Hi, have you red Elaine Gottschalls sites about
her SCD diet and her suggestions about
what kind of probitics Crohnies should avoid and what to use? If not, here it is: Avoid any probiotics containing the name Bifidobacterium bifidus, either of them. Those just mentioned makes the intestines worse, they make an overgrowth of bacterias. (makes u worse with diarrhea and bloating) she says. Use instead probiotics like these: Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus Thermophilus, Lactobacillus Acidophilus. There are also other combinations that are fine.
Here are Elains diet: www.scdiet.com
Some also use a yeast called: Saccaromyces Boulardii. Thise one may break down bacteria like clostridium difficile.
Anyway, if u buy probiotics, avoid also the boxes that have mixed FOS within. You may find out more by reading about
