I have had a wide variety of gastric issues for years and as a result, was used to avoiding many of the foods and beverages that other people took for granted. If it was spicy, fried, alcoholic or much other than fresh fruit, vegetables or bread, there was an excellent possibility that it would be challenging for me to digest. Over the years, it became even more of a problem and there were many limitations as to what I could enjoy. Sometimes, it seemed as if even the most natural, unseasoned or healthy items made me nauseated, gassy or gave me some pretty severe stomach pain, regardless of what medications I took and how incredibly careful I thought I was being.
Even when I was doing exactly what the directions on the bottle or my physicians told me to do; all of my symptoms lingered and got worse over time. I took a ton of both over-the-counter and prescription medications. I spent a lot of money for a lot of years treating my discomfort without actually addressing the underlying problem. However, it got much worse, when I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer and found out the real reason that I had been suffering for as long and as much as I had.
I was unpleasantly surprised to learn that the cause of my ulcer was, to some extent, being dismissed by many medical professionals as almost commonplace. Specifically, I and many other seemingly healthy people had been infected at some point by a type of bacteria known as h. pylori that lives almost exclusively in the stomach. Until the early 1980’s, doctors believed that bacteria was not capable of surviving the acids found in the stomach. Even if you have heard of it, you may not know that it is contagious and can spread through saliva. That means that a kiss from a date a few years ago that you barely remember could give you h. pylori and only now is it rearing its ugly head. It is almost important to note that h.plylori is very common and may not cause any obvious symptoms in the people it has infected for years after exposure.
Unfortunately, now it is known to be a cause of stomach and duodenal ulcers. In addition, it has been associated with stomach cancer and it seems as if some doctors are still not taking it seriously, even after it has been established that it is not unusual for h. pylori to be resistant to antibiotics. That means that there are an awful lot of people like myself, who spent years thinking they had a “sensitive stomach” but in reality they had bacteria invading their stomach.
It is incredibly disgusting, when you also realize that the antibiotics that are given out may not even be able to address the problem at all and you are still in danger of having an adverse reaction from the antibiotics. It is an awful, wretched problem and I, personally, received several prescriptions from my doctor before I started looking into other options. I was given two doses of both clarithromycin and amoxicillin, combined with an acid reducer.
When those two doses did not work, the doctor was more than willing to send me home with another antibiotic known as metronidazole and a proton pump inhibitor. It is also a little scary to realize that if you are one of the lucky people who are allergic to penicillin, you would skip straight over the first group and go to something stronger. Personally, I spent a lot of money treating my stomach problems, on the advice of several doctors, for most of my life and then I discovered that I had ulcers anyway.
By this point, I had just about enough of traditional medicine and doctors, so I started looking for other options. My first choice was something natural that had been proven. That meant that I was more than a little intrigued by broccoli, which has been shown in a Japanese study to be successful at treating h. pylori. The problem was that I wanted my bacteria gone as soon as possible, not slowly over time and broccoli was. It was not a houseguest that had overstayed their welcome, it was a type of bacteria that was eating away at my stomach and increasing the possibility of my developing cancer at some point in the future.
So, when it became obvious that broccoli was not going to be the right choice for what I needed, I decided that perhaps I could spend a bit more money on something that would get me the results that I wanted. After all, I had never heard of anyone establishing a dollar value for being able to keep your stomach, but I was pretty sure that it was worth a pretty penny to be able to keep it. I work in a professional environment and it was becoming a little embarrassing to be known as the woman with all of the medical problems, so the next choice was a rather costly combination of garlic and a very complex multi-vitamin that was supposed to heal the body naturally. That also did not fully address the problem and I was nearly at my wit’s end when someone at work discreetly pulled me outside to tell me about Canxida Restore.
It was different because of solely attacking the problem or gently coaxing it to leave in gentle and respectful ways. Instead, it included both enzymes and probiotics that healed the problem in varying ways. It was not an antibiotic that you could be allergic to or that the bacteria could become resistant to, it supported my overall digestive health in a positive way. Even better, it did so without making me violently ill or unable to leave the bathroom for long periods of time.
It has taken time for my stomach to heal from the damage it sustained, but without Canxida Restore, I would never have been able to heal the damage. Just as you cannot expect a broken leg to heal if you do not cast or immobilize it and refrain from putting weight on it, I truly believe that my stomach would never have been able to get better without this product to treat the underlying problem. Although I never wanted to be the person at work with health problems, I am very grateful that office gossip and a discreet co-worker brought me the solution I needed when doctors and even my own research failed.
