I have dealt with incomplete bowel movements since I was a kid. I'm 31 now, athletic build, all around quite healthy but over time the constipation wore me down and out.
I lost not only my energy but I lost my life. My days began to revolve around my bowel movements and the shape I would be in mentally and physically when I finally left the bathroom.
It got to the point where I was never on time for anything. Many times the psychological defeat was too much and I gave up on ever leaving the house that day so I lay up in bed depressed.
If I sucked it up and went out anyway the discomfort and anxiety accompanied with the constant urge to go and never being complete, would likely inhibit any pleasant experience from partaking.
Then of course in about 6-8 hours max I would need to be back in the bathroom and surely I could not use a public stall and be granted the slightest relief. It would need to be my bathroom.
My activity became extremely limited. I eventually lost the energy to put up with it and dreaded having a bowel movement so much that started pinching my cheeks until it subsided.
Realize too that I have tried everything else under the sun to relieve this problem to the slightest avail. No matter how seemingly well a movement I might have, it's like my rectum always stores some about a mm. from the exit and it's the most frustrating thing in the world.
Anyways, I have an extremely fast metabolism. I need to go at least once a day but already knowing it won't be a success I gave up trying altogether.
It wasn't so bad at first, I found if I didn't try I could avoid inevitably failing for while. I drank very little liquids and ate much less to delay having a strong bowel movement I could not hold.
But I took it too far. I resisted the urge for 10 days straight and when I went it was the most excruciatingly painful thing I have ever felt.
Literally ripped me apart down there and I bled profusely. The stool stuck at the in now what was an open wound would cause the pain to linger and at times worsen.
I could hardly bare to walk let alone sit. The doctors remedy of laxatives did no good, hard or soft my fissure would hyperextend and retract too strongly, ripping me back open every single time.
Sitz bath and ointments brought temp relief of pain but for 10 months I bled and hurt so badly.
Back in the bathroom and in bed I became stuck. Going through periods of eating a few days and clinching to starving myself for days because that pain is one I simply cannot bare.
Out of nowhere my mother (she got it in hopes of relieving joint pain) brought over a bottle of Total Restore one day and told me to try it.
I honestly thought it a gimmick and scolded her for being so gullible but decided to give it a try after reading the ingredients. I can't say I know anything about having a leaky gut or lectin but one thing I know absolutely is the ungodly pain of the torn fissure.
Then all a sudden, it was less than a week actually, I believe day 3 or 4, without any other types of treatment being done, appearing to be nothing short of a miracle, I went number 2 with no pain at all and no blood.
Total Restore is, what these pills did about my torn fissure, and I am so grateful and thankful for this, you have no idea. Words can't describe how awful of a pain that was and for it to be healed in a few days, what was unable to heal in almost a year, is proof to me that this stuff really does work.
Now I'm no doctor or medically educated in any fashion, but I think it's safe to assume the fissure is considered part of the gut. If not it can't be far off.
Whereas a puncture somewhere in the gut may be harder to diagnose and attribute to any issues you might be having, a fissure tear is visible and the pain spot easy to locate.
So because of this, I'm led to believe it does seem to work. Been on it two weeks now and I feel so much better. My bowel movements, unfortunately, are still incomplete, but compared to the fissure tear this issue something I can learn to live with.
My mother says the pills thus far have given her regularity. She feels no reduction in joint pain which either means she does not have a leaky gut, or pills need more time to work in her case.
So basically unless you're somehow certain you have leaky gut taking these pills expecting to relieve any symptoms sounds like a shot in the dark.
Whatever you do I hope you find help and relief in something and you remain in good health always.
P.S. If anyone has recommendations on how to relieve my incomplete movement problems, please let me know.
Btw, we bought ours on Amazon, much cheaper!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
