I think more docs should prescribe probiotics as well. They have helped me a lot. I've had IBS for years and now IBD as well. Probiotics have been the icing on the cake for me. I have to take them every day though and I am still lactose intolerant despite taking them. Good to hear a success story and of a doctor who is interested in getting to the heart of the problem and not just throwing pills at patients.
