Believe it or not, it helps tremendously along with medication. This was the other life altering event that I participated in to help my "D" and it along with lots of water and my medication (Levbid) makes this woman a happy one! I eat pretty much whatever I want and dont really have a problem anymore unless its the week before my period or if I consume something very greasy or sometimes deep fat fried. Still though, its nothing like what it used to be like. Just thought this would help too!
