Hi Elle, you can get probiotics from fermented foods. Not that you may enjoy putting sauerkraut on everything with a side of sour pickles but hey, maybe you would lol.
I'm not very good at listening to doctors when they say not to use natural remedies. I'm a trial and error kind of person. I suppose I may learn my lesson but not so far, fingers crossed ;)
I mentioned in a previous topic that eating more raw veggies, specifically cabbage, broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts and kale have helped me tremendously with balancing acidity/ alkalinity in my digestive system. They might be worth a try, unless ofcourse you have a sensitivity to them. If your gut is working effectively then it helps everything else.
