I have mentioned it before on other threads but I found a lot of help devising a fiber plan with the book "Cure Constipation Now". He also discusses IBS, gas, bloating, and diahrea. Here is the website:
I had alternating diahrea and constipation. Once I "married" the fiber plan, I got straightened out. That is not to say that I don't still have challenges but am addressing them. Additionally my cholesterol is down 30 points and I feel sooo much better.
Natural fiber is very hard on your stomach and you should not start with it but rather one of the synthetics. I have had a lot of success with Benefiber and am just now trying to add "real" fiber. You just can't add it willy nilly. You can't just take it one day and not the next. YOU HAVE TO MARRY THE PLAN AND DO IT EVERY DAY. You also need to understand the place of laxatives and how they can help train your system.
