Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if slippery elm helped anyone? I recently went to a naturopathic doctor & that is what she gave me. along with probotics I called the company -"Nature's Sunshine -Slippery Elm" & asked about gluten. They told me they're was no gluten in their product. I'm still hesitate to take this since my intestines are a mess & I don't want to make things worse. And after four months of gluten free, I'm not so trusting of food companies anymore. :P

Has anyone tried this product before & did it help them?

I have to say the naturopathic doctor did help me a lot. After going to so many doctors & they just don't have a clue about this disease, I thought maybe someone that actually specializes in nutrition might be helpful. My step mother has been seeing her for years. I wish I would've seen her years ago... Anyway, she did see that I was extremely acidity & I need to get my Ph balanced in order for my intestines to heal. I've bee tiring to eat more alkaline foods & my Ph is now balanced. It took about five days. I do feel a lot better than I did last week. I still feel there is so much inflammation in my intestines still & I just want to do whatever I can to help them heal faster.

Any advice would be great! Thanks!

I used it in the beginning and thought it was helpful. There was something soothing about it. I'd definitely recommend it, but do be aware that if you are pregnant or could be pregnant, it's something that could cause a miscarriage.

I also used Super Digestaway, was helpful as well. Good luck!

I used a lot of Thayer's slippery elm lozenges when I had the flu last September and didn't have any problems with them. I felt like they made my stomach feel better as well as soothing my sore throat. I've heard slippery elm is supposed to be soothing to your insides.

I am a HUGE fan of Slippery elm. Doctors would continually put me on prescriptions meds. And I can't handle the side effects being a Epileptic they all give me seizures. So I had to look for something natural. Slippery elm has been the only thing to help me through. It doesn't take away the issues 100%. But it helps aleviate it some, definitly.

If you follow the directions properly and all I think it can be quite helpful and I use it almost anytime I have to travel or go out these days. And it's supposed to be really good for the stomach and intestinal tract.

So I am a Huge fan of it and would recommend it absolutley. Only thing is granted it is a herb and natural; you 100% can't use it or take it if your pregnant. I was researching it and reading about it and thats a huge no, no. But other then that. Go for it!

I hope it helps some as it has helped me. Like I said its only a temporary fix. But if you need to get from point A to point B, or need some temporary relief or need to have it ease up a little. Slippery elm helps.

Hi mamaw,

Thanks everyone for your advice! The name of the naturopathic doctor I seen is Sharon M. Ritchea ND, CNHP, CRAMH. She has a website also. Her office is in Mt. Lebanon. She did help me a lot with my diet. My intestines were getting more inflamed because without knowing, I was eating lots of acidy foods & this was making my system extremely acidy. I didn't try the slippery elm yet, so I'm not sure if it helps or not. I do know that the diet she put me on alone is helping me & I've been monitoring my PH everyday so I know how to balance it & what foods to eat.

Just saw your postings. I do a lot of natural/herbal balancing. One thing that worked for me, without question, was Royal Jelly. Calms down inflammation. Ask your doc about it. I have been off gluten for over 3 months now, and inflammation is still an issue for me. When I stop the Royal Jelly, I am not quite right. Since I am an older age, I am told it could take a year to heal.
