REGULAR anyone???

Okay girls, now that we all know each other I'm going to broach a topic that is one of those taboo topics that, for social reasons, you don't talk about with just anybody! You know what I'm talking about, right? Those topics that in casual, social settings (ie/ work parties, church FHE in the parks, meet the teacher nights, etc.) you just DON'T talk about! This topic is one left for those friends and family members that you tell your secrets to. The ones you swear in front of (even though your not a swearer), the ones you can say anything to? You know what I mean! So, since we are now all friends, we are gonna go for one of those TABOO topics! Ladies, its time to talk about something most people don't even speak to their spouses about. I'm talking about POOP! Yes, I said it. Poop! We all do it and if I'm not mistaken we are all probably mystified by how much or how little we poop! The reason I bring this up is because in going with the name of our blog "We Know The Good Stuff" I must say that I REALLY do know the good stuff when it comes to pooping regularly, easily and comfortably. Let me give you a little history...

A few years ago I started to get these terrible stomach aches. The kind where I would get hugely bloated, feel like I was super gassy but nothing would ever pass. Sometimes the stomach aches were so bad that I could hardly stand up straight and when I did stand straight I looked like I was 5 months pregnant. So I started to eliminate things from my diet to see if that helped. Diet Coke (never fear, that wasn't the problem and I'm appropriately back on it :-), bread, dairy, gum, nuts, etc. Nothing seemed to help this problem and guaranteed, every time I went to dinner somewhere nice, this stomach ache would present itself. Finally after a few years of it getting worse and worse I started using over the counter stuff like Gas X, Mylanta, Metamucil, etc. These products worked temporarily but the problem always returned. I even went to the doctor and was tested for the glutin allergy but it came back negative (glutin is in wheat and almost everything we eat has it). Left to either deal with life in an uncomfortable, bloated state I had almost given up. Until I heard about colon hydro therapy (that's a whole other post- yes, I tried it, yes it was weird, yes it works). Through the therapist's recommendation, I found a product that has honestly and in every way changed my life.You MUST know about this!
What I found is an all natural fiber drink mix that tastes disgusting but works wonders on my digestive tract. It is called "Pura Cleanse" and is sold by a company called Miracles of Health (miraclesofhealth.net). I drink it regularly two times a day (plugging my nose and gulping it as fast as possible), and my life has changed. My stomach aches are completely gone, I'm never constipated, and I have soft, easy, regular movements. Not to mention more energy, a flatter stomach (no bloating) and a happier disposition because I'm not full of "crap". (just as a funny side note, one of the first times I met Angie, she told my mom and I that her parents told her the reason her eyes were brown was because she was so full of crap! Ha ha ha! Do you remember that Ang?)

Anyway, I don't tell you this to gross you out. Though this is funny to talk about I am really being completely serious. In the past year I have talked to so many friends who have the same stomach aches and issues that I had. It is so much more common than anyone realizes! I share this in hopes of helping someone who has "pooping problems" as I did. They are not fun to have but no one ever talks about it so no one knows what will help. If you have any issues like that, trust me, I know what will help and its this stuff.

Go to the website, check out their stuff and if you feel so inclined, order the PURA CLEANSE! If you want some quick results, order the CLEANSE CAPS too! You'll be more regular than you could ever imagine!

Good luck and let me know how it goes! Happy Pooping!! :-)

Mar, you must not be spending enough time round the Brinks! Poop is one of our favorite topics to discuss. Good poops, bad poops, large poops, stinky poop, nothing is off limits! I might need to try that stuff though, sounds wonderful to always have good poo!
