Everyone, people are learning about the role of vitamin D in eliminating IBS. Turns out that most cases of IBS arise from a vitamin D deficiency, and it turns out that most people are vitamin D deficient, despite taking multivitamins. I've been getting more vitamin D since October 2009 and my symptoms gradually subsided. It's miraculous. I usually don't post in forums but my conscience wouldn't be able to handle keeping this info to myself. Anyway, here are some materials for you to check out for yourself:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cq1t9WqOD-0...feature=channelAnd for more information about vitamin D, check out the video lecturer's book, The Vitamin D Solution, by Dr Michael Holick. The book will tell you all about how much to take, reliable brands, etc. Personally, I've found the Costco brand works fine. Costco sells a bottle of 600 capsules of 2000 UI each for $14, which is a steal. Following Dr Michael's advice, I started with 50,000 UI per day, then gradually lowered it. Give yourself a month to notice improvements.Check it out for yourself. I'm sure your all skeptical since you feel you've tried everything, and that's why I provide the links.Good luck!

Thank you. Unfortunately you're not the first one to suggest this. Also, I thought it was Vitamin D3 that was supposed to help not just Vitamin D? There is a certain dr. (can't remember his name at the moment) who is very fond of this treatment. He also recomends you take lots of Omega 3 (fish oil) in addition to the D3. I tried this and was probably taking way too much of both supplements for a while but it didn't work at all.How soon did you notice your symptoms improving?

That sounds like a lot 50,000 iu. Is that safe?
That does sound like much, too much. I think the other poster who posted about this and the dr. (that i can't remember his name) said to take around 10,000 IU of D3 but i'm not 100% sure on that, I just know it wasn't any where near 50,000. Could one's body even absorb that much?

Pardon my scepticism(uk spelling) but I'm always a bit wary of these quick fix solutions simply because a lot of us IBS'ers have had numerous,blood tests,stool samples,urine samples done to us over the years and a deficiency of any sort has never been mentioned at all in that time.I tried the Calcium treatment which was Calcium Carbonate plus Vitamin D and this worsened my symptoms so I don't think it will work for me.I don't doubt your sentiments but after 20 years of problems I'm always a bit wary of these claims based on my own experiences.
