After I contracted typhoid in 2006 at a pagoda in Yangon/Rangoon, Burma/Myanmar I was put on a course of serious antibiotics for ten days which completely wiped out any beneficial flora I had established in my intestines. Not only does it take at least three months to recover from typhoid but it takes at least a year to re-establish the proper balance of micro-organisms within the digestive tract after a course of antibiotics, therefore I have been eating very carefully ever since the experience.

Despite my careful diet I have yet to regain the full digestive abilities I previously had been so proud of. I tried various fasts and dietary regimes to try to help speed recovery, drinking raw goats milk, making yogurt and religiously avoiding processed foods.
