I was episode free until February 2014. Worst pisode ever. 20 days of diaheria and constipation. I ordered the tummy fiber. Unbelievable within 4 days diaheria gone. Within a week I was better than I've ever been. I wished I had of started the tummy fiber 6 years ago. Thank you Heather You have a customer for life.

Heather says:
Hi Joyce -


Here are some tips to help easily dissolve the Tummy Fiber in liquids or moist foods.

TIPS TO DISSOLVE TUMMY FIBER

1) It works best if the liquid temperature is cool or lukewarm, not very cold or boiling hot

2) Add Tummy Fiber to an empty cup, mix it with add just enough liquid to dissolve it, then add the remaining liquid

3) Stir with a fork instead of a spoon

4) After stirring initially, let it sit for about 60 seconds, then stir again and any remaining lumps should dissolve

5) Sprinkle on moist foods while stirring it in instead of adding a big spoonful all at once

Confusion about how soluble fiber helps both diarrhea and constipation is common, and understandable. We have a whole article just about that here http://www.helpforibs.com/diet/faq.asp#dandc

Please let us know if you have any other questions at all.

Best,
Heather

Hi Sue - thank you very much for your feedback. We greatly appreciate that you are a long time customer. I did not know about the birthday discount request. We are a small company, so we don't have a feasible way to track and apply promotional codes unique to an individual's birthday. I'm so sorry about that.

I do see that your most recent Tummy Fiber order came right in the middle of our February fiber sale, but you did not use the 15% promo code for that. I've retroactively applied that code to your order, so you'll see a credit for $9.94 on your card.

We try to offer sales to our regular customers via email once or twice a month. Those are not sales offered on the website, they are only for current customers, as our thank you for their support. If you don't get those emails and would like to, please let us know. You are also always welcome to call toll free 866 640 4942 and ask us if we have a sale going on if you don't want to go through email.

Hi Don,

Thanks for giving us your feedback.

You may need to increase your dosage of acacia fiber before you see results. You'd want to start with 1/2 teaspoon twice daily, but that is not typically a final dose where you will see results. On average, diarrhea takes 2-3 tablespoons per day to resolve (it may take less). Constipation can take up to 3-5 tablespoons per day, the higher end is more likely if the constipation has been severe and chronic. Please remember to raise your Acacia fiber dosage level by 1/2 - 1 teaspoon at a time, every few days or every week, until your bowel function has stabilized.

Please let us know if you continue to have trouble with the Tummy Fiber.

Best regards,
Laura Tuscher - Heather's Tummy Care Representative

Heather says:
Hi there,

One of the most common fiber supplements is psyllium (sold as Metamucil,
Konsyl, Fibrogel, or as bulk husks), and it is actually about 1/3 insoluble
fiber. Psyllium can worsen (or even cause) bloat and stomach gas in many
people, which is why we recommend sticking to a 100% soluble fiber
supplement.

I recommend increasing your dosage of Acacia fiber gradually, until your
symptoms stabilize. That can be anywhere from 2-5 tablespoons per day total, depending
on the severity of your symptoms.

Please let us know if you need more direction while taking the Acacia
fiber.

Best regards,

tummy fiber works
The tummy fiber and peppermint pills have drastically changed my quality of life. I was referred here by a dietician about 6 months ago and it has been an uphill climb ever since. The research, product line and information on this site is mind-blowing. Altoids, peppermint pills and peppermint tea are my new drugs. The suggested yoga restorative poses for digestion are working for me and the IBS cookbook is front and center in the kitchen. This is a learning process that I've wholly embraced. Going to try out the hypnotic tapes next. Heather, I salute you and thank you for defying the gastro doctors and the medical establishment in general and for putting all your research in one place where IBS sufferers can come to get well.

Hello Beverly,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We're so sorry that you're having trouble with the Acacia Tummy Fiber.

Some people do have to start at an extremely low dose and gradually increase to get their gut used to extra fiber.

You may want to try starting out at just 1/8 teaspoon twice daily, and add an extra 1/8 teaspoon to one of your doses every 4-5 days or so.

It can also be helpful to add the fiber to moist foods instead of liquids.

For people who are particularly prone to bloating and gas this can make a big difference.

Regarding our Peppermint Tummy Tea, it is exceptionally beneficial for IBS abdominal pain and spasms, diarrhea, and urgency (it will not cause or worsen constipation).

If you remain unhappy with the fiber, please do return it for a full refund.

Please let us know if we can help answer any more questions.

Best,

Tummy Fiber a must in my life
I live on this stuff now. My IBS symptoms are mostly better--that is, when i'm following exactly what the IBS cookbook says to do they are vastly better, and now I try hard to do that. I put the Tummy Fiber in jars of baby food, peaches, mostly. When I traveled to Israel I was afraid not to have it with me, so I took two boxes of the Tummy Fiber travel sticks and that worked out perfectly, I just put it in whatever water I drank.

