Navigating the World of Probiotics: When and Why to Consider Them For Gut Health and Recovery

Research has now confirmed probiotics can play a role in helping recovery from gut and non-gut related health conditions. But, how do you determine if they’re necessary for you? The tell-tale sign is persistent symptoms despite a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Probiotics are particularly beneficial if you’re experiencing:

 Non-specific health symptoms like brain fog, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, and mood or sleep disturbances.
 No improvement in health despite a better diet, sleep, and exercise regime.
 Gut imbalances due to conditions like leaky gut syndrome or SIBO.
 Post-antibiotic recovery, especially if experiencing diarrhoea.

Remember, probiotics are more than a wellness trend; they play a crucial role in supporting recovery from such health issues.

Probiotic Source

Quality and variety are key when selecting probiotics. Avoid generic, low-quality products. Instead, opt for trusted sources, preferably recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Combining different probiotic types often yields better results, and generally more strains equate to broader benefits.

Triple Probiotic therapy - A simple effective protocol

Taking probiotics doesn’t need to be complicated! Yes, there are a lot of different probiotic strains, but all you really need to know are the three main probiotic categories. Nearly every probiotic product can be classified into one of these categories.

1. Lactobacillus & bifidobacterium species predominated blends
2. Saccharomyces Boulardii (a healthy fungus)
3. Soil-Based Probiotics 

One of the main effects of probiotics is that they can help to balance the bacteria in the gut (our microbiome). Many people don’t achieve this balance using just one type of probiotic or with just probiotic food alone. This may be why probiotics have not worked for you in the past. In my clinic, I usually see the best results when combining all 3 types of probiotics, although some sensitive people may find they can only tolerate one probiotic type (in which case, they should not give up if they react to one type, but simply try the other types as they may find they do not react to them).

After a week or two on these 3 types of probiotics, you should start to see an improvement in your symptoms but this improvement can be gradual and may continue over a 2 or 3 month period.

How long should I take them for?

Continue taking the probiotics for as long as you continue to improve. If you notice no improvement after a month, then they are likely not helping. If they make you feel worse, reduce your dose or try just one of the types of probiotic.

If you feel somewhat better, but not completely, you can then look at other interventions or work with a practitioner on your health issues.

Probiotics can play a significant role in gut health and overall well-being. However, their effectiveness can vary based on individual needs and conditions. Consult with a healthcare provider for personalised advice and consider combining probiotic therapy with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle for the best results.
