Citrucel cured my IBS?
I am 27 and I've had IBS issues ever since I can remember. I remember feeling the effects when I was in junior high which is when I think it started. So I have suffered for years. And my IBS has affected all aspects of my life. I am a student online because it became impossible to attend classes and it's even affected my work. I work shorter shifts daily. It's even affected my mood and my social life. I've used my IBS as an excuse. But this all changed about a week ago. My mom has been taking a fiber supplement, Citrucel, for years. She's begged me to take it for years but I've brushed it off. Finally, a week ago I got so fed up with my IBS and feeling uncomfortable day after day. So I purchased a 30 oz bottle of the citrucel powder. You mix it with water and it thickens a bit and you drink it and it tastes good. After I took it the first time I immediately noticed a change in how I felt. After I ate food, I would usually hear and feel my stomach go crazy and I would sometimes immediately have to go to the bathroom after a meal. But after taking the citrucel, I didn't feel that. I felt...normal. I didn't feel my stomach go crazy nor did I hear the stomach noises that usually accompany a meal. I was on cloud 9. I felt regular. Ever since I've been taking citrucel I've felt nearly 100% cured of my IBS. I don't get crazy diarhhea. My poops are solid and most importantly my stomach feels amazing. Throughout the day I no longer have to worry that my stomach is being too loud or feel uncomfortable! And all thanks to Citrucel. I'm not sure if this will work for everyone but I had IBS pretty bad so I'm sure it will help a lot of people. They also have citrucel pills if you prefer taking it that way. I take it twice a day with 8 oz glass of water but you can take it up to 3 times a day. It has been my saving grace. Please give it a try and let me know if it worked for you.
Do you live with any sleep disorders (eg. insomnia, RLS, sleep apnea) in addition to IBS?