Hello Louise,

We are so glad that you are enjoying our Acacia Tummy Fiber. Thank for such a wonderful rating of the product!
I am so sorry you did not find the speed of delivery satisfactory or customer service. Normally orders to foreign countries take 3-7 business days. Sometimes, however, foreign orders are held up at Customs. It is very frustrating for us as well because it seems to be totally random as to whether Customs will hold an order and for how long. We have customers that order from us regularly for years without any complications and then out of the blue one of their packages will be detained for weeks on end.
Orders placed Monday - Friday before 9am PST will normally ship that day. Otherwise, orders will normally ship the next business day.
Foreign orders normally arrive within 7-10 business days, unless they are held in Customs.

Hi Ginger - thank you very much for your kind product review! I saw your comments about sometimes missing a day or two, and that you're not sure what to do in that situation.

You can just resume your Tummy Fiber at the dose you were on. A day or two is not enough of time off the product to affect your gut's comfort level with your current dose. If you stopped taking it for several months, then you might have to start back in with a lower dose and gradually increase.

Hope this helps!

After the chemo treatments, radical surgery and more treatments, I am cancer free and it actually was peritoneal cancer. Your products have helped a lot with a very sluggish system along with taking stool softeners. Thank you so much.

Heather says:
Hello Darla,

I am so sorry your mom is not satisfied with the product.

The cardinal rule with Acacia is to start at a low dose (for Acacia, just 1/2 a level measuring teaspoon, twice daily), and increase gradually. It can take several weeks to slowly work your way up to your daily resolving dose.

Acacia is not a laxative, and it will not give "overnight relief", so taking a low dose for a few days or even a few weeks will not alleviate your symptoms. What it will do is begin to acclimate your gut to a higher daily dose of fiber, and this is the goal. It may be that your mom still needs to keep increasing in order to see the results she is looking for.

Generally those with the diarrhea side of IBS will resolve between 1 and 3 Tablespoons a day. Those with constipation need more fiber for relief and may need 3-5 Tablespoons a day. My guess is since your mom alternates between the two, she may need to reach a daily dose between 2 and 4 Tablespoons a day.

If she is still not satisfied, she is welcome to send back the Tummy Fiber for a refund.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do or if you have any further questions.

All the Best,
Joanna

Heather says: Feedback Rating
Hello Humberto,

I am so sorry you did not find the speed of delivery satisfactory. Normally orders to foreign countries take 3-7 business days. Sometimes, however, foreign orders are held up at Customs. It is very frustrating for us as well because it seems to be totally random as to whether Customs will hold an order and for how long. We have customers that order from us regularly for years without any complications and then out of the blue one of their packages will be detained for weeks on end.

It has been our experience that Customs can hold packages for 6-8 weeks sometimes. This doesn't happen to all packages, but occasionally especially with larger orders, it can happen. A delay like this is especially likely to happen when there are Customs fees due upon delivery. Sometimes orders will be held at the local post office, awaiting customer pick-up and payment of the Customs fees. This has actually happened in the past without the post office ever notifying the customer that their package was being held. So, you could check and see if your local post office does have the order for you. If things are held up in Customs, we just have to wait until they're finally processed through. All of their contact will be with you, so we never even know if Customs is holding a package until the customer passes this info along to us.

I hope you are enjoying your Tummy Fiber! Please let us know if you have any questions.

Best,
Joanna

Customer Service
Heather says:
Hello Joy,

I am so sorry to hear this. It could be that you started with too high of a dose.

Taking too much acacia too fast can cause increased gas and bloating. Acacia is one of the lowest gas-forming fibers out there and going slow makes the gas issue totally avoidable. Please be patient because this really does work.

We recommend starting with ½ teaspoon twice a day (daily dose of 1 teaspoon). You can split the daily dose up as many time as you like throughout the day, just divide it by 2 or 3 depending on the frequency you prefer. Try to increase the dose every 4th day or so by a teaspoon (add this to the daily dose). If you get increased gas and bloating by jumping the dose up by a teaspoon, try cutting this in half. Some people with IBS are so sensitive they have to go up at ¼ teaspoons every 4th day. Keep stepping up the dose every 4th day or so until you find a dose that resolves your constipation and/or diarrhea. Constipation is usually resolved with a daily dose of 4-5 tablespoons/day and diarrhea/loose stools usually resolves at a lower dose of 1-3 tablespoons/day. You shouldn't take more than 5 tbsp/day. The maintenance dose is different for each person depending on their specific symptoms. Dietary changes are often necessary to make lasting changes. In the beginning until you stabilize, it works best to take the acacia before each meal to minimize the effect of trigger foods in the meal and to calm the intestines before the food arrives.

I hope this helps! Please keep in touch as you increase.

All the best,
Joanna

Heather says:
Hi Frank,

I'm so sorry you're having difficulty getting the Tummy Fiber to dissolve. The Tummy Fiber is certified organic, all natural gum of the acacia tree - also known as gum arabic. We have actually sourced the exact same organic Acacia Senegal grade from the same supplier from the time our company was founded. It is collected much like maple syrup, though the gum is more a solid than a liquid. They are amber colored, crystal-like pieces; these pieces are what the acacia gum looks like when it is collected from the outside of the tree. The gum is then dissolved in water, filtered, and the liquid is sprayed onto very large heated surfaces to sterilize the fiber and so the water can evaporate. What's left after the water evaporates is the fine, white powder that is acacia fiber.

