Hello. I thought I would share my recent improvement in IBS symptoms and what I think may have helped. I have had IBS for over 20 years with some horrible episodes lasting for months at a time. I have had lots of tests/ scans etc. Since september I had a bad flare up of pain/mucus/ constipation and diarrhea. I decided to try a few things to help it... I now take probiotics (did notice a small improvement after 6 weeks taking them) I then started drinking ginger and lemongrass cordial diluted with hot water, not cheap at £3 a bottle but it tastes really nice (no artificial sweeteners etc.) I cut out tomatoes, onions, garlic, spicy foods and artificial sweeteners from my diet and I use oat milk. It sounds alot but I have noticed a real improvement in my symptoms, I would say 70% better than I was. I know this will not help everyone but maybe even just helping someone with my post would be nice. Ginger cordial a real winner for me it really calms my bowels down.
