I have had IBS most of my life. I ended up at the emergency room a few months ago. Doc said to take 2 laxatives and 2 fleet enemas. And eat Metamucil every day. I have solved this problem by eating 2 TBS of oat bran every single day by mixing it in my cold cereal or in with my hot oatmeal. I also use parasite herbs on a regular basis - these three come in a liquid and are very very easy to use: Wormwood, Cloves, and Black Walnut. Follow directions on bottle and take for 3 weeks. Rest for 2 days after each week. Then take 2 TSP of Black Walnut Hull once a week as a maintenance. You also have to take natural laxatives while doing the parasite herbs the first 3 weeks. I also boil all dairy, as there is something in dairy that upsets the stomach. Read Dr. Hulda Clark's Book "The Cure for All Diseases". It helped me a lot. There is a way to get relieved. We eat a lot of food that we cannot tolerate or are allergic to. Stay away from most dairy, soy, corn, wheat. Eat more natural foods, if possible. Stuff with preservatives, nitrates, msg are not good for anybody. If God did not make it, don't eat it.
