Not posted for awhile.
For a long time I thought certain foods were triggering my ibs or making it worse so i tried the 'ibs diet', which basically meant not eating anything nice. That did not have any effect on me at all.
I tried just cutting out the foods i thought had the worst effect, and started to feel better, hooray i thought - just never eat those foods again and i will be fine. Easier said than done when its bread, milk, wheat etc. Anyway to cut a long story short...I still eat those foods now and again and sometimes i am fine and sometimes i can be really ill so i have come to the conclusion its pointless worrying about what i eat. I now eat healthier and also have discovered nutritional supplements! I have found this wonderful supplement which you mix as a drink, its not just for ibs, as i said its a nutritional supplement, i wanted to be healthier and i did suffer with acne so was hoping it would help my skin, so i take it everyday and I have noticed the difference with my ibs after just a few days i was not running to the loo all the time. Trouble is you have to remember to take it everyday and also i did not know how long it would take before i noticed anything as everyone is different, but i feel so much better. You see the difference is, pills take a long time to absorb into your system and only a percentage of the contents actually go where they are needed. The one i use is a drink so its quicker. Its weird but i feel my 'insides' are healing, if that makes any sense?!. I really think good well balanced nutrition is the key. If anyone wants to try it let me know its fantastic. Its a company called Reliv, they have various ones, i use their classic which is all round nutrition and innergize which is an energy drink, i mix them together and drink.
