I have tried both holistic and traditional meds (peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, lotronex, hyocyamine, etc.) reikki, hypnotherapy, yoga, etc., and I still have two or more ibs episodes every week. Basically, the diarrhea is keeping me at home. Imodium is not always effective. I am at the end of my rope, and my husband, although understanding, can't cope with the extra responsibilities anymore. Does anyone have any new suggestions that work for them? If I miss one more important function in my children's lives, I don't know what I'll do. Last year, my eldest son made the All-star baseball team, and I missed every one of his games. Thanks.
