I recently got a book from the library called, "The Self-Help Way to Treat Colitis and Other IBS Conditions" by De Lamar Gibbons, M.D.. Its an older book, but the reviews on Amazon sounded very promising. Has anyone tried this and found success? This is the diet that eliminates fructose (and sorbitol, mannitol, and lactose) and wheat bran fiber.
Any experience you can share would be much appreciated.
