I wouldn’t use the term ‘starve off bacteria’
The term is more like ‘see improvement in symptoms’
I can’t speak for the water detox people, I’ve read those posts too but I don’t know how they were testing their breath or if they were truly having only water.
I know my dietitian said my symptoms would WORSEN, before they cleared up.
The standard timeframe for an elimination diet is 6 weeks.
Did the water people really only have water and nothing else for 6 weeks?
Seems highly unlikely.
By the 6th week, would it still be in the "worsen" stage? Or can I conclude if the diet works?
I think water diet is usually 1-2 weeks.
