My Go To Cure towards IBS

Please check out this website to see how I remained sane through the course of my fiasco with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I will write more later about the site. HERE GOES:

I promise you will learn something right away. Once in the website, look for their IBS CHEAT SHEET. I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT. ITS MOSTLY ABOUT SOLUABLE FIBER AND WHY NEVER TO EAT INSOLUABLE FIBER ALONE. I HAVENT TRIED THE FODMAP DIET BECAUSE OF ITS RELATIONSHIP TO WESTERN MEDICNE.

HERE GOES AGAIN. I AM VERY HAPPY TO INTRODUCE YOU TO:HelpforIBS.com

You should see this name on the website:

Heather Van Vorous.

She also shows her IBS COOKING ON U TUBE.

I FOUND THIS GROUP BY FOLLOWING LINKS TO HER WEBSITE.

Hope you all are having sweet dreams.

  • Is this you Sky? - it sounds like you have found your answer to all your problems so I shant offer any of my ideas any further and bother you.

    Good Luck.

  • Scoobiedo I still need help. Heather brought me from not thinking I could ever survive to the possibility of living again. I think shes going in a healthy direction. Much better than my Health Insurance.

  • Scoobiedo.. I NEED more help and advice from other healthy ways to get better. I am stuck right now in a dead zone. I am litterally not eating any food right now. I am looking forward to all and anymore ideas.I did not know other people had other groups.

    Last year I was pain free. This year has been so bad. The scariest was not being able to move my bowels. IBS C.

    I WOULD like to help newcomers as much As I can. IMO, HEATHER IS BETTER THAN MY HMO. I WANT folks to know there are healthier choices out there.

    Geeze...Alot of my doctors dont know anything about what to eat. They keep telling me its not food related. I do not believe them. The nutritionist AT the hospital has knows zilch about food and IBS.

    HEATHER GIVES ME MORE HOPE THAN MY MIRILAX DOES. I WANT OFF OF THIS LAXATIVE. HEATHER SITE IS GOOD FOR GOOD FOOD CHOICES. BUT,FOR EMERGENCIES,I NEED MORE HELP. AM I MAKING ANY SENSE?

    I would like to hear your pros and cons about the site. For now,she has been my only hope. Now I see from this group that there is yet still more hope.

    Please dont stop giving me your ideas. I find you to be very helpful to me. You are quite the woman on so many subjects.

    I am a very enthusiatic person. Maybe I went a little overboard with the title of my post. Do you think?

    Getting ready to sleep now. My cell phone runs the battery down too quickly.

    I want to learn how not to be afraid of eating anymore. I was about 150 lbs when I first for IBS NOW I am 103 and 5 foot 1. I lost all that weight in a year. My sister in law thinks I am anorexic now. I am living on protein drinks and smoothies to make sure I am getting my nutrients. In this past attack,everything I ate hurt my stomach. I need to try more foods this week.

    So, I need all the help I can get. I am taking one of Heathers prebiotic powders. And I consumed alot of her tea. I find her office to be down to earth. Doctors dont treat me like that. Heres one for the books. Doctors say,*your just getting older,it comes with age* and they close the door and walk away. One doctor told me about how long I will probably live till. She broke my heart. I heard its against the law to tell people that. I want to live till 103. Lol. She said forget it and much more.

    I read half of your message to me when my phone died.

    I want to thank you for putting so much attention on me. It feels good. I hope we get to meet some day. I already want to meet you and your daughter. You have given me the spirit of human hope again. I dont have any family in California. They are all 3000 miles away in New York.

    I am an hours drive from the places you mentioned in California. Probably 40 min.

    Do I think that some people can have stress only related IBS?

    Thanks again for rooting me on. I need some one to get me out of bed.

