I’ve taken probiotics in the past to help counter-act the effects of antibiotics and they’ve always helped. I get them from Trader Joes. I’m not sure if they’ll help with the flu, though. Probiotics help strengthen your immune system & can prevent the flu — i don’t know about stopping it after it starts.

As a nurse, probiotics are not for the flu. However, if you are having diarrhea, constipation, you know the wonderful wonders of the bowels, these can help with that by restoring the good bacteria flora your stomach lining needs. The only thing you can do for the flu, even though we are technically out of flu season, is rest, fluids and soft foods i.e toast, rice, bananas etc. Drink your fluids and sleep! I say again. Also try not to stress, it never helps!

I think if I’m understanding, you mean "stomach flu" or gastroenteritis… and in many cases I recommend probiotics for my patients who have depletion of their normal gut flora from diarrhea.

Regardless, Jessie is married now and hopefully feeling fit and wonderful!!!

I would suggest Activa yougurt.  Also I get Pearls probiotic pills that I take every night.  I get them at the Vitamin Shoppe.  I’m lactose intolerant and this really really helps 🙂
