I have been plagued with stomach problems for years. I have had many tests and talked to many doctors. The stomach cramping and pain has even landed me in the emergency room. I always leave with no definitive answer.
I have struggled with gas, bloating, pain, acid reflux, throwing up, and constipation. The latest diagnosis was IBS-C. I was put on one of the latest medications and a daily dose of Miralax. This did give me some relief, but I am not one that likes taking medicine from big pharmaceuticals. It’s bad enough that I have to take medicine for my heart, but I gladly do that because it keeps me alive.
No offense to anyone that has a legitimate diagnosis of IBS, but I think that the diagnosis is used far too often. It’s like the doctor doesn’t have an answer, so they tell you that you have IBS. But, why do you think I have IBS?
I often turn to my locally owned health food store when I am looking for a better alternative. They have a wonderful lady that has helped me find a natural option on more than one occasion. When I talked it over with her, she suggested a product called Candex from Pure Essence Labs. Candex is recommended for those with an overgrowth of candida, but it doesn’t contain the same ingredients that the other candida cleanses do. This one is just vegetarian digestive enzymes.
Where has this been when I was looking for help? I began taking this product as recommended and I couldn’t believe how well it worked for me. I struggled with the two capsules twice daily dose and only did that until I finished the first bottle. It made me feel like I had the flu. Now I take one capsule twice a day. I have noticed that the bloating was almost nonexistent. My stomach is much flatter now, the regularity has been restored. and I haven’t thrown up since I started this.
i have stopped taking the medication from big pharma for IBS-C and I haven’t had a dose of Miralax again. Who knew that digestive enzymes can have such a big impact? I’m a believer!
Have you had any experience with digestive enzymes?
