Stomach Upset For Several Days

About 5 days ago I went to work and had an upset stomach that was'nt ultra painful but was more of a major discomfort.
Anyway,I went home and it would'nt go away.
Now,I should say that I have had IBS for sometime (allbeit minor and occasional) I also had a period of a few weeks (dating back to Xmas) where I was under a bit of stress and anxiety.
I went to see a Naturopath and she checked me out and thinks that it has to do with the flora content on my stomach (bad bacteria). She gave me Bio-Gest (an enzyme)....Citricidin (kills off bacteria) and Glutamine(helps build and protect lining). I have now been taking the stuff for 4 days and I have seen a couple of changes but not anywhere near 100% (ie: my appetite is a bit better,my weight is steady ...after losing a bit,the gurgling stomach still happens at night and on empty stomach...but not quite as much). I read that products like Citricidin not only kill off the bad bacteria but also the good (which is why the Naturopath has told me to take something called HMF Podwer (good bactertia)after finishing a weeks worth of the Citricidin.
Am I unrealistic in expecting more immediate improvement (I'm still off work because I can't concentrate and the stomach is still a bit upset when I get up in the morning)?
I also read about something called the Herxheimer Effect where folk taking products such as Citricidin have a side effect that feels like the flu (after I take my first batch in the morning my chest feels a bit sore.
Has anyone experienced this?
Do I need to give it more time (perhaps until after the good bacteria is sent in.....in two days).
Is it maybe nothing to do with bacteria?
Thanks
