If you have "bad guts," it might not be IBS


…Diarrhea. There! HA said it. Anyhow, some people more than hate to say it, they hate to have it after every meal.

…Ever watch "Mystery Diagnosis" on Discovery Health? The show where doctors end up telling the patients everything is all in their heads—then it’s “real”?

…The other night, HA was surfing and ran across a desperate gal who was sick after every meal. She lived in the john almost.

…She finally made an appointment with a gastroenterologist, but didn’t think she could drive two hours “without incident.”

…She found a doc nearer her home and he turned out to have discovered a syndrome in which bile can become too acidic and cause the charming “trottos” after eating.

…His name is Saad F. Habba, MD, and it’s called the Habba Syndrome.

…He studied some Irritable Bowel Syndrome patients who hadn’t improved on antispasmodics or the high fiber they put you on for that. Also, they did not have cramping or pain—just urgency after meals. (For more differences between IBS and Habba, go to http://habbasyndrome.com/_wsn/page3.html.)

…He tested them and ruled out IBS. He prescribed low doses of cholestyramine, a cholesterol-lowering drug often prescribed if people get diarrhea after having their gallbladders removed.

…On the TV show, the woman was better the next day! The patients in his study experienced almost immediate relief, too.

…For more info, go to http://www.habbasyndrome.com/. HA noted that he does not treat for this immediately—and requires batteries of tests to rule out other conditions.

I went to this Doctor Habba and after telling me he would get to the bottom of my problem ran some test, left me 6,000 dollars in bills and hasn't helped me find out whats causing my problem.He got his money and i'm still doubling over in pain! Like most doctors he doesn't know his ass fromm a hole in the ground.

I, too, saw the Mystery Diagnosis and identified myself quickly...I have seen doctor after doctor yet to no avail...I did go to a gastric doctor and asked him to prescribe the cholestyramine...it is a powder...and works remarkably well for me...as long as I take it faithfully every day...I can not miss a day. I can now work, whereas before the medicine...it had affected my ability to work..afterall how can you when you spend half the day in the bathroom....thank you doctor for pinpointing this ridiculous syndrome...a believer

Remembeг, you can't change the waƴ others act, but you can change the way you respond verbally and the way
you handle things. In a leadership arena, such as an emergency situatiߋn, where someone
must suгely take charge, the person of integrity will rise to the occasіߋn and will quiϲkly
garner the respect of those aгound heг, allowinǥ for her leadership to take over.
In my line of work, I have no lack of clients аnd
students seeking to manifest more abundance in theіr lіves.
