This product is so working for me. I suffer (don't like using that word) from IBS. My gastro doc gave me an rx. The rx was quite expensive to take twice a day. He suggested more fiber in my diet, but I found that really did not help either. The fibrous food left me feeling quite bloated. When I heard about PGX in a magazine to which I subscribe, I noted the info re fiber. Since taking this, not only has it helped my symptoms tremendously, I have lost a few pounds which is always a plus for females (45 and over anyway). I have also been able to decrease my rx to once a day. I will continue to take this supplement and hope that it will replace my rx soon. Thank you so much.
My teenage daughter was coming home from high school 2-3 times a week with bad headaches concentrating in her upper forehead. After numerous copays to her doctor and a variety of drugs to "help", the headaches continued. One day I went to my vitamin store for my multies and picked up an industry news paper. Inside I saw an advertisement for "Headache Stay Gone". After reading I too had some questions like HOW? and HOW MUCH? so I called. I explained, best I could, my daughters symptoms to the lady on the other end. I decided to take them up on their no cure/no pay warranty. I was informed up front, my daughters symptoms were extreme and a slight increased dose would be probable for best results, at least at first, but most of their customers found it not necessary to continue taking the product after a couple-three months. After the first few weeks the headaches decreased in severity as well as frequency. At that point she went to a reduced dosage and continued a few more weeks. After 3 months her headaches were gone. She finished the bottle, a few more days worth, and I haven't reordered in over 4 years. Just like the lady told me that day I first called. And yes, her headaches are still gone. I've read other reviews and comments concerning the product. I've read numerous comments on other natural "cures" too. It amazes me how many people out there don't like to hear the words cure or cured(you're worth more money to the medical professions if they only "hide" you symptoms). They talk about the "no side effects" claim, and mention children shouldn't take it etc, or possible gastro problems or thisor that, yada yada. Well I ate too much watermelon one time as a child and thought I was dying. One '07 article mentioned, there may be no reports from side affects but there certainly could be. Yes I suppose anything is possible. I suppose one "allergic" to strawberries possibly might have problems eating strawberries. Or someone on oxygen possibly might have breathing problems when smoking. All things are possible! Then why isn't a "cure for headaches" possible, huh?
All I know is we tried numerous chemical "drugs", some to be KNOWN as habit forming (not possibly) with NO results.
The painful look in my daughters eyes would break my heart, because I knew exactly how she felt. I suffered from headaches for over 20 years, also poisoning my body with habit forming chemicals to HIDE the pain and not curing anything. Fortunately mine went away after a non related sinus surgery. Yes, we looked into that too as a possible cause for my daughters headaches. Numerous tests were performed with no answer except drugs to hide the pain.
Looking at the side effects for the alternative "drugs" out there is amazing. Look at Imitrex. I ate those for lunch on my headache days. Worked great, until the next one came along, then the next and the next. Relief but no cure. With Headache Stay Gone, my daughters headaches have, well, stayed gone. That qualifies as a cure in my book. I got on line today to print the info on the website for a nurse friend of mine, who by the way, has convinced herself to live with the pain. I've look into her eyes and "feel her pain". That same feeling I had for so many years, and the same pain I saw in my own daughters eyes. I'm passing the info along to her and have total confidence of the results she will have. By the way, about the side effect issue of herbs and vitamins, listen to the side effect portion of the TV adds of our most popular "drugs" of choice these days. Don't hear much complaining from the medical field about those. Hmmmmmm
Dr.s don't get the frequent flier miles and all those free lunches from the drug reps if you go and get your self "CURED". Oh yes they do get frequent flier miles. Other "rewarding" gifts too. Ever wonder why the latest drug get prescribed to most everyone. Cause it works? HAHA New bennies for prescribing. Read up on how many people DIE each year due to drug side effects or wrong drugs given for a particular diagnosis. THOUSANDS... and nothing... NOTHING is done to the Doctor. Oooops he had a reaction. Yet what happens if someone gets sick or dies from taking herbs or vitamins? Its all to do with MONEY!!!!! they don't want you cured. You are worth a lot more sick.
I pray headache free days for you too, soon! Have a great day. Greg
