Carol, We kept her IBS under good control with lactose free Acidophilus. It is a live bacteria that promotes a balance of good and bad bacteria that we need to have proper bowels. It is used for IBS, constipation and flagulance(spell check). Women who take it daily also dont get yeast infections. When researching stuff for my daughter, her life was aweful being young and couldnt go out to eat with friends, family BBQ she wouldnt eat. SHe became a hermit at 17yrs old. I found this and it is used by cancer centers of america as one of the homeopathy aides for patients. It is found at pharmacy, walmart and health food stores. There are no side effects, my husband and i take it also as anti-depressents cause constipation, antibiotics cause constipation also. Both hospitals we use also continue this as a med when he is in there. The transplant team also said to continue it as it does help to create a balance. You would have to start her on three tablets a day for a few weeks to see if it helps her. But depression is sometimes a major cause for IBS stress eats away at the balance. Each tablet of 1 billion bacteria is like eating yogurt by the case. Check it out yourself if she wont try anti depressents. It did wonders for my daughter.
When I started counting my blessings my whole world turned around.
