Dr. Anh Nguyen explains why using probiotics as a sort of Band-Aid is not a solution. She talks about the need for the true problem to be addressed first.
In regard to addressing the "true problem" elimination diets are mentioned several times which made my blood boil because they are just too difficult to follow.
I have accepted that I need to stay away from inflammatory foods as much as I can and also I have accepted the fact that my digestive system would always need tender love and care.
I love taking probiotics and prebiotics because they completely eradicated my hormonal acne. Luckily for me, I actually love fermented foods like miso and kimchi so I get friendly bacteria in that way as well.
I give thanks to Rachael Pontillo for introducing Dr. Anh Nguyen to us and I thank Dr. Anh Nguyen for bringing across her interesting perspective on probiotics. I wish there would be part 2 to this interview because the topic is very interesting.
