I'm looking for a heavy-duty, allergen-free probiotic that I can take (and so can the boys) to help in our gut healing. We are now finally all dairy/casein free (we've been gluten free for 3 1/2 years). I have pain/discomfort in my lower-right colon area most times something is passing through, and ds#3 still gets what he calls his "stomach hurting". I would like to get something strong in us that will survive the stomach and get into the GI tract to help heal previous damage, but do not know what is out there that is GF, CF/DF, and good. Any suggestions? Thanks!

We've had success w/ custom probiotics (http://customprobiotics.com)

He sent us a sample for free to try out. My ds has been through many and reacted to them all, until the custom probiotics d-lactate kind. I'd totally recommend it. He seems to do better all over when he's taking it regularly. (He is gluten, dairy, corn, soy + free, just fyi!)

HTH!

Thank you for the link. I am going to seriously consider it ... curious question though: how long does one bottle last for you of the D-Lactate free powder? I think that would be very good for my younger two and am curious the cost long-term.

Custom Probiotics and Pharmax HLC Intensive have been the best for me. I also like Klaire for dd, haven't looked to see if they are strong enough for me. Dd hasn't been able to take the CP or Pharmax, either she reacts to something in them or they are just.too.strong. Even with enzymes, clay, mag, and lots of die-off control stuff, she still gets severely constipated from them and a bad rash.

Great information ... I will be looking into all three this weekend and talking with dh. It's interesting that some react to some but not to others; I never even considered that for probiotics.

FWIW I found Custom Probiotics to be nothing special at all and I wanted to like it b/c I spent so much $$ on it!!
