Hi, I am O+.  Apparently Yogurt is a no for me.  I bought goat milk yogurt.  Turns out even that thing is a no for me!  Before I scream out of agony, does anyone have any other alternative suggestion that will allow me to ingest live active cultures / flora in the most natural form possible?  I need it because it helps my digestion.  I know there are supplements.  But I was wondering if there was a more natural way.  Can I take those live culture fluid shots gourmet food/grocery stores sell?  Any other ideas?

(p.s.Special request to Dr. D - can I bribe you to make goat milk at least a neutral for O?)

welcome!

you could find out your GT and see if you get paneer or other fermented fresh dairy

or try making your own compliant grain, seed or nut milk and add a whole polyflora capsule to a glass......voila....next day you get yogurt!

Kefir makes my probiotic world go 'round   Since you are an O, you could try water kefir to avoid dairy.  Or, as Henriette suggested, cultured veggies.  I've read that the probiotics in yogurt or capsule-form are transient and cannot actually populate the digestive tract but kefir can.  I'm not sure about cultured veggies.

Well If you eat lots of prebiotics then the probiotics are happy

You get prebiotics from things like onions, leek, asparagus and whole grain products so Choose whatever works for you

First of all, I suggest you finish up that quart of goat milk yogurt without guilt. It's yummy stuff, even if it's not a great choice for Os, and gives you some probiotics in your diet for another few days while you navigate this new way of looking at food. Maybe even buy it one more time if your homemade fermented veggies aren't ready yet. But then stop buying the goat milk yogurt.

Read this thread on fermenting your own veggies:

Prebiotics are what feed the probiotics while they are getting established.  So if you are eating foods beneficial for your type, and taking probiotics that are beneficial for your type, you should be having a good relationship down there and everything should be progressing nicely...  However, if you eat a majority of foods that are avoid for your type, then the flora combination will get distorted and things won't work well.

Is this what you were looking for?

Victoria, have you tried the Sauerkraut? Do the pickles have a lot of pepper in them? I would love to try some of these but buying four big jars just to try seems extreme!

I don't understand what you're asking.  Which pickles?  

I'm personally a goat yogurt eater.    If I was going to eat pickles, which I don't, I'd make my own along the lines of the ideas on this forum for culturing vegetables.  That way, you have complete control over what goes into the product.  There are pickles available in some stores that are "brine" instead of vinegar pickles.  But even so, it would be better to get one from a natural food store that has live enzymes, which is hard to find because it would have to be in the refrigerated section of the store and not heat pasteurized.

My local natural food store sells fresh live sauerkraut, which is pretty tasty, but I don't buy it.
