Sue: IBS-C

Now back at high school

Sue is a student who suddenly started to suffer from intense abdominal pain and cramps towards the end of 2016. This was the beginning of a long and painful journey towards getting the diagnosis of IBS-C (constipation). During the 18 month long journey, Sue met with several doctors and other healthcare professionals. They provided her with various options to help manage her symptoms, but none of them made her feel better. Some even made her situation worse.

Sue said, “For months I had real difficulty getting out of bed in the morning due to frequent episodes of abdominal pain, cramps and nausea, which resulted in not attending school 8 out of 10 days.”

Sue told us, “I used to have incomplete bowel movements and a persistent feeling of being constipated. Fibers did not relieve those symptoms.” Having minimal success with other remedies, Sue began her journey with Holigos™. “Six months ago I started taking Holigos™ and after only 2 weeks I noticed a positive difference,” Sue said.

“Things are a lot more normal today and my bowel movements are regular and complete,” Sue told us. “I still experience episodes of abdominal pain, but they are less frequent and less painful." Once, Sue forgot to bring her Holigos™ with her on vacation and she experienced a considerable relapse of her symptoms – thankfully it only took a few days after she came home to get back to the “new” normal. She is now careful not to forget to bring her Holigos™ on her trips. Sue believes that Holigos™ has been one of the contributors to her improvement.

Since the Spring, Sue has been able to attend school consistently and said, “I have more energy and as a result I am happier and optimistic about the day I have ahead of me.” That’s what we call Human-Natural Living.

Peter: Pain & Diarrhea



Managing his own carpentry business

For many years, Peter has suffered from gastrointestinal issues, such as pain and severe diarrhea. His abdominal pain and severe diarrhea have been constant in his life resulting in as many as 8 trips to the bathroom per day.

“As you can imagine, my energy level wasn’t very high and I couldn’t really go anywhere because I always had to stay close to a toilet,” Peter said. Challenging for a man who runs his own small carpentry business with four employees.

“I tried whatever I could find in terms of nutritional supplements for my digestive issues and energy drinks to help with my lack of energy, but none of them had a lasting effect,” Peter explained.

Peter was introduced to Holigos™ by a friend. After taking 1 daily dose of Holigos™ dissolved in water every morning for about a week, he noticed that his bowel movements became more regular and had fewer trips to the bathroom.

Peter has been taking Holigos™ for about a year now and it continues to work for him. “One time I ran out of product for three days and I felt the more severe diarrhea attacks coming back,” Peter recalled. He realized then that his digestive system was truly benefiting from taking Holigos™ every day.

“My digestive system just feels more natural. I’m able to manage the diarrhea attacks and since I no longer have to stay close to the toilet all the time, I can participate in activities further away from home. I have taken up horseback riding again with three friends and I go biking. Life is just more fun,” Peter concluded.

Stories like Peter’s is what we call Human-Natural Living.

Jennifer: IBS-D

Focus outward rather than inward

Jennifer has not only been diagnosed with IBS-D (diarrhea), but also suffers from celiac disease, a long-term autoimmune disorder that forces her to stay on a strict lifelong gluten-free diet. IBS-D is nothing new to Jennifer as it seems to run in her family.  Both her mom and aunt have suffered from the same condition.

Jennifer said, “It has been a very long and cumbersome journey with repeated doctors visits, and it sometimes still is.” Jennifer added, “I have become used to avoiding many different types of food that may trigger an outburst.”

“Six months ago I discovered Holigos from a Facebook group that I am part of,” Jennifer explained. “After using Holigos™ for 3 weeks, I felt a significant difference. In fact, it is like a miracle!” She added that she can still feel unsettled at times, but “it has somehow calmed down a great deal.” 

“Taking Holigos™ helps me feel like a normal person. I can carry on with my life and I can focus outward instead of being focused inward all the time. This of course makes me feel a lot better, more energized and I even feel stronger. In fact, there are some foods I previously avoided that I can now enjoy, like peppers.”

Jennifer works in the travel industry with frequent trips out of the office. Previously, she always had to map out where the bathrooms were located and “hoped for a good day.” Holigos™ has helped Jennifer avoid too much hassle in her work life. That’s what we call Human-Natural Living.
