Flossy many people with IBS suffer from depression. I don't know what percentage though. I am not saying all. But for me my IBS gets worst if I don't take antidepressants. There is a gut-brain axis. Eric who was a prolific poster here has posted in great detail regarding this. Flossy are you on antidepressants?
No, I'm not on antidepressants.

Hi. Did not eat papaya yesterday. Only took Ayurvedic med. Today bowel cleared after drinking lots of tea. Bowel not cleared satisfactorily. Will be eating papaya today evening. Will also take psyllium husk in warm water. Will give feedback tomorrow. Seems papaya having effect but not ayurvedic med although ayurvedic med takes some time to work.

Again bowel problem. Had to drink lots of tea, then bowel got cleared at 12pm. Had taken ayurvedic med and papaya yesterday. Bowel got cleared after 2 days. I am not sure if ayurvedic med working or working slowly plus I am also listening to hypnotherapy recordings.

have you looked into FODMAPs? Fructose (which is in a lot of fruit juices) can cause issues for some people with IBS.

I am fine with carbohydrates like rice and whole grains. I haven't drank carbonated or fruit juices since yesterday. Have eaten papaya. Will keep you posted.

Hi. Had eaten lot of papaya and took Ayurvedic med but still slow bowel movement. Bowels got cleared at 11.30 am. I am tired of this. Why some days early bowel movement while other days late.
