OKAY.. can anyone tell me what probiotic really works? I never get lucky with these pills and my digestion is just about none existant . I take Roxy for pain which will cause constipation and IV zethromax and tons of other vitamin and reminerilizatin.
But I live on cogffee enemas. and really feel major part of my exhaustion is GUT related.

You can alswys tell the people with the good digestion ellimination...they are HAPPY and actually GIGGLE.

Hey bucci,

Any probiotic that is refrigerated is good to take. I can tell you that it has helped me tremendously. I used to be on stomach meds for ulcers and a bad stomach and now I am off because of the probiotics. Not to say that this will happen to everyone, but it did help me.

Taking a high dose of powdered vitamin C will help clean you out and make your stool loose enough to go to the bathroom. I have to do this every now and then because I stay constipated. I take about 3000-4000mg of vitamin C when I am constipated. You may want to ask your doctor first though.

I have a fondness for Kefir & have had some pretty good results with it. It can be bought in a health food store & in some grocery stores. There is a website where people can go to put in a request for someone to send them a 'starter batch' of Kefir grains. It also has a lot of info on how to grow your own kefir & some general info about kefir.

Here is a link to Dom's Kefir site. You'll have to copy & paste into your browser window I believe.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

Which probiotics help a particular individual depend on specific uniquenesses of the individual...therefore, what works great for one may not be helpful for another. My Mom, for example, told me the other day that she has tried many different probiotics and never felt any different until she tried one that is enteric coated (to bypass the stomach acid that some think kills the "friendlies"). I've tried a number of different ones with no help (or they made me feel sicker) as well, and finally settled on one that seems to acutally help - it is a chewable tablet version made by Jarrow (called "Yum-Yum Dophilus").

Also, you might consider a probiotic "implant" - the usual procedure for this is to get a colonic (colon cleansing) and then the practitioner puts some probiotics in your colon afterwords. The goal is to hold it in for a sufficient time for the critters to stick to the wall of the colon and restore colonies of "friendlies" after the cleansing of the colonic has removed the junk from the colon.

I like Metagenics Ultra Flora DF  (Dairy Free).  Plain yogurt is also great (no sugar added) if you can tolerate dairy.
