For the most part IBS is an idiopathic word given to the masses when a Dr. cannot resonably to what the "problem" might be.

Generally, IBS can show up some similarities in ppl who have it, but the triggers are usually different for most.

Everything in ones life can have an effect on how the body functions.
Yes diet, excercise, suppliments, mental health all play a role...but inless one
starts to eliminate some of the "bad" things in their life...the situation will not change.

I love raw nuts...but most do not like me.
No wheat what so ever...most glutens set me off period!
No dairy...not a good thing for me.
No apples

Marshmallow root works well, pro-biotics help a lot, digestive enzymes.
Everone is different...but one has to start somewhere.

I have it too....and its being totally reversed by the cleanse i'm doing. www.drnatura.com Colonix advanced internal cleansing system. No fasting involved, no dietary changes needed.

Its 3 simple steps, 4 pills in the morning, 15 mintues later I take the fiber mix in 8 oz of apple juice, fill the bottle back up with 8 more oz of water, and make sure I drink the rest of the 64 oz of water for the day, then thier cup of herbal tea at night.

Its gentle, no need to be afraid of not being near a bathroom, and its extreemly effective. Read the testimonies, look at the picture gallery. That kind of stuff is getting cleared out of my system.

Also, I'm taking the probiotic suppliment to replace what has been lost due to antibiotic use in the past.

Since I started it, my dark under eye circles are going away, my nails are growing stronger and are thicker, I used the bathroom about 3 times a day now, (which is considered "NORMAL" and healthy, I have more energy and I've lost 10 lbs on it the first month. No more bloated feeling, no more achyness, no more heartburn or indigestion after a meal. My female cycle is also becoming shorter, less heavy and not so painful.

I've been recommending this to EVERYONE since I started doing it. I have a few other illnesses related to the environment thats out of whack inside me that is having a good effect on as well.

Just go and read it...you'll see.....

He's got an overgrowth of candida and a build up. The cleanse I suggested not only kills that, but it also gets rid of the mucoid plaque that is lining his intestinal track. It holds undigested food, toxins, poisions, chemical residue, hormones from the foods we eat, parasites and the above mentioned candida. It prevents the nutrients from the foods we eat being absorbed. The lack of probiotics in the system causes us to not make the b vitamins, and it IS our immune system.

The stuff ranges from light tan to black, its rubbery, the darker it is, the older it is, the harder it is. It can be the consistancy of tire rubber. Some of it looks like chicken livers in a pair of panty hose due to the natural shape of the intestinal track. Check out the pictures, I swear, you will want that stuff out of you. There are many many pics customers have sent in. YUCK!

hypnosis ??? Nonsense.. woken up with an attack at 3:00 in the morning has nothing to do with stress.. It is all diet related.. As mentioned above you have to find your triggers and avoid... Oils, Alcohol, Dairy... all hard to digest stuff..
Oatmeal, Apples.. Soluble fiber is the key.. go to helpfor ibs/com
Watch the pepto though too much and when you have an attack you bleed from a weaker system

as others have suggested, get some probiotics like acidophilus and lactobacillus, use psyllium fiber, and even though he says he isn't stressed, IBS has been known to be psychosomatic.

Try completely eliminating gluten and casein from the diet.

These are proteins that can cause problems when incompletely digested and then they can combine to create a toxin that irritates the nervous system.

Gluten is in wheat and some other grains, and casein is in dairy.

Be careful of even small amounts which can be added to many processed foods.
Read labels carefully.

This often works when nothing else will.

All vegetables, meats and fruits are ok. Rice and potatoes can replace the carbs, but for gout, remove all meat for at least 2 weeks. Gout is caused by crystallized urea. Urea only is produced by eating meat. Alcohol can make gout worse, but removing alcohol alone isn't enough to cure it.

There is the cause and then there is the effect. IBS is only the effect. Trying to treat the effect with 'food' does nothing to treat the cause - kind of like backing up a semi from Maine to California. It can be done, but there is an easier way.
The cause is stress, still lodged in his solar plexus chakra. Tell your friend to find a good Pranic Healer and have it cleared out. Then he will feel better than ever and he can eat whatever he wants.

