      Hello Jamsheed I’m afraid I can’t tell you over the internet what is reposible for your husbands health issues. If he is struggling to digest food, he could try some herbal bitters before eating but unexplained weight loss can also be something that needs to be reported to your doctor.

      Hello Jamsheed Info your husband increases his intake of brown rice, beans and pulses, he should find the constipation eases over a few days. Make sure he drinks lots of water every day too. We also make a remedy called Linoforce which is more powerful and can be taken for short periods of time.

      Hello Sandra The article mentions a bitter herb called Yarrow which is found in our Yarrow complex. Other herbs in there help cramping and flatulence so should be helpful to you.
