I’ve been on a free-for-all diet for the past 6 weeks or so and I must say, I feel happier emotionally but I won’t lie, physically, I’ve felt better.
I have not worked-out since early June. It’s winter and I just do not have the motivation. I’ve also been back in the swing of work and for now, I’m happy writing and achieving goals there. Mentally though, I am preparing to return to a regular fitness routine on September 1st.
Considering all of this, my tummy issues have mostly disappeared. The severe, daily bloating has stopped and I am convinced Inner Health is the reason.
Inner Health is a pro-biotic capsule that contains 25 billion good bacteria per supplement. Any largeness to my tummy is now fat. Plain and simple. And a bit disappointing.
I used to take IH years ago and I don’t know why I stopped or had not tried it earlier this year when I was having so many stomach issues. Daily acidophilus yogurt is not enough but delicious so I still love to eat it.
Another thing that has been working for me it stepping away from the wheat. I’m not banning it anymore but when I begin to feel crappy, I reduce my wheat intake considerably.
I have also started to take a herbal laxative. It comes in the form of tea and it is easy to drink. The downside of this of course is the stomach cramps and need to be near a toilet. It doesn’t last long and it generally takes 10-12 hours to kick in so it’s all about getting the timing right.
Here’s what I believe is working for me to reduce bloating:
- Daily Inner Health Plus Dairy Free
- Starting my day with hot lemon and water (before anything else is consumed)
- Reducing wheat
- Drinking herbal laxative tea – once or twice a week
I reckon once I return to my fitness routine, I will feel pretty darn good. And hopefully look like this again.
