CFS, Leaky Gut, Mutaflor

I have made some progress in health since I was last on CPN help and wanted to share info with this community. Last summer I tried stopping antibiotics after 2 and a bit years on the protocol. First attempt was disastrous and I felt lousy, very tired, brain fog, and went back on after a week or two.

J R, although I have not needed to take antibiotics for many years, I still take some probiotics every day, or nearly every day: I think they are essential to every day living. Rather than any expensive brands though I stick with live yogurt ad kefir, then some saccharomyces boulardii capsules.

 

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Hi Sarah, sorry for the slow reply... I did want to emphasize that for me this probiotic was a game changer. It has enabled me to survive as a consultant and I’m now working 50 hours a week (hence not often showing my face here) before I started on it that simply wouldn’t have been possible. After taking antibiotics (which I am now off completely, only do acitivated charcoal and supplements incl. NAC), starting this made a huge difference. I think for ME/CFS folks it’s definitely worth trying, not sure if it will help MS folks but I’d imagine if anyone is constipated it would be helpful, at least with that.

Hi to all at CPN help! I’m very grateful for all the help I received here - you were a big part of bringing me back to reasonable health, which I never knew before as a adult even though I am now in my 40s!

JR, that is very good news for you and maybe people should try it. However, constipation is not something that has ever affected me: too much roughage in my diet I guess!
