Member’s Mark 4XProbiotics Work for Me! #DigestiveHealth #CBias

About a week and a half ago, I posted about my opportunity to try Member’s Mark 4X Probiotics (only available at Sam’s Club).  You can read about My Journey to Normal if you’re interested to get the background to this post and more product specific information.  I was skeptical.  Of course I was!  I have struggled with IBS for 22 years. 

Simply put, I poop too much. There, I said it.  That’s all it is!  Well, that and a bunch of stomach cramping and bloating. I have a system that does not like to eat.  Every time I eat, my body rejects it.  It is a bother.  We pick and choose where we can go out to eat (on the rare occasion that we do).  We stay close to home because of my “issues”.  The long and short of it is that I cannot do anything in the eating arena unless I first take some sort of anti-diarrhea medication.  And even then, it’s a hit or miss kind of thing.  In a way, this condition rules my life!  
Can you imagine my dilemma?  For years I’ve worried about eating out in public.  For years, I’ve been worried about going out in public!  For years, I’ve known the route to every public rest room (and I hate public rest rooms).  But now?  After only a week and half?  I ate at a  Mexican restaurant with my family and made it home, ten miles on a bicycle I might add.  I’ve gone to the pool with my family and not had to run home even once.  I played at the park with the kids and never once had to make them stop playing to follow me into the bathroom!  These are milestones!  One and a half weeks!  I’m sold!
I have been surprised in a very pleasant way.  I have not been “pooping” my life away!  You might think this is in my mind.  I might think the same thing if I was you, but remember, I was skeptical.  I have tried everything.  I mean EVERYTHING and this truly seems to be working!  I haven’t changed my diet, other than the fact that I have actually been eating.  I know, you aren’t impressed with that but let me explain.  I am a 5’2″ 95 pound woman (yes, 98 pound weaklings even laugh at me).  I am not thin, I am skinny!  I have always wanted to gain at least a little weight and I’m hopeful that I will be able to do just that now!  You see, eating and retaining food is what causes weight gain, and I’ve never been afforded either luxury.
Is this the miracle cure for IBS?  How do I know?  I’m not a doctor nor do I play one on TV but I like what I’ve seen.  Seriously, this has been life changing for me!  My first glimmer of hope in years!  
Do I recommend this product?  You bet your sweet non-diarrhea butt I do!  If this keeps up, I am a lifer!

And just as information, even if you don’t have severe stomach issues (or e-gads, the opposite of my issues), it can still do good things.  I got a 3 month supply ($28.88 at Sam’s Club).  It came in 2 boxes, each with a 6 week supply, so I asked my husband if he’d like to try them out as well.  We’ve both been taking them.  He doesn’t have major issues, but he has noticed that he is “normal” now.  He hasn’t seen the miraculous results I have, but he has less gas (his gas was a real problem for me!).  And he feels good!

Should I be uncomfortable talking about this?  Probably so but I’m elated!  There are plenty of us out there you know!  You don’t have to be shy.  Go visit Digestive Health For Me and join their forum, or just read the stories.  You’re not alone!

If you deal with stomach issues at all, I challenge you to try this product!  I hope that you too are pleasantly surprised!  And I’d love to hear what you think!
