Eating this one thing:
can result in complete resolution of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.
This is type of overwhelmingly complete response to a treatment is unheard of, and quite honestly, I’m surprised it’s something that the medical community will publish…
… since there is absolutely no Rx medication or over-the-counter pharmacy remedy that comes anywhere close to providing the 100% complete remission results seen with homemade yogurt.
Not only did eating homemade yogurt daily make a full remission possible — it actually made a full remission PROBABLE — as over 89% of IBS patients (some who had been suffering without improvement despite medical treatment for IBS for over a decade!) experienced COMPLETE RESOLUTION of their symptoms within just 6 months.
The study (reported at The World Congress of Gastroenterology: Abstract P1152, on October 16, 2017):
- 189 patients with irritable bowel syndrome were enrolled
- Patients had been suffering with IBS for up to 10 years or more
- Patients consumed 2 – 3 cups of yogurt daily
- They were clinically evaluated every 2 months for a 6 month period of time
- 169 out of 189 patients in the study (89.4%) had full remission within 6 months
The Bottom Line:
The vast majority of patients who consumed homemade yogurt daily
became ***completely free of IBS*** within 6 months.
The authors of this study offer this simple, cheap, and mind-blowingly effective recipe for curing your gastrointestinal woes with easy to make, inexpensive homemade yogurt:
- First, boil a gallon of milk for 5 minutes and let it cool to lukewarm.
- Next, mix in 1 cup of plain yogurt (use your favorite organic plain yogurt) as a source of Lactobacilli.
- Place in an oven with the light on overnight (do not turn the oven on)
- Refrigerate the next morning.
- This results in enough yogurt to last you all week!
- Save 1 cup from each batch to use as a starter for the next batch next week.
- Each day, mix fruit and/or honey into the yogurt to sweeten it as you eat it, or put yogurt generously into a morning smoothie!
To me, this is basically the medical community proving that IBS is 100% related to gut flora. So all of their IBS medications (like anti-diarrheals, bile acid binding agents, anti-spasmodics, muscle relaxants, laxatives, anti-depressants and more) all completely miss the mark… and come with side effects as scary as ischemic bowel disease.
All of this, back to back with the study I told you about last year that proved that yogurt lowered body fat and increased bone density!! Presented at the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research’s Annual Meeting (September 18, 2016) researchers showed that all it takes is consuming yogurt to positively impact bone density and decrease body mass index.
Patients consuming yogurt had 6.5% leaner bodies, 4.4% greater bone density and about at 10% less fracture rate over time.
And this boost helped protect against bone loss over time.
At the three year bone mineral density follow up, the patients who never consumed yogurt had an average bone mineral density loss of 0.1% each year, whereas the patients who consumed yogurt increased their bone strength each year by up to 0.6%.
So just yogurt… rich with probiotics… helps to increase bone strength, protect bones over time, keep body fat lower and lower BMI measurements totally independently of any other factor that could account for these differences, such as exercise or total calcium intake.
This study comes on another study which revealed that consuming dairy actually helps decrease diabetes risk!
And, as I blogged about over four years ago, probiotics have positive mind and mood enhancing effects as well (which is a big deal since about one in every ten Americans now takes an antidepressant, and antidepressants are the third most prescribed form of medication.)
The natural flora of the gut is diminished in depression, and restoring the natural vitality and variety of healthy organisms in the digestive tract is a very powerful way to improve outcome in depression (and other mood disorders, such as anxiety.)
Improved mood was shown in several different clinical studies:
- one study showed decreased depression when participants received probiotic supplements for 30 days
- another study reported clinically significant improvement in mood when participants ate probiotic-containing yogurt for 3 weeks.
- and yet another study showed that participants with chronic fatigue syndrome who consumed probiotics three times a day reported significantly less anxiety compared to those who did not.
Probiotics lift your mood, help digestion, alleviate constipation, boost your immune system, control yeast and fungal overgrowth, promote healthy skin, and even lower blood pressure!
Yep, you read that right, probiotics (like those found in yogurt) lowered blood pressure by an average of 5.8 mmHg systolic pressure.
This is a very clinically significant improvement in blood pressure, as previous studies have shown that changes as small as a 3.3 mmHg reduction in systolic blood pressure is enough to create a 22% decreased risk of cardiovascular mortality, heart attack and stroke
So these results have huge implications on a massive scale, decreasing health care costs and burden and imparting important widespread public health benefits.
All from simply consuming probiotic foods… something you can do right now to support the health of your body from the inside out, head to toe.
No time for making homemade yogurt?
At least give your gut, mind and body the support of a high quality probiotic.
