Digestive Conditions: Chrohn’s, IBS, Colitis, etc.


Acid Reflux and Irritable Bowel

I had been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Esophageal Reflux over a year ago. I was given a prescription for the reflux condition, but tried to control the IBS with diet – no dairy products, roughage, chocolate, caffeine, etc. In other words, taking the fun out of eating! Even then I had flare ups and had to be on a liquid diet for several days to allow my intestinal tract to settle down. I lost about 15 pounds in a short time.
Optiflora was a Godsend. My condition has subsided – no diarrhea, bloating, or cramping. I can eat anything as long as I don’t overdo it and have not had a spell of IBS for months. By adding 3 Peppermint Ginger after meals, I no longer need a prescription medicine for the Reflux condition either. All thanks to Shaklee’s wonderful research and commitment to “the best”.

Acid Reflux – Relied on TUMS for years!

My husband had his gall bladder removed many years ago, and has relied on ”tums” for years. For the past 8 years he has used Chewable Calcium which totally takes care of any acid reflux or other digestive woes.

IBS – No More Stomach Cramps or Symptoms

Having IBS has caused many uncomfortable and painful years of my life. I have taken prescription medication for years and have watched my diet. Just after using the Optiflora for 1 month, I could physically feel the difference. No more severe stomach cramps or IBS symptoms. At first I thought it was just a coincidence but then the true test came with a few bouts of extremely stressful situations. My IBS was unaffected. I am so pleased with this product!!! Anyone experiencing IBS should give this product a try. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Help for Chrohn’s

Stephanie’s disease had flared again and it was determined that the fistula in her colon had opened. The doctor’s gave her two options: surgery or try one more strong drug that has side affects and is very expensive.
I had been researching natural alternatives for a few months and had found Shaklee food supplements as a possible way to help Stephanie without the drastic measure the doctors wanted to take. Together Stephanie and I decided we have to try these before anything else.
The first couple of weeks were hard because she would get nauseated. But after the first two weeks, Stephanie noticed she was getting her appetite back, so was able to eat more regular meals and even increase the food supplements. In the last week and a half, I have started getting calls from Stephanie about the amazing work out she was just able to complete and how well she felt all day.
We had her blood work done, and her white and red blood cell count is fine. She is a little anemic. But what is amazing is a month ago her CRT protein count which shows inflammation was at 180 way high. Today that count was 70 just above normal. All this in just 30 days of good natural supplements (not synthetic vitamins). We are so happy we have found a more natural way to heal and restore health to Stephanie.