For many, stress does aggravate the condition. But for many, problems with certain foods are also a common problem.

Fried, and fatty foods, can cause inflammation in the bowels.

Food allergies, like those to certain nuts, dairy, or wheat allergies like gluten intolerance, can also be a problem.

Alcohol and caffeine can aggravate the symptoms for some.

For some, it's genetic. I've had issues with it from time to time. My mother had severe IBS for many years.

Low stomach acid may be a problem for some, because food does not get properly digested enough after it leaves the stomach and enters the intestines. Some medications like acid reducers, etc, lower stomach acid.

For some, there can also be an uneven level of good versus bad bacteria in the lower intestines. Many things can lead to these uneven levels.

Stress, food allergies, or sensitivities, or family history, seem to be the main culprit for most.

Every few years, the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) publishes a position statement regarding recommendations for the management of IBS, based on a review and analysis of available clinical research.

Knowing what is “state of the art” in terms of IBS management will help you take a more active role in your treatment partnership with your doctor.

What’s New:

Diagnosis

The ACG now recommends that all IBS patients be screened for celiac disease and lactose intolerance due to being at higher risk for having these conditions.

Check out the SHINE protocol, by Jacob Teitelbaum.

Second the candida theory...heard this guy on the radio, says that folks who take the SHINE for sinus problems, also get cured for IBS.

I have celiac disease(gluten intolerance), and its commonly misdiagnosed as IBS. My mom has celiac disease and for years she was told it was IBS. One thing i noticed you said was that it was triggered by stress and never went away. Celiac disease can be dormant and trigger from stress or a car wreck... or any big event in your life.

You can use a psyllium fiber supplement to help his IBS. Konsyl is available over-the-counter and has no additives / sugars. Keep hydrated though.

Irritable bowel syndrom usually comes on during times of extreme stress and then tapers off .
If you are looking for natural remedies try a peppermint tea bag infused w/lukewarm (12oz.)or cold water and mix a teaspoon for starters of slippery elm bark powder this is a great demuluscent and it will help calm and cool your yang in your stomach. Plus it is a great digestion aid and very nutritious . You can purchace slippery elm bark from a online herb store if you don't have one around that has this. (it looks gross but doesn't have any taste)

What you need to remember about IBS is that is the spasms in your intestines that are making you uncomfortable and the fact that you have these spasms makes your food digest slower so therefore some of it sits and ferments and adds gas on top of injury.
Make sure your probiotics are up to snuff,
increase your fiber a little bit at a time so as not to overwhelm your system
and find away to release the tension so that your GI tract does not have to pay for this.

I heard someone take that Activia Challenge and succeeded. I dont' know if it qualifies for something better than a Dr.'s opinion, but it helped me clean up, plus the blueberry's pretty tasty.

Alfalfa
Aloe vera
Peppermint and ginger have helped many.

Don't eat to close to bedtime.

It may be wise to use milk thistle extract to clean your liver also.

A high fiber diet.and essential fatty acids..Flax oil is good.

Avoid animal fat, butter,sugar,booze and sodas.
Check for food allergies. Very important.
Friendly bacteria is good also.

Of course the "check with your Dr"....Disclaimer applies.

curcumin is a strong anti-inflammatory.

For IBS inflammation, I guess you don't want the more bio-available forms of curcumin, since it seems logical that you want the curcumin in contact with the inflamed bowel, not passed out of the GI tract.

bulk curcumin (and many other phyto products) here: kalyx.com

I use Imodium, probiotic, Prilosec, sometimes Zantac----- and none of these daily.

Intermittent fasting. Actually tried it to help with weight loss and did lose 5 pounds within two weeks, but it has also helped my (mild case of) IBS. Stress seems to really cause the most severe flare ups though, so I try to avoid it at any cost (no easy feat though).
