Hello.I was diagnosed with IBS back in '96. I had diaheria attacks severely and was put on a prescription by the specialist after an endoscopy was performed and I was diagnosed. This medication gave me bad side effects within a couple of months, like making my vision worse and dehydration. After speaking to the specialist he told me that I could stop taking my medication, have the diaheria back, but also regain my vision back to normal, he told me that there was no alternative to help with my condition and stop the side effects other than to stop my meds. I spoke to a friend who deals in herbals and she suggested that I take Aloe Vera capsules and acidophilus. After a couple of weeks I was able to stop taking the acidophilus and control my IBS with Aloe Vera tablets. In '98 I was able to stop taking the Aloe Vera and have no more attacks. Now in 2002 I have the constipation form of it. I seeked help to have my colon irrigated to help with the constipation. What I found out is that the Slim Fast that I had been taking for 3 years had been messing with my low sugar, and once I stopped taking that, the magnesium went with it. The magnesium was helping keep me regular. Since I discovered that this week, I now take magnesium again (no Slim Fast, just magnesium tablets now), drinking plenty of water and trying to eat more vegetables. When I had my colon cleansed, they run this salivia and urine test to see what foods you may be allergic to, or need digestive aids for. I now can not have peanut butter, diary, nor white potatoes, plus other foods that I have found through trial and error, due to my IBS and low blood sugar. I also take a digestive aid at every meal to help digest my foods in order to regain control of my body again. Most importantly I have found out that the magnesium is not only good for my constipation for my IBS, but also helps keep my sugars regulated so now I have energy to even do mild physical activeties again. I hope that by sharing my story may help others.Thank you.Rhiannon100
