My doctor recommended I take Florastor after I found out I had celiac.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I eat a half cup of yogurt and a cup of blueberries every morning. It is so good. I pick blueberries every summer and ran out way to quickly this year. Next year I am picking lots more!!!

I buy either low heat pasteurized milk or occasionally raw. I have to drive further to get raw milk, but the taste, ooo lah lah!!

Turns out raw milk has enzymes that help you to digest it properly. When they steam pasteurize milk at 212 degrees it kills everything including the vitamins emoticon

To make yogurt the milk only has to be heated to 110 degrees which helps to preserve most of the enzymes.

I've read it can be make with almond milk, etc..but have never tried it.

My husband grabs a container of yogurt and a baggy full of granola and eats it every morning for breakfast! He really likes it.

We went to a Celiac conference this fall and the Dr that was the speaker said she has all of her Celiac patients take probiotics. I think Accuflora was one she recommends. Dr. Peter Green talked at the conference a year ago and mentioned Align. Both can be purchased at Walmart.

I bought a bottle of PB8 for my neighbor who was on antibiotics for months and months. She took the bottle to her doctors office and asked him about it. He loved it and she takes it now daily with great success.

Me; however, I need something better and stronger. Right now I am taking Flora Smart www.renewlife.com/florasmart-24-bill

I also make my own yogurt. It is super simple to do, lots cheaper than buying it and I know exactly what ingredients go into it.

This is one of the two yogurt makers I have. There are less expensive ones you can find that I'm sure work just as well. I doubt seriously that I paid more than $30 for either of the ones I have now. I've had them for years and they still work great. It is a great investment.

Thank you for all of your suggestions I am seeing my nutritionist on Thursday. I am hoping the probiotics help my body in a lot of ways. I always noticed there were some foods that instantly made me feel better yogurt, fish, and bananas. I couldn't explain at the time. As far as yogurt goes maybe it was the good bacteria in it. :)

I use a probiotic called "PB 8" that I get at vitminshoppe.com or vitamin shop store or at my health food store or at Fred Meyer. It is in capsule form, and is rated well by my naturopath and in studies I have read. It comes in both dairy based and vegetarian non dairy formula. It has worked great for me and I notice digestive issues if I don't take it. It is gluten and everything else free which works for my allergic little body! Smiles Barb

Oh not that test. I remember in the early 2000's the first time I had an endoscopy and how big the tube for the camera was it's much thinner now and not a big deal for me. I'm used to them. Doc should email me back and let me know if they think it is a good idea.

Good stuff. I use to wish my GP took these concerns seriously so she's agreed to 'end it'. I'm scheduled for the rubber-hose and camera test. Good grief. (Watch what you wish for! hee hee)

I love kefir and it is so good for you. I have also seen adds for RAW Probiotics in Living Without magazine that I might try. I want to have my doctor check me out to see if I may have other things bothering my system besides gluten. I will let you know how it goes.

Hello! Bloating and gas was a problem for me. I'm lactose and gluten intolerant and have tried the expensive supplement you'll find in the refrigirated section of health food stores and active culture via capsule. But my preference is the most natural food - Kefir. It's like yogourt but so much healthier. It's thicker in texture and a little more tart in flavour. You can research it on the net via: kefir probiotics. Here's a bit of info I found for you.

I was wondering if people would recommend probiotics and if they could recommend a brand? I am going to see my nutritionist and I think it could really help with my gut. Recently I was glutinized and I hate to think of all of my progress being hurt. :(
