Hello Everybody, I've had IBS-D for the last 6 years and lately it became utterly unbearable. Over the years I've tried various herbs, vitamins, homeopathy etc., excluding food and trying to identify triggers. For the last few weeks even the most bland diet seemed to be a trigger. I've never believed that stress is responsible - because other than the anxiety my IBS causes me - this is the least stressful period in my life (I'm mid forties).Last Saturday I tried Grapeseed extract - within hours my stomach stopped gurgling and I've had much firmer BMs since - two a day as opposed to the 5,6,7 which had become the routine. On my budget Grapeseed extract is quite expensive - I don't know if I'll need to continue using it or if it will make me normal again. Either way - the relief is magnificent.Here's a piece I found which explains its properties better than I could.Grapefruit seed extract is used to heal and clear many conditions. It has been used for over 30 years to clear infections caused by parasites, bacteria, fungi and viruses. It detoxifies the body and supports the immune system, while clearing infections of both known and unknown origins. It is nontoxic and doesn't have any harmful side effects, and for this reason, it is a popular choice in treating illness, as many medications and antibiotics can leave the body and immune system depleted after use.I hope this helps others because if I'd known it 6 years ago life would have actually been enjoyable.Take care and good luck.
