Posted by Gena in Gena's Blog, 29 July 2015 · 178 views

I am out of breath, exhausted, nauseated, constipated and I get full fast.
I have tried magnesium,...

A Solution for GERD

Posted by msg in msg's Blog, 14 July 2015 · 2,730 views

For the last 2 years, I had been getting thick phlegm accumulated in my throat during my sleep.  Sometimes, I would have had to get up and go to the bathroom to clear it.  In the mornings, the phlegm would come out in a dark brown color.  Sometimes, I had bad breath that would have filled out the bedroom.
 
I originally thought it had...

IBS, friends, family, anxiety

I love having a place to actually share how I feel with others without them thinking I'm completing disgusting, weird, and feeling as if I'm constantly being judged...because that's often what I feel on a day-to-day basis.

Posted by Nicole W. in Nicole W.'s Blog, 04 May 2015 · 4,453 views

The doctor gave me antibiotic...
