    Probiotics!!!! Fix your gut!

    Shop Now
    Do you suffer from IBS? For the past nearly 7 years I have had a terrible case of daily diarrhea with excruciating pain! Numerous trips to the doctor and all kinds of invasive exams and tests came up with nothing. I tried all kinds of different diets - nothing worked. Finally I decided to start taking a high quality high count Probiotic, and I drink 16oz of kombucha every single day. (sometimes 2 if I feel like it).

    I am now 20 days pain and diarrhea FREE!!!! I have a healthy, normal, daily BM.

    Probiotics............ fix your gut flora!!

    Some gut disorders can cause decreased gut flora count, some can cause increased. In Tomi's case, it seems to be the former.

    You should read this. Probiotics are half the equation, prebiotics the other half. Your kombucha is a actually a great prebiotic. Well done!

    I can vouch for both kombucha and probiotics. I also have IBS. I'm not convinced that my gut can be fixed, but these interventions have been helpful.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Probiotics and PB fixed by gut. Then after 9 months of PB, a Mexican Restaurant destroyed it again. Now I'm doing the same cure. It seems to be working.

    If eating one meal can undo months of "fixing" then it was never fixed.

    would have to agree with that. The point of pre- and pro- biotics is to balance the gut flora. One single meal shouldn't throw that balance out of whack.

    Have you been tested for H. pylori? Something worth checking on.

    The question I always want to ask is: which bugs are best to supplement with? Is it better to get as wide a variety as possible, or are there some tried and true ones we should be sure to get?
