I too am a sufferer of I.C.I can remember symptons in my childhood. I am currently disabled ;but am making progress like never before!! I know this diesease can be overwhelming;because it is so misunderstood by most. I feel that my doctor is probably one of the best in the country. So many things can vary in each person,but I have learned to go to the basics & start up; as the human body is so complicated. At the present time I am amazed at what nutrition can do for you.So I again say that each situation is so different ;but welcome your email to help you pinpoint your case.
