  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi All, I was recently diagnosed with SIBO. My doctor recommend 2 weeks of Rifaximin, followed by 6 weeks of Symprove - this probiotic - https://www.symprove.com/ However, on the Symprove website it says that one can take antibiotics and Symprove at the same time (not literally at the same...

    I'm male, 40, and I've had IBS for about 15 years. Two months ago I had antibiotics for an infection. Shortly after, I started taking probiotics (100 billion) and Saccharomyces Boulardii (5 billion). About a week after that, my stomach began making growling noises and I get rumbling and...
  4. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Ive had ibs-D for years and I recently tried a new probiotic. I had it custom made based on a submitted stool sample. So, I was optimistic this would finally be my magic bullet. But, instead, it gave me terrible D. And my immediate thought was to give up and stop. And I think thats a natural...
  5. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I have had IBS-D for many years and have tried a lot of probiotics and potential treatments. I recently decided to try one of these custom probiotic companies. You send in a stool sample and they create a custom probiotic based on your particular microbiome analysis. I haven't received my...
  6. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I've been dealing with my IBS-D for the past five years and still don't have a clear idea of what causes it. Have had two colonoscopies, an endoscopy, tried various elimination diets and other lifestyle changes, all kinds of prescription and over the counter treatments. Without my daily imodium...

    I often have watery stool after I eat dinner. Can good bacteria grow in this situation? I have been taking rather expensive probiotics and they do not seem to be making a difference, which I attributed to the watery stool washing them out. Thanks for any advice!
  8. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Good morning everyone. I've just read this clinical trial, concerning the positive effect of 4 combined probiotics on IBS-D. The probiotics were Saccharomyces boulardii, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Lactobacillus plantarum with one capsule every 12 h for 30 days. (1,5...

    I have struggled with IBS-C since 2011 at the age of 22. My grandmother passed away at the age of 32 from Colon Cancer, so as a precautionary measure, my primary care doctor ordered a colonoscopy. It was clean, but it was observed that I have a redundant colon. Fast forward through the next 4...
  10. Leaky Gas (LG) / Incontinence / Odor
    Hi, I have a prolonged holiday and have spent quite many hours rereading through this blog of you people who have leaky gas/ rectal odor, something I myself have had issues with since I was 12 (I am 34 now). I feel great sympathy for all of you, especially the younger ones (many in their...
  11. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Here's the story Ok, so I started obvious IBS symptoms in November of 2016. Though my normal bowel movements before it all were on the looser, and more frequent side, probably partly because I've been a runner most of my life. But I was getting ones that stuck to the bowl in April that year. I...
  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I've tried a dozen different store bought probiotics since being diagnosed with IBS-D four years ago. Haven't noticed any improvement with any of them. My chiropractor sold me this probiotic called Innate Choice Probiotic Sufficiency for $40. They supposedly have way more live cultures, so much...

    I had SIBO a few years ago, and it almost killed me. I had to take a lot of antibiotics (both pharmaceutical and herbal at the same time) to start the long road of recovery. I believe many people with IBS, SIBO, and other gut disorders actually have (as the *root* cause) some form of dysbiosis...

    Let me start with my story! About 20 years ago, I was having a lot of problems with my digestive system. I was a teacher in a middle school and it was really embarrassing when I had to leave my classroom because of a flare-up! I started to develop social anxiety disorders because I never knew...

    Has anyone tried Megasporebiotic, or know anyone who has? From what I have read it is supposed to be absolutely amazing, especially for people with constipation issues.
  16. General Discussion
    Hello! I have been suffering from SIBO since January, and finally was able to get it diagnosed and treated about a month ago. The symptoms improved after the antibiotics, but I still had some bloating and motility issues. Then the bloating came back, full on, as it had been before. I...
  17. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    So I have been experimenting with probiotics to help with my post Sibo recovery. After the Rifaxamin/Flagyl my stool quality did improve, I no longer had little dehydrated pebbles (the motility is still not what it used to be pre-SIBO, though but much improved). The bloating mostly went away...
  18. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Like all of us here, I spend a good portion of my time researching my digestive issues and looking for that magic key that will solve everything. Maybe the right vitamin, or herb, or medication, or probiotic. So far the only two things that I have found that I like are Effervescent Vitamin C...
  19. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Hi! I am wondering if anyone here has experience with SIBO. I am currently being treated with Rifaxamin and Flagyl for methane dominate SIBO, which occurred after a period of constipation (I ran out of my thyroid medicine for a month, which for me means that my digestive track shuts down)...

    Hi All, I am new to the group. I have suspected leaky gut and confirmed SIBO and IBS. Rather than take the heavy antibiotics my doctor prescribed, I am trying herbal antibiotics first along with probiotics and the SCD diet. Also taking amino acids and digestive enzymes as test showed I am not...
