Just wanted to let everyone know that about 6 months ago I was put on a 3 month course of Tetracycline for what was being called tropical sprue (basically damaged small intestine villi with no identifiable cause), it looks exactly like celiacs under a scope. I only lasted about 2.5 months from severe candida but after coming off felt that whatever sort of parasite that was bothering me was gone. I still have stomach issues here and there but overall feel that it did the trick. I am not saying anyone else should do this and probably would have done something different if I were not talking to a gasto doctor but it seemed to do the trick. I picked up a bug after traveling and afte about 6 months or so got a PPTU from Metamatrix.
Good luck
if you have any questions let me know

Yeah, I am fairly certain it was 500mg 3 times a day, I was also prescribed 5mg of folic acid daily, this apparently heals the sprue and the Tetra gets the bug. Once again this is a specific treatment for what the medical community calls tropical sprue. If you want to be certain you can research Tropical sprue I took the standard dosage. I also followed up this course with a fecal transplant for 3 days. I know gross, but I thought it was neccessary.
Any more questions feel free to ask
