I have had diarrhea episodes since I was a kid. I have tried everything, including purchasing products from all over the world (wasting thousands of dollars!). I finally found a natural product that actually works! It stops the diarrhea quickly when I have episode and it prevents it if I take 6 capsules with a meal with food that usually triggers diarrhea. My episodes used to be weeks at a time. Now its about an hour and its over. This product has changed my life and I no longer spend my time worrying where the closest bathroom is when I leave the house! It is sold on different sites across the internet, even Amazon.com. You can do a search for Esdifan online and you should find someone who sells it.

d-free,Thanx for posting regarding Esdifan. How long have you been using it? Do you have to take 6 capsules with every meal or a certain amount as a preventative?It is wonderful that you are experiencing relief. How long did it take to work and how much do you buy a month.I would really be interested in trying this.

I have been using Esdifan for 3 years. I only take the 6 capsules with the meals that I believe will trigger a flare up. Sometimes when I feel the gurgling during or after a meal, I will take 6 capsules to be sure I don't have a problem. It is completely natural and non toxic so you can't take too many.It depends on how bad a flare up is to say how quickly it works. When I first started taking it, I took 6 capsules 3 times a day for 3 days and it let my body calm down and start healing itself. Now I only need 1 bottle per 1 or 2 months, but they have a deal on their website for buy 2 get 1 free so it is really not that expensive, especially compared to the other (so called) cures on the internet. Their website is www.esdifan.com

d-free,Thanx for answering! Were you on meds prior to trying Esdifan? I take Bentyl and Lomotil at least twice a day and sometimes 3 times mine is so bad. Were you this bad? If I don't take the meds, I have no control of the "D".Thanx again for your help.

Esdifan has been on the market for 3 years since thats when I found it on the internet (spending hours researching for help). It may have just recently started picking up some steam and thats why you are seeing it more. I would never take drugs for diarrhea since even just imodium causes me problems. From my understanding and the information and studies I looked up, zeolite is a natural mineral that has never been shown to be toxic at any level or cause reactions to anyone. It has been used in Europe for years and even used by the russians at chernobyl to help the people after the accident there to remove all the toxins and poisons from their bodies. I think that was in the 70's. I too was concerned about trying another product after all of the flops I came accross through the years (and paid for). No one told any of you that you had to try it. It works for me and I was just trying to share information with what is working for me. If you want to be negative about the information than feel free to continue to suffer with your diarrhea but stop complaining that you tried everything.

I have been using Esdifan for only a few days now, but I do have to say that it seems to be working. I want to use it for a while longer before I say that my D is absolutely under control, and, without JINXING myself, the D seems to be gone for now. As a matter of fact, last night I had Taco Bell and so far, this morning I feel fine. I'll have to see how it goes within the next few days, but I think if you have a problem with D, you should definitely give this a shot. It seems from the research I have done on the ingredients in Esdifan, it seems to have less of a chance of side effects and drug interactions than even Immodium. Well, that's it for now. I'll keep you posted on how things go.

If I recall the ingredients it does have calcium in it as well as the zeolite. So you may need to keep an eye on total calcium intake for the day (so I wouldn't take other calcium supplements).Calcium alone does a pretty good job for some people and generic calcium carbonated is pretty cheap.Various clays/minerals have been used for Diarrhea as well, but I think on their own they tend to take awhile to work, so adding the calcium probably helps a lot.K.

Well this is day 3 and so far the "D" seems to be gone, in fact I may be a little on the "C" side so I might have to lower the amount I am taking. You know, there seems to be a few people on this board that dismiss everything that's out there as "garbage" or "a waste of money". I don't think it is fair that people condemn a product without first trying it or knowing much about it. For instance, I have taken calcium before, which did nothing but upset my stomach, but I know for a fact, it has helped many people. So, I'm not going to go on this board and condemn calcium just because it didn't work for me. I'm not saying this stuff is the "cure all" for everyone and I haven't been taking it long enough to say it's going to be the answer for me either, but I think we shouldn't post negative things about this product because it may discourage people who may actually benefit from it, which is not fair to people who are thinking of trying it, or the company who makes the product. All I'm saying is I think we should be open minded about new products and not condemn them right away. I've only taken this product for three days and I have eaten spicy foods which is always a trigger for me. I have not taken any Immodium in three days and so far, no "D". Who knows, maybe this will be the new calcium for some people. Good luck and I hope other people find relief.

Right on Plexx. If anything, you would think that the makers of DA-IBS are the ones who own this board since people keep pushing the digestive advantage product which is just basically taking Acidophilus that has been around forever and if it had been such a great "cure" for IBS, doctors would have been pushing it since it was first discovered. Its amazing that you try and help others who are suffering with the same problem as you and immediately get discounted as a scam. Isn't giving good information what this board is all about? I guess everyone should have discounted everything you guys said when you first joined the board (ebbie and sage). It's not really fair to place judgement this way. I guess you could call it "newbie" discrimination. Maybe when I have been on the board 10 years my opinion will finally matter.

D-free..you just have to understand that we do have an endless supply of sales people who come here pitching their product.It gets really old, and one of the signs is new member saying "this cured me" sort of post. Somehow it is different if we have seen you here through the finding a treatment phase rather than just at the end, but stick around and be real about your IBS experince and people will start to get a better sense of whether you are selling something or for real. Maybe it is "newbie" discrimination, but sales people are always posting the cure on their first post, and often that is the only post we get (other than the standard why do you care if I am a sales person or not, you people just want to stay sick or you would be emailing me, which I love...)Although yours really does not fit the standard script all that much, we have had WAY TOO many sales people here (my mother's nurse told her about this product behind the doctor's back and it cured....fill in the name of the disease from the medical board you are posting to.... Or a friend of mine told me about this product...And then and the end it is the email me for details. Big hint is those people never tell you the name of the product because they don't want you finding a distributor that isn't them)Since you didn't fit that I felt a bit better about the "I'm new here with a cure" type of post
A lot of people here used DA-IBS when it first came out they offered free samples to the board, and strangely enough many people had good results. That is why that brand gets mentioned a lot.A lot of people on the board have had great sucess with all sorts of brands of probiotic bacteria. Like any cure (including the calicum that is in this product) no one treatment helps everyone, but a lot of treatments help some of the people here.There are some studies that indicate that for some people with IBS probiotics may be helpful. K.

I had just found out about the board and never knew it existed. I have been dealing with IBS my whole life and I realized that calcium was helpful by myself through reading studies and such. Probiotics never helped me. They always made me worse. I wish I would have found the board earlier and been able to save me the time of all of the research and experimenting with things that I have done. Esdifan is by no means a "cure" but it has helped me tremendously and let me go out to eat again without having to run home and it stops my episodes which used to be weeks at a time and is now only an hour or 2. Hopefully it will help others as well, but as we all know, nothing works for everyone. I am going to email the company that makes Esdifan and tell them about the board. Maybe they will do the same thing with samples. I want them to be successful and stick around so I don't have to start over with finding something that works for me again.
