I have to agree about tea. The one that helps me the most is peppermint tea.

Welcome REDHEADEDKAT...I'm looking forward to learning from you too.

I'm the same as Linda..some days are really good and other days it's a disaster with D as well, eating the same food. Eggs in the morning give me D, but not if I eat them in the afternoon so figure that out. I was told to stay away from all milk product so I hardly eat cheese anymore (which I think I'm addicted to) and I haven't had any yogurt which I used to eat everyday. It definitely made a big difference.

Thanks for the info on the teas and the essential oil blend.

Good luck

Welcome to the team. Yes, do keep a food journal. I find that I can eat certain items one day and have not problem. The next day I may eat the same food and have a terrible problem with "D". Keep posting...anxious to get to know you.

Hello all. I have been dealing with IBS for the last two years. I've only been "diagnosed" for the last year. About six months ago I started making my own teas with fennel, peppermint, anise, and caraway. They provided some limited relief to discomfort. About a month ago I was introduced to an essential oil blend that has done wonders. I put a couple drops in my water twice a day and the results have been amazing. I am trying to track foods, but have only been able to identify a few triggers. Anyway, I look forward to learning more about how others deal with this.
