Is it normal to have bacteria living in your stomach? I thought they were supposed to reside in the colon primarily. I'm not taking the probiotic and potato starch at the same time, so it's not that.


Maybe SIBO? I'm doing research at the moment as to why fibre and resistant starch give be severe explosive diarrhoea and that's what I'm thinking. I also get burping too. Not sure how to treat it though.

My cat gets IBD too, and allergies, but only if I feed her chicken. I want to try Florentero. My kitties need something too.

Dr. Liu has a protocol for tackling SIBO. I think her blog is Animal Pharma.

Evidently there are different strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium and some set up robust colonies that sustain themselves whereas other strains aren't as robust and die off faster than they can reproduce, so the colony will die off if you don't constantly add more. These are cheaper per pill and of course the pharmaceutical companies want you as a customer for life, not for a week or 10 days. Both have similar numbers of bacteria per pill/tablet, but the strains (sub species level, not indicated on the labels) are different.

That's interesting, I didn't know there were probiotics specifically for dogs. I always I give Madeleine the ones made for humans. It also never occurred to me that Italy was making probiotics. If you travel a lot you might be able to collect hundreds of strains. Just when I thought there wasn't another single thing I want to buy ....

Also, most EU countries have public health systems, so they promote short-term remedies.

I rarely eat real sugar anymore but I wonder if they feed on erythritol or xylitol.

I'll have to look into that. Thanks.
