I am who I said I am on my site. I do hope to have a picture up soon. I'm exhausted trying to get everything organized -- this has been trying.
PD works for me. I suppose I didn't start taking it with the degree of problems you had - it agreed with my digestive track, and in a little over a month I lost the thick white fuzz on my tongue (thrush) - and felt less tired. This is the probiotics I also put mom on - she's a cancer survivor who continues to battle UTIs. So between Antibiotics for serious flare-ups and d-mannose for prevention (it does a "decent" job for 8-9 months then WHAM, UTI back) in between, I wanted her on a probiotics. I gave her what worked for me, and she seems to tolerate it well.
I appreciate your research, and will try and learn more ... I would have appreciated YOU had you not come after me in attack mode. I'll chalk it up to your anger with BS marketing.
I hesitate to call you -- we could meet someday, perhaps - I'm south of you, near Randolph AFB (Schertz, TX - I see you're from Austin?).
My goal, on my website, is to help "incompletely healthy" boomers get healthier ... I'll research PD more thoroughly, and if I'm convinced I'm doing my peers a disservice, I'll recommend something better.
