Well, I’ve been doing probiotics for several weeks now. I must say that I am really pleased. I’ve had some good results digestion wise.
I’ve also had some surprising results. I have bad diarrhea every menstrual period. I’ve tried adding fiber, taking mylanta, changing what I eat, drinking more water, drinking less water, and more. Nothing works. It comes unbidden and it’s a doozy. Usually, I have a really bad day and then I feel swishy and drained for about 3 days more (which is what I need after cramps and back pain!)
After being on acidopholus for a month, I noticed that although I got diarrhea, the recovery was a heck of alot quicker. I felt pretty good the next day. I decided this was a fluke.
After the first month, I switched to Natrol’s Acidopholus Complex which has other bacteria in it too. The next period, same results. I just had my period last week. I had my bout of diarrhea. By that evening I felt pretty good and I had no problems the next day.
I don’t really know how to explain it. It almost seems too good to be true. But, maybe those good bacteria are waging war on my stomach eruptions–and they are winning. I hope it continues because I like having these quick recoveries.