There are no chemicals used in processing the acacia, and every step from the orchards to the processing to our packaging facility is certified organic. Because this is a natural gum with nothing added, and not a synthetic product that is highly processed, the grain size of the finished powder can vary from lot to lot, and even within a single lot. Even though we have specs in place for the grain size to be consistent and the optimum granularity for dissolving easily in liquids, during the packaging process the conveying and vibrating activities can sometimes separate out larger grains of the gum. This can result in a handful of finished packages of Tummy Fiber that have larger or more irregular grain sizes, which can then take longer to dissolve in liquids.

I'm including a list of tips we've come up with over the years to help fully dissolve the acacia in liquids or moist foods.

TIPS TO DISSOLVE TUMMY FIBER

1) It works best if the liquid temperature is cool or lukewarm, not very cold or boiling hot

2) Add Tummy Fiber to an empty cup, mix it with add just enough liquid to dissolve it, then add the remaining liquid

3) Stir with a fork instead of a spoon

4) After stirring initially, let it sit for about 60 seconds, then stir again and any remaining lumps should dissolve

5) Sprinkle on moist foods while stirring it in instead of adding a big spoonful all at once

6) A customer recently wrote us to say that he uses a Cuisinart Quick-Prep hand held blender to mix up his Tummy Fiber in just a few seconds.

If you are still unable to use the Tummy Fiber and are at all unhappy, please let us know and we will replace or refund the product.

Hope this helps,
Joanna

Heather says: Feedback Rating
Hi Joyce - I'm so sorry you're not feeling better. You may be someone who is extra sensitive to any change in your fiber. Your Citrucel was at a very low dose (4 tablets = 2 grams), so you may need to drop below that dose if you change to the Tummy Fiber.

Normally, people can start on ½ teaspoon twice daily (that would be 2 grams), but for people who are just extra sensitive, they may have to start at ¼ teaspoon twice daily. That should not cause any bloating or gas, it should just get your gut used to a change. You can then add an extra ¼ tsp to one of your daily doses every 4-5 days or so, and keep gradually increasing at that rate.

Diarrhea does tend to resolve at a lower end of the dose range, but I don't think 2 grams will be enough. On average, diarrhea takes 5-15 grams per day, more typically 10-12 grams per day.

If you're willing to start over at a lower dose, I would hope you see big improvements with no side effects. If you prefer to just return the Tummy Fiber for a full refund you are certainly welcome to, and I understand.

Best,
Heather

You can also add it to bottled water, shake it up, and drink or take with you. Sprinkle on any wet food - hot cereals, guacamole, pastas, soups, sauces, dips, puddings, tuna salad, etc. For baking add 1 T fiber per cup of flour. For other cooking, whisk in 1 T fiber per cup of liquid. Hope this helps!

I was told by doctors to use psyllium which did not work, they said I was taking too much or not enough--so I quit. The Acacia so far has been fine. Have not yet increased dosage.

Opinion
I began taking 1/4 tsp twice a day ... I've been using this product for the past 2 weeks. I was thrilled when I didn't wake up with nausea from gas buildup during the night - still had the gas - but I developed cramping so I cut back to 1/4 tsp each day which does help but I still need the anti-spasmodic medicine Bentyl but not as much. I still experience 1/2 solid stool in pellet form and some solid and then diarrhea - I am keeping a food journal too but I don't think my system will ever return to normal again. This is my new normal. It's better and I am grateful for that. I also purchased the IBS cookbook which I read for dietary suggestions.

Heather says:
Hi Leslie - It's good that you have started the fiber at a low dose, but you need to gradually increase that dose in order to see any benefits. The purpose of starting low, increasing gradually, is to get your gut used to more fiber (fiber is literally indigestible).

¼ tsp is only ½ gram of fiber - that is not enough to get any benefits from. See if you can increase your dose to ½ tsp twice a day. After 4-5 days go to 1 tsp in the am, and still ½ tsp in the pm. After another 4-5 days make both doses 1 tsp. And continue to increase slowly but steadily from there.

The gradual increase should prevent gas and bloating. Getting your dose up high enough will help prevent the painful spasms from IBS.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Best,
Heather

Amazing Product that works GREAT!!!!!
I had a small bowel resection in 2008 due to blood clots in my mesenteric arteries. Due to scar tissue and adhesions from that surgery, I developed a bowel obstruction in December 2012. I was advised by a dietitian to avoid foods that are high in insolubl fiber. Since I have a sister with colon cancer, I was also advised to get plenty of fiber each day. After lots of confusion and frustration, I found the answer for both issues. Heather's Tummy Fiber has the soluble fiber that will help keep my colon healthy while also not causing issues with the bowel obstruction. It has no taste whatsoever and is easy to add to my water bottle 3 times per day. Thank you so much for the great product, fast shipping, and solution to my complicated issue!!!!

