In terms of probiotics the one that worked towards the end of the flare only was renew life critical care. Its this one for US http://www.amazon.com/Renew-Life-Ultimate-50-Billion/dp/B001LIW11Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427731676&sr=8-1&keywords=renew+life
Bear in mind it only worked for me for the last few ibs symptoms but not my flare itself. It may help others at different stages of course.
In terms of the chinese herbs I have no idea what he gives me as it is all very advanced. The script
is changed according to your symptoms after each consultation. The early herbs were all targeting inflammation, then he worked on strengthening the colon to repair damage (an important stage conventional medicine does not treat) then finally worked on my ibs type symptoms. He has his own labs and basically vacuum packs them after after boiling the herbs into one liquid portion for each morning and night. It is very sophisticated. Qing Dai alone did nothing of note for me so I thought before I right it off let me research the best practitioner in the UK with a proven record for IBD cases. I am not promoting him because it may not work for everyone but it did take a year of working with him to reach this stage. He is still working on me in fact to make me better in terms of energy levels and appetite etc as he looks at the problem in total picture.
He does lecture around the world including the US so he may be able to recommend someone in your area. He actually runs courses to teach other TCM practitioners around the globe on how to treat our condition.
His website is www.avicenna.co.uk and his name is Mazin el Khafaji (not sure on spelling!)
hope this helps feel free to ask more questions if required.
