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 Sue

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.
