Hey guys, I haven't been on here in a while because touch wood, after almost 2 months of awful IBS-D I am feeling much better! I even managed to go to Thailand and eat Thai curries and seafood and drink alcohol, all without any issues! Aside from mad bloating on the plane, but some things cant be helped!
A few things that I live by now are:
Yakult! if you have no other option Yakult is a great probiotic! And is so necessary after losing all that good gut floral from an upset bowel movement!
Probiotics - I take a probitoc capsule 2x a day now!
Bimuno travel aid - I took this when in Thailand and i think it helped keep me balanced! highly recommend this for travelling!
Kombucha tea - I believe this is what saved my stomach! It is fermented so is amazing from stomach bacteria! find it get it or make it! I 100% recommend this - I love the taste but not everyone does!
Fybogel - one sachet a day! i will be taking this for my entire life i think!But rice and bananas and oats are also a great source of soluble fibre!
Fingers crossed everyone feels better soon! and try to stay positive! I think state of mind has a big part to play in a lot of cases of IBS! And I know remaining positive is hard - but you will feel better! it just takes time! xxxx
