Well some of you may remember me, i turned up a couple of months ago on this board after suffering IBS for about 6 years
 
after reading some stuff i thought i might give aloe vera gel (not juice) a go
 
well, i took about 2.5 to 3 ounces of the stuff every morning about half an hour before breakfast for about 5-6 weeks
 
at first i thought it might be working cos i didn't have any bad attacks but in week 4 i had a few bad moments. I guess overall i was feeling marginally better, with maybe slighlty less of an upset stomach then usual. but i don't know it's hard to tell, it certainly wasn't really anything to write home about so i've stopped drinking the stuff... confused
 
oh well, just thought i'd let u know how i got on, you never know, just because it didn't work for me it dosen't mean it won't for you!
 
back to the drawing board then...

Hey roadtrip, thanks for the update. And I'm sorry aloe didn't work for you.... bummer. Keep at it though, keep looking and trying. One day you'll get better.

Have you tried Digestive Advantage?

Digestive Advantage is a probiotic, as is Culturelle. They both contain a lot of active cultures of several different varieties (versus acidophillus pills, which only contains one type of good bacteria). Yogurts also contain a few different kinds of bacteria, but I think the best is Stonyfield brand. It contains several different kinds.
