I can’t explain how grateful i am to have found this post. I definitely feel less alone, in pain and ‘digestive discomfort’ due to the sweltering South African summer. Thank you for helping me feel less alone.
Thank you so much. I’m still open to anymore suggestions
I like your idea alot. I can handle the PB&J, thankfully. If you do well with them normally, I can’t think of a more compact, easy alternative. Hopefully, others will chime in with their thoughts. Good luck and let us know how it goes. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
Hi, Debbie. I’m sorry to hear you are experiencing this particularly difficult aspect of IBS right now. I believe it to be rather common for us. If it’s any consolation, it is very possible to move through it and get back to a kind of equilibrium. Thank you for sharing and I hope today is a good one for you. -Todd,…
I’ve hand a little luck with 1MD & VSL#3 probiotics. Either is available on line. I take one in am then use a digestive enzyme before meals. It helps somewhat. Does not cure symptoms. Hope this helps you
This is where I am right now. I’m lucky if I eat one small meal a day. Even then I’m not retaining. B12 is low. Been really hard to focus at work
A teaspoon of raw honey…..do you take it by itself or can you use it in tea on with pb sandwich? Lol. Not sure I could get it down on its own.
I’m really glad to hear you are having such good luck with the raw honey. I actually took your recommendation and have been seeing some improvement myself. It would be nice if one thing worked for everyone, but unfortunately, not generally the case with IBS. As usual, we appreciate your contributions to the community and I hope…
We might be twin souls. I have been 94% cured by a tsp of raw honey daily followed by an Immodim gel cap. This is after trying all the expensive nothing burgers – Dexilante, Metamucil, Olyster – prescribed by GI specialist. MDs here don’t seem to understand h pylori, which is most often the cause of a stomach complaint like ours, according to a fb…
Thanks, Idonne for being such a supportive member of the community. We appreciate you. Hope you are well today. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
This was me until I had the good fortune of befriending an AZ shrink at fb. He told me about the h pylori bacteria most stomach complaints like IBS and that New Zealand studies showed a teaspoon of raw honey daily typically killed it in about a week. Ha, I thought. Way too easy. I am not anyone with much faith in ‘alternative’ cures but worth a…
Hi @AbigailF., I have used suppositories in the past and found they did not help in anyway with bloating or gas. Was using for constipation reason. As for bloating and gas, I have found that food combining and low fodmap choices has helped me. Not as bloated, I can honestly say there are days that my stomach is flat.
May take time to notice a…
I’m sorry to hear you are having bad luck with the suppositories. I haven’t had this particular problem, but have struggled with rather severe bloating issues. My doctor was able to prescribe medication that helped a good deal. I would have a conversation with the doctor, if you haven’t already. Perhaps there is an alternative…
