Probiotics--what do you think?
Dr Khem Shalani is called the father of probiotics. He runs a place called Nebraska Cultures, which sells friendly bacteria that populate your intestines and combat the damage to intestinal flora and fauna from today’s chemicals, pesticides, and antibiotics.
According to the literature, these bacteria can fight constipation, gas, diarrhea, any imbalance.
Supposedly these bacteria kill off the bad stuff, such as yeast, help the body absorb calcium, and increase immunity.
Other stated benefits: Reduce cholesterol in the blood, manufacture B vits, cut skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema.
I know I was sick as two dogs Friday night, whether from not having the proper inner balance or still having a dicky gallbladder, I don’t know, but ick, ick, ick!
What do you think on this probiotic stuff? Does the body try to find a balance? Do we need to take pills to fend off …well, everything?
Go to www.nebraskacultures.com for more info.
By the way, internal balance of this stuff can be so delicate, some people with horrible intestinal problems even get a “transplant” of other’s people’s "contents" to level them off. Best not to dwell.
