    I have been taking lanzoprozole for stomach acid reflux for 15 yrs, it kills off a lot of good bacteria in the gut and is now causing my digestive system to run very slowly, im sufering a lot of discomfort and digestive spasms which make me go slightly dizzy and lose energy. Is there any advice you could give me please? My doctor says im just suffering from anxiety, i dont doubt for a second im suffering from anxiety but i feel it has been brought on by my gut problems and im desperate for help as this is completly taking over and ruining my life. Many thanks. Tyrone.

    • Hi Tyrone,
      I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your digestive system. Unfortunately what you re experiencing is very common with people who are taking prescription or OTC acid reflux medications. I would suggest that you look for a doctor who is open to alternative medicine/natural remedies as I believe that using the right probiotic and prebiotic supplements will help relieve your digestive problems. There are also effective natural remedies for anxiety you can take advantage of.

  2. I had a test at the hospital that showed I had a slow digestive symptom. It’s painful the gas, bloating and constipation. Can you please tell me some suggestions on what to do about it? I have an appt. with my GI Dr. in a couple weeks. I pray there is hope out there. Right now he has me on a low fat, low fiber diet which is hard to find out what I can eat. Thanks

    • Hi Sharon,
      I am sorry to hear that you have a slow digestive system, which is causing you painful gas, bloating and constipation. I am not a medical doctor, but I can only advice you from my own experience. I used to suffer from slow digestive system. However, changing my diet really helped me a lot. I drastically reduced my sugar intake. I also stayed away from fatty foods. Then added more fiber to my diet. I also took and still take probiotic and prebiotic supplements. I like Kiwi-klenz prebiotic supplement because it contains both soluble and insoluble fibers, digestive enzymes and phenols, which all work together to help boost the digestive system.

      There are also several other natural digestive aids that can help balance your digestive system. You just need to find one that really works for you as what works for one person may not necessarily work for another.

      Hope you find this helpful. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

  3. Hi Sharon, I just found your site when seeking advise for bloating and slow digestion, I am interested in the products you mention but the Avita one seems like it is purchased outside the US which I am not comfortable with. I also read your comments on the Kiwi klenz. Where do you purchase these items in the US? Looks like the Xtend products are purchased in the US and I may be interested in that one but the Avita one that has a probiotic and Fiber seems intesting also but I cant seem to find a US ship address,. Was wondering if you had used the Avita product at all and any comments on that. Thanks!

    • Hi Diane,
      I understand your reservation about buying from a non US company. However, I have used the Avita probiotics and find it very helpful. Xtendlife Kiwi- Klenz is also very good and you can buy that on Amazon if you so wish. But I personally buy Xtendlife products via their official website.

      I hope my response helps.

    Dear Carol Dike,
    My bowel movements have slowed down so much that I am not feeling well. I have never been like this before. It is as if every is going at a snails pace. I do have diabetes. I used to have a movement everyday and some times 2 or 3 times a day. What can I use to move things along?

  5. Hi Al,
    I am really sorry to hear that your bowel movement is going at a snail pace. I would recommend that you try Kiwi Klenz by Xtendlife. However, I advise that you check with your doctor first if you have any doubts at all about its safety.
