Food Intolerances : trying eliminating foods now, to find out

Haven't been here for awhile, as so busy with my older mom, and my computer messed up & lost your link, so found you again. Wondering if any of you have ever tried Bubbie's brand of sauerkraut for MC? My Chiro. who's hubby is both a Chiro. & Naturopath recommended it for me, as an xray showed dark places in my tummy. She said it's higher in probiotics than most probiotics. Am trying it now and so far has settled my stomach down. The gluten free diet is still working for me, but once in awhile, as is the nature of MC, my stomach gets weird, so think this is helping. It's a fermented cabbage, and so far I've read that it helps all kinds of stuff, including C-Diff, etc. Also, do any of you recommend any particular food enzymes to take? I forgot to ask her that, but read something about it on Dr. Osborne's site.

Hi Lulu,

Yes, I ate Bubbies Sauerkraut while I was recovering. It's good stuff and it's probably much safer for most of us than commercial probiotics.

The only time I've ever tried an enzyme supplement was after I had been in remission for a while, but I was still healing. I took one capsule of an expensive enzyme before I started eating breakfast one day, and it made me about as sick as I have ever been in my life. Within a couple of hours, I was vomiting. My stomach felt as if it were on fire, and it took about 4 days before I got up the nerve to try any solid food again. Needless to say, I'll never try that again. But we're all different, and some members here feel that enzymes are helpful for their digestion.

Tex

Whew. Thanks Tex. That experience certainly wasn't good that you had, huh? That's about as bad as my trying the "pest control" remedy I tried one time. I call it the pest control remedy because after that, I sure bet there were no pests or critters of any kind left in my system. Have always wondered if it wasn't the thing that caused my MC, as never was right after that. Well, I'll think more on the enzymes for awhile. I've taken them before but not since having MC.

Dear Tex or members,
I am just reading Jini Patel Thompson web site.Listen to your gut.She recommends following her approach ,oregano oils,specific probiotics etc.to heal your gut.I do not want to waste my energy ,last night I read The plant Paradox {Tex you were right ].What is your opion on her approach,I am always nervous to TEST things out on my stomach{especially because I am doing nicely now].
I believe the best journey to healing is just following the advice of the members on this board.

Yes, fermented foods are more safe. I tried some probiotic pills 10 days ago, and the D hit me big time! Only today things seem to start normalizing. The trips to the bathroom were up to 14 times a day. I have been quite well for 1,5 years without D, but unfortunately I had a little hint of "hybris" and wanted to try probiotica.

I read on the label which says: Lactobacillus GG 10 billion CFUs and Inulin (Chicory root extract) 200 mg.

Unlike me, I googled lactobacillus gg too late, and hopefully I will get better in the coming days

Hi Erica,

If you are doing fine, why rock the boat by trying something new? This disease is not easy to control so we should always think twice (or three times) before trying some stranger's recommendations. Fermented foods are fine (if you don't have histamine problems), but I personally feel that probiotics are a waste of money and a good way to suffer a relapse for some of us.

Tex
