    Dr. Enlander posted a you tube video a couple of days ago about making his MAF 878 widely available to buy as a food supplement.



    Is anybody currently using this?

    I have a number of questions I'd like to ask.

    I'm really interested too. Also I would love to know how dosing works. I know some people on the Gcmaf injections find they do best starting on a very low dose, something like 0.10ng. How would this translate to the yoghurt dose? If anyone knows, would be great to hear. Many thanks

    I found this on Chris's site

    "Dr. Enlander, with pharmalogical help, has formulated a probiotic product, MAF 878, that most likely produces MAF – and a lot of it. This probiotic product is a tailored combination of various lactobacilli and other probiotics, in various carefully articulated combinations. The yogurt is taken at a variable dosage once a day. It does not need to be refrigerated. The target dosage is three ounces per day, generally taken with a protein, some roughage and olive oil. Patients get MAF 878 at Dr. Enlander’s office and it is modestly priced."

    Or, you can order it from his FaceBook page: https://www.facebook.com/derek.enlander

    There is also a discussion going on there.

    He will sell it to non-patients as well as patients!

    I'm wondering if anyone who normally does poorly with probiotics is on it and how they are faring.

    I can't see anything on his facebook page. Just a question about whether he was going to host a conference in May. Do you have to be his 'friend' to see this discussion?

    Maybe you do have to be his "friend." I'll post some of it here:

    We now have available MAF 878 an oral probiotic MAF produced by a starter of "good" bacteria grown in a yoghurt medium. No prescription is required .

    The bacteria "starter' is added to yoghurt it needs to mature for five days before use
    .
    It is too early to report results of the probiotic but early reaction seems favorable.
    The starter costs $125, 70 pounds or 86 euros per bottle plus postage (weight 250 grams, or 8 ozs) from London or from New York which ever is closest .
    Payment through www.paypal.com account denlander@aol.com

    Derek Enlander You do not need GC maf injections with the probiotic
    It is a non-prescription so you do not have to be my patient
    It is a food supplement

    Wonderful news. I did well on the MAF314 but haven't the funds to start production myself. I'm definetly going to try the MAF878 from London.

    Shannah, probiotics stopped working for me over 10 years ago. No bad effects but suddenly probiotics (and I tried different ones) stopped having the previous good effects of improving my indigestion and flattening my stomach, MAF314 restored this for me.

    Even if the MAF878 "just" helps my stomach I'll be really happy.

    Thank you Dr Enlander!

    Thanks uk! Good to know the MAF helped with your digestion.

    It's probably the lactic acid in the probiotics that cause such an increase in pain with me. I probably also have leaky gut as everything flares badly after eating.

    I'll be interested in hearing how you find the 878 in comparison to the 314. Great experiment.

    This has probably already been answered, but would a person need or benefit from the same sort of Immune testing they receive before determing if they "qualify" for GcMaf, before taking this probiotic product MAF 878?

    I have responded poorly to probiotics in the past, all of them, including lactate free ones, they all caused such terrible bloating.

    Sorry I should do more research on this myself before posting, but I am very curious about this product especially if one can order it online because traveling to see a specialist has been impossible for me.

    Guess this mean I HAVE to sign up for Facebook lol Everything it thru Facebook.

    Also, have there been any adverse reactions to this MAF yogurt/probiotic reported? Its hard when you dont have a prescribing physician following you, local doctors will probably be like "you are taking G-MAF, WHAT??!?!? Never heard of it!!"

    Are there any patients types identified who have had negative reactions?



    Thanks!

    Description reads

    "MAF 878 probiotic starter kit, add to 3 quarts of yoghurt 1 quart kefir to make one months supply of MAF 878. Keep mixture at approx 80 degrees F for five days before use. After 10 days keep mixture in refrigerator
    contains colostrum and selected probiotic bacterial mixture"

    and is shipped in a medium flat rate box. The product/s must be a fair size.

    Dr Enlander just posted some more info on facebook about MAF 878...he said that there isnt enough colostrum in the residue to make it replicate. Also that they are experimenting making MAF 878 with goats yoghurt.

    I am trying to understand. The Yogurt I buy will be already cold from store and Kefir also. So u put them back Out at room temperature once u mix it??? Doesn't make it bad for the kefir and yogurt once they have been refrigerated??

    After 10 days keep mixture in refrigerator
    Keep mixture for 5 days before u use. After 10 days keep mixture refrigerator ( what happens in between those 5 days?) means u can drink it w/o the need to refrigerate???

    Sorry not sure if it is my bad English.
