Need suggestions badly
      09/02/08 04:57 PM

Hello all:

I am new the forum and have been suffering diarrhea predominant IBS to varying degrees since around 2003. For the longest time I did not understand there was a serious problem. I thought I had developed a food allergy but when the problems steadily got worse I became very concerned. I noticed my problem tripled after I had my gall bladder removed back in 2005. Ever since then its gotten steadily more severe and the past few months have been a living hell. It has completely changed my life and I am at the end of my rope. I am going to see a specialist next week but I am not optimistic based on what I have heard others say about gut doctors.

I have been trying all sorts of supplements and have had different levels of success but nothing seems to work consistently for more than a few days. Like most others I have done tons of research online and ran across products which claim to work wonders. I am very skeptical about such claims and wanted to know what products you have tried and what works. Two products claiming to basically "cure" IBS are Bavolex and Healthy Bowel Support. The first says its an all-natural cure and the second purports to introduce serotonin support to the bowel. Both say they will give you the 100% money back promise so I am considering giving one or both a shot. I am feeling really desperate these days. I am due to travel for three weeks next month and need to find something to control this once and for all. To put it bluntly, its gotten so bad as of late I simply do not want to eat anymore since it gives me stomach pain and doesn't stay in my body long anyway.

I am open to hearing ANY suggestions that might help. I have read tons of literature but can't find anything that works consistently. Right now I am trying all sorts of peppermint oils, prebiotics and anti-diarrheals as well as fiber supplementation but having very limited success.
