My husband was having some difficulty with sudden bouts of diarrhea that were having him stop on the way to work and often having to make mad dashes to the bathroom. He also suffers from Gerd and is on medication for that. I was looking around to try to find something that might help him with this annoying and often embarrassing situation. I found the Phillips Colon Health product and started him on them. Within several months these episodes were greatly reduced. He has been on this now for a little over a year and I can't remember the last time he has had to make an emergency stop. He now doesn't even have to worry about it. Colon Health has made his life a lot easier and one less thing to worry about in his daily routine.
