Hi

I have recently been diagnose with IBS. I have been doing my research and stressing over what food I can eat. I think I have a better idea and have started cooking as best I can but I am confused on supplements. Is there any way of taking them or will this be a bad idea due to them having a mix of ingredients.

Not sure what to do as I am unable to find information on this. I used to use a multivitamin and a fish oil vitamin but id rather not start taking these again unless I am sure they will not course a problem.

Please Help!

Regards

Hi Rikku1300

I'm new to this site, but have had IBS-D for over 10 yrs. FIve years ago or so I was showing symptoms of both Crohn's and or Collitis; very nasty things to have. I underwent a colonoscopy (to no avail, results came back clear) and a doctor at my local hospital diagnosed me as young and healthy (bear in mind at this point I'd been off work for a few months and was feeling seriously ill).

Fast forward to today however, and I've pretty much not allowed IBS to control my life or way of thinking! The worst thing one can do is stress (easier said than done I'm aware), but you can take measures to lead a relatively nomal life.

Anyway, after a lot of research myself, I've found an amazing supplement which I've only been taking for a few weeks! I originally got it to help clear my sinus infection, but they also claim to aid digestion - and trust me I've tried everything for IBS, nothing's worked up until now. This food supplement is a Natural Pineapple Enzyme called Bromelain. I take 3x 500mg a day after meals. You can buy them at Holland & Barrett - not cheap but so worth it!

I'll point out that I suffer terribly from bloating and gas (especially in the evenings and during the night), but having taking Bromelain the symptoms have subsided considerably along with the Diarrhea. And you don't have to give up your current supplements as they're more than likely not contributing to your IBS. I too, take a Multi-vitamin, Zinc and Vit D!

So going forward I'd suggest you keep a food diary and track down all your symptoms after meals. Last but not least, I cannot recommend enough going to see a reputable Reflexologist! Miraculously it was Reflexology that cured my so-called symptoms of Crohn's/Collitis and I've never looked back. This can also aide relaxation which in turn will help you feel less anxious about IBS.

Good luck, hope this helps!

So sad you have it. However, modern medicine and the informational age let anyone live happily with any possible disease. Of course, it is crucial to maintain a healthy diet when having IBS. I think your doctor can suggest to you all the products you’re allowed to eat due to your analisis. However, we all know it is better to avoid being completely healthy. Eating more cereals, boiled and well-cooked products, no fried products, and being careful with raw fruits and vegetables are better. And better avoid dairy and sweets. I suggest you buy sarms if you need supplements for workouts. Those are not harmful to our tract and overall health.

Hello, there are some natural supplements that can help you, but I recommend you to find a holistic doctor or naturopath to guide you.

Drinking aloe vera gel can help you with the inflammation and regeneration of the intestinal mucus. Specific probiotics are a must in any intestinal problem or disease and it is also important to treat the nervous system.
