|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We are always available by email to answer your inquiries - here. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions that might help you.
Is hydration important?
It is important to drink 6 ~ 8 glasses of water per day.
Why should I drink 8 glasses (1 ~ 2 litres) of water daily ?
Chances are you are dehydrated if you don't. Did you know you are certainly dehydrated by the time your mouth tells you that you're thirsty? Unrecognised chronic dehydration is a major health problem. Some people count coffee, tea, colas and fruit juice as water. They are not, and in most cases they will dehydrate you even further. Your cells need water, pure water. We suggest starting a new habit -- drink half a glass of water each half hour during your day -- you will begin to feel so much better in most cases. Warm or hot water is best, but that's a personal choice. Any water is better than no water. Ibsacol has reportedly caused a headache in some people that always has been remedied by drinking more water.
How will I feel and how will I know it's working?
Many diarrhea-predominant customers have commented they think they are constipated when the diarrhea stops. This may or may not be true; normal may feel very strange for a little while. Not having diarrhea is not the same as being constipated, but it may feel that way to begin with. Be patient. Perhaps you might be a little constipated, and then it is time to reduce your dose to suit. You will learn to recognise what "normal" can be for you personally. No-one else can tell you.
How does it work?
IBSACOL improves immune system responses which in turn allows bowel function to return to near normal.
I have Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis - can Ibsacol help me?
If you are suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD, Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis or auto-immune related symptoms, Ibsacol is not suitable for you.
I've had my gall bladder removed. Can I still use IBSACOL?
Ibsacol contains two fatty acids and therefore requires bile salts and lipase to assimilate it. If your diet is NOT severely restricted after your cholecystectomy (gall bladder removed) then you may try IBSACOL. Begin at a low dose of 1 capsule taken twice daily. If tolerated then dose may be slowly increased to improve IBS symptoms.
How will I know that it is working?
When you notice a decrease in urgency and frequency of bowel motions. A reduction in the number of daily bowel motions is normal and does not herald constipation developing. A reduction in the dose of IBSACOL will affect the frequency of bowel motions.
