I am convinced that all the good bacteria in my intestines

Resolved Question:

I am convinced that all the good bacteria in my intestines is dead. It is the only explanation for the 18-20 years of progressively worse diarhhea. I have tried taking probiotics and acidophilous. There has to be a better way. Is there some sort of medical study I can join or something. Is it possible that the absence of the good bacteria is contributing to my tooth decay and other annoying physical ailments? I haven't got a lot of money for tests and stuff. The emotional toll is enough to drive me to suicide some days. Nothing that ever goes in my body stays for very long. Is there anyone out there that can help me please?

Purchase Bio- K ( available in the cold case of health food stores) , which is an excellent probiotic that will not only help with regularity but also improve your immune system, also purchase Benefiber..( Over the counter) and take it per package directions.
