6 days ago · IBS Relief at Last in Digestive Health

Thank you for sharing & I am delighted that the diet is working for you. I went through what you went through & totally agree with you about food sensitivity & Ibs. I have to stay away from gluten lactose sucrose & as you say it is in everything we buy often disguised by other names. If I only eat fresh produce & cook everything myself I am fine. Ate a salad already prepared with kinoa last week & had a terrible Ibs attack because it had soya in it.
Commercially prepared food is what makes us sick
It is hard work to prepare everything we est but it is worth it. It also took me 2 years to id everything I react to keeping a diary of everything I ate & I am also re-introducing food back gradually as per Mayo ´s recommendation & it works. Good luck to you🍀you are on the right track!

Wed, Aug 7 4:51am · Side to side osmosis in Digestive Health

Had to have a colectomy because of frequent diverticulitis attacks 8 years ago but the osmosis was done side to side instead of straightforward & I was wondering if anyone else had this surgery done this way & if they have any problems? I have a lot of lower back pain especially before I defecate & my stools are always floating (because of the short transit?)
Cannot do a colonoscopy anymore because they cannot go through which is scary because there is lot of colon cancer in my family.
Would very much appreciate any comments. Thank you

For those of you who want to get rid of your migraines without using drugs I recommend the book The brain that change itself by Norman Doidge MD it is about neuroplasticity & it might take you 6 months of training yourself but it works if you believe in it! Good luck 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Thu, Apr 4 6:16am · I'm having multiple odd episodes that are keeping me undiagnosed. Help in Brain & Nervous System

Dear John I have a lot of your symptoms which in my case I partly explain by the fact that I have a short transit because I had a colon resection. Pain can raise Blood Pressure & your fast heartbeats are probably the results of anxiety. It is frightening to have symptoms we cannot explain..so we become anxious & that by itself can create weird symtoms. It is a vicious circle. I have also been disgnosed with IBS Yellow stools are probably caused by a lack of digestive enzymes. What helps me with all of the above is meditation. As we age our neuro system like our other systems deteriorate & create strange hard to explain symptoms as well. Good 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Thu, Apr 4 5:57am · C. difficile -are your guts ever normal again ? in Digestive Health

I only know one thing that can restore gut health after having contracted c-diff & that is a fecal transplant..it works! I have also read that poop pills are now available. Talk to your Gastro or do some Research. Mayo may even be able to help. Good luck!🙏🏻

Why on earth did you have to have cortisone for eye surgery? I was on Cortisone for giant cell arteritis & it took me one year very gradually be able to stop… serious side efects.. Could not get the surgery I needed in Canada went to Mayo Jacksonville & had it done there: excellent care
Also have been to Rochester for Executive checkup again impressed. Not so much on my last visit at Jacksonville.. Although it is supposed to be non profit…all of a sudden like everywhere & anythi g else it has become very expensive..I had a new Internist who scheduled tests after tests without discussing with me & I had to cancell tests I did not need (they had been done very recently in Canada$
Even then my bill was huge & I did not leave with a solution because I felt I was a cash register so I interrupted the process not wanting to end up with a $100,000.00 bill!
