VSL#3 Alternative

My doctor did say a probiotic yogurt such as Dannon™'s Activia™ would do the trick. More cost-effective, but not SCD-compliant. Since he hasn't given a definitive diet order, I might just check it out.


Now that I have awakened from my post-procedure nap, I will be researching these terms:

- Colitis
- Brunner gland hyperplasia
- C.Difficile toxin positive

The blood results should arrive in about a week, enabling my doctor to deliver a comprehensive analysis. I'll find out whether this condition is caused by food, or just irritated by it. In the meantime, Flagyl 4x/day and VSL#3® 1x/day for a week, then 2x/week thereafter.
