In reply to PROBIOTICS FOR BIPOLAR? - SLS, AND ALL READ THIS!!, posted by garylee on July 4, 2008, at 20:04:18

My integrative MD has had several patients improve significantly in psychiatric symptoms, accidentally, with either antibiotics or probiotics. Either way, there is a clear hint that somehow the immune system is tied into what happens in the brain and emotions. I have read in various places on the web how the immune system is tied in with psychiatry, and how probiotics directly impact the immune system. Antibiotics also. Depends on what the underlying immune malfunction is, or what the hidden microscopic invader is. Certain probiotics are good at displacing and reducing bad bugs, such as candida. Candida overgrowth can sure make one lethargic and depressed. And I am sure there are other bad bugs knocked down by heavy doses of probiotics.

10 billion in a dose, by the way, is rather small. You can buy over the counter ones with 50 billion that have like 14 different strains in them. A book to treat Amalgam Illness says much higher doses are needed than what is on the bottle. More importantly, as maybe was accidentally discovered when this thread was started, is the particular strain of probiotic.

Could also maybe be just the huge amount of protein intake from all that yogurt, but I doubt it. The immune system makes more sense to me. Though a scientific body of evidence is in its infancy, there is a good deal already accumulated. I know of three MD sponsored protocols that address psychiatry through the immune system. One is probiotic, the other two are antibiotic.

I could not handle the side effects of the antibiotic Doxycyline. It was killing me with weight loss and I had no weight to lose. But, I had the most remarkable complete short lived remission on it, after two weeks of feeling more depressed on it. That stuff did something very good to my immune system and my psychiatric standing, after a very rough go of killing bunchs of critters. That doesn't feel good. Once they are under control and the immune system gets back into swing, yeah.

Immune system, chronic hidden infections, and psychiatry? Definitely, as far as I am concerned. Do probiotics fit into that? Definitely, as far as I am concerned. Though I must admit 50 billion a day for a month or so didn't do anything for me except eliminate gas. Maybe I need to try that yogurt! :-)
