For the past week, I did my Ileocecal Valve Syndrome Experiment to see how it would affect my gut health. It has been a very long time since I suffered from Ileocecal Valve Syndrome. I suffered for the first part of my life and I wanted to see what would happen if I changed my diet. Would the symptoms come back? I eat good food and I take the supplements that I recommend. But I decided last week I was going to go for seven days and see what would happen if I didn’t eat any greens or salads. I did continue with the supplements. (The Essentials packet and some extra mind and body). For seven days I ate good food, good meal choices but no salads or greens. Here’s what happened.
In just a few days I experienced the following:

* brain fog
* joint pain, especially in areas where I had previous injuries
* gas and bloating
* poor sleep
* energy crashes
* cravings for sugar
* no regularity
* lack of focus 

It didn’t bring back great memories. It was like this for me growing up except this time it was not as bad, because I only did a week. There was no horrible constipation like I went through as a kid, but I definitely wasn’t regular. I was pretty sure of what would happen when I did my Ileocecal Valve Syndrome Experiment, but it was a real eye-opener about how important food is to a healthy gut. The day after I ate a salad with greens, black beans, cranberries, walnuts, tomatoes, cucumber, and some spices I noticed a difference when I woke up the next morning. My hands didn’t hurt and I felt awake. 
I realize getting better after only a week is not the same as what you are going through, but you can get better too. I got better after many years. It just takes a little time. Small, slow changes in how you eat and what foods you eat together matters. Add our supplements and see what it’s like to feel good again. We are so sure we offer a 90-day no-risk guarantee.
