Youtube Videos and Motivation

Posted by Gena in Gena's Blog, 23 November 2015 · 0 views

Hello lovelies!
So I have been on my youtube channel under the name genaibs but since the month of October I have had a hard time making videos. It is not for lack of content, as you all know, every day is an adventure, it is more so for the intensity of my stomach pain, nausea and mental comprehension and determination. 
I am doing better in...


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

Posted by Doite in Doite's Blog, 18 November 2015 · 0 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...

Inclined bed therapy

Posted by jaumeb in jaumeb's Blog, 30 October 2015 · 22 views

Inclined bed therapy can be really useful to those suffering from GERD at night. Will it help with other ailments? I decided to rise the top of the bed two inches. This last night I didn't wake up to pee as I usually do. And I was surprised of the little volume in my first morning pee.

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...

Bathroom SOS

Posted by jjd1999 in jjd1999's Blog, 07 October 2015 · 307 views

I am new to this site, but not to IBS. I joined this site for support and a way to vent my struggles when needed. Today is one of those days!! I arrived at work early this morning (I work 5am to 1pm) to find that our patient bathroom was not working and that the employee bathroom was no where near working 100%. This alone gave me major anxiety knowing tha...

My name's Angie. I'm new to this site (obviously.) Basically, I've spent the last 8 years trying to figure out why I have such painful stomach pains that are accompanied by bloating, constipation, diarrhoea as well as various other symptoms. 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 · 953 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...

A Solution for GERD

Posted by msg in msg's Blog, 14 July 2015 · 3,051 views

For the last 2 years, I had been getting thick phlegm accumulated in my throat during my sleep.  Sometimes, I would have had to get up and go to the bathroom to clear it.  In the mornings, the phlegm would come out in a dark brown color.  Sometimes, I had bad breath that would have filled out the bedroom.
I originally thought it had...
