Does anyone has IBS?  How do you deal with it everyday? is there any over the counter product?

IBS :( on Aug 22, 2014 @ 09:30 pm

I have IBS and it is horrible. Probiotics can help, I found going off bread helped for sure, well eating it a lot less. Align worked well for me. Link below
www.align.ca normally it is a lot of probiotics and prebiotics, also another one that works especially when I get the cramps is Tumeric and Bromelen by natural factors from a local health food store. Also imodium if needed. and it in a lot of pain over the counter acetaminophen with caffeine and codeine. IBS can turn into Crohn's disease If Untreated. I would go to your local health food store and start there, also keep track of what you are eating that triggers it.
Hope this helps!!! I suffer too and it sucks. It gets worse for me when stressed and in the humidity.

Good luck :)

imodium is what will help with IBS. Also, try to watch what you eat and avoid stress.

Imodium not just on Aug 22, 2014 @ 09:42 pm

Imodium is just a cover up, like a bandaid, don't just use that you want to get to the root. Follow my advice I've had this for 10 yrs.

Go to the cause, make it better :) on Aug 22, 2014 @ 09:49 pm

These are the two main causes of IBS: Food allergies and overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. Zinc helps with with digestive enzymes (chronic diarrhea can result in zinc deficiency).

My Daughter and my Grand-Son has IBS.Some days are better than others.They both take a product called Align.It can be bought over the counter in drug stores.It is very expensive and you would need to take it every day for it to work.They don't take it every day,I guess because of the price,even though it works.Hope this helps you.

Align on Aug 23, 2014 @ 09:25 pm

Align is a Probiotic which builds healthy bacteria into the gut. Things like antibiotics, ibiprofen , alcohol, other medications. Antibiotics kill the natural bacteria in your stomach. There are 30 pills, for 30 days and its about $30. It goes on sale at zekrs, walmart sometimes. I found it did work for me, I definately noticed a difference, but it does not cure it. Keep attention to what foods trigger an attack.
