Has anyone tried this to settle the symptoms of IBS...I have mucous colitis/IBD Proctitis and have been suffering for years. Nothing is coming up on my scopes. I recently have been sick for about 5 months and my Doctor has given up helping me, thinking (I think) its all in my head. Deciding to be proactive I have been using Oxycleans (oxigenated magnesium) to stave off constipation and practicing proper food combining. Fruit alone, no carbs with proteins, veg w/ most things etc.

Because I am running out of options for treatment and relief I am wondering if this has helped anyone? There is a diet book floating around the web (Shery Brescia) that guarantees relief in 3 days and would like to get some feedback if anyone knows anything.

Eliminating dairy and increasing fiber is not enough any more. Salofalk no longer works.

Please am I fooling myself I am just about ready to stop eating anything...I am always in pain.

Is this a disease where "if it works go with it" I am really afraid that it will develop into colon cancer if I don't fix it and tired of trying things that are futile.

I feel happy to have found a site with others who have the same malady as myself.
Thank you

Have you tried the Miralax. People say it works very well. I don't know about the book you mention. I don't have much luck with those kinds of things. I don't know how safe the Oxyclean is. I understand the Colon Cleanse pills work but are not recommended. I know they turned my friends colon all black probably from the Senna in it. The doctor had her stop it but did say it wasn't really dangerous. I guess she had used them for years and has now stopped and having problems again. One thing that contributes to constipation are some types of Calcium so you might check that out.

oh! Interesting Canyonbabe! Thanks! the calcium thing is something I may look at as I do overdo Soya Milk?. The Oxycleans contains no senna and is just oxigenated magnesium. It is not a laxative. Its tooted as very very safe for long term. Its expensive but sure helps. Can only get it online that I know of. Today I am thinking I may go back onb Psylliumn husk....sigh..(the old standby).just not getting better and been sick so long this bout. about 8 months. The mucous is so scary....just wondering how dangerous it is without bleeding.
