Green lentils

Posted by jaumeb in jaumeb's Blog, 24 April 2016 · 45 views

One week ago I introduced green lentils. I soak them in water with some lemon juice for 12 hours before cooking. To my surprise they seem to help with my symptoms. I am not saying that I am symptom free, what I mean is that things were worse before introducing the lentils.

My very long story and where I am today (aka there is hope)

Posted by Doite in Doite's Blog, 18 November 2015 · 960 views

I'll start with the history of my IBS. It's rather depressing like so many other IBS stories but it's honest so there's that. I was maybe 15 or 16 when I realized I had IBS. I'd never even heard of it before. I remember I'd come down with what I thought was gastro, but now I guess could have just been my IBS welcome package. Feeling better I went back to...

You would think at the age of 24 the last thing i'd be worrying about is where the nearest bathroom is, do I have Imodium in my bag, have I remembered my buscopan? Unfortunatley this is my reality. I'm fortunate enough to have been having a good spell over the summer up until now and my IBS is in no way the worst a person could have it but it's still some...

In 2014, we discovered that I have endometriosis but that in itself didn't give me the a...


best results?

Posted by shibena in Miracle for IBS d, 27 September 2015 · 1,297 views

i eliminatedd wheat - and switched to white flour. 
this helped a lot. now realise the junk fibre in the wheat is the cause of ibs-d.
try it - if it works for you, i am happy.
must have 2-3 slices of white bread or roti everyday . this stabilises the condition .
avoid indigestible fibre like the plague
good luck...