I've been taking a fiber and herb supplement for years, (it's only intended for short-term use), because it was the only thing I found that kept me regular. I stopped these supplements as soon as I began the acai fiber. The acai powder has been working great and produces consistent results. Excellent product. Easier when sprinkled over food because doesn't mix well in liquids, but stirring with a fork rather than a spoon definitely helps.

Hi there,
I am sorry to hear that you were less than satisfied with the Acacia Tummy Fiber. It can take a while to work up to the right dose, and it is important to start at a low dose and gradually increase. It is not something that will work overnight.
Depending on your symptoms, you may need to take a higher dose of the acacia than you are taking right now.
Typically, people with diarrhea symptoms see a resolving dose anywhere from 1-3 Tablespoons per day, and constipation usually requires more than that- anywhere from 3-5 Tablespoons.

Here's a link to more information on the Acacia fiber, called the 5 constipation frustrations. You may find this helpful!
http://www.helpforibs.com/news/newsletter/060705.html#askheather

Of course, if you decide not to take the acacia for any reason, you can return it to us for a refund.
See our return policy here: http://www.helpforibs.com/shop/shipping.asp

Hi Jeanne,

We have actually sourced the exact same organic Acacia Senegal grade from the same supplier from the time our company was founded.

They are amber colored, crystal-like pieces; these pieces are what the acacia gum looks like when it is collected from the outside of the tree. The gum is then dissolved in water, filtered, and the liquid is sprayed onto very large heated surfaces to sterilize the fiber and so the water can evaporate. What's left after the water evaporates is the fine, white powder that is acacia fiber.

There are no chemicals used in processing the acacia, and every step from the orchards to the processing to our packaging facility is certified organic. Because this is a natural gum with nothing added, and not a synthetic product that is highly processed, the grain size of the finished powder can vary from lot to lot, and even within a single lot. Even though we have specs in place for the grain size to be consistent and the optimum granularity for dissolving easily in liquids, during the packaging process the conveying and vibrating activities can sometimes separate out larger grains of the gum. This can result in a handful of finished packages of Tummy Fiber that have larger or more irregular grain sizes, which can then take longer to dissolve in liquids.

I'm including a list of tips we've come up with over the years to help fully dissolve the acacia in liquids or moist foods.

TIPS TO DISSOLVE TUMMY FIBER

1) It works best if the liquid temperature is cool or lukewarm, not very cold or boiling hot

2) Add Tummy Fiber to an empty cup, mix it with add just enough liquid to dissolve it, then add the remaining liquid

3) Stir with a fork instead of a spoon

4) After stirring initially, let it sit for about 60 seconds, then stir again and any remaining lumps should dissolve

5) Sprinkle on moist foods while stirring it in instead of adding a big spoonful all at once

If you are still unable to use the Tummy Fiber and are at all unhappy, please let us know and we will replace or refund the product.


Hope this helps,
Heather

Heather says:
Hi Ann - I'm so sorry to hear you're still struggling. Please make sure you started with a Tummy Fiber dose of ½ teaspoon twice daily, and that you are gradually increasing that dose by an extra ½ teaspoon every 4 days or so.

Diarrhea typically resolves at 1-3 tablespoons total per day, but you do have to reach those higher doses gradually. If you resolve at a lower dose, just stay there. You can continue to take Imodium with the fiber, that is not a problem at all. As your fiber dose increases and diarrhea resolves, you should be able to transition off the Imodium.

Best,

Heather says:
Hello,

I am so sorry you think the Tummy Fiber is expensive. If you look at the price per gram of Tummy Fiber compared to Metamucil, you will see that we are actually less expensive:

1 Refill Pouch of Tummy Fiber: $16.95 for 16 oz (453 grams) = $0.0374 per gram
2 grams soluble fiber per level teaspoon (out 2.5 grams total weight) - http://www.helpforibs.com/shop/suplmts/acacia.asp
Ingredients: acacia senegal

1 Metamucil Smooth Texture Sugar Free Orange : $12.05* for 10 oz (283.5 grams) = $0.0425 per gram
2 grams soluble fiber per rounded teaspoon (out of 5.4 grams total weight) - http://www.metamucil.com/metamucil-sugarfree-orange-smooth.php
* http://www.vitacost.com/metamucil-smooth-texture-sugar-free
Ingredients: Psyllium Husk, Maltodextrin, Citric Acid, Natural and Artificial Orange Flavor, Aspartame, Yellow 6

I am not sure if this is the specific Metamucil product you are using, but the flavoring and fillers in many Metamucil products can actually trigger IBS symptoms (especially the sugar free products, which contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame). Also these fillers and flavorings make up 2/3 of what you are paying for.

Heather's Tummy Fiber is 100% soluble fiber and is all natural, certified organic, naturally sugar free, tasteless, naturally gluten free, and will not trigger any IBS symptoms such as gas, bloating, pain, cramping, etc. Metamucil is mostly filler ingredients, and the source of fiber in it, psyllium, is only about 2/3 soluble fiber. The remaining 1/3 is insoluble fiber, which can trigger IBS.

