patient care. there pleanty of nasty spiteful nurses too. That sounds like a shitty experience, and as an expectant dad i am fully aware of how that crap plays out. All i am saying is that A lot not ALL the time you find patients who are non compliant (sometimes that is ok) and if the first thing a md does aint does not cure them they sue. again im sorry about your experience but you gotta know that not everyone in the medical field is part of the small but deadly cabal that is looking to kill and maim with vaccines and experimental treatments.

Care to share that diet, or at least link to it?

This was 15 years ago, try this website http://www.cdiffsupport.org/

I vaguely remember the diet, but I believe it had rice, bananas and a few other things. I also recall that you were only supposed to drink water, definitely avoid milk and sodas and so on.
