Homeopathy is the only cure for IBS!

Your symptoms match those of Anacardium.....so I would suggest that you continue it for some time. If you notice any effect, the dosage and potency can be adjusted based on that. One point I can suggest is that if your IBS is old (say more than 6 months) and the "Eating temporarily relieves all symptioms" feature is very pronounced; then after few days with 30c, you may use the 200c - not for too long say 4-5 days to see how it behaves. Take one or max two doses of that per day - morning and evening.
Can you mention, after eating when sysmptoms go away, how long does it take to come back and whether it comes back suddenly or gradually and what is the peak time of the discomfort after eating - say 0.5 hr or 2 hrs or later than that, etc.
Another point that I'll mention is that the headache sysmtom that you have is very typical. There is a medicine called Homarus which has it as the main symptom along with IBS. But its an infrequently used medicine applied only for very specific cases. So I would suggest you continue with the Anacardium but study about Homarus as the next option.

Thanks so much. The headaches are my main symptom. Instead of feeling in my rectum that I have to go to the bathroom, I have the sensation over my eye. It's very odd. Eating sometimes makes the head pain hurt a bit less but only for about 20 minutes or so.

Before any of you even consider this madness called homeopathy -
Beware. Homeopaths have not yet proven the effectiveness of their craft (I would not call it medicine though).
Such concoctions do not perform any better than placebos. Do some unbiased research on google and by talking
to good doctors. I am sure you will come to the same conclusion.
Everytime I find the key to success, some IDIOT changes the lock.

I personally think that the important point in this regard is whether I get any benefit or not. Theory doesn't matter that much.....after all many of us have undergone numerous tests but no definite cause is found for our IBS. That does not mean we don't have this illness because we feel it all the time.
I had polyp (tumor-like growth) in my nostrils during childhood.....underwent surgery twice and it came back. I had serious difficulty breathing and used to take in air through my mouth instead of nose. Then I underwent homeopathic treatment for almost one year and the polyp gradually shrank and eventually disappeared. That was 1987 and it has not come back since then. You can believe me as I am not selling anything here and don't intend to either......can even tell you the medicine that was used....Sangunaria 200.
That developed my belief in homeopathy......unfortunately many years have passed and the doctor who had treated me has passed away. So I cannot go to him anymore and it is very difficult to get good homeo doctors.
Just sharing my experience.....final decision is with the respective person\s.
