Probiotics and the Standard American Diet

Elaine writes:
You asked, Did I read something on list about if you're not 100% on the diet not to use probotics??

From Elaine,
Yes, you did and I meant it to apply to people with IBD. Of course, again, I am alone in the field of alternative and mainstream medicine who says this. But my guide is the fact that the "soil of the body" determines the type of bacteria that survive in the gut. And if one is on SAD, all that starch and sugar down there is bound to cause mutations in the probiotic which are all anerobic bacteria which live on carbohydrate.

Originally from the Long Island listserve.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
