E.coli: You must be more specific. It is normal inhabitant of colon. Some strains are lethal, diarrhea etc. Need details. In meantime w/o knowing ur problem, a safe thing is pro-biotics. Greek style yogurt, align or bayers (aspirin) colon health, culturrelle. All otc. It is a common contaminant in food, water so seek medical evaluation.
