I’ve been lately discussing how to take a single species of bacteria and amplify bacterial counts by making yogurt in the presence of prebiotic fiber. Here, for instance, I described my early experience cultivating a strain of Lactobacillus reuteri. For anyone new to this conversation, the method of making prebiotic-infused yogurt is discussed here; and why we choose higher fat starting liquids, such as half-and-half with around 18% fat, is discussed here. For anyone wishing to avoid dairy, you can also accomplish the same with coconut milk (canned, full-fat), though it requires longer to ferment (typically 48-72 hou...

Conclusions &InferencesAntineuronal antibodies were significantly more frequent in GI patients and associated with functional effects on bowel secretion. Future studies will determine whether such antibodies indicate patients who might benefit from additional antibody‐directed therapies. However, well‐characterized encephalitis‐related autoantibodies such as against DPPX were not detected, underlining their rarity in routine cohorts. In this study, we examined the frequency and functional effects of antineuronal antibodies in gastrointestinal patients. Antineuronal autoantibodies were significantly more frequent...

Traditional Chinese Food Therapy has long been an integral part of dietary practices in Sinosphere Asia. This therapy is defined by the classification of foods into cooling (Yin) and heaty (Yang) and the manipulation of dietary intake of these foods as a therapeutic strategy for chronic diseases. Both functional dyspepsia (FD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are chronic, functional gut disorders widely prevalent in Sinosphere Asia. Diet is increasingly recognized as a symptom trigger in FD and IBS, and the evidence suggesting the utility of diet therapies as front-line management is growing, particularly in the West. Sp...

The trial by Pinto-Sanchez et  al1 published in a recent issue of Gastroenterology reports a relationship between probiotic Bifidobacterium longum NCC3001 and a decrease in depression scores in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS is considered a gut–brain disorder and, thus, many patients with IBS experience dep ression and anxiety symptoms.2–4 Therefore, the results of this trial could be far reaching for people with IBS and lead to an increased use of probiotics with Bifidobacterium longum NCC3001.

Authors: Mahboubi M Abstract Irritable Bowel syndrome (IBS), the most common chronic functional gastrointestinal disorder, is categorized as IBS-C and IBS-D, which are equivalent to Ghoolenj Rihi and Maghs Rihi in Iranian traditional medicine. One of the main applications of Zataria multiflora Boiss in traditional medicine is its efficacy in the gastrointestinal tract with symptoms such as IBS. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of Zataria multiflora essential oil in management of IBS. We used all the accessible references (electronic and published books, theses, and reports) to write this article. ...
