I am an IBS sufferer and have found this bulletin board to be very comforting and informative. After reading about peppermint on this board I started drinking peppermint tea everyday and sucking on Altoids. I went to my gastro doctor today for a visit just because I have had more symptons lately and as a follow up to an urgent care visit from two weeks ago. I mentioned the peppermint and she said to stop with it. She said it causes more problems and an increase in reflux. I told her I have felt better taking it and she said not to continue with it.Any comments on this? I swear I have felt so much better including peppermint in my diet.
