What brand of probiotics is everyone taking? Which ones are the best?
Good question .
Kefir. I also started takin Bone broth protein powder. Make a smoothie every morning
How does this help? With RA?
Good for joints and inflammation
Alice Ohara I will definitely look into this. I'm all new to this. 2 weeks ago officially diagnosed with RA, on this new journey to heal my body. What is the brand you use?
They have different flavors
Ok thank you
I'm taking Hyperbiotics
can you take the probiotics while taking methotrexate?
Pharmacists can look up drug interactions with homeopathic remedies.
Thanks Kristen Frost
Depends on what you gut needs. I had a test and came out good except for a couple strains I could replace.
What was the name of the test you had done? I am interested in trying this.
The test was ordered by my ND, it was a Bacteriology Culture from Doctors Data.
Simbiotica which is really great to target SIBO. I have to get it through my acupuncturist tho. Not available to purchase on your own.
Home brewed kombucha and home made sauerkraut! Plus miso in pretty much everything
Do any of the above listed products say not to take if you have an autoimmune disease?
Probiotics are safe & actually very useful with an autoimmune disease
I bought a brand that specifically said not to use if you have an autoimmune disease. I took it back to the health food store and was told all probiotics have this warning. He said stimulating the immune system could work in reverse and enhance the disease
Interesting. I'll have to check my bottle for that warning.
I've never seen that warning as it's not on mine but I had this very discussion with my Rheumy... Whether strengthening the immune system is harmful and she said that is completely untrue and a myth. That it is imperative to strengthen the immune system as it no longer works as efficiently/effectively plus most RA patients at higher risk of infection. And considering the majority of the immune system lies within the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics are very beneficial. Not to mention most RA Drs (mine included) and researchers will tell you poor gut health & diet contribute to RA & other autoimmune diseases.
That makes total sense to me. Thank you.
