Bob, awhile back you recommended the "pepto bismal" test to someone who has pretty severe arthritis symptoms. She did the test and felt a lot better the next morning but I can't remember what feeling better indicated. Can you please repeat how to do the test and why? Thank you.

The pepto test can only be run AFTER you have run the elimination diet (and determined your major food allergens) and moved to the appropriate metabolic diet. You won't be able to FEEL the difference until you've 'cleared' symptoms created by food allergens and metabolic problems.
The test consists of taking 4 pepto tablets (the round ones) right before retiring. If you wake the next morning and notice that your symptoms are significantly improved then you'll want to continue using a 'pulsed dose' regimine that I've developed.
Basically the pepto test tells me to what extent enteric toxins (probably from gram negative bateria) are adding to your arthritis sypmtoms.
