Probiotics
Hi

I suffer from an irritable which seems to occur when I consume either dairy or white flour. Could taking a daily probiotic assist with alleviating the problem?

Also, can dairy or eggs upset your stomach - I seem mostly better if I avoid these??

Thanks.

Dear Lucy
Taking probiotics may be very useful. Some people are lactose intolerant and have more symptoms when using diary. See http://www.gastro.net.au/diets/irritablebowel.html
