So, I have always said that in terms of lactose that I can handle a little goat milk every once in awhile, but then I have been feeling crummy the past few nights. I looked at the ingredients on the goat yogurt.
Grade A Pasteurized whole goat milk, tapioca starch, pectin and live, active yogurt cultures: S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus & Bifidus.
I didn’t realize tapioca starch was in there, and I remember one time I had that starch I def. reacted to it! Not on strict diet and starch!!
Able, will that ruin my progress? I didn’t make a connection until tonight. Maybe if I really want something creamy, I should try greek yogurt again, which has nothing, but cultures and nonfat milk.
CULTURED PASTEURIZED ORGANIC NONFAT MILK.
CULTURES: S. THERMOPHILUS, L. BULGARICUS, L. ACIDOPHILUS, BIFIDUS, AND L. CASEI.
grrr, this makes me really mad-has anybody made their own non-dairy homemade yogurt before because all the non-dairy yogurts out their are full of sugar, mold, cramp, or I guess I could try making homemade goat yogurt.May 15, 2013 at 1:05 am #104522

I doubt seriously that this accident will ruin all of your progress. It’s possible that it may set you back, but there’s no way of knowing yet. I don’t know where you are with the treatment, but if you’re taking antifungals or probiotics, you might think about upping the amount of one or the other or even both for a few weeks just to be safe.
The safest form of yogurt of course is to make your own, and some stores such as Amazon carry yogurt makers which makes it a lot easier. If you have to purchase commercial yogurt, I would stay with the unsweetened plain, organic Greek yogurt; but even this can cause problems in some people so start slowly with only a few bites.

Thanks Able, I just wondered. Right now on my treatment, it comes and goes. I have good and bad days. Currently, my only anti-fungal I am taking is sf722; I am up to 4 a day right now. Probiotics are between 15-30 billion a day right now; probably should up the probiotics.
I have been trying to monitor my reactions real closely lately, and sort of slowed down a bit on things because since my issues are so complex, I felt I needed a little more guidance. This site is wonderful on having me learn all this useful information, recipes, etc., but I still need more help. Raster gave me his naturopath’s info, and I have a phone consult this Thursday. I am going to see what he has to say, and if it would be useful for me. It just gets frustrating because I can feel pretty good one day, and not so hot the next day. My brain fog hasn’t been bad at all, it is just still the urinary issues, crazy sleeping (I get up too early! I hate waking up at 4 in the morning.), and bloating at night still.
My mind has been at ease though lately through detoxing through tanning and trying to support my adrenals with vitamin c, ashwangda, etc. Sometimes I wonder if I developed sibo, too with my past use of lots of laxatives before colon taken out, ppi’s, and antibiotic use over the years as I read mooch’s posts. I have read sibo is very hard to get over. Do you have any more information about sibo?
Maybe next week when I get some more money I’ll invest in a yogurt maker because I am tired of worrying. I tried a crockpot homemade recipe once, and it didn’t turn out too well. Time to get it right!May 15, 2013 at 1:40 am #104524

K, since your die-off seems to be rather mild, I think you need to raise the amount of probiotics at this time. Start taking no less than 30 billion a day; after five days of 30 billion raise the amount by 15 billion if that’s the amount in one capsule.
What have you taken for your urinary issues?
Please continue to post results.

okay, I just backed down a bit for awhile to even monitor my reactions on supplements because I think I was trying to do too much. Plus, I was starting to wear myself out with my crafts. So, I have been feeling better by just trying to watch my diet, slow myself down a bit, and monitor reactions. I love eating buckwheat bread right now and my crackers. Plus, I feel good on oat and rice bran, and millet flour.
I’ll try to increase probiotics again. Yes, 15 billion in one capsule. I’ll start taking 2 of them again, and increase again after 5 days. I did just take my probiotic a little while ago, and feel a tad better; any cause for real stinky farts sometimes; sorry. Other things I am taking right now are trying goat milk colostrum, biotin, milk thistle, vitamin c, natural magnesium at night, l-glutamine as needed and molybednum as needed, and then sf722 (trying to get to the 6 a day), cortisol manager (this has ashwangda in it), relora, hcl, and yes, I know you don’t recommended it (I did see mooch’s post), an enzyme as needed (mainly as lots of herbs, slippery elm, dgl, marshmallow root, and then only a couple small amount of enzymes).
I don’t know what to take for my urinary issue.
Then, like I said, I’ll see how the naturopath consult goes and post how that goes afterwards.May 15, 2013 at 2:43 am #104526

Yes, I also wanna learn how to make homemade yogurt, I bloat with greek yogurt but I bloat with everything. I stopped all enzymes and I m taking hcl and bitters again. I m gonna push through this route. I m seeing a naturapath on thursday about the sibo. I know there are a few antibiotics that stay in the gut for sibo but I don’t want that route yet. I know peppermint gels is supposed to be good for sibo and garlic. I ll post some tips about sibo after I talk to naturapath about sibo, its a university of naturpath and holistic medicine and I hear its great. Yeast is a pain in the ass but having sibo and yeast is even worse. I feel my yeast numbers are getting lower thought but its my digestion that seems to just be completely messed up.May 15, 2013 at 10:12 am #104550
Mooch, yes, kudos to the homemade yogurt. I was looking up some yogurt makers last night on amazon, and I thought one seemed like a pretty good deal. I just remembered that I got some money the other day from some wine glasses I made from people, so I might invest. Actually, I want to make a non-dairy yogurt, or I can try the homemade goat yogurt. I just don’t trust a lot of things anymore.
I feel I am getting a little better, and my stomach doesn’t do too bad. I just get gas and bloating in the intestines still, but if I didn’t follow an anti-inflammatory diet, then I known I would be halting the progress.
I have tried peppermint off and on, and if I feel pressure, it does help, but other times, not quite sure about that.
Yes, let me know what the doc says about sibo, and I am hoping for a good consult as well. Also, maybe I should try some more garlic?May 15, 2013 at 12:53 pm #104556

You dont need a yoghurt maker. When I went to buy one once the shop assistant was Iranian and was amazed at the idea. She told me how to make yoghurt: heat up milk to just under boiling;let it cool to tepid ;take a spoonful of the milk and mix with a spoonful of live yoghurt (how much you put in varies depending on how much milk you have and how you want the yog to come out);mix back into the tepid milk and stir well; put the lot in a AIRTIGHT container and leave in a warm place. 12 to 24 hrs later you have gorgeous yoghurt. If you live in a cold place you can insulate your container (wrap it up in a blanket) I make my yoghurt in a crockpot,once at the right temp, turn it off, wrap it up(unplugged) and leave overnight.
The yoghurt will start tohave a liquidy bit after a while; you can just stir it back in or strain through muslin for a few hours to make greek yoghurt, which is thicker and tastes sweeter.May 15, 2013 at 3:11 pm #104559
