    First of all,
    thanks for these great videos that you post.

    You mention probiotics. As I understand, there are many differing types. Could you recommend any?

    I also wish to ask with regards to lactose intolerance. Does gluten intolerance and/or celiac go hand in hand with lactose intolerance? If those if one is the latter, how probable is it that they are also gluten sensitive if not outright celiacs?

    Many thanks,

    Hello Leonardo,

    The best probiotics are a human strain, about 20 billion organisms per capsule and a blend of different organisms such as Lactobacillus and Bifidus.

    We sometimes recommend very specific strains but that is as a result of laboratory testing revealing specific imbalances or the presence of inhospitable organisms.

    Lactose intolerance is commonly seen with gluten intolerance but I don’t really recommend dairy products (besides organic butter – the protein solids are not present in butter) for anyone. Much like gluten is something we, as humans, cannot effectively digest, cow’s milk is not designed for our bodies either.

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. We do have a Destination Clinic that sees patients from across the country as well as internationally.

    To your good health,
    Dr Vikki
