I've had IBS-D type for 10 years. My mom too. Her MD is knowledgable on alternative medicine. He suggested 2 tablespoons aloe vera juice every day. I mix it with my morning juice because it doesn't taste great. I started it a few months ago and feel great! It "kicked in" after about 2weeks. I haven't been this "normal/regular" in years!! And I like that it is all natural.
