    Thanks for tuning into Dr. David Brady’s interview “GI MAP Stool Test for Anxiety and Fibromyalgia.” We’d love to hear your feedback and what gems stood out for you. Feel free to post your questions too. Trudy will be responding after 3pm PST/6pm EST and will invite the speaker to respond if needed ~ Mika/Customer support for Trudy

  • Marc says:

    Thank you Trudy and Dr. Brady for this interesting information. I am suffering from disabling treatment-resistant depression and anxiety. My current functional doc had me do the GI Effects Stool Profile from Genova. I’d say it was of limited value – 8 months later I have no improvement in my symptoms, though I often react to the supplements (eg: B6, inositol, B12). Do you think the GI Maps Stool Test would be more helpful for my situation?
    Also, any thoughts on how to find a more capable practitioner for healing anxiety and depression in the San Diego area? I feel very discouraged after working with someone since February and still not seeing any progress at all.
    Thank you so much for any suggestions you can offer!

    • Trudy Scott says:

      I’ve reached out to Dr. Brady to get some feedback. In the meantime I would say look into low serotonin, low GABA, low catechalmines and low endorphins with your practitioner and consider trials of the amino acids

      Learn more in my interview “GABA & Tryptophan: Gut-Anxiety Connections” and Dr. Peter Bongiorno’s interview “Gut-Brain Axis and Mental Health”

      • Trudy Scott says:

        Marc – I received this feedback from Dr. Brady: “The GI-MAP is indeed a superior testing platform, as it is a quantitative molecular method, so if GI issues are still a factor I would suggest having one done through a practitioner that can help you interpret the results properly and select any appropriate treatment. The provider I generally suggest you investigate, and determine for yourself if they are appropriate for you, is Bronner Handwerger, NMD in LaJolla, CA, just north of San Diego.”

  • Marc says:

    Also Biocidin seemed to cause a severe detox reaction…

  • Jonathan says:

    Ubiome went out of business.

  • dr. brady was clear and easy to understand. it was a very interesting discussion and i learned from it.

  • Lori says:

    Loved his talk! Lots of info to go over again and again. I do have a long question regarding Fibro. In a woman diagnosed with fibro having only the pain and tender points, is it normal for them to be highly susceptible to viruses to the point that they have pneumonia multiple times and times when they are diagnosed with pneumonia, flu, and a cold simultaneously? This
    occurs mostly in winter, but has also occured during the summer months. Hashimoto’s Disease is also present. Food transit time through the stomach was on the high side, total transit time has never been looked at. No IBS, no depression, no anxiety except as would be normal for someone without a central sensivity disorder. I appreciate your ideas toward this situation! Thank-you! Lori

    • Kel says:

      Hi Lori, jonathan landsman recommends high dose vitamin C on his website:
      Hope it helps☺

    • Trudy Scott says:


      I received this feedback from Dr. Brady: “It is my clinical experience, and also supported in the medical literature, that is is extremely rare to actually have a central-sensitivity and hyper-vigilance disorder like FM without some level of mild depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance, and IBS. If you are only experiencing chronic pain/muscle ache you should further explore other reasons, such as small fiber polyneuropathy, CRPS, inflammatory soft-tissue autoimmune disorders, etc.”

      We do talk about correct and incorrect diagnosis of fibromyalgia in our interview so be sure to go back and listen to that part

  • Kris says:

    Judy Mikovits, researcher, talks about a connection with Fibromyalgia and retroviruses. Any thoughts about that? Interesting talk.

  • Miri says:

    Thank you for informative talk,
    Does oregano fights just the bad bacteria or can it damage the good bacteria too?

  • Liisa says:

    The list of the Fibro syptoms and causes sounded to me exactly the same as in CFS and LYME, exept the tickbite, and any of these cannot be tested or diagnosed properly. The only working prescription medicin for all these were LDN, as far as I know, GAba too, but it’s forbidden here in Finland for some commercial reason, I guess. Lost my hope already.

  • Kathryn says:

    I was initially diagnosed with ME which was changed to CFS and then FM was added in 98 so now just say ME/CFS/FM as all symptoms fit. I have just taken myself off a bucket load of prescribed meds, the main one being Physeptone which was prescribed for my Chronic pain, but never really helped it. It then seemed to cause a whole cascade of serious side effects – severe, uncontrolled hypertension, weight gain, mis diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes, severe GORD requiring double strength PPI’s, severe depression etc, etc. It took 4 years to come off it and then in the last year I have rapidly come off many off my other meds until I am now down to only a couple Of B/P Meds BD instead of the 25 to 30 tablets I was taking with my Pain meds.
    I have been struggling with a bad bacterial gut infection this past year which was eventually diagnosed as Eggerthella Lenta but I have been struggling with the exhaustion caused by the die back of the bacteria from the meds I am on. And my whole body is very inflamed, my joints and muscles ache SO much every time I try to exert myself even a little.
    I am wondering if I should be taking Bit B12 injection supplements as my gut may not be absorbing the vitamins I am taking orally?

  • Amy Yarbrough says:

    Great talk. Thank you for all the work you do… a proper diagnosis is half the cure… true. It would be so excellent if you got together with Judy Mikovits to brainstorm. She is cutting edge!! So much so, that the FDA criminalized her without charge and jailed her for refusing to turn over her OWN research notebooks to them. Talk about damage control for industry. The FDA took over her work. She found a SPECIFIC retroviral infection which is implicated (I think even causally?) in fibromyalgia. I will go grab some links on this story for you… also, you can find her friend /also a scientist Robyn Erland…. if it’s hard to find Judy Mikovits contact info…

    • Trudy Scott says:

      Thanks for sharing – I’ll pass this on to Dr. Brady. I believe she was also on the recent retrovirus summit that Dr. Davidson hosted. I have a lot to learn about all this

      • Kel says:

        Yes I have such respect for Judy Mikovits, I have her book “Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases”. Its on Audible. The government are so afraid of being culpable, they’d rather destroy progress

  • Amy Yarbrough says:

    Some more info…

     Judy Mikovits is a scientist and researcher who was vilified and removed from her prestigious position, studying retroviruses, because of what she found and its link to vaccines. Here’s an article explaining:

    She actually served jail time over having her assistant secure her personal research notebooks, so that federal agents didn’t steal them. 

    “These astonishing—if not downright bizarre—events cap a 2-year period in which Mikovits has been mired in a topsy-turvy research debate that saw her work praised and then derided by prominent colleagues.”

    The FDA itself has now taken over Judy Mikovits’ work on retroviruses and contaminated cell lines, basically admitting that they need to clean up their act because vaccines are currently contaminated. This is now damage control for the industry, instead of safety research being done to protect vaccine consumers.

    The vax industry is liability free for a reason… with the Supreme Court deeming them “unavoidably unsafe”… but we aren’t allowed to discuss this, because of money… vaccines fund big pharmacy’s work, and the mainstream media is at least 70% big pharma funded… but anyway, I applaud the bravery and work of Judy Mikovits. To stand against the machine (for the betterment of humanity) is beyond brave and noble.

  • Stella I. Tsartsara says:

    Ok I have to say this: I have followed all the serious scientific series about GI health and none of them has provided us with the best GI test there is on
    Really Trudy how to do you do this picking the best there is out there on every field? Way to go!
