I have been suffering from IBS,have gone through the normal Colon check procedures i.e.: Colonoscopy, Upper/lower GI, Blood work..conclusions were GERD,MILD DIVERTICULOSIS,AND IBS.
Given that the popular synopsis for this condition,they say,is Stress,Anxiety,and also Diet,to control the Cramping and painful inflammation of the colon, I would like to know if anyone has heard that IBS sufferers should adhere to a Diet such as a Celiac Diet,meaning the absence of GLUTEN.
For me, trying to find the right foods to eat on a daily basis,is still quite frightening,meaning that almost anything I eat makes my stomach feel weird,then the cramping starts.
I have been trying to research this online,but so far, I've had a lot of mixed messages on whether the protein in WHEAT FLOUR Gluten, is indeed a Trigger food or not. OR whether Brown Rice is better than WHITE rice for IBS.
I'm also finding out that a lot of people are finding that this condition (IBS) is a Big moneymaker to sell high priced cooking books and Hypnotherapy books,and food products are extremely taking advantage of this as well.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for free enterprise and all,but since this IBS condition is Stress and Anxiety related, we certainly don't need more stress on top of it.
Granted,everyone is certainly different on what medications and diet to control this condition works well for them,but just wanted to know if
anyone out there has discovered if NOT eating all-purpose enriched flour as opposed to a Gluten free flour has had any impact on their condition or not.
I stopped all dairy,carbonated drinks,caffein (coffee,tea) gaseous veggies-brocolli,cabbage,onions,etc., drinking SOY milk and YOPLAIT yogurt for the active cultures.
Just wanted to know if anyone has trouble with Gluten or Soy.
