Tips for Individuals with Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Fruit-Eze™ Regularity Blend has helped individuals suffering from the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome to normalize bowel function and achieve regularity.
Individuals with I.B.S. (adults & children)
Individuals with I.B.S. can follow the Basic Using Fruit-Eze™ Recommendations. In addition, these tips may be helpful:
- 1. Split the Servings: Servings may be taken as one tablespoon in the morning and one in the afternoon or evening (twice per day). Fruit-Eze™ fruit blend may be eaten by itself, or on toast, in oatmeal, applesauce, etc. > Serving Ideas
- 2. Toilet Daily: As part of re-educating the bowel, toilet everyday about 45 minutes after each meal even if there is no urge to move the bowel or no actual bowel movement occurs. Sit on the toilet for about 5-10 minutes. Relax, do not strain. Using the palm, gently massage the abdomen in a clockwise direction to stimulate bowel activity.
- 3. Observe Changes & Adjust Servings: Monitor changes in stool quality. And, remember the two basic recommendations:
If stool is too hard or too infrequent, take a little more Fruit-Eze™.
If stool is too soft or too frequent, use a little less Fruit-Eze™.
Note: Bowel activity is unique. For some individuals, stools may become too firm if they take too much Fruit-Eze™ fruit blend. If this occurs, experiment by decreasing the serving by one tablespoon until a maintenance portion of one tablespoon per day is achieved.
- 4. Take Daily Servings Consistently: Consistency is the key. Remember to take the servings of Fruit-Eze™ Regularity Blend every day. For some individuals, daily bowel movements may occur. However, it is considered normal to experience 3 or more stools per week. Depending on individual bowel health, it may take from six weeks to several months to retrain the bowel to the maintenance level of one tablespoon per day, which will have the bowel moving once every day or two on the average.
