One out of five people has symptoms related to irritable bowel syndrome. That’s really a lot of people with gut irritation.
Long term relief has been shown with peppermint oil supplements.
Enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules taken daily for one month helped nearly 80 percent of the subjects reported relief from severe abdominal pain, abdominal distension, and reduction of gas.
For centuries, healers have used peppermint oil to curb nausea, gas, and other digestive problems. Modern research shows that it kills bacteria and relaxes muscles in the digestive tract.
Peppermint oil may cause heartburn in some patients, but that’s usually not a problem with coated capsules.
Intesol from Metagenics provides comforting relief of GI disturbances. I recommend one softgel three times daily before meals.

Gluten is a toxin to some people, and they feel better after a few months of going gluten free. If you are sensitive, gluten can raise your TPO antibodies (causing Hashimotos thyroid disease). Gluten is basically a food additive, and most people associate gluten with Celiac disease (an autoimmune condition) and with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or Crohn’s, colitis and other digestive disorders.
Gluten doesn’t have to upset your stomach, sometimes it just damages your brain and central nervous system and you have no GI symptoms at all. Other common symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity:
Depression. Brain fog – it can cause cerebral hypoperfusion (lowered blood flow to the brain). Confusion. Lethargy. Mood problems. Some people that think they have neuropathies related to multiple sclerosis or Parkinsons, or ALS, and all these may actually be gluten intolerance. Weight gain. Gas. Bloating. Lack of energy. Headaches.
Going gluten-free can cure a person of many problems. I expect you to do well as long as you use the UltraInflamX 360 & LactoFlamX with the food plan I layed out. Don’t forget to order UltraInflamX 360 & LactoFlamX from www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
Most people don’t know they have Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance. Most practitioners overlook this disorder that causes damage to the small intestine when gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, is eaten.
On top of infertility, other gynecological and obstetrical problems may also be more common, including miscarriages and preterm births. For men, problems can include abnormal sperm — such as lower sperm numbers, altered shape, and reduced function. Men with untreated celiac disease may also have lower testosterone levels.
The good news is that with proper treatment with a gluten-free diet and correction of nutritional deficiencies, the prognosis for future pregnancies is much improved.
What is Celiac Disease?
Most of my patients know the positive effects on digestion from using probiotic supplements. Most people need to take probiotic supplements after using antibiotics. This will ensure that the good intestinal flora bacteria killed by the antibiotic use gets replenished.
Even many MD’s are recommending probiotics during and after antibiotic therapy. I use probiotics to help build the immune system, and induce an “immunosurveillance” if you will. Probiotics are also helpful to address abdominal discomfort, bloating and cramping. Allergies that affect the skin such as eczema, are helped by strains of probiotics. All probiotics are not created equal. I can only recommend UltraFlora Plus DF (dairy free) by Metagenics or Probio Defense by Xymogen as two of the best and most reliable.
