How To Talk About THAT Gastro Disorder Without Shame (Hint: It’s IBS)

October 17, 2017

IBS is short for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is a type of gastrointestinal disorder characterized by symptoms including diarrhea, constipation, alternating diarrhea and constipation, abdominal pain, abnormal bowel habits, flatulence and gas, bloating and cramping. Sounds fun right? Well guess what? It’s estimated that 1 in 5 Americans and up to 25% of the world’s population has IBS. In spite of these staggering statistics, medical doctors struggle to find a solution. This serious, and sometimes debilitating disorder negatively impacts so many lives. When I have heard about it from others, I feel so sick for those who suffer. It sounds debilitating. So, the good news is, it no longer has to.

IBS Formula is a dietary supplement that is designed to provide totally natural relief from the various symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.  If you have IBS, you’ve probably gotten little or no relief from costly doctor’s visits, prescription drugs with terrible side effects, probiotics, or over-the-counter one-ingredient treatments like peppermint gels and peppermint capsules.

The magic of IBS Formula is in the blend. This supplement combines exciting, antioxidant rich super-foods and clinically proven digestive remedies, to balance the flora within the digestive tract and help with the abnormal intestinal spasms that go along with an irritable bowel. The holistic herbs and plant-based ingredients aid in digestion, detoxify the body, remedy and lubricate the intestines, productively eliminate waste and ease gut discomfort. This proprietary blend is the ideal combination to provide relief for irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.

Several clinical trials and studies have proven that the natural ingredients in IBS Formula do provide relief for IBS. Additionally, these ingredients can also provide many other important health benefits in addition to just treating IBS when taken daily.

These non-prescription, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free capsules contain:

Psyllium – a soluble fiber, anti gas, anti bloating
Acai – antioxidants and omega fatty acids, fiber
Slippery Elm – coats & soothes digestive tract
Aloe – cleanses, detoxes & heals intestinal tract
Chlorella – energizing superfood, detoxification
Walnut Hulls – antidiarrheal, antifungal, antiviral
Ginger – improves digestion, anti inflammatory
Inulin – prebiotic, becomes healthy micro flora
Hyssop Leaf – anti flatulence, boost absorption
Papaya papain – enzyme metabolizes protein
Lycopene a powerful all natural antioxidant

The founders of IBS Formula had previously suffered from IBS themselves. After fixing their own digestive issues, it was their goal to share their discoveries with a remedy that would balance the intestines and help people live IBS free. According to their customers, they did just that! Based on Amazon Reviews more than 4 out of 5 people report strong relief.

Here are a few Amazon customer reviews:

Review #1:

I waited until I used IBS Formula for 7 days before writing this review. I’m very pleased to report that it exceeded my expectations. It fixed all my irregularity & ‘plumbing’ issues which is great: it does what it says it will do. This product has integrity with the ingredients. What I did not expect was that it would wipe out the onset of a cold. BOOM! I feel healthier and l’m not worried about getting sick during flu season with this formula. I will be purchasing every month. It’s made a significant improvement in my well-being and it’s a small investment to make for good health.

Review #2:

This is the only product I have found that actually gave me relief from the pain and cramping of IBS. I have had several diagnoses running the gambit of intestinal disorders but no relief. This product works, and believe me I have tried them all.

Review #3:

I, too, waited for a length of time (approximately 2 weeks +) before writing this review. All the years I have struggled with an issue of embarrassing diarrhea, never knowing where/when it might be an issue. The last episode I had was so devastating that I had decided to just quit eating everything except some oatmeal, chicken, and green beans etc. I HAD to find the “trigger” foods that were causing my problems. I was also at the point of deciding to pursue a medical appointment with a gastroenterologist and go through ALL the nasty tests they would order. In the pursuit of this info, somehow this advertisement crossed my path and I ordered. I have NOT had any more incidents since I started using it. I am SO happy! Don’t be afraid to try this formula. If it doesn’t work for you, THEN you can try the doctor/testing route. In the meantime, this just MIGHT BE your simple fix!

IBS Formula is made in the USA in an FDA registered facility and certified by the Natural Products Association. A bottle includes a 1-month supply and totals 60 capsules that provide real relief for less than $1/day

If you spent the time and trouble to buy a 1-month supply of each of these individual supplements, it would cost you more than $150/month.

The IBS Formula founders did the work on themselves, and are now passing along their amazing IBS treatment for the low price of $24.95 and always free US Shipping.

Take the step to tackle your IBS now and learn more now by looking into this brand. 

FUSION HEALING – Iris Tranz: The Healing Work You Must Do Now

October 8, 2017

I had heard about Fusion Healing  for months from my very trusted friends. I could not wait to get in there. Where is there? In the healing hands, heart and soul of Iris Tranz. As we transition into Fall, now is the perfect time for a reset, a cleanse, and not just with foods, but on a deeper level.
Ok, here’s the thing, her work is almost too experiential to explain. Let’s just say she’s other-worldly. Next level. I can only offer, come in with an open mind, heart and soul and you will go on a deep journey. Iris heals from deep within, so deep, that as she releases blocked energy pathways in your body, she uses her own body, more specifically, sound, to let it go. She is like a conduit, releasing the stagnant energy from you, in the form of a deep, resonant belch from her. I felt incredible working with her. Iris tapped into deep emotional stuff. I loved her.
Below, please read more about her! On top of this, she is just so wonderful and cool. And on a personal level, she exudes this  best friend vibe, that I simply wanted to be around her – well – forever.
