Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

Probiotic, soil based organisms and gut microbes...?

    My doc is putting me on a protocol that will "reset" my small intestine , ie: get rid of the bad bacteria and then she wants me to take high-potency probiotics.
    The protocol I will be on consists of:
    ADP (emulsified oil of oregano)
    With Sac B
    With something else that disrupts the biofilm of bad bacteria (Bromelaine CLA)
    Then, the probiotic assault.

    I've been pondering pill probiotics and looking at high potency ones like Garden of Life. They do a 100 billion, 29 strand one that looks very potent. But looking at it, I think its just grown from Kefir!! Why not get a cup of live Kefir and get a Trillion cheaply rather than pay a load of money and get 100 Billion!
    I have access to some raw milk and am making yogurt that has 750 Billion per cup serving. And these are alive and kicking bacteria.

    Has anyone got a good recommendation of a probiotic they use thats potent?

    Next I am pondering Soil Based Organisms. And reading that these don't actually populate the gut but simply do their job and pass through.
    If you were repopulating the gut, how would you get the bacteria strands in there that would populate and do the best job possible?

    I think people explained on your other thread why yogurt and kefir are not good because it only has one strain. If you're going to do this, why not do it with something that is really going to do the job?

    It looks like it sounds financial, and I totally get that, but it may not pay off in the end trying to make your own to save money.

    Yogurt and Kefir have only one strain ??! Kefir has about 30 different strains. Yogurt (from raw milk as I'm making it) might have about 8.
    I am just wondering if anyone has has success with Soil Organisms and having them populate rather than just pass straight through; and am wondering if there are any comments on my SIBO protocol.

    You might want to make a thread on this in the forum called "The Gut: De MeirLeir & Maes; H2S; Leaky Gut" That forum has a lot of visitors who post about probiotics.

    To clarify, yogurt only contains strains of lactobacillus. So there is more than one strain but they're all from the same family, which all tend to have similar effects in the gut. You could do both: yogurt for your lactobacilli and then get a high bifido or soil based organisms or other types to get a balance.

    I'd like to hear any answers as to which strains will colonize the gut though and not just pass through. I've wondered about that.

    That's what I meant and what was said in your other thread.

    OK, sorry for the confusion, just that you said Kefir too, which has multiple strains.
