Yep….was really really BAD for a long time. Started during a period of going meat heavy and loading up on probiotics. Able counseled me about how meat causes ammonia which seemed to make sense but, discontinuing meat didn’t rid me of the bloating/gas. In hindsight, you are correct in yogurt making it worse. That happens to me as well.
A practitioner suggested discontinuing the pro-biotics since they had seen people really do a number on themselves with them but, I’m not too sure it’s good advice (think she was concerned about SIBO). The forum experts would highly disagree with this approach. I still get some probitoics daily but, not the 50+billion I was taking back then.
This past week I got away from all yogurt and bloating got MUCH better. MUCH BETTER.
So, yes you are not alone…..think able’s post about acids in probiotics/lactose has a lot to do with what we experienced as it makes sense. We’ll see, I hope to start reintroducing yogurt again this week which should shed some light on my situation.

I was suddenly struck by excessive gas and poor digestion a couple weeks ago. It was bad, and I thought my candida was back in control. However, I’ve changed a few things around, and it’s gotten a lot better. I made all the changes at about the same time, so I can’t really tell you what had what kind of impact, but here’s what I did:
-Peppermint pills. These are supposed to help kill excessive bacteria, which I hypothesized was causing my problems (gas comes from bacteria).
-I started eating a couple of slices of jalapeno peppers before breakfast. This encourages your body to produce stomach acid and digestive enzymes. Prior to eating the jalapenos I drink 1/4 cup aloe vera gel so that the peppers don’t mess with my insides.
-HCL at the beginning of meals.
-Changed from over 100 billion count probiotics to 24 billion count probiotics per day (This just happened to coincide with my probiotic schedule, but it could have had an impact)
-I stopped eating onions.
Again, not sure what had the most effect, but you may want to consider these methods.September 18, 2012 at 6:24 pm #90191

I just wanted to chime in and mention that my naturopath feels that its due to the body not producing enough HCL (hydrochloric acid) and you can supplement this with something like zypan or betaine HCL and it can completely reduce or eliminate gas by itself.
I personally got it after eating protein only.
