Re: Acidophillus really helps
Long before I met my wife, she was laid up with stomach problems for 6 months. There was almost nothing she could eat. Her mother managed to nurse her back to health, and they think the biggest contributor to her regaining her health was yogurt with Acidophillus and "that other stuff". I forgot it's name, but they are usually listed together when yogurt has Acidophillus in it.
I've noticed that more and more yogurt has this in it. I even saw an American tv show talking about Acidophillus as being a new thing that medical field was just discovering.
On this topic, but a fair ways off track, I watched a show the other day how they create an openings in a live cattle so that they can study digestion. Kind of disturbing in a way as the researcher reaches his hand inside a live cow and pulls out some partially digested food.
I'll get to my point now. Anyhow, they can siphon out stomach juices from these cows and place the juices in cows that are sick. In a lot of cases, the sick cows get well a lot quicker than they normally will. I assume it's because of all the healthy bacteria and enzymes that came from the healthy cow. The sick cows were lacking something they needed to be healthy, and they got it from healthy cow.
Sorry if that makes no sense and is really off track.
