Oh man, I'm behind on this topic! Yes, acidophilus is SO good for you. I also had a colonoscopy done when I was having chronic diahrrea. When i got onto the acidophilus I lost 30 pounds and my stomach/intestine/bowel issues cleared up totally. It took a few months, but holy smackers, it worked.
I take the Metagenics brand. Refridgerated is best. At least 10 billion organisms is what you need. I took 2 a day for the first 3 or 4 months, and now I'm on a maintenance dose of 1 every day or every other day. My BM's are like clockwork. And I just feel better overall. In fact, it has allowed me to consume a little dairy now. I am lactose intolerant - big time, but I seem to be able to enjoy a few pieces of pizza every now and then! So maybe it will help with your food sensitivities too.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
