I thought best to wait till the weekend when life is not too demanding to begin taking them with my usual full glass of water in the morning. This would give my body time to adjust when Monday morning rolls around again. What I found during that week delay was just short of amazing. A few days into no supplementation, my body began to produce slight pains. These pains were something I was unaccustomed to feeling these last few months. As the week further progressed, I felt a heavy pressure in my chest and back, intermittently, throughout the day. In fact, as the days rolled on, it became quite painful. It felt as though I was coming down with a bronchial infection. I could feel the heaviness of my own labored breathing as my body began fighting off a massive infection. This was not fibro pain, this was the feeling of coming down with something only the flu season brings.
What follows next is just short of amazing. I started the probiotic again right before the weekend ensued, and within a day began to feel symptoms subside. I immediately felt uplifted and went about the last few days of my week with little symptoms left. This may not surprise you, but there is recent research that links immune difeciency disorders to the gut. Helping my body produce a natural defence against unhealthy bacteria seems natural.
"Probiotics are similar to live microorganisms that normally live in the human digestive tract. Intestinal bacteria are important in keeping the digestive system healthy and working properly. When bacterial colonies are damaged, for example by therapy with antibiotics, the result may be diarrhea or other digestive
disorders. Eating foods rich in probiotics or taking supplements containing probiotics may help keep the gastrointestinal tract healthy and may provide protection from harmful bacteria, according to MayoClinic.com." http://www.livestrong.com/article/281399-list-of-probiotics/#ixzz2BAOWX5Ry