    Lots of light,

    Sky

  • sky, Oh I feel so bad for you. Have you thought about taking a really good Vitamin Pill [the capsulesn NOTthe hard pills]. It sounds like you ay e deficient in VITAMINS and MINERALS. To take the hard pills do not digest in your system, are filled with additives and very little ofwhat is supposed to be in them. The capsulesget into your system better. Try to always read the ingredient list. The farther down the list you go the less amounts of what is supposed to be in them are listed. This comes from both Don and I studying all this stuff. I mentioned earlier about taking a really good PROBIOTIC CAPSULE, daily [NOT hard pills] and considering BUSCAPAN. You MUST get sone butrition ito your system, somehow. What are you putting into your smoothies. Suzann Somers has Protein Powders [they are EXCELLENT] which INCLUDE are your necessary vitamins andminerals. You just put a scoopfullinto your [alond milk] beat it, add some crushed ice - She has Vanilla, StrawberryAND CHOCOLAST [which I love]. It is sort of expensive to have it shipped up here so I do not order it often. You can access her site o the internet, and from there go to her products. She has any ALL WHOLE FOOD DERIVITIVES. Thatway you would getthe nutrition you nee daily. It is really worth a try. I thought you had found that site and was satisfied that it helped, or would help, you. It is a 'trial by error' type of situation but one that is draining your life away it sounds like. To be at what you weighdoesn't sound good. You must try. I knowit must be difficult but you are still young and have a long while to go in this life. When you are hurting,physically and mentally [?] you can let yourself sink into a dark hole and that is not good? I wish Icould helpmore but the Buscapan, Probiotics and Suzan's Protein Powders are a start you might wish to consider and they all DO help. I am tryingf to think of the milk I started using and be darned if I can remember its name - they have take something out ofthe milk which millions of pwoples systes object to. I am just to tired to get up and go to the fridge. I'll tellyou tomorrow.

    Hope you had a good sleep - I am going to put my head down now and try to sleep.

    Do you not have any famly nearby? It must be difficult.

    I will talk to you later, TTFN

  • Scoobiedo... Sweet dreams. I AM going to sleep as well.

    I will look into Susanne Sommers and the buscapan. And I will start my probiotics tomorrow. Btw, I think I am out of the woods now. I JUST suffer in the mornings until 4pm, daily,then I seem to be fine,until the next morning.. The mirilax is too much for my system. But if I give it up,i get constipated. I thought i might have a blockage. Thats why I took mirilax. Its the last thing I wanted to take...

    Sweet dreams

  • Sky: Had a fairly good sleep but could hardly move upon getting up - which is par for the course!

    Good girl: Probiotics. If you take them as directed, faithfully, I am sure they may help your system. Keep our fingers crossed. Do you know the longer you we take anything, the more ineffective it may become. Goes for meds too.

    I don't really know anything about Miralex so I cannot comment on that.

    If you have a blockage you would be in the Hospital. Perhaps if that is bothering you, you should ask for a colonoscopy??? A blockage would give you such sever pain that you could not stand it? When a person is badly constipated it almost feels like there may be a twist or blockage. And, you can have BM's and still be constipated- I know this! Found out he hard way-no pun intended! Something to think about?

    Isn't it odd that your problems worsen around a certain time? Say, if you have a sluggish metabolism, it takes hours to move what you eat to move from your stomach into the intestines and on 'out'! Goes the same from what you eat the night before. Think about my scenario; you eat supper, excercise is finished for the day, you sit [?] till you go to bed and for up to 8 hrs. your system has slowed down; hence what is in your system ia trying to move 'out', can't, pain, pain, pain - does that make any sense to you? Sky, we have been nutrition nuts and studied everything from soup to nuts about 'natural health' as it pertained to us so for what it's worth we did learn some good things as it related to us but good information in general also.

    You just have to try and fix yourself by trial and error and take what any us say and separate the wheat from the chaf, and see what applies to yourself. What I say is from the heartand from experience, bearing in mind our systems are all different??? I wish you the best and ifyou stick with it you will find your sollution - I hope.

    Have a well and great day Sky - Regards

  • Not to knock heather;s site i am sure she has helped a lot of people but it didnt help me much, I am going with all natural food supplements and products that are guaranteed to work with a 100% guarantee, I tried the fodmap for a while but it didnt make sense to me s back again to my natural food supplemens and supplier you can trust, Soon as I saw the cheat sheet I knew where you were going with it,

  • @suffering .. Can u please tell us if you are better from your supplements? What is helping you? I am very openminded when helping my IBS. I AM stuck. I want to lead a normal life again. How has your nutritionist helped you get better?

    Namaste,

  • What are some of the supplements that are helping you with your Ibs c and

    Ibs d?

    Thanks very much.

    Sky

  • Right now I am taking proniotics and prebiotics from Shaklee it is the lifeplan shakes that has the probiotics in it, I am alos slsowly adding alfalfa complex, the serving is 10 /serving, These are also from Shaklee and high quality supplements with no artificial colors or flavors, all food,

  • Thank you so much for sharing and I certainly think that food has a huge part to play with IBS! I think stress is also a factor but food as far as I'm concerned is the worst enemy. Best of luck with finding a cure x
