I have tried the elimination process many years ago, and it was great while I was totally clean of everything, but very hard to maintain. Now I just do thing moderately and it works out much better. Some things I have to stay away from like woody or stringy things or waxy. I learn every day I think, unfortunately when you "learn" it is usually pretty painful.

Such is life....

Happy Valentines Day everyone, no chocolate for me tonite.

And that's fine.

I'd recommend getting a book on food intolerance/elimination diets and trying an elimination diet. It's a great way to figure out what your triggers are. You reduce the types of food you are eating and then slowly add them back.

based on my own experience, cooking without it, has giving me my life back, again the thing about this horrible monster (ibs) is knowing that is not a diet that you have to follow every day, is more of a lifestyle in order for your belly to feel good. there is not that many choices out there for us, but there is ways that we can be happy with what we eat. is very annoying knowing, that you cant be like everybody else but then again they probably dont have ibs and dont suffer like us. by the way egg noddles are safe to eat so are pears, avoid any citrus fruits(like oranges, grape fruit etc) much love to you and have a beautiful evening emoticon

Thank you so much. I'm guessing I want to avoid yeast?

hi darling,
I understand your pain, and believe me i know how frustrating it can be. i have ib-d and pretty much every day i take two tablespoons of konsyl (walmart brand name) before bedtime, i switched the regular pasta and the bread for whole wheat without any yeast in it. one of my favorites is brown rice mixed with zucchini and grilled chicken (everything cook separate, and then put together in a bowl or plate, and you can put any spice that you like in it), turkey chilli is delicious, mashed potatoes (just potatoes, butter, and salt), oatmeal with blueberries is a great and nutritious, i stay away from raw vegetables (cooked everything, including carrots, green/red peppers, celery and you can make a nice soup mixing everything and throwing some brown rice/pasta and chicken or turkey in it), sweet potatoes are great with butter and salt, i also make my own pizza(yeast free crust, homemade tomato sauce (tomatoes, olive oil, and spices, mixed in blender or food processor and cooked for 1 hr or more if you like) and veggie cheese. i dont drink coffee, or soda anymore instead i drink chamomile tea or the decaf one, dont eat dairy, make my own sherbet, and tons of grilled chicken or turkey, again veggies are great but they have to be cooked, a little olive oil mixed with spices and fresh tomatoes cooked in a pan are to die for, just find ways to vary your veggies and meat, have fun and i hope you feel better emoticon

Just to clarify, bright red blood on the toilet paper or in the toilet are probably hemorrhoids. If there is blood in the stools themselves or even in the toilet or on your underwear, or the stools are black and tarry looking, that is a more serious concern. Mucus in the stools is not good either but can be from constipation, it is the muscus lining of the colon sloughing off. Hope this helps.

Hi all,

I have found some relief by adding hemp seed (hulled) 2 tbsp in my morning oatmeal along with flaxmeal. I am normally ib d, what really kills me is eating salad too much. I can have salad now which I couldn't before I started the above, but all in moderation.

I have had a little bright blood but only when I have constant d for a week or more and get the "roids", but no scarey signs. I think with IB that your colon just gets so irritated that if you are susceptible with roids it can start it up quite quickly and inconveniently.

Having said that I got into too many salads this week, four nights in a row and paid the price today, so it's protein potatoes and cooked veggies tonight. But got my workout in, though unfortunately left the bathroom in the gym a bit odiferous. I hate it when that happens, very embarrassing.

Good luck, just keep journalling to see what works and what doesn't, but I've heard from others that the hemp is good as it is an anti inflammatory, and I can't remember but someone else on this team finds relief with it as well. Even if that wasn't something you were interested in, the hemp oil in a smoothie might work.

Hope this helps. Be well, and know that there is always someone around to try to help or lend an ear.

Karen

Thanks. I'll look into it. I've had blood in my stools once that I've noticed.

I'm still learning what helps me too so I'm no expert at all. I've had the alternating kind but have been constipated for a YEAR. My doctor wasn't much help at all and a colonoscopy didn't show anything. The only way they diagnose IBS is to rule everything else out. Unless I have blood in my stools I don't worry too much. Bloody or tarry stools and pain in one place and fatigue and loss of appetite for me are symptoms of colitis. I know the difference between it and IBS now. those symptoms can also mean cancer or diverticulitis so if you are having anything like that you will want to be checked out. Don't mean to scare you, just want you to be aware of the possibilities.

Soluble fiber is good for D and C, helps bulk up the stool. Oatmeal is very good to try. Cooked veggies are better than raw. There are lots of suggestions on this site you could try. Also I was directed to www.helpforibs.com There is a ton of info on that site that might help you. Good luck! I hope you find some relief, living like this just stinks and you should be having the time of your life!

I'm pretty sure I have IBS-D. SInce highschool I've never been able to not have D for more than 5 days. And, that's all I do. I don't go normally at all...just all waits and then I die in the bathroom for about an hour or two. I've tried this and that and I just can't figure out what to do anymore. Pepto and Immodium are my best friends, but even then, they don't help. Just turn it all black.

Some days I just don't want to eat anymore. I've gotten to the point that I just will eat enough to get by. Other days, I'll get so hungry that I won't care and eat anything in front of me. I know I can't eat any beans or lettuce (salads). I try to avoid red meats. Other than that, I'm a poor college student living by what I can afford.

Any idea on how to help me figure out what I have? (and I don't have insurance)
