For those of you who are considering spending an assload of money on intestiNEW, I have been taking it for about 8 months now. It has not taken away my stench. It has, though, made me feel a lot better physically. A regular L-glutamine product will not do the same thing for you. If you don't buy the intestinew, you should definately think about getting all of the products included. But it will not take away the smell (at least by itself). There is no doubt that my hoopstank is a direct result of a problem in the colon. What that problem is, I don't have the slightest clue. Today is day one taking a similar product to glycolax, Colyte. It has the same major ingredient- polyethelene glycol 3350-so I'll keep you updated on the reults. Also, someone has already mentioned this, but just tell the doc that you are constipated and that you heard/read really good things about glycolax, they shouldn't have a problem with giving the perscription.
One thought on our problem that I've come up with is leaky gut syndrome, but with a twist. See people have said that they've tested positive for leaky gut, but it's usually not even a severe case. I could be off on this, but leaky gut seems like a pretty broad term. What I've been wondering is whether there are different types of leaky gut with varying severities depending on the location. I was thinking maybe our problem could be in the descending colon, if not even the rectum, where the smell would be at its worst. Wouldn't that be a bigger problem than say a leak somewhere in the small intestine or something. I don't know what the hell I'm talking about, really, it's just a thought-you know- one of those ideas that come to you when you're lying in bed at 4 a.m. trying to figure out why the f**k you stink like shit. good luck
