Being sick is not fun at all. I rarely get sick, but recently I had a terrible sore throat that I could not shake. I tried natural remedies for many days, and it seemed like it was getting better. It would intensify at night with a vengeance. If I have a sore throat, it usually goes away within three of four days, but on the eighth day of having this one I finally went to my doctor. I was told it may be viral, and I was prescribed antibiotics. I wanted to scream! I discussed the danger of antibiotics in a previous post. I decided to fill the ten-day prescription anyway. My throat was on fire! Antibiotics destroy good bacteria with the bad bacteria in your gut, and on the tenth day of taking them I had the worst stomach cramps and bloating ever. I was miserable. Fortunately, I knew the power of probiotics, and I took action.
I did not have the symptoms before I started the antibiotics. In fact, the last time I experienced symptoms like those was before I became vegan. The details are discussed in my vegan journey. I was almost in tears telling my husband about the pain and discomfort, but after eating my probiotic salad combined with the probiotic drink, all symptoms were gone within one day. Hellelujah! Last Thursday night I ate the salad with the drink, and I had the salad and drink for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Friday. Saturday morning my system was back to normal. No bloating. No cramps. Winning!
Powerful, potent, flavorful, gut-repairing, and only five ingredients!
