I have eaten a Paleo diet for a year and feeling better then ever and not having stomach issues 98% of the time.
I started eating like this because I had acne problems but noticed alot of things in my health got better and continued to do it.
As I said no problems with the gut but as I have researched acne links and leaky gut have a strong connection.
Today 95% of my acne is gone but I have read that probiotics can help even more with making your gut more resilient and toelrating with eating some foods without making you breakout.
I bought Solgar multi billion dophilus:
Advanced Multi-Billion Dophilus®(100% Dairy Free) Vegetable Capsules
Solgar® Advanced Multi-Billion Dophilus® Vegetable Capsules are a source of beneficial microorganisms L. acidophilus, B. lactis, L. paracasei and L. rhamnosus GG. This product is formulated to protect these organisms from stomach acidity, helping to maintain a healthy intestinal flora.
FREE OF: Yeast, Wheat, Soy, Gluten and Dairy Products and are formulated without the use of Artificial Flavours, Preservatives or Colours
And I have eaten 1 capsule a day for 10 days when I got really sick on day 10.
In the first week I had gas problems but nothing other than that. At day 10 I think I got what it+s called a herx reaction or a "die-off" to the probiotics and I got vomit, fever, nausea etc
I have not taking the suppplement for three days now because I felt really sick.
I however read that a herx reaction can be a good thing but I maybe have to step down my intake.
What is your take on it? Should I stop taking the probiotics? Should I take like 1/4 of the dosage and if that´s the case should I open a pill and stir it in water?

are u still taking them?
I stopped taking them because I feel great almost all the time without them.
I felt like complete shit taking them so not worth it imo.
Just a experiment with the acne since many experts in paleo says it can do good.
Still not 100% recovery but getting better everyday in my stomach since I stopped.
Maybe i´ll try a different probiotics in the future but for now I just want to feel good again.
