    Have you had an upper GI or a scope done? They may be able to give you a diagnosis. My son had stomach, and reflux problems. They scoped him and found out the sphinture at the top of the stomch didn't close all the way. FYI

    I think that is 100% great advice, I found out my problem only after being scoped

    Changed my life because I knew EXACTLY what I was dealing with, and I had these problems for over 15 years before finding the diagnosis.

    Do you still have stomach ulcers and do you know what caused them...drinking, smoking, stress or autoimmune disease?

    Well I guess that makes my NOW Foods Probiotic Defense totally useless. I actually knew better than to get a freeze-dried probiotic prod... I was just hoping that this time it might be good. Oh well.

    Three things I find very helpful for beating hietal hernia:

    1) Chamomile extract
    2) Ginger
    3) Cinammon

    Chamomile extract is amazing and I highly recommend it for hietal hernia. It took a few days to kick in but it worked very well for me. One of my favorite supplements ever.

    Did you do it all in pill form or just mix a type of "tea" with the powders? How much of each?

    I use Nature's Way Chamomile extract pills

    At first I front load them, (when having problems, like I'm stressed out) taking 2-4 per meal. Once things calm down and the effect kicks in (after a few weeks) I will back off and go down to sometimes 1 every morning. Right now I go with 2 before breakfast and 2 before bed. Works well for me.

    I just noticed some read marks on one of Guy Health caps today. I threw it out. Also my caps are slimy and most are half or less full. Is this normal?

    These pills are a little bit different due to them being an effective probiotic. I believe it uses (from the study I linked to above):
    a patented oil-based prebiotic anaerobic encapsulation system for an extended preservation of probiotic at room temperature and a rapid recovery after in vivo administration has been developed for a dose-efficient functional delivery of KE-99.
    So the pills will be a little slimy, they will also be hard. I do not know what you mean by "half full", maybe you literally do really mean "half". However, mine are 80-90% full--which is how they are supposed to be.

    Yes the caps are either a quarter of only halfway full. I received them like this from Nutraplanet. I wondered about it but never questioned it.

    Wow, thanks!. No I don't think they got overheated. I keep all my sups in a dark cabinet. Maybe something happened during shipping because it has been really cold here. I'm thinking maybe from being warm on the trucks, and they being cold outside...I don't know. Email sent though!. Awesome customer service!. You are always on top of things!.

    The slimyness you feel is mostly the enteric coating, BTW.

    I have a question about gut health. I had bacterial overgrowth a couple of years ago, and now I think it may be back. I'm having all the horrible symptoms( gas, cramping, bloating ect.. Will this product get rid of it, or do I have to go back to the doctor and get tested for it, and get medication? I had surgery for my acid reflux a while back, and while it worked for acid reflux, I have had problems with gas and bad cramping every since.

    Re acid reflux - please take this for what it cost you - it is a free suggestion.

    I DO NOT HAVE acid reflux, so I can't say if this actually works.

    I am told that AR results from the stomach sensing too little acid. If true, adding antacids would seem to make the problem worse, but address the symptoms.

    As counter-intuitive as it seems, I read a study (somewhere) that suggests adding apple cider vinegar is an effective way to treat AR.

    Again, you might want to research this. I am by no means passing this on as a recommendation - just a suggestion that this might be something worth looking into.

    I do not have acid reflux anymore. If you read my post, I said I had surgery to eliminate my acid reflux. I have what I think is bacterial overgrowth.

    As with any supplement, GUT Health is not designed, nor does it claim, to treat any disease. You always need to discuss the situation with your physician. PLease, by all means, bring up GUT Health to him.

    Probiotics, and GUT Health in particular, are designed to maintain the healthy colonization of your intestinal flora. Unhealthy strains of bacteria can definitely cause some of the symptoms you are experiencing. Probiotics should be a regular part of everyone's regimen anyway.

    Again, please speak to your doctor.

    Should I take it with or without food?


    I also take VPX Fiberteq which has

    Viable Bacteria 2,500,000:
    Lactobacillus Acidophilus
    Lactobacillus Casei
    Bifidobacterium Infantis

    Is this gonna be to much probiotic? Is that even possible?

    Well, I ate Dannon Activia for 2 weeks, and I must say there were noticeable changes (good changes) to digestion and excretion.

    As far as too much probiotic, that's definitely a question for a gastro doc.

    I wouldn't over do it personally.

    You pretty much cannot overdose on good bacteria. There is only so much surface area on your intestinal tract. The rest will just be excreted.

    I think it would be kinda counter productive seeing as how the AB's kill off gut flora. It would IMO be a great thing to take once the AB's are discontinued to help recolonize and build up gut integrity.

    Hey guy's

    For whatever it's worth I would like to recomend a book for you to read. It's called Natural cures that "They" don't want you to know about. It was written by Kevin Trudeau and the information has helped me a lot. I can't summerize the whole book but the main point is that drugs do not cure our health problems, they only suppress the symtoms and always have some sort of side effect. The major reason we have health issues is from all the toxins we have put in our bodies from the chemicals that are in the store bought food we eat and prescription and non prescription drugs etc. If you really want to get healthy, start by doing a colon cleanse, liver/gallblader cleanse, kidney cleanse, heavy metal cleanse, parasite cleanse, candida cleanse. Just doing these cleanses will eliminate most of the toxins in your body and enable your body to be able to heal itself much better. I have been doing a colon cleanse and am gaining both physical and mental energy by the day. The other thing is to stop putting so much toxic stuff in your body. I have had a lot of stomach problems and am going to try a all natural product called aloecure. You can check it out at aloecure.com for more info. I have not tried it yet but have heard very good things. Any way, Kevin Trudeau's book has helped millions of people overcome there health ailments and I just thought I would mention that here because I can see that many of you have some stomach/intestinal issues. I do believe that you can be healed without the use of drugs or surgery.

    I did...hence my post.

    As an insomniac, Mr. Trudeau's "show" is something I watch frequently. While I can agree with the concept of chelation/elimination of toxins, I don't think the products they sell are anything too special...definitely not enough to derail a thread with SPAM.

    Actually, Mr. Trudeau does not sell or even endorse any specific name brand remedy.

    What is this SPAM that you speak of?

    You may not be convinced with what Kevin is saying and I don't have a problem with that at all. However millions of people around the world have been cured of many things ranging from acid reflux to cancer and since some of the people posting had said they had some stomach problems I thought I would pass some information that might be helpful to them.

    If my first post bothers you that much, just let me know and I will remove it.

    Not at all. I am a firm believer in freedom of expression.
