http://www.naturalne...r_caffeine.html This link is to an article on the inflammation reducing ability of an herbal tea. Thought someone might like to read it--says it can kill bowel cancer cells.

Great article. i'm a firm believer in teas...when my ibs-d begins to act up...i quickly run to 'pau d'arco' tea. It makes all 'right with the world' again :).

I'm all for things that work for anybody with bowel problems,IBS or IBDs and tea has been known to help quite a few people with those conditions but i cannot see how anybody can claim to say it kills bowel cancer cells without exhaustive studies into its workings.If it was proven to 'kill bowel cancer cells' doctors would be writing prescriptions for it left right and centre i'd imagine.
Diagnosed originally with microscopic colitis in 1992 but no inflammation detected on subsequent colonoscopies,so IBS diagnosed. Hoping to share my personal opinions and experiences to help others and become more aware myself. No medical training at all.

Thanks for the link BQ.I was originally diagnosed with microscopic colitis and still believe that that is what I still have despite negative biopsies.I believe this may apply to lots of other sufferers on here and believe anti inflammatories should be one course of treatment for IBS D patients in particular.http://www.wjgnet.com/1007-9327/11/6409.pdfThis is more research on IBS and inflammation.Just one morehttp://ezinearticles.com/?Your-Irritable-Bowel-Syndrome-%28IBS%29-May-Be-Misdiagnosed-Or-Be-Undiagnosed-Colitis&id=455365

On the topic of inflammation. Someone suggested I try aloe vera. Anyone had any luck with it? I am on day three and my flare up seems to be calming down. But do not know if it could be just calming down on its own or if the aloe vera is helping to speed up the recovery.I drink mate tea. Luv it but moreso for its flavor. And it is not as laxative as coffee.

I hear all sorts of things about aloe for inflammation, but I'd be careful about ingesting it. People say it's good for ibs and forget to say the constipation kind. It is used as a laxative, so be careful.
