Hello I am new to this site so I will introduce myself. I am 52 years of age and live with my husband in Milton Keynes England. I was diagnosed with IBS and have been trying to find some support.
I found you at last.
Well here goes along with all the other wonderful things that go with IBS I have a problem every time I eat anything containg wheat. I get the most awful stomach cramps, that goes fro wholewheat bread, white bread, french bread, bread crumbs, pasta, I think thats it oh cakes, pastry, doughnuts you get the picture.
So now I am trying to find things I can eat and experimenting with new recipes and flours.
Does anyone else have this problem?
It is not celiac disease that I do know but it is a real problem and one that is making things hard for me.
 

You can do anything if you really want to.

HI and welcome. The people here are really nice.  Sorry you have IBS- that's no fun.  Have you tried Heather VanVorous's book called, 'Eating for IBS'.  It has worked wonders for lots of people.  However, the wheat thing may complicate that a bit- but it may be worth looking at.  Trial and error unfortunately is the only way to go when it comes to eating.  BUt along the way, it's hard, no doubt.  And just when you think you've got it all figured out, BAM!  Something new comes along.  But try reviewing her book- you may benefit from it.  You also live in England I notice?  That is where the infamous Micheal Mahoney resides. He is an IBS therapist if you will.  He put together a 100 day hypnotherapy course for us who suffer.  He has a clinic in Warrington, Chesire, WA5 1UD.  His IBS Audio Program as it's called has (research to back it up) an over 85% success rate in reduction of symptoms.  Check that out too if you think you might be interested.  I'd love to visit his clinic.  But as always, check with your MD before starting anything new. Good luck to you.

Thanks for the welcome I will be looking out for recipes I can use and any other tips that are around. It is going to a steep learning curve as I will have to re-think how i make everything from pastry and cakes to bread and Yorkshire pudding.

You can do anything if you really want to.

Hi Paula, I'm a newbie also.

I hope you find some very useful tips and advice over the coming weeks. :-)
Do you have an IBS question that nobody can answer for you? I used to have many also.
