A few weeks ago there was a thread about the effects of SJW on IBS. That same day I was having miserable symptoms and remembered an article someone posted about the gut having it's own little brain (does anyone remember that one?), and I wondered if the SJW that I took to handle depression during my cycle would affect my IBS. I took two pills and within a couple hours my symptoms were gone. Before getting too excited I wanted to experiment. It has been three weeks since the first time I tried it. Since then my IBS has has come back two times. At the first sign of symptoms I popped two SJW pills and POOF, within a couple hours my symptoms were gone. It seems like it is safe to assume the SJW is helping. After reading the BB I think my IBS is more mild than a lot of other cases. This may make it easier to control. Just thought I would let you know in case it could help someone else.P.s. St. John's Wort is an herbal anti-deppresant that has been used in Germany for years. It is prescribed 40 times more than Prozac to treat depression (I read this in an herbal guide out of a health magazine).
