I was diagnosed with IBS when I was in high school. I tried so many different things over the years that didn't work, and finally just learned to live with it. About 2 years ago I started focusing more on healthy eating, and started eating 1 yogurt every day for either breakfast, or a mid-morning snack. I didn't eat any special kind of yogurt, or any specific brand, just whatever is on sale, and regular ol' yogurt. Now, I eat strictly Greek yogurt, but starting out, I didn't. After doing this consistently for a while (I didn't notice a change overnight, it took several months) I noticed that my IBS symptoms started to subside. Now, about 2 years later, my symptoms are virtually non-existent (and have been for quite some time). If I run out of yogurt and I go a few days without it, I have noticed my symptoms will start to come back. It may not work for everybody, but if you're like I was and have tried everything and nothing's worked, it might be worth a shot.
