It is not uncommon for me to prescribe a certain supplement or remedy for a patient’s ailment and have they return with remarkable stories of how it helped with a slew of other symptoms.
One such case is that of a middle age woman I saw who was having some digestive problems. I suspected that she had an imbalance in her intestinal micro flora and prescribed the probiotic Three Lac. Well a month later she returned saying that it was a cure-all. Her weight started to immediately come off – within 3 weeks she had lost 7 lbs. Her hip pain which she described as being on fire and prevented her from walking in the evening went away. And of course her bowels became more regular and the bloating went down.
Although I use Three Lac quit often it is not a cure all – unfortunately.
