I’ve been having stomach problems for a long time now, but the other night they were so bad that I ended up in the hospital because of the pain. After X-rays, EKG’s and all the other stuff, it turns out my digestive system is a mess. One of the things I’m doing to help fix that long term is to begin taking a probiotic.
According to WebMD: “Probiotics are bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines. The normal human digestive tract contains about 400 types of probiotic bacteria that reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and promote a healthy digestive system. The largest group of probiotic bacteria in the intestine is lactic acid bacteria, of which Lactobacillusacidophilus, found in yogurt with live cultures, is the best known. Yeast is also a probiotic substance. Probiotics are also available as dietary supplements.”
I’ve also read that Probiotics can help with weight loss. Let’s hope that happens for me!! Here is the probiotic that I’ve chosen. You can buy these OTC.
Thank goodness for insurance!
Cooper decided to eat my Prada glasses the other day. I went in to another room for a few minutes to change and when I got out, the glasses were in the process of being chewed up! Luckily, when I bought the glasses, I bought the insurance and when I took them to Lenscrafters, they ordered me a new pair for only $25.00! Yea! I can’t wait until they come in. In the mean time, I get to wear some lopsided glasses with teeth marks on the lenses!!
Mike locked his keys in the truck this morning. I vaguely remembered that my phone service used to have roadside assistance attached to it when I was in Dallas. So, I looked it up on the internet and it looks like we have it here too. I am paying an extra $2.99 a month for this service and I’m not really even sure why I chose to pay extra, because that really isn’t in my nature. However, I’m sure thankful that I did! Thank goodness Cingular offered this option!
