Hi There, I've had IBS D for the last 5 years and like everybody else - I've gone through a process of elimination of which foods could be responsible. I've tried various toothpastes - stopped using mouthwash, chewing gum etc. I've tried everything I could think of but my condition kept getting worse - I'm in my mid forties and weigh less than I did at 16! Last Wednesday was the worst day I've had in 5 uncomfortable years - all I ate was peas and chicken and it nearly turned me inside out. I read on this forum about a chap who tried taking vitamin D supplements and being cured. So I started taking vitamin D (just the basic cheap version) on Thursday last. On Friday I was as bad as usual - Saturday slightly less so - Sunday was even gentler again and today is the first time I've had just two regular, firm bowel movements in years.I haven't tried anything brave like a Cappucino yet - and I'm no doctor but it's like being reborn. Thank you so much to the man who posted the topic about vitamin D. I hope this works for others. Thank you for your time.Bhop.
