Yes ...lots of good info here. My grandmother used to drink warm water and lemon juice every morning. Lemon is definitely a good cleanse for the liver!

I also took Zelnorm before it was taken off the market...

Right now I take no meds and trying the naturopatic way....

Have a great day!

Boy, sure is alot to digest here lol... I've not heard about that product, I use Restorolax, a natural product but it takes about 2-3 days to work and we all know how that feels. If I get that far, I have to use the glycerin just so I don't end up with "roids".....a childbirth gift that I've always had off and on, but more on than off with the IB.

I go from one extreme to the other, always trying to find that "perfect" balance. I eat yogour with prebiotics as well, and eat as much leafy green etc as I can, if I've just had IBd I have to cut back, then I go IBc...... emoticon

Digestive Advantage was a life saver for me! I couldn't eat anything without getting a terrible stomachache before. I tried Zelnorm but it didn't help so I started looking around for something myself and found Digestive Advantage. I usually start my day off with Activia Yogurt just because it is comforting to my stomach. I don't know if it really helps to regulate my bowels but it has become a comfort food for me when my tummy feels out of sorts!

I start my day with 8 oz of warm water with lemon juice mixed in it. I try to drink at least 88 oz of water thru out the day as well. I am not as fortunate as most of you, as I have to take Amitiza, Digestive advantage, and Mirlax everyday as well. Somedays it works, some not. I just learned to take it one day at a time.

I find that drinking plenty of water every day really helps as well as taking Flax Seed Oil, too. Although I have heard that adding ground flax seeds to your foods is better to do than taking the caplets.

A friend just told me that every day she gets up and has a warm glass of water and a squirt of fresh lime juice, I tried it but only today so far. I'm usually IBd but last week have been IBc since I've been watching my food. Just keep on my pharmacist friend told me today to take a glycerin suppository tonight before I went to better and things would go better tommorrow, hmmmmm a new thing to try.

Anyway, that's the word on the street on IBS here emoticon

For me a quiet morning with a good cup of regular coffee usually does the trick!

I am fortunate that all it takes for me is 1 to 3 pitted prunes and my problem is over.

Do you smoosh it all up in a blender or food processor?
