Hi everyone on the IBS forum, I am usually on the GERD forum but I pop over here now and then because I also have IBS. Had it for at least 16 years. I have been on the carb controlled diet for almost 3 weeks and not only has it cured my GERD, (no meds for almost 2 weeks, was taking 45 mgs of prevacid daily), I have also had no problems with my IBS. I cannot believe the difference. I feel so much better in every way. Please don`t dismiss this approach. It is not one of the quack theories that we get from time to time. It works. It would do no harm for people to try it and if it doesn`t help, then at least you have given it a shot. I found personally that it was wheat products causing most of my problems, especially bread. I am very grateful to Dr. Norm for all his help.
Take care, Vanessa.
