I had IBS-C I've Been Symptom free for 6 Months because I Started Taking Mushroom Supplements

Hello Everyone,

I suffered from IBS-C for 5 years. It was ruining my life. The pain, gas, and constipation was unbearable. I went to the hospital 4 times in 2014 between October and March. I started taking mushroom supplements and the IBS-C is totally gone now. I have waited 6 months to make sure that the IBS symptoms are actually gone and I stopped taking the supplements and within 3 days I had that stabbing pain in my abdomen meaning that I was going to have an attack. I took my supplements again and have not a one ounce of pain since. I did a youtube video about what I use (I don't work for the company or get any sort of money from them I just buy the supplement on Amazon). If you put in "My IBS is Cured! This is what I did!" you will see my video on what I exactly do. I hope this helps everyone :)

D.M.

Why can't you just give out the name of the product without having to go onto a video? That would help all sufferers like yourself.

Hi there, agree with Smpittman below, can you not just give out the name of the product as you have said you do not work for the company. If every I find something that helps me I will name what it is and hopefully then it will help others.

Also, what kind of symptoms did you have with IBS C (this is what I have) i.e. did you just have cramping and constipation or did you also suffer with nausea and sometimes diorrhea if your tummy became upset?

I dont see how a mushroom supplement helps ibs c or d as it is a funghi and most people that have ibs have bad bacteria in stomach brought on by a illness or a tablet ie antibiotics that kill all good bacteria in gut.

Your money and time would b better of getting a good probiotic, gut enzyme and candida natural tablet. Plus some inner leaf aloe vera!!!

Peppermint oil capsules.... thats all i use and sorts it aless im a idiot and eat shit ha ha and i give u that information for free no having to watch a vid

Saccharomyces Boulardii is a probiotic yeast, a type of fungus. It's one of the best probiotics available. It's the only one that's helped my chronic diarrhea. If you take D-Mannose with it at the same time, it binds toxins in the bowel and they are removed. It also is a treatment for giardia parasite. People who are sensitive to fungi might not want to take it, but otherwise it's a wonderful treatment.

Thanks Lulububs. Could I please ask you what Probiotics you buy? I've also got Ginger and Lemon Tea and that tastes quite nice but I haven't drunk enough of it yet to see if it makes a difference.

I've tried Peppermint Oil Capsules before but they don't work for me.

Thanks

See the peppermint caps with the enzyme and the probiotics i take 15 min before i eat. That way my food sits better, no wind or gas. Or pain.. so three times a day.

I take cytoplans acidiphilus and digestive enzymes. Holland and barratt peppermint capsules and i also buy there oil for days when i need to get rid of some extra wind or pain and it works a treat with hot water.

If u have had antibiotics or a case of food poisoning in last 5 years u may wana take there candida one dont know what it called but it kills bacteria ( bad bacteria called candida) which can give u all the symtoms of ibs

Thank you Lulububs. I will have a look at the Holland & Barrett website. I had food poisoning back in 1996 and that is how my IBS started, I could eat anything before then.

My problem started with a food poisoning as well. It turned my digestive system upside down. Just a few months ago I could eat anything I wanted to eat, my bowels were normal. Now everything is messed up and I wonder if I will ever be in good health again.

I feel for you Milliebeans and it does make you feel like that. Unfortunately I've had it for around 20/21 years now and in the early days it was bad, then I had quite a few good years where I could eat most foods but it's now back with a vengeance so that is why I am going to be following the FODMAP diet - I'm just getting the food I need in first.

The only way to deal with this awful infliction is to look at your diet, there is no other way.

Best of luck to you

I bought the acidophilus today in Holland & Barret, they had it on special offer luckily so I am now going to start taking that.

I guess it sounds too good to be true, just a supplement, especially as we are advised to avoid mushrooms, but I will give it a try as have had enough of 6 years misery, we got to try - thanks

I have looked the suggestion and it seems that it not mushrooms as such it is a microism a kind of probiotics and i always use cytoplan.com for all my supplement as they add nothing else to them.

I am gluten wheat yeast and dairy intolerant so cannot have anything added to my supplement.

It seems this is a very good supplement this saccharimyces boullardi( cant spell lol) as it kills candida which is bad bacteria in gut which is brought on from stomach viruses, antibiotics , tablets, food poisoning.

So all id say is try it as a ibs sufferer we try everything!! But make sure it clean.... always buy from a clean company that does not add startch or yeast. Cytoplan do one it 23 quid i think.

I take there acidiphilus, gut enzymes and aloe vera inner leaf! It generally keeps all my ibs at bay and i have one normal poop a day which as we all know is a miracle!! Lol

Im gona buy some to see if it help me along and keeps my gut good
