My wife suffered from IBS for over 6 years. It affects(ed) nearly everything we do, plans etc. About four months ago she started taking flax seed oil capsules - 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening - on the recomendation of a fitness trainer for an unrelated purpose. We aren't vitamin or health nuts. This is the only "health supplement" she takes. Since she started taking flax seed oil she has not experienced an episode of IBS. Not one. It's unbelievable. The only thing that she changed in her life style was the flax seed oil. Her episodes stopped dead at that point. While she's still very much concerned about what she eats, at this point she's eating things that were sure fire triggers in the past. I hate to post a "crackpot" solution, but given our experience, I'd feel negligent not to.

Flax seed oil is a source of Omega 3 and some have Omega 3, 6 and 9. It supposedly anti inflamatory. good for the brain cells, and will bulk up stools. I use it. hair feels better and lessens hair falling out. Joann

Flax seeds have a scientist value for an anti-diabetic effect.The university of Saskatchewan have done a discovery as a sugar stalibizer.Clinicals trials are on the way.It can also PREVENT diabetes apparently.
I'm asking me if the flax seed oil will do the trick because the fibers are irritating to me.
