So I'm still having problems with not being quite regular. I went from constant diarrhea and cramps to having mostly normal bowel movements with occasional diarrhea and cramps, occasional completely normal bowel movements after cutting out gluten and dairy. I was wondering about taking a probiotic, but REALLY don't want to eat yogurt (the one time I accidentally had a small amount of parmesan cheese in a salad, the effect was extremely unpleasant!! ugh.) I found these probiotic "pearls", basically a probiotic pill to take that has trace amounts of milk, according to the package. I took one, and had diarrhea and mood swings that day all day. However, saying that, the day I took them turned out to be a couple days before (guys may want to skip this part of the sentence) my period began, which can cause the exact same symptoms. I have no idea if I should be taking it or not! Any suggestions, or does anyone know of a gluten-free probiotic that won't eat a hole in my wallet? lol

I have been taking a probiotic for a year now with good results. It is called Kyo-Dophilus. I can find it right in the health food section of my local market. I think it runs about $23.00 dollars a bottle for 45 pills but you could take one or 2 a day. It is free of preservatives, sugar, sodium, dairy, yeast, gluten and artificial flavors and colors.

You can get probiotics that are not based on dairy. Most stores have them these days, though you might have to go to a "health food store".

I have had the same problems as you Stormy, so here's what I tried. Nutrition Now has a pro biotic called PB8 that is Dairy free, as well as Gluten,Egg,Peanut,Soy & Salt free. A small Bottle(60 caps) runs about 12.00. I got mine at Vitamin World, but most Health Stores carry it. It worked okay for me, but not as well as I had hoped so after some research I decided to try incorporating Flax seed into my diet. It has worked extremely well for me...regular everyday like clockwork...it has literally changed my life!!!

It's important to get whole flax seed and grind it as needed to get all the fiber & nutritional value. Unground Flax will just go right through your system(kinda like corn). Also, it's best not to cook it as well for the same reason. I just use my coffee grinder every morning...put 1 tablespoon in my smoothie and save another tablespoon for later, sprinkled on my salad, mixed in my prepared quinoa or anything else you eat regularly.

It's cheap(My Market in Fla. sells a container of seeds that last me a month for 1.49). Store it in a dark spot (I refrigerate mine) and you'll be good!

Remember to drink plenty of water during the day and I think you'll be amazed at the results within a few days.
