Hello all,First let me say, I have been completely cured of IBS-D !!!I now have my life back thanks to following The Specific Carbohydrate Diet which was clinically tested for over 50 years by Dr Haas and biochemist Elaine Gottschall, a woman who I owe my life for making me well again ! ! !To learn more about the diet, see http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle.info/be...e/beginners.htmI picked up the book "Breaking The Vicious Cycle" after coming across the title in my research to find out what it was that I had which had me rushing to the bathroom between 8 - 10 times a day. As usual, I was skeptical about such a cure, but after reading all the positive reviews on Amazon.com I decied to give it a try. I bought the book and immediately started the diet. I loaded up a few bags of foods on the "do not eat list" and donated the food to my sister, who was very happy with my sudden kindness.The Roadmap to My IBS-D Cure.I started the diet on February 19, 2009, NO CHEATING!I also purchased a 90 day bottle of Healthy Trinity.After my 90 day supply of Healthy Trinity ran out, I did not purchase a new bottle.In June, I started to make my own homemade yogurt with my Yo'gourment maker. The "Breaking The Vicious Cycle" diet is recommended for at least one year, but on October 19th, I decided it was time to experiment.I went to my local grocery store and purchased a fresh loaf of bread to take home for my experiment.I got home and ate the whole darn loaf with some butter!!! OMG!!! It was the best bread I ever ate in my life!!!! I was fine for the whole week after eating the loaf of bread.The next week I decided to try a cheesburger with french fries at one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago, Portillo's!! I devoured both the burger and fries in a few minutes!! Again, OMG!!! The best burgers in town!!! And best of all, no problems with running to the bathroom.Okay, now after a few weekly experiments comes Thanksgiving in Novemeber. I sampled everything that was available, bread, mashed potatoes, pasta, rice, corn, cheese cake, ice cream, brownies, pumpkin pie, you name it, I ate it!!! And no problems whatsoever!!!! I have tried out several buffet restaurants around town and have been able to eat whatever I put on my plate, which is basically a sample of every type of food available at these buffet restaurants, so you can imagine, there is nothing I have not been able to eat without having to worry about running to the bathroom afterwards. I am a new man!!! I am CURED!!!!It has now been almost two months and I can honestly say that I am completely cured of IBS-D ! ! !I wanted to post my updates after my initial thread which I posted sometime earlier this year after discovering this board, all in an effort to not only share my success story with y'all but to hopefully change the lives of those suffering from IBS because the only people that know the hell your life is with IBS are those who suffer from IBS, like I once did myself.I highly recommend strictly following the diet above along with Healthy Trinity and homemade yogurt if you want to be cured of IBS-D. I now have my life back and can enjoy going outside without having to worry about running to the bathroom!!!
