I assume yes but would like to confirm that probiotics can be a beneficial treatment for Crohn’s as well as UC? Asking as a Crohn’s patient.

I have been to a lot of Doctors in my 58 years of life and most of them didn't have a clue about nutrition and gut health, to many wanted to just give me a pill which just treated the symptoms not the cause . People need to be their own doctor sometimes and find natural remedies because big Pharma loses money if people get better. Educate yourself people!

Hi Mike!
My doctor prescribed me with antibiotics and medicinal cream to help with my acne (it’s not new but more old acne but it’s cystic I think.) Would this be healthy to do so?

Great video.
I put a lot of effort into my gut health.
I'm a professional musician, and I also work in a primary school. I also have 2 small kids... So I'm surrounded by potential bugs.
I take (good quality) Probiotics daily (have done for 2 years now) - I've genuinely found it to be exceedingly effective.
I do also drink raw Apple cider vinegar, matcha teas, turmeric, bromelain, ginger - which In imagine also helps.
I've found probiotics prevent me from getting bacterial infections (tonsilitis etc) and I've not been physically sick due to exposure to a sickness bug in over 2 years now. (Vs before when I would get sickness bugs)
Perhaps this is also linked to eating a plant-based diet; plenty of greens and fruits/veg?
Just as an aside... I've seen some research that connects gut health to neurological illnesses such as Alzheimer's

I had a problem with my gut, couldn't go to the toilet until I'd get diarrhea like all the time. I started taking Swanson's 16 strain probiotic with FOS and I feel like I am cured. I can easily go to the bathroom, no more diarrhea. But I guess I got lucky?

My microbiologist friend told me probiotics supplement is all a scam. Those micro organisms cannot survive in capsules and pills. The only way to ingest live organisms is to eat yoghurt and kimchi. I'm not sure whom to listen to... I'm currently doing both, taking capsules I bought on Amazon and eating a lot of yoghurt and I feel better. But I don't know exactly which one is actually doing the job lol.

Three times in my life I've had an illness that appeared to completely kill off my flora. I immediately began having trouble digesting food and one case experience strong constipation. The last case was after food poisoning from an egg that got into the colon.
In each case the symptoms continued until I took probiotics. The first time it was almost 7 weeks before I stumbled on them. The last two times it was about a week.
I have also seen research that probiotics can influence whether you are diabetic or not and the number of calories you extract from food and whether you can suggest certain foods at all.
I know of a person who was unable to digest milk her entire life until she met a new boyfriend at 39 and all of a sudden she could the jest milk without problems. The only explanation was a transfer of his culture to her.
In each case I only took two doses and that was sufficient. I've never taken daily doses on a regular basis.

Is there any research re: probiotics and leveling out blood sugar issues? I struggled for about 7 years with my blood sugar dropping quickly after eating - it was technically within the "normal" range, but I would get the shakes/feel faint/get anxious as soon as my blood sugar dropped below 85. Since my blood sugar would drop below 90 within 3 hours after eating, it meant that every day was challenging. Very aggravating. Lots of whole grains and protein would help, but I would constantly have to be on watch, because I could go from feeling fine to feeling really shaky within 15 minutes. Last year, I started drinking a lot of kefir - about 2 cups per day - purely because I like it and it is rich in protein. To my surprise, after about 3 months of this, I found I was no longer getting hungry between meals and yet wasn't getting shaky. I was finally able to take in fewer calories without "crashing" (since I need to lose weight and could never cut calories without feeling faint, this was a huge benefit). I put it to the test at about four months and tried a 24-hours fast, checking my blood sugar levels every two hours - I remained completely steady! Totally wonderful! Since then, I have had zero problems with blood sugar issues except for once or twice when I'd gone a week or two without drinking kefir. If there is research to back this up, it might be something people could benefit from hearing. I have concluded that I must had deficiencies in my microbiome that the probiotics have resolved, manifesting in steadier blood sugar levels and better absorption of food so that I require fewer calories overall to feel more satisfied and healthier. Thank you!

I should have known this during my teenage years. I'm 22 now and diagnosed with ADHD. I had a terrible ability to focus and my skin condition was really bad. I went through my entire teenage life with depression and anxiety. My diet was a mess which could explain why I was a mess. I will start eating more healthy and try to come up with a plan that works for me.

I guess all the Asians are gut unhealthy because of the white rice. If you have skin problems of course diet is number one but right probiotics supplements will help a lot. And talking to a doctor about supplements is not a good idea because they don’t have any idea about nutrition and supplements

Look into the Seed Synbiotic. It’s amazing. I’ve been taking it for 2 days so far and it’s already made all the difference in my regularity. It’s the only pro/prebiotic that’s clinically proven in like 24 countries! It has a double capsule technology that keeps the probiotics safe until they reach your intestines. And they’re all human centric strains. They also include a probiotic that produces folate.
Although I have always had issues with my regularity and have had bad digestion all my life. I’ve also had depression off and on for as long as I can remember. I can’t comment on the improvement of my depression yet, because it would probably be more of a placebo effect. But again, I’ve never been this regular. Seed is a little expensive but has a full month supply, is clinically proven, and the brand focuses on research and sustainability.

Fantastic book, I read it 3 times. I was able to meet him and see him speak at a Autism Biological Orlando, FL conference back in 2000.

A doctor at a hospital told us to give my daughter a probiotic gummy every day because she had to go on a second round of antibiotics (she had a sinus infection and a couple weeks later she went to the hospital for pneumonia). Is that even normal?