You can also stock up to save on the per pouch price and shipping cost by purchasing the Tummy Fiber in bulk: http://www.helpforibs.com/shop/deals/default.asp

Purchasing the Tummy Fiber Bulk Kit will drop the per pouch price down from $16.95 to $16.11. It also knocks the shipping price down from $4.99 for one item to $3.32 per item. Also, if you are in the US, the most you will currently pay for shipping is $9.97 for 3 or more items.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions on the pricing of the Tummy Fiber.

Best,
Joanna

Hello Carol,

Thank you for taking the time to review the product.

If you are prone to heartburn/acid reflux you will want to wait a full hour before eating or drinking anything. I know this can be tough sometimes, but it will really help to make sure the Tummy Tamer does not get stuck in your stomach.

You will know if the Tummy Tamer is stuck in your stomach because you will taste peppermint in the back of your throat.

Taking them too close to meal time can be problematic for people with reflux. HOWEVER! There are some people who have problems with the caps when they wait the full hour before they eat. If you previously took the cap on an empty stomach, and waited an hour before eating, and still had problems, you might be one of those people. In that case, try taking a cap on an empty stomach just 5-10 minutes before eating, and see if that works better for you.

I hope this information was helpful. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best,
Joanna

Hi Rosie - I'm so sorry to hear you are unhappy with the Tummy Fiber. You are of course welcome to return it at any time, for any reason.

Can I ask what dose you started with and what dose you worked up to? It can take starting slowly, gradually increasing, and reaching a dose high enough for your symptoms to see the best results. Sometimes that takes just a week or so but for higher doses it can take several weeks to gradually get there.

It may be easier to use fiber tablets, but they don't have as much fiber and are more expensive. The only drawbacks are mixing this into liquids (it's like making flour thickener for gravy, liquid into the powder or you get lumps) and having to measure it out.

Life Changing Fiber
Finding Heather's website was one of the best things that's ever happened to me. My IBS was getting to a point where I was nearly homebound. Everything I ate made me sick. I started taking an over the counter fiber, which helped a little, but the big warning on the label telling me I would probably choke to death kept me from taking the amount I needed and made me even more of a nervous wreck. I started taking Heather's acacia fiber when I saw that it didn't have choking properties. I got results almost immediately. Over time, I've been able to live much more normally (like most IBS sufferers, I haven't found a permanent solution yet). I can go out to eat more than five feet from my house, and I can take car trips (and even one plane trip) without suffering any problems. Although this isn't a magic powder that will solve IBS, it's the closest thing I've found.

Hi, Elizabeth!
I am so sorry that you are experiencing problems with the Acacia Tummy Fiber and the Peppermint Capsules. I am sure that if you stick with it, and continue using the Fiber, you will see results. It can take a while to build up to a resolving dose.

I've included some helpful information below on how the Tummy Fiber and Peppermint Capsules work, as well as methods for reducing your bloating and gas.

If you decide you do not want to use the Acacia Tummy Fiber/Peppermint Oil Capsules, you can return them opened or unopened for a refund.

Some people need to take a very small dose to start because their bodies are sensitive to fiber. Try taking just 1/4 measuring teaspoon twice a day. It may be that you just need to start at a very low dose.

Taking too much acacia too fast can cause increased gas and bloating. Acacia is one of the lowest gas-forming fibers out there and going slow makes the gas issue totally avoidable. Please be patient because this really does work.

We recommend starting with ½ teaspoon twice a day (daily dose of 1 teaspoon). You can split the daily dose up as many time as you like throughout the day, just divide it by 2 or 3 depending on the frequency you prefer. Try to increase the dose every 4th day or so by a teaspoon (add this to the daily dose). If you get increased gas and bloating by jumping the dose up by a teaspoon, try cutting this in half. Some people with IBS are so sensitive they have to go up at ¼ teaspoons every 4th day. Keep stepping up the dose every 4th day or so until you find a dose that resolves your constipation and/or diarrhea. Constipation is usually resolved with a daily dose of 4-5 tablespoons/day and diarrhea/loose stools usually resolves at a lower dose of 1-3 tablespoons/day. You shouldn’t take more than 5 tbsp/day. The maintenance dose is different for each person depending on their specific symptoms. Dietary changes are often necessary to make lasting changes. In the beginning until you stabilize, it works best to take the acacia before each meal to minimize the effect of trigger foods in the meal and to calm the intestines before the food arrives.

Peppermint is contraindicated for people with GERD/Reflux/chronic heartburn. Many people with IBS often have these conditions, so we worked around it by enteric coating the peppermint oil capsules. This helps them to pass through the stomach without dissolving by making them resistant to the stomach acid. In fact, we doubled the enteric coating on our peppermint caps because we found it helped people with these conditions to be able to use them to manage their IBS without aggravating their upper GI issues.

However, some people with severe GERD/Reflux/chronic heartburn still have problems with the peppermint capsules because they will dissolve in the stomach before reaching the intestines. The antispasmodic effect you want to happen in your intestines will then occur in the stomach and this relaxes the sphincters at the top of the stomach. If this happens, it can lead to heartburn.

