I dont really have IBS anymore if that is what I had. I thought i would post here to help others. I had anal fissures due to constipation, but I couldnt heal them no matter what for years. The doctor wanted to do surgery on my ass and cotarize it. I wasn't going to do that.
 
This problem for me was incurable and i thought I was never going to solve it.  until my friend told me about yogurt.
 
I eventually narrowed the cure for me down to ORGANIC YOGURT. The specific Brand I use is WALLABY. It has a picture of a Kangaroo on it. I buy it at whole foods. If they ever discontinue this item I will be worried. I know there are other ways to get probiotics in your system, but this is the only way that worked for me. I tried the pills with billions of bacteria of all 14 different strains. Didn't work.
 
So thats it. I keep my butt in check with Wallaby Yogurt. I wonder if this works for other people....

Hi Spysr, and welcome to HealingWell!
Thank you for sharing your yogurt secret with us. Most of us are on probiotics so it might just be worth it to try this organic yogurt.
Take care...

Thank you for that spysr,
Probiotics have become more and more popular for IBS symptoms in the medical community. We have had many success stories about them on here. I'm glad that it has helped you also :)

The point i was trying to make is that the probiotic pill DIDN'T work. I took a few different ones. Some with just acidophilus or Bifidus. And one that had ALL 14 different strains! They didnt heal the fissures! The only thing that works is Organic Yogurt. And not all work that  well, only the Wallaby brand! I know i sound like a salesrep for Wallaby, but this is the truth. In fact im going to buy some today. I think there is some other ingredient or strain in the yogurt that ISNT in the processed pills or maybe not even listed on the labels.

Hi spysr,
The intent of this board is to share your experiences with others. If you found that this product has helped you, by all means share with the rest of us (unless you are advertising, which I don't think you are anyway). I have gotten a lot of ideas off this forum and many have/are working for me. I see that the nearest retailer is kind of far from where I live but close to my work so I think that I will go and check it out on one of my lunch breaks one day. Thank you again for sharing :)
Hugs, Des

I found that yogurt helped my diarrhea, but when I switched to just plain acidophillus pills, my problems came back.

Calcium has many benefits, including soothing inflamation in the digestive tract. (My mother has always drunk milkshakes when she gets acid reflux because it cuts the acid and soothes her angry stomach.) It's probable that the probiotics aren't what you need, but the calcium. Me, I'm on calcium pills and doing much better (although I still eat yogurt sometimes because I like it).

It could be that your particular brand has more calcium in it or has another ingredient that makes it better. My organic yogurt (I think it's Stonybrook) advertises inulein (or something like that, I'll have to look it up) as an ingredient that helps you absorb the calcium better. I don't think I've seen it listed on cheap, non-organic brands of yogurt, so maybe it's in yours and that's what helps?

I'm glad you found something that helps. I daresay those fissures were a very painful pain in the... well, you know.

Hmmmmmm.. I never thought about that. Yeah if anyone has fissures that just wont heal. Eat Wallaby Organic Yogurt and they will go away in about 3 or 4 days. But i'll look into the Calcium thing.
