Hi all I’ve been getting these cramps for a few days now, I’m on a herb only protocol and think I need to up my probiotics.

I am only taking saccharomyces bouldarri at the moment, I’ve looked into florastor but they will take about 3 weeks to get to me from amazon, I am also drinking kefir.

Any reccommendationes whilst I am waiting for them to arrive?

I take a few different ones every day.

i buy two at the local health food store.
I also buy Kefir from the grocery store.

In addition to those three, I take the saccaromyces bouldarri plus another one -Genestre HMF Forte which my LLND sold to me.

So i have 5 that I rotate. Always taking minimum two per day.

Can you buy one from the health food store...or grocery store near you?

Yes I can get to a store tomorrow, think I need to get a few and rotate like you Girlie. Will see what they have and pick 2 or 3.

Thanks Girlie.

S. Boulardii is a yeast, not a bacteria, in case you didn't know. I tried one capsule of it, and the next day I felt awful - nausea, dizziness, felt like my brain was being poisoned. I suspect it killed some Candida and released mercury or other heavy metals. At least that's what it felt like. Also had some intestinal discomfort for about 6 days as the yeast made its way through the intestines. There is one member on here who has a systemic yeast infection from S. boulardii. You can search here read what she said about it. Not to scare you just to make you aware.
