This link is from Kiwi44's post in another thread this morning:journals.lww.com/jcge/Fulltext/2010/04000/Probiotic_Therapy_for_Ulcerative_Colitis.7.aspxThe most effective probiotics used were E. coli Nissle strain and VSL#3
I had been sporadically ordering E. coli Nissle (brand name Mutaflor) from Canada for well over a year. This morning when I tried to reorder I was told that the FDA has blocked sale to USA.
Male/59 DX ulcerative colitis Feb08, possible Crohn's colitis DX Mar10.
No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 especially helpful. Food journal instead of SCD.
