Can Shakeology™ Help My IBS?

Hi! My name is Holly Hierman, CEO of Fit Finances and an avid Shakeology™ drinker!  There are many reasons why I love this meal replacement shake, including extra energy and and helping with weight loss.  Of course, those two reasons are fantastic, but the reason that I love Shakeology™ is what it has done relating to the debilitating bouts I was having with IBS, (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

A lot of people don’t like to talk about such things, but so many of us are living with chronic pain and medical issues that I want to talk about it. Growing up, I experienced severe, debilitating pain in the upper area of my stomach, which went undiagnosed for many years.  The pain so bad at times, I couldn’t get out of bed, couldn’t go to school, and the worst when I couldn’t go to gymnastics.  I was a gymnast!   I would get these attacks that lasted anywhere from a couple hours up to several days. I was in and out of the hospital as a child without a solid diagnosis, until they finally figured out that my stomach was actually spasming, almost like cramping.

The only thing that helped this debilitating condition was the use of tranquilizers.  At some point, I learned there were certain things that would trigger an episode, if I was unable to avoid it I would choose to take the tranquilizer for some relief or just kinda deal with the pain.  As I said before, an attack could last a couple hours or several days, and as an adult I missed work, missed college, just a bunch of stuff I needed to be doing!  If you’ve ever suffered from a chronic condition, you know how incredibly painful and honestly what a pain-in-the-butt it can be. It really interrupts life, and my IBS was going to continue to flare up throughout my life.

I started drinking Shakeology™ everyday for the reasons so many of us do, energy, weight loss, and mental clarity.  Over the course of a couple months, I began to realize there was an added benefit, my bouts with IBS were becoming less frequent. You have no idea how big this was for me!  Up until now,  I expected IBS to interrupt my life at least two to six days a month.  I knew I was onto something amazing and thought to myself, “Oh my gosh!  Shakeology™ helps with my IBS!”  Perhaps my body has more energy and clarity to avoid the known triggers, leading to fewer flare-ups, I don’t know the reasons.  I do know I feel blessed that Shakeology™ continues to keep the symptoms and flare-ups to a minimum.

If this is something you’ve struggled with too, it is worth every single penny. I’ve been on Shakeology ™ for six years now and I can count on one hand the number of attacks I’ve had!  I thank Beachbody™ for creating it and I thank God for allowing me to be open to trying something like this, because that’s definitely a benefit I didn’t even know I was going to get. Have a great day!
