Hello Karl
Thank you for bringing this wonderful product to market.
I am 67 Yo and have suffered with autoimmune disease manifesting in Depression, Lupus and Parkinson’s Disease (at least) for many years.
I have studied and worked very hard at regaining good health.
A few years ago I changed to a Paleo diet and started taking (relatively) high dose probiotics. Some benefits ensued however I was not able to clear the (lupus) rash from my face.
(I have a rash that comes and goes according to how well my digestive system is working on any given day. I get a health report every morning when I look in the mirror to shave…and then know what to expect for the day.) And I could never really say I had good health back.
I purchased four rounds of Elixa (two for myself and two for my partner) and completed taking those ten days ago.
These past few days I have been amazed at how the skin on my face and hands appears a lot more healthy and the rash on my face is abating – in fact the rash is almost completely gone…each morning the health report now looks very encouraging.
This reflects the comfort I am feeling in my gut since taking Elixa and the massive improvement to my bowl movements – becoming much more regulated. Also the Parkinson’s shakes that had improved markedly on a Paleo diet but have never completely gone appear to be disappearing altogether…
From my research and personal experiences it appears to me my autoimmune diseases have stemmed from a breakdown of my gut lining (most likely resulting in leaky gut).
My research also indicates one cause of my gut lining breakdown may be from the dearth of my microbiome and in particular the demise of Butyrate producing microbes.
I am wondering if you may have time to give a comment as to whether Elixa already includes microbes that help re-establish short chain fatty acids, specifically Butyrate – if not do you intend to include them down the track?
Again, thank you so much for your skill in producing Elixa and bringing it to market.
Kind regards

PS: My partner is absolutely chuffed. Since taking Elixa the chicken skin beneath her chin on her neck has pretty much disappeared…

Elixa has helped me to recover from life-long insomnia, which started getting particularly bad in August 2015, keeping me awake for 3-4 days at a time and only allowing for short naps in between. While I had always had trouble sleeping, the issue became so severe last year that I decided to follow my doctor’s recommendation to try prescription medication. Unfortunately, after trying two different drugs I discovered that the medication had no effect; while it made me even more tired than I already was from the insomnia, I still could not sleep. 

In early October, I came across Elixa on Richard Nikoley’s blog and decided take a course to improve my general health. It did not occur to me at the time that the probiotic could help me with my insomnia. And yet it did: within three days of starting my first 24-day course of Elixa I was able to have a full night of sleep for the first time in several months. Frankly, I had not realised that it was Elixa that did it until I read that most people notice the effect about 72 hours after starting the course. That explained why my insomnia went away so unexpectedly and without any medical treatment. I have since taken several more courses of Elixa, and each time I have experienced improved sleep, both while taking Elixa and for several months after completion.

Among other benefits, I have experienced better digestion and more regular bowel movements. I am now able to eat large quantities of fibre with no digestive discomfort. I also like to take a 6-day course of Elixa with me when I travel, as it seems to protect me from the common cold and help me to overcome jet lag much faster. I normally start taking it 2-3 days before my flight.

I try to avoid taking Elixa during a particularly busy time at work, however, as it tends to make me very calm (not sleepy, just calm and relaxed) and reluctant to subject myself to stress. Other than that, I have not experienced anything but great benefits from taking this product.

Dear Mr. Seddon:

First, I would like to say how much Elixa has helped my husband. For all of the 28 years of our married life, he has only had Type 1 Bristol Stool Chart stools. Also, he has had several colorectal polyps removed during each of the 3 colonoscopies he has had.  This is despite having a very “clean” diet. After only one 6 day course of Elixa several months ago, however, all of his stools are now Type 4. We are very impressed with the difference.

Hi Karl

Thank you for going the extra mile with my order.
I just want you to know that Elixa has been life changing for me. I am 58 years old and have metabolic disorder. This will be the third time this year I’ve done a 24 day course.  Each time I recover a new level of health.
Thanks for an exemplary product!

I’m still eczema free 1 year later.  If I feel a tingle, just do a 6 day.  No more supplements needed.

Could not be more appreciative!

My results are nothing short of a miracle so I’m happy to help in any way I can.  Spread the love.


I’ve eliminated all other supplements to the tune of $400 a month.

Hi, both my wife and I started Elixa about 120 days ago and have had great results. My wife has had unbelievable results. She has been on 40 mg of Nexium for the past 9 years. In the past she has tried to reduce her dosage of Nexium with horrible results. Since starting Elixa, she reduced her dosage from 40mg to 20mg and 3 weeks ago totally stop taking Nexium with no adverse effects, Needless to say, we are both thrilled with the results we have experienced with Elixa.

Best Regards,

Marc and Maurine

Hello Karl.  My husband, Marc, wrote you about my ability to wean off Nexium 40 mg/day (2wks & 1 day so far), which I’ve never been able to do.  I held off writing you about my results because I wanted to get to 3 months or longer before sharing. Meanwhile, I am thrilled to avoid the daily purple pill & the possible long-term health consequences from taking it.  In the past 2 weeks, I have had a little nausea, but I even had occasional  nausea when I was on Nexium.  Not sure why and am hoping it will go away over time.  I will choose to live with a little nausea over taking Nexium.

Meanwhile, here’s some history.  Growing up, I rarely experienced typical GERD/heartburn & didn’t have a stomach ulcer.  As a young kid, I thought I was born with really bad allergies, a very sensitive stomach, and fatigue.  So, I took lots of allergy meds, antidiarrheals, and then Mucinex in later years for heavy chest congestion & mucous in my throat.  In 2007, I got tired of feeling so sick and tired, and was finally diagnosed with the LPR type of Reflux by an Otolaryngologist & then had an upper endoscopy later on.  Once I began taking Nexium, I started feeling wonderful & rarely ever had to take allergy, antidiarrheals or Mucinex meds.  However, I also significantly adjusted my diet and stopped eating the usual trigger foods like tomatoes, citrus, chocolate, garlic, onions, and limit yogurt (use Lactaid pills) as I’m lactose intolerant.  I still drink a touch of coffee but even less so the past couple of weeks because I want to optimize Elixa success. 

With the continuing news of possible bad consequences with long-term use of Nexium, I met with different gastroenterologists over the past few years to try to wean off the PPI.  I never succeeded even for a day with reducing Nexium to 20 mgs.  The docs didn’t like the surgeries available to fix reflux because they do not seem to be successful long term & may have some bad consequences. 

We tell our family and friends about Elixa if they have any stomach or related problems.  I will continue to share my results with you, and am so VERY happy that Elixa exists!  Thank you. 


Karl, happy to help & you may use my name as u like. Wanted to let u know too that avoiding citric acid & sodas are also really important. I never knew that until reading dr Jamie kaufmanns book, dropping acid.

I’m enjoying another beautiful day, feeling well, and am so happy to be off that purple pill. Thank you!

Well it’s a condition called seborrheic  dermatitis, an easier term would be dandruff of the skin. I was getting dry painful red patches around my face that were just awful. It wasn’t dry skin so I did more and more research and found that it could be caused by bad bacteria in your gut. So I researched probiotics and heard it could help the condition but the ones at the store just weren’t strong enough. That’s when I came across elixa and how powerful it is along with the great reviews that came with it. So I gave it a shot and after 3 days I noticed a drastic improvement my face was smoother and less red and after the 6 days it was about 80% gone I couldn’t believe it. Now every 3-4 months I take elixa to keep my condition at bay.
