Post Enterococcus Species and Sugar
Hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted, just wanted to drop in and say hi. Hope you all are doing well.

I've been fighting the good fight on my own, still dealing with the enterococcus beast as best I can. I've been doing some additional homework on it as well, basically in regard to what feeds and proliferates this particular class of species.

It seems like enterococcus species primarily feeds on sugar, and simple carbs. When I went on a sugar and carb free diet for a month, my SIBO went away completely, and my prostatitis began to get better as I no longer had to take flomax.

A few girls have told me that eating pineapple (for example) makes the semen taste sweeter. Now, if that's actually true, then could the prostate absorb fake, and natural sugars and fuel these infections? Maybe.

I'm going on a hardcore diet again, anyway, like before, except I'm going to try and stick to it for 3-6 months this time. I'll post results. Here's some research in regard to what enterococcus likes to eat:

If we can manage to avoid these foods and starve it, in combination with medicine, we may have a much higher chance of getting rid of it once and for all.

The best way to manage the symptoms is Diet Modification. I was diagnosed with bacterial prostatitis with unidentified pathogen. An extremely strict diet ( I call it Cave man's diet because I felt like living in a cave away from civilization) helped me manage my symptoms for the past 8 months now without any flare up mostly between 95-98% symptom free.
Avoid any form of sugar at any cost. Replace it with stevia in moderation. These includes fruits and vegetables high in starch and sugar. Eat green apples and berries only in moderation, 2-3x a week.
Avoid grains and carbs esp. white rice, corn, potatoes and bread. Replace it with quinoa, millet, buckwheat, basmati, brown, black or red rice in moderation.
Avoid gluten, milk and dairy products except plain organic kefer and plain organic yogurt. No vinegar (apple cider vinegar only)
Eliminate hydrogenated fats. Use raw, organic, cold pressed coconut oil only for cooking and olive oil for salad. No any other oil is allowed.
Avoid alcohol like wine, beer especially
Eat green leafy vegetables (no squash or carrots, avocado is ok), organic eggs, organic chicken, grass fed beef (in moderation, once a week), wild caught fish and seeds and nuts like almond, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds in moderation (no peanuts or other nuts)
Avoid caffeine. Replace it with herbal teas.
The most important thing is BONE BROTH every single day to get the healing benefits.
If you can follow my diet, you will most likely see a remarkable improvement in one month. I am probably the most disciplined CP sufferer but it's worth the sacrifice.
I hope this does not sound like a torture to you LOL

Yeah man, that's basically what I did for a month and everything got better. That kind of diet balances out the gut and helps to repair the intestinal lining as well, so absorption issues also clear up. I have a theory that zinc, vitamin K2, and vitamin D absorption are off in some cases, which may contribute to the prostatitis misery.

It could all be like Hippocrates said, all disease starts in the gut.

I'm currently doing a 3 day bone broth fast. No foods allowed for 3 days, just bone broth and water. I'm on my second day now. I can't wait to finish it.

I gave bone broth a try, for some reason it gives me wicked gastritis, I guess it's somewhat acidic. I'll try again though once everything is healed up fully.

I take bone broth twice daily with a normal healthy diet. Helps with symptoms and cipro side effects.

I love bone broth. We homemake it on our wood stove with left over beef/chicken bones. While I can't say that it's helped my prostatitis at all...I love drinking it as a tea or soup.

Thanks yakuh11 and Inflamed for this info. I shall have to give this a try. I have got my prostate symptoms under control thanks to NAC, but still have vas deferens inflammation. I did culture positive for enterococcus.
