While on a three-week book tour last fall in New England, I spent many meals dodging gluten, often driving away still hungry. Many days I know I ingested gluten from hidden sources or even an unclean grill, due to the effects I experienced soon after; the gluten was taking its toll.
My intestines and joints burning, I stopped at a Whole Foods. I saw some little bottles—Bio-K+, which I’ve seen for years. I grabbed one and pushed my cart forward. I couldn’t wait. I opened up the bottle and took a large gulp of the liquid contents. I felt immediate relief and knew, “Something is right here!” I finished the little bottle and proceeded to tell my husband I wanted to buy more.
Now my husband knows me, knows the years of troubles without the correct diagnosis, and now knows clearly the signs that I’ve ingested some gluten inadvertently. He also knows me well enough that when I say something makes me feel better, he’s 100% behind it. He purchased for me a small box of six, and off we went.
My symptoms usually take three to seven days to get better, which I call my period of “recovery.” By the next day my symptoms were better, and I could actually feel my small intestines inflammation subsiding drastically. I’ve spoken to many celiacs, and it does seem that this three to seven day recovery period is common.
Well, needless to say, I came home and have been using this same product Bio-K+ since my fall 2008 book tour. I have not had a simple adverse effect since taking it. I’ve elected to take the dairy-free Bio-K+, which is soy-based, and I can’t recommend a finer product.
There are 50 billion live and active bacteria per bottle. Fresh-culture Bio-K+ bacteria resist stomach acid and bile salt and works with the intestinal tract to get results—like mine.
I am going to ask them to join me on another upcoming radio show and get some more questions answered.
