Probiotics are an essential part of the GAPS protocol and can be found naturally in fermented foods or commercially in supplemental form.  Dr. Campbell-McBride recommends consuming both forms to get the most beneficial bacteria as possible to populate the GI tract and balance the bacterial ecosystem.  Please refer to Dr. Campbell-McBride's book Gut and Psychology Syndrome for an extensive discussion on probiotics and her specific recommendations.

Tips


For those on the GAPS diet, it is recommended to build your dose of probiotic slowly.  Start with a very small amout (example 1/4 capsule or less for 3-5 days) and see how your body responds, gradually increasing.  Dr. Campbell-McBride recommends guidelines for therapeutic levels of a commercial probiotic in her book.  These guidelines will vary individually for each patient depending on health concerns.


Observe for "die-off" reactions when introducing probiotics.  These symptoms may include, but are not limited to, fatigue, nausea, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, low grade fever, headache, and flu like symptoms.  If there are none, the patient may increase the dose gradually.  If there is a reaction, the patient should settle on the current dose until symptoms subside or move back to the previous dose.  Some patients may need to temporarily stop the probiotic until symptoms subside if experiencing extreme die-off.


It may take patients a few weeks to a few months to reach their individual therapeutic dose.  It is important to remember the patient is also receiving probiotics from fermented foods.  Although you can not "overdose" on probiotics, it is important to listen to your body and adjust your commercial probiotic and fermented foods accordingly to control die-off.


Once the patient has reached the therapeutic dose level it should be maintained for approximately six months on average.  It takes at least this length of time to remove the pathogenic flora and start re-establishing normal gut flora.  Adhering to the diet is absolutely essential in this period.


Bio-Kult capsules can be opened up and sprinkled on food or drink.  It is important to remember to make sure the temperature of the food/drink is not too hot, as this could destroy the bacteria.
