Sweating and bile smell

I am recovering from leaky gut syndrome and heavy metal deposits (among other things). For some reason I CANNOT take any probiotics without getting a super strong smell of bile. Because my hormones are low (age), I'm sweating a lot and the sweat will smell like bile if I do ANY probiotics. I tried to fool my body and eat only organic fruits and veggies, especially burdock root, collards and grapes, but I got a super strong bile smell again. I'm thinking it's die off. I can't tolerate it... imagine smelling like puke when you sweat. Has anyone experienced this?
I'm thinking that I have H. Pylori (no health insurance at the moment, so no testing can occur). I have had an uncomfortable feeling under my left ribs for decades. The doctors could never find anything.
I'm having flare ups that I can't tie to anything in particular. Flare-ups equal belching, bloating, constipation. I'm three days into using coated peppermint gel caps (supposed to directly affect the small intestines), cat's claw, & propolis. I went back to triphala too (I've been taking it on and off for years). I also went back to, just last night, taking organic virgin coconut oil directly. I cook with it and add it to my food but maybe direct is better?
I also take a boatload of other supps for adrenals and low hormones.
By the way, I did figure out that drinking Intestinal Drawing Formula by Health Force (betonite clay w/ herbs) directly after a meal will quell the bile smell but it takes a few hours.
Mainly though, I need a way to kill the H.P or whatever bacteria WITHOUT triggering the horrid bile smell. And just can't comprehend how / why the bile is activated by fruits and veggies ( and also activated when stomach is empty). Any suggestions?

I went to my Dr. today, and he thinks I might have H Pylori. I had a blood test done, so we'll see. But I have been smelling the worst smell. At first I thought it was something wrong with the furnace, like something smoky. Then, after I replaced the filter on the furnace it went away for a couple of days, so I thought that's what it was. But today it's back. The smell makes me think of really strong liquid smoke or something, like I'm sticking a whole bottle of it directly up my nose. Anyone else had any strange smells related to HP?

I have that same kinda smell, but its not due to H Pylori. I was tested it was negative, I think its down to the gallbladder. I have a number of stones plus I think my pancreas is all but dead. I had a private ultrasound to check how bad the stones are and it seems they are not too big however what I wasn't told is that my gallbladder has calcified (porcelane Gallbladder). When stones block bile ducts the bile seeps into the blood, normally you would see changes in eye colour etc but if there isn't a large build up it will come outb in your sweat. You both might want to check your gallbladder for stones or slurry.
