I had a sinus infection that they couldn’t take care of about a year ago, and as a result, took about 6 courses of different antibiotics over a three month period. As most of you are probably aware, that will really mess up your “gut”. So I started taking a product called “Align”, which is supposed to be an “upper-end” probiotic. Have stayed on it ever since.

It will be interesting to follow the reports about this study…I kind of wonder if a particular type of PB will prove to be most effective.

On a side note…I also have had issues with Diverticulitis in the past. John mentioned oatmeal and fiber…there’s almost NO fiber in oatmeal; in fact, it’s one of the worst things you can eat if you have diverticulitis. Learned that diverticulitis is a “man-made” illness…there are NO recorded incidences of it prior to the invention of the steel rolling mill. Current food processing techniques for flour, etc., all use a rolling mill to “glomerate” fibers until they are unusable by the body. Whole grains are the only way to go!
