Probiotics Helps Relieve Symptoms from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Lactose Intolerance, Cold and Flu, Allergies and More
Do you suffer from IBS- irritable bowel syndrome, Gerds- acid reflux, Chronic Diarrhea, or Lactose intolerance? Well I do!
I have been diagnosed with all of the above. I have spent the last couple of years suffering from symptoms such as bloating, constipation, urgency, diarrhea, acid reflux, heartburn, and gas. At times it seems like I am on a constant roller-coaster ride going from bloating and constipation to days of dirrhea, sometimes having to literally run for the restroom, with occasion heartburn on the side. I have been to several doctors, and a couple of specialist. I have had colonostopy, endoscope, cat-scan, ultrasound, and MRI all done on me not to mention several blood test. All the testing just confirmed what the doctors had diagnosed all along. I have had medicine after medicine tried on me. But with very little success.
I have tried modified diets which varied depending on the doctor suggesting them some seemed to help a little but none of this helped me to stop the frequent roller coaster rides that these diseases inflicted upon me. I had already been to see two different internal medicine specialist, a stomach specialist and a liver specialist before I was referred to the last specialist to perform my last round of scopes, MRI and cat-scan that was recommended it had been approximately 5 yrs since my last tests. This specialist was another stomach specialist and after performing all the tests and lots of lab work to eliminate any other possibilities she talked to me about probiotics.
None of the other doctors or specialist had asked or suggested this before in the 5yrs that I had been plagued with these problems.
So lets start off with what is probiotics. Well you may have heard the term before in a commercial on TV, the drug store, or in a magazine. But what are they? Well simply they are good bacteria and microorganisms that live in your body. There should be billions of them in your body. They help your body digest food or help protect you from other harmful bacteria that can make you sick. Probiotics help your imune system and digestive system work better. Probiotics may help prevent or treat diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammation of the large intestine and collen, Lactose intolerance, allergy symptoms- such as a runny nose, and cold and flu symptoms, urinary track infections and more.
Wow! Once It was suggested to me that all the problems I had been having could be worse because I didn’t have enough good bacteria in my body it made perfect sense. And it explained why I seemed to have no immune system at all because everytime I got around someone with a cold I got sick also.
So where do you find probiotics? You can find them in food such as yogurt, or in dietary supplements like acidophilus. But the dietary supplement my stomach specialist suggested for me has been truly amazing!
The product is called Align it is a probiotic supplement for digestive care and balancing defense. It helps to naturally defend against 5 signs of digestive imbalance. Ongoing protection from episodic constipation, diarrhea, urgency, gas and bloating.
My specialist suggested Align and gave me free samples because I am lactose intolerant and can’t have yogurt and would have to be very careful where the acidophilus came from because some of it comes from dairy products. So she suggested Align. Because it contains no lactose, soy or gluten.
What is align it is a probiotic that helps you build and maintain a strong healthy digestive system with each align daily digestive care capsule containing approximately one billion healthy bacteria. It works because your body needs good bacteria for healthy digestion. Episodic digestive upsets can result from changes in the delicate balance of these healthy bacteria. Align helps maintain that balance by taking just one capsule a day.
