hey guys, I stumbled upon this group and I am glad I did! I have struggled with IBS for quite some time, unable to put on weight, feeling horrible. I'm not saying I have found a cure, but I have been drinking Shakeology for a few months now and my digestive issues have made a complete turn around! Its filled with amazing ingredients, it's 100% natural and tastes delicious!  Coming from someone who used to vomit from the pain of bowel movements, I want to do nothing but share this wonderful shake!  Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested!

Thanks for this article.  It looks like most of these posts are from 2012.  I used to have Crohn's disease but have had no evidence of it, even on biopsy, for the past 3.5 years.  I'm looking for 10 people who want to do a little study with me to see if what I did can help them.  It's lifestyle/behavior modification coupled with nutrition in a support group style setting.  Long-distance is fine.  Please email me if you want more info:  sharonmeredith@gmail.com www.fitnesswithheart.com
