Probiotics

Elaine spent a year doing library research on probiotics and realised that the whole area is very iffy. The one conclusion that she came out with is: “That Lactobacillus acidophilus had been shown to be very helpful for many schizophrenics, bowel patients, etc. over a period of 100 years.”

However, a report was published in the New England Journal of Medicine by a gastroenterologist that stated that one doctor found that all his Crohn's patients had an OVERGROWTH of Lactobacillus acidophilus which he felt was contributing to the disease. Unfortunately this found its way into the reference books that pharmacies use.

Elaine feels that we should keep our probiotic ingestion to a minimum and get helpful bacteria from our SCD™ yoghurt and so displace the harmful bacteria.