There are a few things we have found that help to prevent this from happening:

1) Take the peppermint capsules on an empty stomach an hour before the meal to allow them time to reach the intestines and dissolve before the food arrives. Taking them too close to meal time can be problematic for people with reflux.

2) The peppermint caps should not be taken during or after a meal because the food will block them from reaching the intestines and this could cause them to dissolve in the stomach.

3) Drinking only enough liquid to swallow the capsules seems to help them pass through without dissolving in the stomach. The enteric coating makes them resistant to stomach acid, but they are still water soluble. Limiting the amount of liquid they’ll be floating around in will help them reach their destination.

4) You shouldn’t take them at the same time as any medication (prescription or over-the-counter) designed to lower the stomach acid. Lowering the stomach acid makes the enteric coating less likely to work (remember it is resistant to high acid). For folks who need to take these medications, what we came up with is taking the peppermint caps about an hour before you take the acid lowering/blocking medication. This will give them a better chance of making it down to the intestines where they will dissolve and start to take effect without affecting the upper GI.

Thank you for your review, and I hope that you'll see success with the Tummy Fiber and Peppermint Capsules!

Hi, Marianna!

I am sorry you are not seeing results as quickly as you would like. For the Tummy Fiber Acacia to work properly, it's crucial that you start with a low dose (1/2 teaspoon twice daily) and gradually increase to a dose high enough to resolve constipation (which may be 4-5 tablespoons a day). If you get gas or bloating, that would mean you increased your dose too quickly. It can take several weeks to gradually increase up to the dose you'd likely need to resolve constipation, and unfortunately you can't rush this. Tummy Fiber is not a drug or a laxative so it won't work overnight.

I really feel for the constipation folks, as it takes some patience to start slowly, increase gradually, and eventually get your daily dose up high enough to resolve symptoms. A lower dose can't worsen constipation, but it won't resolve it, either. You may want to start over following these directions and see if you have better luck.

Having the fiber at least twice a day - and you can have it more often - is also key, as you want to keep your gut filled with soluble fiber at all times. That will help prevent cramping and spasms in the first place.

It's also help to review the Five Constipation Frustrations here http://www.helpforibs.com/news/newsletter/060705.html#askheather and, if you've been using laxatives, information on transitioning off them here http://www.helpforibs.com/news/newsletter/06/082206.html#askheather

Hi there,

I am so sorry that the Acacia Tummy Fiber isn’t working well for your constipation issues. I’ve included below some instructions on how to take it to make it work more efficiently. I am sure you’ll see success if you follow our steps on how to find the right dose for you. Acacia Tummy Fiber does not cause Constipation or Diarrhea, but it does take time to find the right dose.

We recommend starting with ½ teaspoon twice a day (daily dose of 1 teaspoon). You can split the daily dose up as many time as you like throughout the day, just divide it by 2 or 3 depending on the frequency you prefer. Try to increase the dose every 4th day or so by a teaspoon (add this to the daily dose). If you get increased gas and bloating by jumping the dose up by a teaspoon, try cutting this in half. Some people with IBS are so sensitive they have to go up at ¼ teaspoons every 4th day. Keep stepping up the dose every 4th day or so until you find a dose that resolves your constipation and/or diarrhea. Constipation is usually resolved with a daily dose of 4-5 tablespoons/day and diarrhea/loose stools usually resolves at a lower dose of 1-3 tablespoons/day. You shouldn’t take more than 5 tbsp/day. The maintenance dose is different for each person depending on their specific symptoms. Dietary changes are often necessary to make lasting changes. In the beginning until you stabilize, it works best to take the acacia before each meal to minimize the effect of trigger foods in the meal and to calm the intestines before the food arrives.

Acacia helps people with diarrhea to have formed bowel movements and people with constipation to have softer and easier to pass bowel movements. People often experience significant improvement within a couple weeks when they make the dietary and fiber changes at the same time; although, constipation does take longer to resolve than diarrhea. It is not uncommon for constipation folks to increase the acacia very slowly because they are more likely to have trouble with painful gas and bloating. It can take 1-2 months to work up to the daily dose of 4-5 tablespoons/day sometimes. It will only make you miserable if you increase the dose too quickly. Important changes are taking place inside the colon as the body adjusts, so just be patient and let your body gently adjust to the acacia. Constipation folks will often need to continue to use whatever methods they were using previously to keep things moving until they are able to work up to the 4 tablespoons/day dose or so. Please don’t stop everything cold turkey and make yourself sick because this will take some time. The overwhelming feedback I hear from people is that once they reach this dose it is a magical experience and they are able to stop relying on the other medications etc they have always needed to have a normal movement at least once a day.

If you do decide that the Acacia fiber is just not working for you, you can return it for a refund to the address below. Please include your name and if you have it, your order number in the package.

Not working well for me
I was very excited to try the Tummy Fiber and very hopeful that it would help me. However, it has not worked for me. First let me tell you that I have been diagnosed with IBS and have also been diagnosed with Gastroparesis. I do not have diarrhea, if anything, I have constipation (or lack of movement since my stomach only empties every 5 hours). I have a very healthy diet and eat very little at a time. When I read on your website that the Tummy Fiber would help with diarrhea OR constipation I was thrilled. I started with 1 teaspoon twice a day. It slowed things down even more, bulked up my stool, actually making my situation worse. And yes, I am trying to follow your soluble, insoluble, stay away from trigger foods plan. I do everything I know to do and nothing helps. I feel so helpless. Nothing works, nothing helps, nothing makes it better. :(

Hi, Melanie!

