I was just wondering, if you use the olive oil, how much would you use. Also, if you use it, should you stop using the caltrate? Does anyone prefer one over the other? Thanks for help.

I take 2 Tablespoons of 100% Pure Olive Oil/Extra Light on an empty stomach. This is the only therapy that works on my system. I only have C NOT D. So if you onlyhave D, you probably wouldn't use the Olive Oil therapy, this would be forpeople who only have C.I have tried herbs, prescription laxatives,over the counter laxatives, every possibletherapy you can imagine and they all havebeen a BIG WASTE of my time. They do not work over the long period of time usually.Also, this Olive Oil therapy is commonlyused in Europe, so I would suggest if awhole continent is using this therapy,I would say they are doing something right. They have done several ClinicalStudies on Olive Oil by Medical Doctors in Europe.I would always consult your GI Doctorregarding the Caltrate.

Hi Julia. Do you just take the olive oil straight or what? My tummy aches at just the thought of it My stomach or bowel stays torn up. It's totally aggravating. I have C and do alternate between that and D. I feel that if I could just keep things going, it wouldn't be so bad for the gas and such. I've tried everything also, nothing works for me either. If it does, then it ends up tearing up the belly so badly that I have to give it up eventually. My belly is HIGHLY sensitive. Thanks, ronty------------------C/D

Hi Ronty93!!!I do take the 100% Pure Olive Oil straight up at bedtime. But, if you can't standthe taste straight up, pour it on chickenor fish at dinner. The 100% Pure OliveOil works as a food digestive aid inthe gastrointestinal system.I have to take a thryoid prescription, soI take the Olive Oil at least 12 hours before I take my prescription medication.Also, I would mention this to your GI Doctor.My GI Doctor has all her IBS patients on this formula and she is a main streamdoctor. She is excellent/brilliant andall her patients thinks she is the best.My stomach is extreme sensitive, so Iknow what you are going through. MyIBS attacks always seemed the worst inthe middle of the night. Vomiting/Nausea,Gastric Pain that felt like a 7.1 earthquakehad hit and the volcano was about toerupt. Always running to the bathroomin the middle of the night can become apain in the neck. So, that is why I finally had to do somethingthat would regulate my gastrointestinal system. I couldn't take it anymore andthat was how I discovered that Olive Oilis the stablizing force behind the gastrointestinal system. This neutralizesthe acids in the stomach and eliminatesall the symptoms.Good Luck!!!

Ronty93, if you can take a squeezed part of a lemon over each tablespoon of olive oil it's not as bad. Then chase it down with a glass of water. YUM!!Also Julia, do you know if it would hurt to take more than 2 TBS? The first night worked great but the second night did nothing.

Research by the International Olive Oil Council ( IOOC) suggests that olive oil is excellent for the digestive system, brain activity and bone mineralization. It protects against gallstones and stomach ulcers and helps relieve minor constipation. Studies also show that olive oil reduces the rate of cardiovascular illness, by lowering cholesterol levels as effectively as a low fat diet, without harming the arteries. It is effective in delaying the human aging metabolism, and is a positive factor in a child's body growth during the formative years.On 1-18-95 The Journal of the National Cancer Institute reported that olive oil offers strong protection in the fight against breast cancer.charlie

Despite all the negative things you hear about wheat Nabisco's Wheat n Bran, those are the only 2 ingriedents, really is the best source of fiber for me. I put a couple a tbls. of pure olive oil over it and put it in the micro wave to sort of toast it. I eat it as a snack food. I really does help. Guess it is the fiber and the oil. Plus I drink lots of water. Really helps with my C. Wonder if that was why we use to get caster oil as kids??. Most of you are to young to remember that tho....BLAH!!!------------------ Don't make ME come down there!!. GOD

I HAVE TO BE CHARY IN MY USE OF OLIVE OIL. OVER 1-2 TEASPOONS IN ONE DAY, AND THE NEXT FEW DAYS I HAVE ONE OR MORE PAINFUL LUMPS IN MY CHIN, DOWN DEEP IN THE SKIN. FEEL LIKE PIMPLES, BUT SOME OF THEM NEVER REACH THE SURFACE.

jd44:Check with your Doctor. It probably hasnothing to do with the Olive Oil.Stop taking the Olive Oil, if you thinkthis is a reaction.Always, check with your GI Doctor. Maybeyou can't take Olive Oil.

Julia41Should olive oil always be taken on a empty stomach or can it be taken an hour after or with food. If taken daily will it cause weight gain?

I am going to take the olive oil tonight. I am just wondering if it has to be taken for several nights in order to get some effect? I will post tomorrow on whether I notice any difference. I will say though, that I read someplace on the web that 1-2 ounces of olive oil should be taken as a laxative. But I am only going to take 2 tablespoons tonight and see what happens. Don't think I could choke down 1-2 ounces anyway. Wish me luck! ------------------Wishing for a cure for IBS.FOS

Hi Kaydee:I usually take the 100% Pure Olive Oil onan empty stomach. I do pour it onchicken or fish at dinner and as long as you get the Olive Oil into your system this will help the IBS C symptoms.Make sure you take it on a daily basis.Also, check with your doctor to make surethat you do not have any interactions with the Olive Oil. If you do have anyinteractions, stop taking the Olive Oiltherapy immediately. My GI Doctor and Primary Care Doctors bothknow that I am taking Olive Oil as a therapyfor the IBS symptoms. My GI Doctor actuallyis giving this therapy to her IBS patientswith C, this was after I told her about thetherapy. She happens to be beyond excellent/brilliant Gastrointestinal Doctor. If I mightsay so myself. The weight gain would depend on your metabolism. I never gained weight becauseof the Olive Oil.
