PROBIOTICS

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.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
