hi
Erceflora is a preparation consisting of suspension of Bacillus clausii spores, normal inhabitants of the intestine, with no pathogenic powers.
Administered orally, Bacillus clausii spores, due to their high-resistance to both chemical and physical agents, cross the barrier of the gastric juices reaching unharmed the intestinal tract where they are transformed into metabolically active vegetative cells.
The administration of Bacillus clausii contributes to the recovery of the intestinal microbial flora altered during the course of microbial disorders of diverse origin
after taking it effect will start in within 12 hrs.
but as it take time to recover normal colony of bacteria ,total effect come in 3-5 days.

Hi doc! My 6 month old daughter was recently diagnosed with amoebiasis. We are giving her metronidazole, erceflora, and hydrite for fluid loss. I am just worried because when her grandmother was giving the erceflora medication (directly my mouth and because they were kinda playing so that she will happily take the medication) some were accidentally dropped on her left eye. We tried to wash it off, but still crazy worried coz i know that its spores and healthy bacteria but its on eyes. Should we be really worried? Thanks in advance

I am taking doxycline as prophylaxis for a tick bite, but it s wreaking havoc with my GI tract (excessive gas and bloating). I ve just started using a probiotic yogurt twice a day, but am 2/3 thru the regimen. Anything else I can do to offset the side effects?

Hello, my name is Cheryl. I am a 45 yr old female. Was diagnosed several yrs ago with IBS (cramping, bloating, alternating constipation/diarrhea). About 8 yrs ago was diagnosed with diverticulitis, confirmed with followup sigmoidoscopy. Have had several flareups since then treated with liquid diet and antibiotics. About 18 months ago developed hives (now chronic). The hives clear up when I am on antibiotics for diverticulitis (flagyl/cipro). Have had a CT scan (said nothing remarkable), have had stool cultures for parasites, bloodwork (CBC, TSH, tested for lupus, etc)-everything negative. Am back to diarrhea with stomach pain, undigested food and mucous in stool. Tried probiotics, made hives worse (cortisone shot also made hives worse). Have also had some RAST tests for food allergies, all negative, and stopped eating gluten a couple of years ago. Do you have any suggestions of what I might request to be tested for at this point? Thank you for your time.

Hi, I am a 61 year old who recently saw my GYN, while there I told her I get a lot of yeast infections, I think because I am cortisone dependant, and antibiotics tend to give me yeast infections as well. I always was noticing an odor...she suggested a probiotic. I have been using a brand called Healthy Belly because it has Lactobacillus Acidophilus in it and states that inhibits the growth of candida. Well my health food store stopped selling it and recommended Florastor.....will this help with odor and yeast infections? Is there much of a difference

i recently had a septoplasty & tubernectomy surgery.My doctor then prescrided antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors in order to reduce GERD which he suspected was a cause of my persistent sore throat.before the operation i had taken aloe vera & probiotics to reduce fatigue.after the course of PPI i now have excessive flatulence & fecal incontinesy which is very embarassing. i have researched on the internet and the problem points to small intestines bacterial overgrowth. can i take gastric acid supplements like betaine HCL to correct this.Ihave tried various supplements & antibiotics but the problem keeps on reccuring
