I have been battling IBS for 8 years now, and have tried everything. It got to the point where I would not eat because I knew that eating would make me feel worse than being hungry. My doctor has recommended many different things and I have tried them all. Including probiotic capsules, Activia, etc. The latest recommendation she had was Stonyfield Farm Yogurt. She told me that another patient had said it worked really well. I have been eating a serving of Stonyfield Farm Yogurt every day for the past three months and I am thrilled with the results! Activia had worked okay, but was still not 100% effective. But, ever since eating Stonyfield Farm Yogurt, I have seen a drastic improvement in regularity. It is like clockwork. Every day. This has never happened -- ever. It keeps my stomach feeling better in general and I could not be happier. If I have a sudden bout of severe abdominal pain I will take peppermint, ginger, and fennel oil capsules from "Heather's Tummy Care" and they work like a charm to settle the abdominal pain. They can also be taken daily to avoid pain. I found her website: http://www.helpforibs.com/
and Stonyfield Farm Yogurt a lifesaver.
