David Willson had struggled for many years with agonising bouts of nausea and stomach upsets brought on by stress from a recent divorce. Then he discovered a handy intestinal adsorbent called Enterosgel that got to work immediately, easing his condition and giving him the confidence to eat out with friends once again, without the worry…
David Willson is 67 and a retired police officer, from Pulborough, West Sussex. He worked for 26 years and gained a BTech in Health Care and a medical and psychiatric HTA. David picks up his story, “I have suffered from stress-related illnesses for years, including problems with my gut. The doctor said that it was IBS. I got nausea, migraines, stomach upsets and acid reflux which usually lasted a few days and then disappeared. It came back again when I had a mini breakdown. I had a lot of stress, resulting from my divorce in 2006 – I lost our cottage in Cornwall after my divorce. I’ve had to endure a lot of negative things in the last three years for which I needed psychiatric assistance. Two and a half years ago I suffered a minor heart attack – the same thing that killed my father – which left me with four stents in my heart.
Working in the police force, I used to be very fit. I didn’t smoke and I ate healthily. I still keep very healthy but stress has had a major impact. I’ve tried all the courses including talking therapies but I was still suffering. I also tried a silica gel, which was good and certainly helped. But then more recently I noticed Enterosgel, an intestinal adsorbent, in my health store in Pulborough and I’m very glad I tried it. It stopped my upset tummy dead in its tracks when I had food poisoning. It does what it says on the box. I was impressed. I took it when I needed it, although you can also take it to help prevent food poisoning or bad reactions to food.
I’ve been using Enterosgel on and off for most of 2016. There are no side-effects at all. It’s not like Imodium, which I don’t like to use, as I don’t think that you should be holding bad things in your body when your body needs to expel them. Enterosgel helps you get rid of them naturally in a gentle way by taking away the bad things as it travels through the body. And it’s even more effective than the silica gel I took.
The other day I had a particularly nasty IBS attack. My stools were nasty and smelly and bad things had been sitting in my gut, but Enterosgel turned this around. It gets rid of stomach cramps and is so soothing. Plus it very quickly gets rid of nausea.
I now feel much more confident when I’m eating out. I know that if I eat something risky, I’ll be fine. I recently recommended Enterosgel to a friend of mine who has non-stop stomach upsets, and it shortened the duration of the illness. She thought it was pretty good stuff and has started buying it regularly.
I’m very happy with it – it’s been doing some great stuff for me. Within 30 minutes I start to feel better. It’s very reassuring to know that I always have Enterosgel in my medicine cabinet.
Enterosgel is available over-the-counter in both convenient sachets and tubes (225 g), priced from £12.80, at Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy, Holland & Barrett, DayLewis and other pharmacies and health stores.
