"I am now able to take 4 packs/day every 3 days as upkeep for my gut."

I was diagnosed with UC 2 years ago, and after trying many drugs my GI specialist told me I would have to start taking immunosuppressants. I already have a terrible immune system, so instead I pursued different options with help of a naturopath. He suggested I try VSL#3 and it has made a world of difference keeping my symptoms at bay. After taking 2 packs/day, and then increasing to 4 packs/day... I am now able to take 4 packs/day every 3 days as upkeep for my gut. A happy gut is a happy life!

"I tried other types of probiotics and none of them helped."

I have to write this testimonial. I had a routine colonoscopy and everything was OK, but after a while I started having diarrhea and blood for a long time. Eventually I also started looking into fecal transplant therapy. I asked my doctor if I could try VSL#3, as I knew someone else taking it who strongly recommended it. After 2 weeks, taking 2 packages a day, the diarrhea and blood stopped. I still continue in the study for fecal transplant therapy, but there is no doubt that VSL#3 has made a huge difference. I recommend it for anyone with any kind of bowel issues. I tried other types of probiotics and none of them helped. Please do yourself a favour and try it for at least 2 or 3 weeks... what do you have to lose?

"One dose, and the problem completely disappeared."

I have been pinned to my apartment for months. I had to wake up every hour in the night. One dose, and the problem completely disappeared. We will see what happens in future, but just to have even one day as a normal person is a delight. I just wish this were more affordable for other people in my boat.

"I was suffering from digestive problems for over 10 months."

I finally was diagnosed with IBS. I was using another probiotic, supplements, and diet but nothing was helping me. I finally read some great reviews on VSL#3 and decided to give it a try. After 1 week of using VSL#3, my digestive problems started disappearing. I started being able to digest food and became regular again. After a month of using this product my health is as good as before. This product works. I recommend it to anyone suffering from digestive issues.

"Been taking your product for over three years now. 1 pack a day."

After having several bowel resections for crohn's, being hospitalized for 6 months my doctor recommended trying this before going down other drug treatment paths again. So far I have been in remission with no problems and no other drugs. I recommend this product along with a good diet. This has made a big difference in my life. Crohn's is finally something that doesn't affect my day to day life.

"The difference in him is REMARKABLE!"

We had my 9 year old son on the GAPS diet for autism for 4 months, we had noticed some mild improvements with diet alone, and then in the fourth month we found VSL#3, which was recommended by Dr. Bryce Wylde. He has now been through 3 boxes, he takes it twice a day. The difference in him is REMARKABLE! Probiotics and diet are changing my son's life. It's a financial burden but worth every penny in the end. I highly recommend this product and omitting irritating foods.

"I am very happy and able to go about my life again."

After being hospitalized for severe dehydration and infection, treated with antibiotics and saline for ten days ..and emergency visits twice since Dec. with the same treatment, and loosing 40 # in that time, as well as continuous diahrea for the whole time....A friend who's son just became a surgeon recommended your product...within 4 days I was having stools with some shape to it and the pain of cramping was waneing. I have used it for 2 months now and am very happy and able to go about my life again.

"I was diagnosed in June 2003 with severe ulcerative colitis."

I tried all the treatments available and imaginable (Pentasa, Imuran, Remicade, Humira, and different types of steroids) without any noticeable improvement except for high dosage of the steroids but the use long term will damage the body.

I also tried all sorts of natural/holistic treatments including probiotics, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, shiatsu treatments without any relief.

Then I saw a Father's testimony of his son's experience: after an operation the boy took VSL#3 and his condition improved considerably, I wanted to try it.

I have been taking VSL#3 for the past 3 months (1 sachet at the end of my supper). Within one week of taking VSL#3, I was sleeping through the night, which has not happened for many years. During the day I have a lot less abdominal pain and less urgency to go to the bathroom (during the flare-ups I was going 15 times a day with blood).

I am feeling a lot better today with less pain and have the sensation of being well physically.

I cannot promise that VSL#3 will work for everyone the way it did for me, but VSL#3 is a godsend.

"I have suffered with Ulcerative Colitis for 17 years."

Since last year, I have been taking VSL#3 & this is the first time in 16 months I have stayed in remmission Last year I had to cancel all my social invitations & a trip to Machu Pichu. While I was home I had 24 visits to the washroom & also lost a lot of weight . I would like to contact others that have had the same experience as I had. So far I have been taking 2 pouches of the VSL#3 & it seems to be keeping me in remission.

"The positive effects from the medication have virtually changed my life."

I am an ileal pouch patient for over 20 years due to complications from ulcerative colitis. Since then I have had to deal with severe morning toxicity, excessive bloating problems, and multiple trips (up to 5 a day) to the bathroom. I was also sick half the year from flues and colds which I could not shake.

In Jan 2008 I started taking VSL3. The positive effects from the medication have virtually changed my life. I am no longer toxic in the morning, the bloating is significantly less and I go to the bathroom as little as twice a day. The endless flues and colds have stopped and my overall health is fantastic compared to before VSL3.

I would strongly encourage anyone who has intestinal tract problems to try VSL3. Give yourself enough time to make sure it works for you. In my case I could feel the difference after 2 weeks and felt the full benefits after about 6 weeks. I started off with 4 packs a day eventually cutting back to 2 daily. I bumped it back to 3 packets daily because it made a big difference in how I feel. Occasionally I let a few days lapse before re-ordering and that turned out to be a mistake. It took me only 1 day of missing my dose to feel things sliding back.
