John’s story (based on an interview):

For many years, John was a public relations executive with a demanding job in promoting the company he worked for as a global leader in food, facilities management, and uniforms to many different audiences. During his high-pressure days filled with long working hours, he wrote press releases with compelling news angles, edited articles for his company’s internal publication and annual report, spoke with journalists about the company, and handled crisis situations, while juggling many other multi-faceted projects. “My job was high pressure and 24/7, always being available to counsel the company’s executives,” John said. “I struggled for years – even before my public relations job with my digestive symptoms – upset stomach, occasional cramping, gas, and diarrhea. It was an annoyance.”

Over the years, he tried many different approaches to help manage his occasional digestive symptoms. “I’ve been under the care of several gastrointestinal specialists who recommended diet and lifestyle changes, stress management techniques, and even prescribed a variety of prescription medications, none of which provided me with the relief I was looking for. I also have tried numerous over-the-counter products and herbal preparations, but with limited success,” John said.

A friend of John’s recommended IBgard®, so he talked to his doctor about it. “Since using IBgard®, I am most happy to report that my occasional digestive symptoms have calmed down significantly. I've never experienced such wonderful support from these unpredictable symptoms, and I wholeheartedly recommend IBgard® to anyone experiencing occasional digestive symptoms,” he said.

Today, John’s life is still as busy as ever, but slightly different now that he is retired from his public relations career. “I have a busy life. My days are full of recreational and sporting activities, such as swimming and walking long distances, as well as reading, attending concerts, and volunteering at my local food bank,” John said.

He continues to have incredible stamina and drive, and his focus is on another important job. He volunteers at his neighborhood dog rescue organization by walking five dogs each day and visits local schools and hospitals a few times a week with his therapy dog, Lily, a Golden Retriever. “I love dogs. They teach us about life and what’s important. They ask so little of us, but they reward us with tons of affection and attention. I like the fact that I’m making children happy when I bring Lily into a classroom full of energetic children or when we visit local hospitals to help patients forget about their medical condition for a brief time. Lily and I are always greeted with a smile and positive words,” John said.
