Ruth, the Procratin doesn't probably contain any living cells, but definitely can help you with insufficient pancreas. I've tried 5 Strain Dophilus from Swiss Herbal Remedies recently, and now I'm on Lepicol - funny stuff, looks more like a hay, but there is a lot of fiber in it which helps you to get some regularity into your digestion. I've just started, but it seems to work well.

Yes, my improvement lasted about a week after my course was finished, and then it got even worse than before. It seems the bad bacteria can repopulate the place much faster than the good ones.
I'm just trying a few different probiotics to see which one works better for me. Up to now, they seem to calm down my irritated intestines.

Thank you for sharing your experience.

Tiffany,

thanks for the great post. Have you got any clue whether it's possible to get casein-free milk? This would be a nice stuff - no allergy or intolerance possible, high in calcium, and because of low protein content, no buffering involved.
Perhaps a good issue for the diary industry to work out.

In Topic: Gastroenteritis, Eosinophilic

I don't know much about my eosinophil count, but I suppose having them increased is quite a standard in celiac. But, what's more interesting, cetirizini dihydrochloridum allergy pills label says that this stuff can hold the eosinophils back from moving. I took one pill 2 months ago for my pollinosis, and I noticed improvement in my gastro symptoms as well. The improvement was delayed 1-2 days, so I couldn't see the clear connection. Anyway, it could be worth further investigating.

It convinced her to run a series of tests for helicobacter infection, which finally turned out negative. But I have no idea what these tests can tell about other bugs. So I agree with you, and I'll keep nagging :rolleyes:
