"I had to rush to the toilet 15 times a day"

We recently got a special review from one of our Gut Wealth customers Rhiannon. We followed up with her to see if she'd be happy to share her story. 

Rhiannon's story

Rhiannon 1A mum from Shropshire has opened up on her nightmare experience with IBS that left her rushing to the toilet 15 times a day for years.

On her worst days, mum of one Rhiannon N, 25, spends several hours in the bathroom. With severe IBS, and various foods setting off upset stomach within minutes - and she often has to rush to the toilet before she’s even finished a meal.

Rhiannon shared: “I’d be constantly bloated and had such severe, debilitating cramps and pains. There was no one safe food for me - sometimes something completely random would set me off.

"I’d be lucky if I even managed to sit through a meal without having to run to the toilet. There’s absolutely no chance of leaving the house on those days, you’re a slave to your bowels”.

Rhiannon first noticed her IBS symptoms at the age of 11 after trying new food on a family holiday and spending the whole trip on the toilet.

She explains that her symptoms became severe after an extreme case of gallstones meant that she needed emergency surgery to remove her gallbladder at the age of 14 - and even worse after giving birth to her son.

“The last 5 years have been horrendous. If I have a cup of coffee in the morning I’ll have to go to the toilet at least four times in the following hour - I’d rush to the toilet 15 times a day in total.

"There used to be a running joke when I’d go out for a meal with family or friends that I needed to scope out the bathroom before we sat down because I’d be visiting it at least five times during the meal, but it got to the point where I couldn’t even make it to the restaurant anymore.

"It definitely affected me socially - especially as someone who was dealing with it from a young age. I used to feel like people were staring at me when I made multiple trips to the bathroom in public, and I’d make excuses not to go out with friends or say my period cramps were too intense to leave the house”.

Rhiannon’s IBS has meant that she’s missed out on several social events and opportunities because she was too ill to leave the house, and explains that it was a close call with her partner’s grandmother that made her want to find a solution after years of unhelpful NHS advice.

“I’d spent years in doctors’ offices with them not prescribing me anything and telling me there was nothing they could do - they would write off IBS as if it wasn’t a big deal and I was left to handle it on my own as a young teenager. After a while I stopped going altogether because it was just depressing.

"A couple of months ago I felt brave enough to head into town with my partner’s nan - who doesn’t know about my condition - for coffee and cake. Almost immediately I was in horrendous pain and I had to tell her I needed to drop her off and go home - I was too embarrassed to say why.

"The whole drive home I was shaking, sweating and hyperventilating from the pain - I was convinced I was about to ruin the upholstery of my new car. It was a miracle that I made it home without a big accident, but it was another reminder that this really is no way to live my life”.

Determined to make a change, Rhiannon began researching postbiotics to boost her gut health, and came across Gut Wealth - liquid gut-boosting supplements clinically proven to reduce common IBS symptoms such as bloating and promote bowel regularity and gut immunity.

She explains that after just two weeks, her gut drastically improved to the point where she is now able to lead a normal life.

“After 4 days I noticed that although I was still cramping, I wasn’t going to the toilet as much. After 2 weeks I wasn’t having to rush to the toilet at all and the pain was almost completely gone.

Gut Wealth Rhiannon Story

"I’ve been taking them for 2 and a half months now and I can eat whatever I want. I never thought I’d see the day where I could drink my morning coffee and have spicy noodles for dinner.

I’d be stuck at home all day and sent to bed early with intense cramps before.

Now I can actually leave the house and walk around the shops now or go on date nights with my partner - he says it feels like he has the real me back”.
