Mint teas for symptoms reduction?

I had a relatively better morning/mid day after consuming morracin mint tea with honey after consuming breakfast, I'm predominantly IBS C with alot of flatulence and aweful cramping/burning lower abdominal pain that isn't relieved by anything. Altering my diet has proven uncessful, and yes I've had a full colonsopy with nothing to be found, stool tests as well to rule out parasites or infection.
The "Mint" thing is nothing new to alot of you, but was wondering if anyone has noticed a dramatic change in discomfort after trying mint tea or pills, I might pursue obtaining pure mint oil and see if it really helps.

  1. I'm going to share a couple of articles/discussions that talk about mint tea or peppermint oil:,,,, I personally like peppermint tea as well but have never noticed any drastic improvements. Hope this helps, Karina (team member)

    1. What about "Tylenol" for the discomfort and pain, I really don't want to get on prescription medication and Iboprofen doesn't really do anything but constipate me more. Tylenol is recommended and seems to maybe help a little but nothing drastic as of yet. Anyways thanks for the links I appreciate it alot.

      1. Always best to discuss with your doctor regarding the best plan of action to manage pain. In addition to speaking with your doctor, this article may be helpful: Wishing you some relief ahead. Best, Kelly, Team Member
