    Gut Flora - Repopulating a damaged gut

    Shop Now
    I just read that latest gut report Mark put out and Dr. Art Ayers blog as well. I'm curious on What vegetables to eat to help repopulate the gut flora of Chrohnic gut. However I'm worried about the fiber content since the roughage tends to cause bloating and severe pain.

    Should certain vegetables be off limits?
    would the grocery store vegetables have the bacteria on them? And could you wash them off a bit to get some dirt particles and possible bugs off? Or is the dirt where the bacteria is?

    long-fermented foods basically i think are very helpful, better than probiotic supplements at least.

    i've also read just generally i diversity of spices and herbs can aide positive gut re-population.

    I have mainly phased that out. Does it take a long time to heal from that?

    +1 on the yogurt recipe from BreakingtheViciousCycle. It tastes awesome and works way better than commercial yogurt.

    Will a full fat comm yogurt work good? I do not fill that I have any problems with anything gut related, other than it's to big. I eat yogurt for dessert mixed with berrys a couple of times a week.

    Yogurt never has bothered me. I don't know how the bacteria would survive the stomach acid. There is something called a prebiotic which is often perscribed with a probiotic.

    Mark has done an article on yoghurt. To summarise yoghurt has good bacteria that will live in your stomach and take up room that bad bacteria would otherwise inhabit. Bad news is that almost all yoghurt you buy has been so thoroughly treated that it has very little of the good stuff. Go and read Mark's article and then you'll know what to look for when buying yoghurt. Or you could make your own.
