Hi. My son (aged13) has had horrendous diarrhoea and stomach cramps for 5 months since antibiotics. All sorts of tests h pylori etc. all negative. Seen a lady who does intolerance testing and she recommended silicoll gel amongst other things. He started with 5 ml 30 mins before food and is now on 15 ml. He's been on this for 7 weeks now and diarrhoea has stopped and tummy is much better. Has today been diagnosed with Eosinophilic oesophagitis and gastritis by hospital after biopsies. He is on other bits as well so if you want to know let me know!! She was a wonder. She told me basically what the hospital told me only 7 weeks ago. Who says alternative meds is a load if rubbish. She doesn't even sell them. I get them from holland and Barrett!! He says he couldn't survive without it. To the lady who asked: get it. It won't harm you but it might just help you.
