  • Probiotics...how much is too much?

    I take BOTH Threelac and Kyodophilus probiotics daily. I take 1 pack of Threelac and 2 Kyo pills three times a day. This has helped me greatly. What is the primal opinion on probiotics...I may up this to 4 times during my PMS week when I have more cravings and blood sugar imbalances.

    I've never heard of too much probiotic. That's like saying too much protein.

        How long have you been taking Threelac? I used to use it all of the time with great results, but a couple of years ago it stopped having the same positive effects on me. Any similar experiences? Maybe I should try it again with my greatly improved diet.
        I wish I liked to eat liver.

          When you say it has helped you greatly, what has it helped with?

            Too much protein can cause kidney problems.

              hasn't Mark debunked that myth?

                Maybe, but I work in the renal unit and I know it is true.

                  what do you do in the unit and how do you *know* the connection is true?

                  are you a renal physician?

                  even that may not be persuasive - look at all the gastros treating Chrohns disease and ulcerative colitis and telling patients to follow low fat, high fibre diets, increasing grains or people who "work in" diabetics clinics and push the usual cw rhetoric, heck most doctors push cw

                    Is Mark a renal physician? I am a nurse on the ward and have seen a lot of cases of (mostly women) brought in because they have been following high protein and vlc carb diets. I suppose the only way to tell then is go ahead and eat excess proteins and see what happens. ANYTHING in excess is potentialy bad for you.

                      LOL!

                      "anything in excess...". Anymore CW classics? Food pyramid perhaps?

                        Most of us are here to try discern what even health professionals think it true, and what is actually true.

                          I had chronic yeast issues following my 2nd pregnancy...this has helped in that I havent had a yeast infection since. I feel like I do reach a threshold and need to up my dose (or take a week off) to have the benefits remaining. I also think it starts to not work so well if I let too much sugar slip into my diet (even in the form of super dark chocolate). I also have issues with my skin on my legs, super itchy (probably candida related) and this helps with that!

                            If you are implying what I think you are implying with that statement I hate this type of thinking. I got news for you, I am not a doctor but I know appreciably more than even your average endo about looking at bloodwork related to hormones and proper hormone replacement protocols. I work with investments and also know plenty of people who know more about what I do than I even do. Who cares if Mark isn't a renal physician. You know what we call a C student in med school? A doctor. And 95% of doctors push the wrong types of food on all of us, so forgive me if I am not excited about the "well he isn't a doctor!" type of thinking. And a study from the Univ of Connecticut just proved this wrong, too much protein can only be an issue if you ALREADY have pre-existing, unknown kidney conditions. Healthy kidneys you have no problem.

                              I agree codered5, we all owe Mark and Taubes and many others in the Paleo field who are not health professionals so much for properly sorting through the research and facts.

                              I will accept Mark's considered research (and often read the links and research myself) any day.
