I am writing this review in hopes that I can help someone else who is experiencing what I have been through ...
I became so sick, every time I ate ... pain, bloating, sometimes even vomiting. My life was being ruined and it just kept getting worse. I started to fear food and became very thin because eating was so painful. I constantly had to explain to people at work and at social gatherings why I wasn't eating.
I spent years going to doctors, specialist, gastroenterologists, nutritionists - including a full week at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona (they ran every test they could throw at me to no avail). Finally as a Hail Mary, my gallbladder was removed (waste - that wasn't the problem).
After a food sensitivity panel done by a nutritionist + an intense elimination diet ... it was determined I had food sensitivities to: wheat, eggs, soy, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, watermelon, strawberry ... People thought I was crazy or making it up in my head - "No one has sensitivities to that many things." Thankfully my family saw what I was going through, how much I was suffering, and never gave up trying to help me.
I tried other probiotics in the past, including one that I'm pretty sure was by prescription only. I also took digestive enzymes every time I ate ... and that helped a bit.
I noticed a slight improvement after about a month and decided to order another bottle, just in case. After two full months of taking this probiotic daily, I starting testing the waters a bit - slowly at first. After purposefully eating things that I knew would provoke symptoms, it became apparent that not only was I feeling better - I was cured ... CURED !!!
Here I am now, about 90 days after first starting and I am eating absolutely everything I want and only rarely feeling symptoms. When I do feel uncomfortable I take a digestive enzyme (digest spectrum or digest gold by enzymedica).
This literally changed my life. My husband and I went on a dinner date for the first time in years. I can finally go to lunch or dinner with friends and not be the weirdo whispering to the waiter about my food sensitivities and requesting plain chicken.
I am beyond thankful. I consider it a miracle that I not only found this product, but continued taking it after the first month. I can live a normal life and that is all I ever wanted.
