You may remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about VSL#3 and shared thatI was going to begin takingVSL#3 every day and see how I feel after three weeks. You can read my first post if you are just joining us about this subject.
I am very happy to report that after only three weeks of taking VSL#3 I feel like a whole new person. It is so great not having to rush to a bathroom at the most inopportune times. What I am really impressed with is how much of a difference it has made in my life in such a short period of time. This is especially important to me after all of the other things I have tried to remedy my IBS symptoms with no positive results.
Being able to document and journal my VSL#3 journey has really given me an inside look at how things have turned around for me. If anyone has suffered with IBS you know just how uncomfortable it is, not even factoring in the inconvenience when leaving the house. My VSL#3 journey has been such a positive one that I can’t even express it in words.I no longer pause when asked to go out; I just go without a second thought now. I have a new found confidence when I am at family gatherings. I used to worry about ‘smelling’ up the host’s house, not anymore! I know that is getting very personal, but it is one of the truths you have to live with when you have IBS.
I’m not alone. About 20% of U.S. adults have IBS symptoms. According to a Harris Poll* conducted on behalf of VSL#3, amongst 607 U.S. adults ages 18+ who have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis (UC) or ileal pouch, nearly half of IBS, UC, ileal pouch sufferers (46%) believe all probiotics are pretty much the same. As I can attest to, this is not true! It’s really important to find a probiotic for your specific condition and that has been backed by several studies, such as VSL#3.
VSL#3 has helped me because it is 10 times more potent than the average probiotic – in fact, it is one of the strongest available with a proven track record in helping patients with serious digestive conditions IBS, ulcerative colitis and ileal pouch. VSL#3 must be used under medical supervision. I spoke with my doctor and she was fully supportive of the product.
