I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis a few months before my 22nd birthday. I tried all kinds of medications - Asacol, cortisone, Colazal, and Canasa. The cort did nothing, Asacol worked at first (when my disease was at it's mildest), and Colazal only worked somewhat if I used it in conjunction with Canasa. I basically experienced a continuous flareup that vascillated between liveable, bad, and really bad for about two years. My BMs never went back to what they were before I was diagnosed and I was starting to get desperate. Hence my purchase of VSL#3.

I was really optimistic and hopeful that VSL#3 would work, mostly because of the events that preceded my diagnosis. Before I ever developed UC symptoms, I was extremely prone to infections and as a result, I took high doses of strong (and now we know sometimes dangerous) antibiotics several times a year. This went on for about two years. At the end of that period, I mysteriously stopped getting infections but developed a lack of fine motor control in both of my hands. At first I was told it was carpal tunnel, but a nerve study showed that this was an incorrect diagnosis and my orthopaedic doctor basically threw his hands up in the air and sent me on my way. About a year after that, I developed colitis, and with that came a whole host of symptoms that my gastroenterologist couldn't/didn't care to explain. I had joint pain; extreme swelling of the Achilles that would switch sides; swelling in my knees, elbow, finger, and jaw joints; swelling and painful bumps on the bottoms of my feet. It got to the point where I couldn't walk some days.

Now I don't want to say that VSL is a miracle drug. I'm no doctor, but I am a biologist and I do understand how the body works.

I am posting this on a few VSL #3 Amazon listings not to cross-pollinate my own posting or promote the product beyond my own personal experience, but in hopes of saving people time and money, and possibly help someone suffering from GI issues. VSL #3 is very different than other probiotics and hence this will be very long because there is simply more to it.

As someone with Crohn’s, and with a brother with severe Crohn’s and a mother with UC, I can identify with how debilitating, dehumanizing, and sickening IBD is. I can relate to planning your whole life based on strategic mapping of bathrooms, and hating that you define yourself by your condition, and that sometimes you are so sick that quality of life is zero, you contemplate the value of your existence, and you would do damned near anything to stop the suffering. I know the frustration of continual colonoscopies, medications with damning side effects with little gain, and relapsing conditions that flare at the worst possible times. I’ve been there with the psychological toll of having a condition that makes living a ‘normal’ life difficult. For those without IBS/IBD, give thanks…and please give those with such conditions the understanding and empathy that would allow logical/medical explanation of why someone with such conditions may behave in a way that seems unusual. For example, someone with IBD who tells you they cannot go out or abruptly cancels plans is not necessarily trying to be unfriendly/anti-social, but may be limited in the activities in which they can do, especially during flares.

Considering VSL #3? Do you have gastrointestinal problems or other major health issues? If not, it is probably NOT the probiotic for you.

This product is pricey, but totally worth it. I was suffering with some bad digestive problems, partially brought on by weakening digestion, antibiotics, etc. Having suffered greatly from candida- and digestion-related chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms at certain previous points in my life, I knew what to do. I tried some refrigerated capsule probiotics from the health food store, which looked quite powerful (& also somewhat expensive). While somewhat effective, they had nowhere near the effect of VSL3, which is what my doctor recommended. After the second dose, I could already tell the difference. I was going from being afraid to eat (EVERYTHING made me feel sick an hour after I ate it), & not wanting to get out of bed in the morning (I work full time) to having more energy than before, within 2 weeks. If you have similar problems, I highly recommend this product, as well as digestive enzymes (several good brands are available from health food stores & maybe from Amazon), a fiber product made from psyllium seeds (Konsyl is a good one, available from most pharmacies over the counter), certain enzyme-containing foods that stimulate digestion, such as peppermint, ginger, pineapple, etc. & PLENTY of fresh vegetables & fruits, preferably organic and locally grown. Also REDUCE your sugar intake greatly, eliminate refined/processed starches, eliminate or greatly reduce red meat, eat meals during the day & no later than 7:00 since your enzymatic juices start declining later in the evening, esp. if you are over 40. I also am just eating LESS, eating only when hungry & foregoing that second portion. I don't get as sleepy during the day, so I have been able to cut my overreliance on caffeine to keep myself going; too much caffeine can really be a gut irritant as well.Read more ›
