  2. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    After reading US National Library of Medicine article: "Herbal medicines for the management of irritable bowel syndrome: A comprehensive review" I was curious to explore some of the herbs/elixirs and wondered if anyone had heard of and, or tried some of them? Iberogast (STW 5) -...

    Having a particularly bad day today with my IBS-D. I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw an ad for something called IBSolution.

    Any Australian readers? I'm new to this forum, so if I make any blunders....entirely unintentional. Because I live in Australia, we don't have anywhere near the range of Vitamins/Supplements/Medications that are often available in the US and in Europe. With my inquiries below, I'm asking for...

    Hello, I'm Dars (real name obscured!) and I was diagnosed with IBS when I was just a kid (I'm 34 now).

    Dear all, I am new to IBS and going through a sort of an elimination phase meaning that I do not have a balanced diet.

  10. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I'm curious about the effect of pre-biotics (digestive enzymes) on IBS symptoms. And also how many probiotics are too many? Is it the more the merrier? I haven't yet determined what works and what doesn't work. And one more thing. Last year my doctor told me to try Intramin, a liquid supplement...

  12. Your Story
    Hey to everyone, I'm new here but I already feel a little better just going through the list of symptoms on the registration page. Its good to know I'm not alone! In a nutshell, my IBS seemed to be triggered several years ago by a combo of postpartum depression and a stomach virus...
  13. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Treatments
    Hey everyone, I'm hoping for suggestions on a good multivitamin. I know that sounds silly, but I've purchased many vitamins in the past that have really messed my stomach up. But I believe getting a good vitamin balance is essential for my health. I think certain additives (like sulfites) are a...

I'll get bloated and constipated for a few days then when I'm eventually able to go to the toilet, my bowel movements will be on and off all day and sometimes I'll have diarrhea. I've been to the doctors a few times over the years...
  16. Diet
    My doctor suggested that I could try grapefruit seed extract to help alleviate some of my IBS symptoms, and so I started doing a little research. I've read in a couple of places that IBS symptoms "might" be alleviated by grapefruit seed extract, but I can't find any sources that can suggest why...

  18. General Discussion
    First off a little about myself I have suffered from IBS for as long as I could remember, probably all throughout elementary I was shy and antisocial. 7th Grade I realized sugar didn't make me feel good so I tried to stop eating it. (emphasize TRIED) 9th grade I had frequent and reocurring...
  19. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Does anyone use a specific electrolyte replacement during an IBS-d flare? I seriously get dehydrated every time and either get very sick or end up in the ER. Drinking more just doesn't do it for me. I always have a supply of Pedialyte on hand. That seems to do the trick for me. I was just...
