Heads up guys and gals!
I went to see my MD about my cheesy leakage, and he recommended I go see my GI doc. I said no chance, I don't like anyone there, and they have no time to talk to me when I do go, so forget it. So, he sent me back to the surgeon that did my fissurectomy. Now this is one really great doctor. He has time to talk and is really concerned about my health and what can help me.
Anyway, while I was talking to him about all my problems, he asked me if I had ever tried a Chinese Herbalist. Wow! So, I said no, but what could he tell me about it. He said that one of his doc friends had pointed out the article in the November 11 JAMA that describes a scientific test of CHM on IBS sufferers. Cool, says I, but it's only an excerpt. NO says he, this is a real article, and lists the herbs used. Wow again! Not only that, but his son is best friends with the son of a Chinese Herbalist! Turns out that he has sent a copy of the article to this guy, and asked for a source for product!
He has agreed to notify me when hears back.
(OK, I'll stop using exclamation points, It's starting to lose it's effect )
He also had his nurse give me a copy of the article. I just got home from a ride north to help an acquaintance work on his bike, so I haven't had a chance to read it yet. The "Standard Formula" (Capsule ingredients) is detailed in a chart, but I don't think it's worth posting, as this is a standard formula, and I doubt you can get these things (20 different ingredients with wierd names like Huo Xiang, Pao Jiang, and Zhi Gan Cao) separately.
So, as soon as I find out any more, I'll let you guys and gals know.
