I know I posted this above, but I wanted to make sure it got to people, just in case it helps someone out there.I've had IBS for 15 years now. I've been to several different GI's. I've been on Bentyl, Nulev, Pamine, Symax Duotab, Zoloft, Elavil, etc. I've had all the tests, the crohns disease, the fecal occult, colonoscopy, I've alterred my diet and have still suffered with constant pain, and alternation between d and c.On Sunday (that would be 4 days ago), I decided to try Danon Activia. In a matter of just a few hours for the first time in 15 years, my stomach felt good. I almost cried because it was the first time in a long while that my stomach didn't turn when I ate something, that I didn't end up on the toilet. Instead my bm has been regulated. I have had no bloating, no pain, and normal bm since then, as I've been continuing to eat the Danon Activia. I eat it first thing in the morning and the whole day is marvelously wonderful.I have to say that I cannot believe that something so simple as yogurt with some extra active cultures has had this effect. I had heard about Danon Activia, but thought that it probably wouldn't have a great effect on me, especially since I sometimes eat yogurt and it hasn't exactly agreed with my stomach. So, when I ate the Activia I really didn't think it would do anyting good for me, and in fact, from reading their website I thought that it would give me worse d. In fact, it has only done good for me.Now, I have absolutely no idea if this will last, of course i'm praying to god that it does. But, I just wanted to let everyone know of my success in the hopes that it might help someone else. If this does work, I think that what was going on with my system these past 15 years was an overabundance of the bad bacteria and an underabundance of good bacteria. (I've read about it and perhaps this was a a case of candida syndrome).If you haven't yet, I **implore** you to try Danon Activia and see if it has this wonderful effect on your system too. Most of us have tried everything, so why not try one more thing. If it doesn't work for you, then nothing gained...but I believe it's worth the try.
