Probiotics are dietary supplements which contain beneficial or friendly bacteria or yeasts which may strengthen or exert health benefits to the body’s natural digestive system. Probiotics offer a way to restore the natural balance of your digestive system especially if you suffer from anyone of constipation, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, urgency or gas and bloating. Numerous research studies have shown benefits for sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis). Probiotics which contain the strain bifidobacterium infantis 35624 have been shown to relieve abdominal pain, bloating, urgency, constipation or diarrhea.
NAMI has recently started endorsing the Partnership
for Prescription Assistance , a new program that seeks to boost
enrollment in existing Patient Assistance Programs by helping consumers
identify and apply for programs for which they may be eligible. This
may be a good place to start if you are unfamiliar with Assistance
Programs that might work for you - however, we don't yet know how
successful the Partnership is at enrolling people in good programs,
or how much they may charge for their service. If anyone has experiences
to share about the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (good or
bad), please email the administration at: szwebmaster@.

After having diverticulitis three times and being referred to a surgeon (which I refused) I decided to take my digestive health into my own hands. I’ve been taking HCI and Super Enzymes along with probiotics for years and haven’t had diverticulitis since. I also avoid grains (gave up cereal …a staple in my diet for many years) especially any with gluten. When I do eat gluten/grains I pay for it. I was born with eczema and have had increasing allergic reactions as I’ve aged. I’m positive that allergy meds are not helpful in the battle to balance out digestive issues.
