I was reading some posts on the IBS forum and I came across a post about lactose intolerance. The member posted this link to a video about a product called lactagen. It claims that if you take the supplement for 38 days it will permently relieve you of your lactose intolerance symptoms.
Has anyone heard/tried this? I think it sounds interesting, and probably too good to be true but it is alluring because I HATE being lactose intolerant.
Here's the link to the video...
You can also go to www.ritternutrition.com for the product info

That was interesting information to share, thanks. I know everyone is different, but for me being lactose intolerant, I only get annoyed with my inability to eat what everyone else is eating when my hubby and I go out to eat and him wanting to get dessert. I think it frustrates him some because we don't go to leatherbee's any more since I can't have their ice cream. But, I've gotten ok with being lactoes intolerant now. Found ways around things due to it. Hasn't held me back much.

It only bothers me because its unpredictable. Some days I can eat more than others. It sucked the most when I was on vacation with my boyfriends family this past week. We were in Disney World and it was hotter than you know what and I couldn't eat the ice cream :(

There is a known general way that you can rebuild the tolerance for lactose back up, apparently you avoid it completely for at least 4 months, then you slowly add a bit into your diet for a day then avoid it for 4 days after that, then on the fifth day you add a little more than the first time and then avoid it for 3 days after that and so on.

Another way I found to deal with it is by using a probiotic called Primadophilus Reuteri made by natures way, it also aids with my IBS and crohn's symptoms, but has completely taken care of my severe lactose intolerance issue.

Very interesting. Lactagen is supposed to be a probiotic/prebiotic. If so, it's worth a try.

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, Vitamins, Lexapro (for stress).