I'm so sorry to hear you're still struggling with constipation. For how long have you been taking the Tummy Fiber? Are you currently taking 2 teaspoons a day? Typically, a resolving dose for individuals suffering from constipation will fall between 3 and 5 tablespoons. As the Tummy Fiber will not cause constipation or diarrhea, it may be the case that you need to reach a higher dose before experiencing symptom relief. I would recommend continuing with the Tummy Fiber and gradually increasing your dose by 1/2 to 1 teaspoon every 4 to 5 days. I think, as your daily dose increases, you will begin to see positive results. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you further or if you have any additional questions.

I feel normal again
I started with 1/2 teaspoon twice a day dose (once in the morning and then after dinner) and within the first week I was starting to become regular and noticing a lot less gas. I tried to up the dose gradually but I think it may have been too much because I had diarrhea, unless that was something unrelated. I stayed at the 1/2 teaspoon dose and it keeps me regular but would like to increase it to help a little more with the constipation. I missed a dose or two during the past week and I had horrible trapped gas pains...needless to say I will not miss a dose again! I have had gastric bypass surgery and this stuff really helps me with controlling gas, because its a big problem afterwards.

Very gentle
After several bouts of Diverticulitis, I was told I needed to take supplemental fiber. After using several other fibers which caused severe cramping and bloating, I decided to try your Tummy Fiber. I started very slowly and increased my dosage over the last few weeks. It's very gentle to digest, no bloating and it dissolves easily with no after taste. I'm impressed and will be ordering more in the future.

Hi, Kevin!

I'm so sorry to hear you haven't noticed a difference with the Tummy Fiber. Since it's important to start at a very low dose (1 teaspoon) and gradually increase by 1/2 to 1 teaspoon every 4 to 5 days, it can take several weeks for you to notice any difference. I would be happy to discuss this with you further. However, if you are completely unhappy with the product, feel free to return it and we'd be happy to refund you.

Heather says: Feedback Rating
Hi Carol - I am so sorry to hear this. There should be no way that the Tummy Fiber can cause diarrhea. Soluble fiber can only help both diarrhea and constipation.

Did you start at a dose of ½ teaspoon twice daily and gradually increase? Most folks need to work up to about 2 or 3 tablespoons per day for the best results. But, some people do stabilize at a lower dose, and chronic constipation tends to take 4-5 tablespoons per day.

What you don't want is to just stay at ½ teaspoon twice a day, as that isn't enough to do anything for you. It's just a beginning dose to get your gut used to an increase in fiber. You also want to increase gradually, not suddenly or drastically increase your dose and overwhelm your gut.

Please let me know if you have any questions and would like more help with your dosage. You are also welcome to simply return the Tummy Fiber if you can't use it.

Best,
Heather

Speed of Delivery
Customer Service
Heather says:
Hi Chris,

Are you talking about an allergy to acacia trees? There shouldn't be a connection between an allergy to acacia pollen or leaves and the acacia fiber. We do have folks allergic to acacia trees who do fine with the acacia fiber. The fiber is actually only produced by two specific species of acacia trees, which only grow in Africa. The fiber comes from a gum that these trees produce (sort of like maple syrup) when the temperature hits a certain height.

Acacia fiber is also known as gum arabic. A gum allergy is quite rare. If you are allergic to gum arabic, or to gums in general (guar gum, locust bean gum, etc.) then you'd want to avoid acacia fiber.

Hope this helps,
Heather

Heather says: Feedback Rating
Hello Andrea,

I am so sorry you experienced constipation. The Tummy Fiber will not actually cause constipation, but will help to resolve bowel motility issues. I would recommend trying the Tummy Fiber Acacia Senegal one more time.

Please make sure you start with a low dose and gradually increase to a higher resolving does. Taking too much acacia too fast can cause increased gas and bloating. Acacia is one of the lowest gas-forming fibers out there and going slow makes the gas issue totally avoidable. Please be patient because this really does work.

We recommend starting with ½ teaspoon twice a day (daily dose of 1 teaspoon). You can split the daily dose up as many time as you like throughout the day, just divide it by 2 or 3 depending on the frequency you prefer. Try to increase the dose every 4th day or so by a teaspoon (add this to the daily dose). If you get increased gas and bloating by jumping the dose up by a teaspoon, try cutting this in half. Some people with IBS are so sensitive they have to go up at ¼ teaspoons every 4th day. Keep stepping up the dose every 4th day or so until you find a dose that resolves your constipation and/or diarrhea. Constipation is usually resolved with a daily dose of 4-5 tablespoons/day and diarrhea/loose stools usually resolves at a lower dose of 1-3 tablespoons/day. You shouldn't take more than 5 tbsp/day. The maintenance dose is different for each person depending on their specific symptoms. Dietary changes are often necessary to make lasting changes. In the beginning until you stabilize, it works best to take the acacia before each meal to minimize the effect of trigger foods in the meal and to calm the intestines before the food arrives.

