Hi, I'm a new memeber but have been following this site for a few months now. I have a few questions, all relating to the one proglem I have. I have not had good answers from any doctor, gastroenterologist, Internal Medicine doctors or even standard md's. So maybe you guys could help me.
I have had serious colon/intestinal trouble since I was little. I grew up on a VERY poor diet, well on my way to obesity, thankfully I had caught myself at age 12 (now 23 yrs old). My problem is I always feel clogged, ful, bloated, upset, queezy, nauseous and gernally uncomfortable in my lower stomach area and stomach.
I stopped drinking milk, in any form. I drink only soy milk, eat organic Kashi cereals, chicken(steamed) and a lot of veggies, fruits sparingly, or minimally because the sugar upsets me. I dont eat bread, no gluten. Gluten free noodles (brown nice noodles) and fish. I dont very much at all, I lowerd my intake because my will to eat has severely diminished. I am still healthy, I cook meals regularly, but I take in small portions throughout the day. I dont eat ANY junk food, t just doesnt taste good. I need to know why my lower abs, gut sticks out all of the time? Like I have a beer belly or something. I exercise, some people consider me under weight, I always hear "you need to eat" I am 5'5, 130 lbs, with a gut. I have had colonics, it helped shrink my tummy a little bit, but then the funds ran out ($54.00 a pop) isnt very cheap when getting them twice a week, not to mention the hour and a 1/2 commute one way to the nearest clinic.
Why are my intestines swollen/bloated? Are they even bloated? What is causing this problem, it isnt gas, I have taken stuff for that, I know it isnt all gas causing bloating, I really dont even know what it is. I know I have impaction, but my diet or just even way of eating isnt helping. I am in between jobs with a moderate amount of debt while still in school and hope soon I can try this product. My questions though are really important, I have been trying to figure out why this is so and what is causing it since I was 13....
Will oxy powder shrink my stomach? Are my intestines and/or organs inflamed and protruding it? when I flex my stomach, I can see me 6 pack, my stomach is flat, when I release I have a gut. I dont get it, exercise, low food intake ( but enough) and general good health arent enough?
I have been through the gastro's and everyone, they put me on miralax, it increases my frequency from once or twice a week to once every other day but still, no real sign of anything.
When I lie down at night and right above my hip bones are the two tubes on both sides of my stomach, that when I feel or push on, feel like hoses, hard and they give me the feeling like I have to have a Bowl Movement, they dont make me have one, just the feelings like I need too, untill I stop pushing. are these my intestinal walls, they are hard, that is impaction right?
Someone please tell me what is gong on, why it's going on and if this product would benefit or even take care f this problem
I have been struggling for 11 years now. Everyone else I am around have 6 packs, eat pizza and drink beer and here I am mr. healthy, with amazing self-control and a gut, from what?
