Probiotic Therapy

Since writing Bacteria for Breakfast:  Probiotics for Good Health, Karpa has been recognized around the globe as one of the world's leading experts in probiotic therapies.  She receives phone calls and emails daily from patients, physicians, and even pharmaceutical companies seeking information about probiotics. 


Karpa is happy to share her knowledge and experiences with you.  Probiotics may be an effective way to manage a variety of health problems, including (but not limited to):


  • Antibiotic-associated diarrhea
  • Clostridium difficile  (C. diff)
  • Crohn's disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Pouchitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Eczema
  • Food allergies (especially prevention in pregnant women whose children are at high risk)
  • Recurrent vaginal infections
  • Autism
  • Chronic inflammatory disorders (including rheumatoid arthritis)


Karpa may recommend specific probiotic and/or prebiotic products. Recommendations are only made after a complete review of your medical history.  A follow-up letter will be sent to your physician to communicate your concerns and Karpa's recommendations to your health care provider.
