RaisinOak I was not suffering from ibs symptoms. I been to the ibsgroup forum thinking I might have candida or sibo but I don't. I did not have leaky gas. I did take flagyl which is Antibiotic to treat sibo. Somehow it worked for me but then the odor came back. Problem with the Antibiotic is that it did not work the second time around. Plus prolong use of Antibiotic is bad for you. Some people with Halitosis also take the flagyl. I used to drink the gse with water but did not see major improvements basically because I was targeting the wrong place. The odor seem to be originating in my nose maybe i had a bacterial or fungal infection up there.
