Yogurt good or not for intestinal difficulties.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACountryPlace : One Thread

The allopaths I've spoken to about intestinal flu with it's accompanying symptoms recommend no milk products whatsoever. Yet I frequently hear yogurt touted for it's ability to replace friendly bacteria. Does anyone here know the truth about this? I am dealing with this right now and I really need to know.

This probably isn't an answer to your question, but... when one of my grandkids was a baby, she had coloic continually. While visiting us, I gave her some yogurt. , the colic went away immediately and never came back, as long as she ate yogurt.

It is true, but some yogurts are better than others. I'm not sure what friendly bacteria is in homemade. The best around here (New England) is Stonyfield, which has all sorts of friendly bacteria in it. Healthfood stores might carry some other similar brands.

I do know that most antibiotics will kill off all bacteria, so yoghurt taken after a round of antibiotics will re-stock the good bacteria. You need to get the "live culture" kind.

Yogurt is great! It is a milk product that is predigested by bacteria which makes it easy for the stomache and intestines to handle. I make my own acidophilus milk and yogurt. Bacterial imbalances is the underlying cause of most diseases today.
