Acidophilus

I have suffered with tummy issues for years. I know this is too much information, but sometimes I go months with diarrhea. Basically whenever I eat food, I have to run to the bathroom. It got to the point where it was negatively affecting my life. I refused to eat unless I was home (or super close to home). If we were at the shore swimming or in Philadelphia for the day, I would just starve until we got home. Food = intense stomach cramps and diarrhea. And you already know the story with the yeast infections lately.

Anyways, I have been taking an acidophilus capsule with every meal for the last two weeks. Although I am kind of afraid to talk about it (for fear of jinxing myself), I have noticed a big improvement with my digestive tract. My stomach doesn't hurt every time I eat! And I don't have to run to the bathroom after every meal! Yay me! Don't get me wrong, acidophilus isn't a miracle. I have still had several diarrhea episodes in the past few weeks. But 2 episodes is much MUCH better than 14 episodes.

So all you ladies with tummy issues, I highly recommend buying some acidophilus.

I ran out and need to get more, but I take a double dose twice a day to feel 'normal'. I am so glad you are on your way to feeling much better.

PS. I'm getting a damn yeast infection, which also shows I am out of my probiotics. Ugh.

I am interested in this for my mom. She has the same problem. I wonder if someone with high blood pressure can take it...
