I have stomach issues. I have been to numerous doctors. I haven't gotten a definite answer as to what the problem is. H.pylori blood test came back negative. Upper GI series came back normal. I am leaning towards GERD or gastritis or gastritis with GERD. I am taking 40mg of Omeparazole 1x per day.

Anyways, has anyone taken Pro-biotics and had it help their stomach ailments? I am thinking about starting a daily regime of Acidophilus. I cannot imagine it would hurt.

I am curious for any insight....

I take Align at suggestion of two doctors but I'm not sure if it helps much. I take it because I feel like it can't hurt and maybe I would feel worse without it.

I'm pretty sure that probiotics are for the lower digestive tract. Anyway, I use them and have GERD and haven't observed any improvement.
