Onions & garlic for chicken broth/IBS diagnosis
Posted 22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM
I am new in this post. I am in a journey to finding out the root cause or causes for my GI issues. So far, I was diagnosed with silent reflux and functional dyspepsia. I am not on PPI's (I used to), but I stopped because I have osteoporosis. I changed GI doctor who seems more holistic than my last one. So he has ordered an stomach emptying scan next week. My reflux has gotten so much better with lifestyle changes but not the dyspepsia. In addition, to all of this I have constipation & bloating; and also suspect some histamine intolerance. My first doc told me that he couldn't diagnose IBS. How do you diagnose it? or how did you know you had IBS? What tests did you take to rule out IBS? I have suffered from intermittent constipation for a long time, but I never pinned it to IBS until much later in my life. I am taking Magnesium Citrate at night and sometimes Miralax, and that sometimes helps; but other times it doesn't. Anyway, I am experimenting with homemade chicken broth. I hear is good to repair the gut; but I understand onions and garlic is a nono with IBS? How can I give my broth flavor? Is there any other alternatives to onion and garlic? thank you

I cannot answer all your questions but I eat a lot of onions and garlic for my IBS-C and I feel it definitely helps me go.
