I’ve given up on Beano and Phazyme, but I’ve been trying the Kombucha route for the last week or so and actually I think it might be helping
(in my mind that’s a whisper, as if saying it out loud will break the spell)
I’m still having Soylent (I’m still finishing up 1.0 though I have 1.1 and 1.2 available) for breakfast every day, and for lunch 6 days out of 7. Mostly healthy grocery or restaurant food for dinner every night.
The bloating is almost gone, and the gas I have now only comes at the very end of the day and a) it’s not as voluminous, and b) not as powerful. There might be a little here and there through the daytime, but it’s so much less than before I am finally feeling like this might be a viable solution… I hope - it’s been so long I am very skeptical.
For those who might want to try it too here’s what I’ve done so far: about 3 16oz bottles of Kombucha (2 different brands) spread in sips (no chugging) over the last 9 days.
It tastes like vinegar to me (regardless the flavor on the label) so I don’t think I’ll ever enjoy drinking it but so far I love what it seems to be doing for my digestion.
Will continue this for a while longer and report back if anything gets worse or better.
