[2020-12-17 04:04:25] <Lucifer_arma> Well, the process of making yogurt removes the lactose from the milk, so yogurt is a known safe snack for lactose intolerant people
[2020-12-17 04:04:51] <Lucifer_arma> I did some googling, and apparently some of the bacteria in yogurt can and will survive all the way into the intestinal tract
[2020-12-17 04:05:23] <Lucifer_arma> With probiotics in general, though, as long as you keep taking them, you'll have the bacteria in your gut. When you stop, it'll all get killed.
[2020-12-17 04:05:51] <Lucifer_arma> As you suggest, colonizing the gut is harder than just getting there.
[2020-12-17 04:06:50] <Lucifer_arma> Now, having eaten a good-sized helping of yogurt three days in a row, I already feel like I've gotten a deep colon cleanse, and there's no diarrhea (like you'd have with lactose intolerance)
[2020-12-17 04:07:34] <Lucifer_arma> I haven't been eating a lot otherwise, so I'm wondering how much of the overall mass is unprocessed yogurt vs old stuff that just hadn't made its way out
[2020-12-17 04:08:36] <Lucifer_arma> it's a surprisingly difficult question to answer, since my antidepressant has a side effect of constipation. With the removal of my gall bladder, I'm also no longer able to throttle up the enzyme used to digest fats (produced in the liver, stored in the gall bladder until needed)
[2020-12-17 04:09:22] <Lucifer_arma> but more importantly, overall I've been feeling a bit better. So even if it's just a placebo effect, it's worth continuing to do for now. It takes time for the body to adapt to significant diet changes, after all.
[2020-12-17 04:10:34] <Lucifer_arma> I'm considering cutting my antidepressant in half again, since it also has a side effect that makes me really tired. When I was taking 3 of them, I was basically narcoleptic, but not depressed. So I cut it down to two, and have been doing better, but still a lot of lethargy
[2020-12-17 04:12:13] <Lucifer_arma> but unlike your wife, I started in a pretty deep depression that was fueling substance abuse and being in turn fueled by the substance abuse, so where I'm at right now still represents quite an improvement overall
[2020-12-17 04:12:35] <Lucifer_arma> it's just that depression isn't something you just wake up from, it's often a long-term thing
