MY SWOLLEN PAROTID (SALIVA) GLANDS AND PROBIOTICS
Feb 5, 2012

THIS IS NOT A QUESTION....ITS ACTUALLY A COMMENT ABOUT A PROBLEM I HAVE HAD WITH SWOLLEN PAROTID GLANDS. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE THIS PROBLEM....THATS WHY I DECIDED TO POST THIS BECAUSE WHAT WORKED FOR ME MAY WORK FOR OTHER PEOPLE.... I DIDNT KNOW WHAT WAS CAUSING MY SWOLLEN GLANDS, BUT I NOTICED THAT EVERY TIME I WOULD DRINK ALCOHOL OR COFFEE MY SALIVA GLANDS WOULD SWELL AND STAY SWOLLEN FOR A LONG TIME..... AND THEN WHEN I WOULD EAT LOTS OF YOGURT AND TAKE PROBIOTICS, THE SWELLING WOULD COMPLETELY GO AWAY. .....SO I TESTED IT OUT......I DRUNK SOME LIQUOR AND LIKE I EXPECTED, THEY SWELLED.....I TOOK PROBIOTICS FOR A FEW DAYS, AND THEY WENT RIGHT BACK DOWN TO NORMAL....I KNOW THAT DRINKING LIQUOR AND COFFEE DAMAGES THE FLORA IN A PERSONS INTESTINES AND YOGURT AND PROBIOTICS RESTORES THE FLORA.... SO IT HAD ME THINKING THAT THE SWELLING MAY BE TRIGGERED IN SOME WAY BY THE COFFEE AND THE LIQUOR DECREASING MY HEALTHY FLORA......I KNOW IM NOT A DOCTOR.....BUT I JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS SITUATION JUST IN CASE IT MIGHT HELP SOMEBODY GOING THROUGH A SIMILAR SITUATION AS I WAS ...

Response from Mr. Vergel
