    Diverticulitis. I had it myself, while insured. And it took them two months of testing to  figure out that is what I had. Then I got told the problem would be fixed by my undergoing surgery in which they would scrape out the diverticuli. But I was so weak from not having eaten well for ten weeks, and being totally anemic, so the operation was scheduled some 90 days later, while I built up my strength.

    During that time, I found out that $ 14 worth of acidophilous could possibly  put my digestive tract back in the pink. Having nothing to lose, I decided to do the acidophilous. Bought a bottle of the Jarrow brand; took a double dose of it, and wham - my health returned. Within three days, i felt better than I had in years. I did take it for the next six months, gradually going on the dosage the bottle suggested. In two weeks, i couldn't even remember that I had been ill. I went in to see the  doctor, and had him nix the surgery. Although he seemed pleased with my recovery, he didn't seem the least bit interested in the remedy though.

    Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.

      I went to see my GP a few days after being on antibiotics and that's what she told me to do as well. Take probiotics/acidphilous and a fiber supplement every day! So far so good and it's been a couple of years!

      Dr's are wonderful and horrible all wrapped up in one little white jacketed package!  lol

      Corporations before people.... it's the American way!
