I'm still not sure if it's the bread that's working for me or if my success is from staying away from lactose, but I've had FOUR perfect days now! Perfect BMs and no nausea or sleepiness. I feel like putting a trophy on the toilet!The bread I'm using is Manna bread by www.naturespath.com. I couldn't find the Ezekiel bread nearby. I wrote to the company to see if they sold it to Costco (which they don't
) and they sent me back a reply. I had explained why I was using it in my e-mail to them.They also said this: There is a hospital in British Columbia which uses Manna Bread to help their bed-ridden patients with regularity.Anyway, I'll be getting a lactose test one of these days and then I'll know for sure. In the meantime, I'm not prepared to give up the bread to find out what my problem is. It's not worth it to be sick again, even for a day!Fiona

Hi Cherri,Thanks for the info, but i'm in Toronto, Canada and it's much harder to find here. The company told me there's only one store in Toronto that carries it.Fiona

I just started with the bread, too. Fortunately, I have been controlling my IBS with diet for months now, but I decided to start the bread anyway since it is so healthy and such a good source of fiber. I can see where it would help your sleepiness... I was told that it has the kind of carbs in it that take longer to digest so it's really good at keeping your blood sugar level. Maybe that was part of your problem. Also, when my IBS symptoms got worse, I cut out all dairy. After a month or so of feeling better, I started reincorporating it in but in small amounts, such as a little cheese one day or a little milk on cereal the next. But I still do not use dairy to the extent that I used to. So maybe you won't be lactose intollerant, maybe you'll be able to have a little dairy here and there someday too... :)
