Hi Todd, it’s nice to hear from you. I suffer from an illness called collagenous microscopic colitis, which gives the same symptoms as IBS accompagnied by the chronic fatigue symptom. It’s a Real Mess.
Anyhow we have to find the best way to cope with it without stressing ourselves too much.

I to do this @tmholland . Ive actually found it helpful to figure out triggers as well as making sure I’m eating enough. I’ve changed it around this year to make sure I’m getting enough of the required daily servings of fruits, vegetables, meats etc.

Oh, I feel your pain. Have you tried juicing celery juice? It took my heart burn away. Also, papya enzymes help a lot and are a better natural alternative to Tums.

This is amazing to hear. I too saw an integrated health doctor and had much success with him. I’m so thankful I reached out.

I wish you continued good health!
