Hi guys,

Please use this thread to post links to threads you (or others if they haven't posted them yet) made about things that have helped/fixed your issues. So we can keep track of all the possible remedies that have helped people.

Some people probably find something helpful or curative, make a post about it, and then have no need to come back to the forums. So it would be good to archive these types of threads so new people can see them. It should also cut down on new people asking the same things over and over.

For examples, look at what I have in my signature.

Please don't use this thread for comments/discussion. Do that in the linked threads so this doesn't get cluttered.

Two threads about people having success with FMT:

http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/topic/243081-i-recently-fixed-my-ibs-d-its-gone/

http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/topic/165423-fecal-bacteriotherapy-for-ibs-d-success/

Just a general article, but another FMT success for IBS: http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/4/11581994/fmt-fecal-matter-transplant-josiah-zayner-microbiome-ibs-c-diff ( note that he does some unnecessary/extreme things like rubbing antibiotics on his skin).

There are more FMT success stories elsewhere on the net. Donor quality seems to be the #1 factor, but it's really difficult to figure out what makes a donor good enough. I've seen a number of reports that Taymount Clinic FMTs are not effective, so take that into account before spending thousands of dollars on them. Their donors (and possibly procedure details) are likely inadequate.

I have or had IBS D. My Dr suggested that I try Pancreatic Enzymes available at Health Food stores and Amazon. I tired it and it stopped the diarrhea after one pill. I use the 500 mg strength. Haven't had diarrhea in over two months now.

fecal microbiome transplants, thats gross
Well, that's an honest statement. A common first reaction. But, when you learn about it, and how some doctors are reversing human disease and literally restoring health, it becomes a little less gross. People that do FMTs are not touching it with their hands of course. They use sterile nitrile gloves, etc.

It's just poop. I grew up on a farm. We had to walk in it, shovel it, etc, etc. It's part of raising livestock on a farm. You wash up when you are done, and life goes on.

Well, here's mine: http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/topic/339682-22-yrs-of-ibs-d-halted-with-first-dose-of-kratom/

I'm claiming success at 2 months (edit: now 14 months) in, though I'll continue to update. It's a miracle for me. Controversial for some. I'd like to see posts of the results if anyone does try this, thanks in advance.

I'm also happy to answer any questions people may have for me, on that thread (so as not to clutter this one). I feel like shouting from the rooftops, don't think the neighbors would understand however.

I'm having great success with Aegle Marmelos/Bael/Bilva.
It goes by several names, but it's an Indian fruit.
I originally ordered some dried fruit and boiled it the drank the juice, as recommended by a member in a FB group. Then I got capsules, but lately I buy the organic Bilva powder on Amazon and use 1/2 tsp in a cup of hot water, twice a day.
I've had solid stools almost every day since Nov 1st. Stress is still an issue for me, but a little Kratom tea helps if I have high stress, like a dental appointment. I really don't care for how Kratom makes me feel, but I add it in to manage stress occasionally.
