I am a thirty-one-year-old accountant and don’t think I write very well but I wanted to share my story anyway.
I was diagnosed a few years ago with IBS by a gastroenterologist. I took Zelnorm and Miralax for over a year and they didn’t help at all. My condition was that I was severely constipated and extremely gassy. I had to take prescription laxatives to get any movement from my bowels but nothing I ever did was really very effective and it felt like I was just playing games and my intestines were always losing. I got extremely bloated with intestinal gas every single day. It would start right after breakfast. By the time I would get to work I would be so swollen and uncomfortable that I would have to unbutton my pants. After lunch, it only got worse. I felt like my stomach was swollen as big as a basketball. I had to run to the restroom every twenty minutes just to sit down on the toilet and let out the gas. I was so uncomfortable all the time. I couldn’t wait to get out of work and get home and put on my sweatpants. This was my daily routine for years.
I started working with Russell Mariani in September 2004, after much encouragement from my gynecologist, Maxine Costa. She knew about my problems for years, and she had worked with Russell directly on some digestive problems of her own. After much procrastination, I finally called. I was so miserable and uncomfortable and nothing else was working. I had to try something different.
Russell walked me through my first official colon cleanse. Actually, he talked me through it over the phone. He taught me about proper daily hydration and introduced me to probiotics and what to eat for breakfast and what not to eat for breakfast. He taught me the importance of eating more slowly and deliberately and really chewing my food.
Within a few short weeks, all the gas and bloating were gone. No more basketball size belly. No more running to the restroom at work every twenty minutes. No more unbearable pain and discomfort. I started having regular daily bowel movements for the first time in years. I know exactly what to do to maintain my great intestinal condition and how to prevent problems from happening again in the future. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have finally solved these problems. And I know at least one other person who is excited too.my fiance. I will be getting married in the spring of 2005!
Russell’s Intestinal Regeneration Program works. It’s simple. I am so glad that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life in such pain and discomfort. It feels so good to have a normal, quiet, happy belly!