If you find the Tummy Fiber is still not working well for you, please feel free to return it for a full refund. If you have any questions on the products, do not hesitate to contact us.

Best,

Heather says: Feedback Rating
Hi Robert - I'm so sorry your results with the Tummy Fiber have faded a bit. That usually means you simply need to gradually increase your dose a bit higher. Sometimes people stabilize at a certain dose, and then something comes along that upsets their gut, and they need to raise their Tummy Fiber dose to get back on track. That's okay, the fiber is flexible that way, so you can adjust your dose depending on how you're doing. Just make sure you increase your dose gradually, maybe by an extra teaspoon every 4 days or so.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

Speed of Delivery
Customer Service
Heather says: Feedback Rating
Hi Maureen - For the Tummy Fiber Acacia to work properly, it's crucial that you start with a low dose (1/2 teaspoon twice daily) and gradually increase to a dose high enough to resolve constipation (which may be 4-5 tablespoons a day). It can take several weeks to gradually increase up to the dose you'd likely need to resolve constipation, and unfortunately you can't rush this. Tummy Fiber is not a drug or a laxative so it won't work overnight. Two tablespoons per day is far too high a dose to start with. This will just overload your gut with fiber and you won't get results. Please drop your dose back down to just 1 teaspoon twice daily, and increase by just an extra ½ teaspoon to one dose every four days or so.

I really feel for the constipation folks, as it takes some patience to start slowly, increase gradually, and eventually get your daily dose up high enough to resolve symptoms. A lower dose can't worsen constipation, but it won't resolve it, either.

It's also help to review the Five Constipation Frustrations here http://www.helpforibs.com/news/newsletter/060705.html#askheather and, if you've been using laxatives, information on transitioning off them here http://www.helpforibs.com/news/newsletter/06/082206.html#askheather

Purchsing Tummy Fiber
First off I would like to say that my IBS was not as horrible as some of the cases I have heard about. It would hit me about twice a month with not to much pain, but I needed to be very near a bathroom when it did hit. The tummy fiber has both reduced the amount it has happened, and lessened the severity when it does. Also episodes dont last as long now. Since I am not a severe case I take about a tablespoon twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. One of the best benefits is how regular and "healthy" my bowel movements are now even when I do not have any episodes. I can travel and fly with a lot more confidence now! I like that this is a preventative and natural remedy, rather than having an uneducated doctor tell cutting me a prescription for some pills after the fact. Thank you for thinking of us Heather.

I do not have IBS - but I am chronically constipated
Various doctors over the years have simply told me to eat more fiber, take various softners and fiber suppliments... none of which have ever done much for me. A nurse practitioner told my that I have a "hypotonic colon" so for whatever reason, my body takes out more water than it should. The past year has been very stressful for me, my problem flared up and I had been unable to bring it back under control as before. I eat mainly vegetarian anyways, drink plenty of water, walk my dog, do everything they say that you are supposed to do. A friend of mine with IBS told me about your site. I am now taking 24g of your Acacia Tummy Fiber every day and am happier with my gut than I have been in the past year. None of the fiber at stores has ever helped, I have never been able to take this amount without extreme gassiness. Your fiber is organic, doesn't gas me up and it works. I love it, it has changed my life. I can now eat the occasional bit of cheese while out with friends, eat a hamburger on occasion, basically feel like a normal person again. (Nothing in excess mind you, but enough). Thank you so very much.

problems have all but disappeared
Your information in IBS has been very helpful to me. I also ordered the Acacia for my aunt who has suffered terribly with IBS (possibly IBD). Since she stared using the Acacia regularly, her problems have all but disappeared. Thank you so much. My aunt has mentioned to me numerous times how well the Acacia worked for her. Her problems were so severe that she was having to take cortisone enemas(!) and they weren't helping. It's funny, because I mentioned to my doctor that I was making some dietary changes to help with my IBS and she told me that research had proven that diet didn't make any difference with IBS. How wrong she was.

I was chronically constipated for years, but now I rarely have a problem
I have been taking the Tummy Fiber for some months now and have noticed a big improvement in my bowel function. I was chronically constipated for years, but now I rarely have a problem. Thanks so much.

I wanted to tell you how happy I am now
I found your website in February - ever since then, I've been reading up on others' experiences, following the diet, trying all your recipes, and taking the Acacia Tummy Fiber every day. I wanted to tell you how happy I am now, in so many ways, in comparison to a year ago! I work as the Production Editor for Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, a journal from which you regularly feature excerpts in your newsletters. Basically, I receive the hard copy manuscripts and carry them through the production process, until the journal appears on the shelf twice a month. Isn't it interesting, though, that for all the articles I read about IBS, IBD and Crohn's disease every month in my journal, your website is far more practical for a good quality of life for all of us sufferers out there! Maybe some day they'll come up with a miracle pill with no evident side effects - until then, I'll stick to your good advice.
