My name is Kyle. I have started using some of your products, and I have noticed that they do help a little bit; plus, I have been trying to read some of the information presented by Brenda Watson. Supplements that I have been trying are the intestinew, intestinal bowel soother, digestmore, and the kids digest.
I have a wide variety of problems. Last year, I had my colon removed for colon inertia, so I just have my small intestine connected to my rectum. Also, this year, I had a gastric neurostimulator placed in my body to stimulate my stomach; since I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. As you can see, I have had a variety of problems. I can tell the neurostimulator is starting to help, but I have started to take natural supplements to help with my condition. I have found ginger, b vitamins, cinnamon can help with nausea, and even get me to eat a little bit better and relieve indigestion. At first, I started just taking the kids enzyme because it was easy on my stomach. Then, I started experimenting with the other supplements.
I just want to know what supplements you think I should take because usually my left abdomen can hurt and bloat a little bit everytime I eat or drink due to my gastroparesis. However, since I do not have a colon anymore, I can feel like I have to go to the bathroom sometimes a lot, which affects my eating. I can get sooo much gas and bloating that it makes me nausea. Plus, my gastroparesis can affect my bowel habits because I know I still do not eat enough sometimes to push it out, so I use suppositories. I am tired of using suppositories, and I do feel the best when I at least go a couple times a day (but I don't want diarrhea either), since I am starting to eat a little bit more. I am noticing that I am getting my bowels to regulate and thicker with the intestinew or bowel soother to make me feel a little bit better, and not use imodium (I do not want to use imodium to prevent gas because then I do not want to get stopped up!) However, I am afraid to take certain things sometimes because then I can run into diarrhea mode.
Which products do you think would be best for me to regulate my stomach and intestines, keep gas and bloating in check, etc.? I would appreciate any feedback, as I know this year I am finally getting on the road to health, and I do believe in your products because I think they are helping the most at least controlling some of my symptoms at times, but not all the time. Please help!!!!
Plus, I forgot to add that I feel better knowing that I take natural supplements (that even work better at times) than acid reducers. I am afraid sometimes that I have damaged my stomach or intestines from the years of ppi's, laxatives I have taken and still take every once in awhile, but I am not taking it all the time now. =) Now, I just take a zantac every once in awhile. I hope to hear from you soon!!!
