Considering how many of us have trouble with anxiety and depression, and how many of us need probiotics, I thought this was interesting: http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/11/18/244526773/gut-bacteria-might-guide-the-workings-of-our-minds

I know full well the gut-brain connection (the production of seratonin and other neurotransmitters in the gut were surely affected when I was very ill before diagnsosis ) and so, I remain a steadfast believer in the healing powers of probiotics and their beneficial use for us celiacs with gut damage.

I had virtually no "good guy" beneficial bacteria upon diagnosis and my GI doc and I agreed that I should supplement for life.

If you guys have the big D--you need lactobacillis GG at first (as found in  DF Culturelle) and if you have the big C, you need a broad spectrum proB like those in Custom probtiotics or Jarrodophilis AF.

 

I know some of you regard me as the "probiotics pusher"....and I can live with that!  :D

I mean it....they turned my gut around and made my entire GI tract

stop burning, churning and behaving like an angry devil. I could not even drink water without burning pain

and within a month, I could swallow again. I take them every day. No bowel issues whatsoever after a lifetime of living in the loo.

 

And no anxiety/ depression either. (granted being off gluten poison is also part of the solution!)

 

I would also like to add this link for further reading

If  you are  the probiotic  pusher  than I must  be  the  second  leader!  But I also push digestive  enzymes......

Ok oh wise probiotic pusher and second leader.....is there somewhere on the interwebz that teaches me about probiotics? I know next to nothing about them and while I'm certain they would help my entire family....I have no idea where to find decent ones or what makes them decent or really anything!

 

Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks!

I have no affiliation with this company whatsoever, I promise, but I have had great success with

Custom probiotics multi-strain. 

http://www.customprobiotics.com/

 

The article link I posted earlier in the thread explains why celiac guts need them.

The website for Custom ProBs also has several articles you can read.

 

I see they are now available for sale on Ama zon as well.

A message  from the  second leader!!!!!!!!!!!!  Again, Irishheart  gave  you one.. Here are  a few  I  like & use. probiotics (different brands) give  people  different  results so  we  who use  them  have  our  favorites... here  are  mine>>>>> Dr. Ohirra's  twelve  point  professional  formula,  Align, Pearls  by  enzymatic therapy...these  I use  most  often  but   do  use others  as  well...many are  easy fines  at  Walmart...Probiotics  are the good  guys   that  fight  the  bad  guys  in your  gut.. We all need  them...Think of them  as the invaders  / solder's  to help you maintain  a good healthy  intestinal tract...

I  have  found  that  digestive enzymes  are  also very  helpful. What they  do  is  help  the  system digest  carbs, proteins,  &  so on. they are  taken  before  meals.....
