Ellen Pendleton was unaware of C. diff when she came down with show-stopping symptoms. Intuition and internet research led her to figure out what caused her symptoms, then discovered what to do and what NOT to do. The C. diff book is her journal from beginning to wellness, offering options and links to help you make decisions.

"Now, . . . it's a home remedy but black tea could stop the diarrhea. And you could take some Imodium. Do you have any Imodium?" says the dentist on the phone after I call him to report after-procedure symptoms.

I pause, wrinkle my face and say, "But what if I have Clostridium difficile bacteria? I read that one should not take any anti-diarrhea medications, especially Imodium, because with Clostridium difficile it could make things worse."

"C. difficile is very rare. I doubt that you have it. Take your temperature and call me back, . . . not right away, . . . in a couple of hours, and let me know if you have a fever. Okay?"

Imagine what your life would be like if you didn't have Clostridium difficile induced symptoms. This book will strengthen your knowledge to allow more informed decisions regarding treatment and diet. This book helps you with information to decrease painful symptoms, improve your health and boost your immune system.

With experience as a former associate editor for a monthly magazine and a documentation technician with an Associate Degree of Science in Electronics, Pendleton logged the symptoms, information, diet, drug options, process of healing, resources, treatment options, diet, communications, correspondence, tips, hints and emotions on her path to recovery. She then felt compelled to share her journal to open the conversation and increase public awareness.

If your symptoms suspect Clostridium difficile bacteria or if your lab tests have detected C. diff, some important decisions need to be made immediately: "Should I take anti-diarrhea medications like Imodium?" NO!!! NO!!!(CONTRAINDICATIVE). Should I take antibiotics like metronidazole (Flagyl), vancomycin, fidaxomicin? What about probiotics? Which ones? Prebiotics? Fecal Transplant? Diet? What foods can I eat? What is bacteriophage therapy? What about a non-pathogenic E. coli course? Mutaflor and Florastor? Pendleton has researched the options and is sharing the information.

Clostridium difficile and antibiotic-induced colitis (CDAD) was her latest adventure, slowing her down to a stop. With her electronic and editorial background, she tackled the Internet research project and logged the findings (treatments, antibiotics, food, probiotics, prebiotics) and activities on her path of recovery. Getting well was the biggest challenge. Journaling was natural.
