As a chronic sufferer of IBS (d-type) triggered by many trips to India and Nepal i really empathise with fellow sufferers of this horrible condition and whilst i fully realise that we all respond differently to the various treatments and remedies available for IBS since there are so many different symptoms and causes of the condition including diet and food intollerances etc which may in some cases be helped by following the FODMAPS diet etc, but i just wanted to share with you all two remedies i recently started taking (as i personally prefer natural as opposed to allopathic treatement) and although its too early for me to be sure yet how effective they've been for me in the lomg term; but i have noticed some improvement in the reduction of symptoms so i just though some of you might benefit from trying them also perhaps:
1: Saccharomyces Boulardii - vegan capsules available from OptiBac Probiotics (amongst other brands) which is a natural microorganism from a safe yeast with differing properties to other yeasts) which was recommended to me when i asked the staff at Whole Foods for a supplement to treat my suspected SIBO (Small Initenstine Bacterial Overgrowth). Its not cheap but its a short term treatment and may be worth a try for some of you who suspect or have been diagnosed with SIBO.
2: D Mix (a fusioin of seeds to chew after meals to aid digestion by stimulating enzyme release)

I hope this helps and best wishes to all
