I’ve had moderate-to-mild PI IBS for about 18 months now, after getting sick on a cruise, and things are finally starting to improve for me. While I can’t say for sure why, one possibility is a plant-based tonic I’ve been taking twice a day for the past four months. I ordinarily wouldn’t have tried something like this but my wife was an old classmate of one of the founders of the company that makes this stuff (called NatriQuell) and he thought it would help. Before taking it, I went through the treatment that my GI ordered, which was basically an antibiotic drug and probiotics. If anything, the antibiotic seemed to make things worse. Since I wasn’t getting better and my wife’s friend graciously sent me a few bottles of NatriQuell, I thought I’d give it a shot.
Apparently NatriQuell takes several months to have an effect and the change is gradual. A month ago I had a mild recurrence of my old symptoms (diarrhea and bloating) but it lasted only a few days. Overall, I’m feeling much better. My poop is still not as well formed as it was before I got sick, but it’s solid now, I go only once a day, and I no longer have cramps and bloating. I’m still taking the probiotics and Vitamin D as well so I’m by no means a scientific study on NatriQuell. However, I thought I would share this with others in case it can be of some help.

I'm not exactly sure what's in it. It says there is a propriety blend of phytobiologic life drops (whatever that is) and extracts from pomegranates and green tea, along with some preservative. You can check the NatriQuell web site (www.natriquell.com) for more information.
PI = Post infectious. My IBS started after getting food poisoning on a ship.
