Shawneric, I do understand that emotional upset is a huge factor for IBS. I am doing things to manage that side of things as well including yoga, meditation, anxiety support group, and I am also seeing a psychologist who is working with me on cognitive behavioral therapy.

I've done Michael's hypnosis tapes one time through a couple years ago (with no noticeable symptom reduction), and started them again a few months ago. But I found myself tense and upset while listening - when I was feeling vulnerable a lot of emotional troubles would come to the surface and distract me from Michael's voice. I asked for Marilyn's opinion, and she said that I should take a break and see if those issues resolve. They are complex, stemming from a chaotic childhood, so I am working with my therapist on that piece. For now, I am holding off on the hypnosis until my mind is more able to focus on addressing IBS. Then I will start over again.

I also understand the act of eating itself can trigger symptoms. And as I said, I don't believe the diet to be a be all, end all answer, but I wonder if I am doing the best I can in that department, thus my question about the study. You answered my question about the study - that the IgG antibodies are not a clear indicator of anything.

I met with a registered dietitian just last week. She was surprisingly knowledgeable about IBS, compared to most medical professionals I've worked with, including my two GI doctors. She said no two IBS patients are alike in terms of what foods they can tolerate, that's a very individual thing. She did recommend I try eating a little dairy since I've been off it for three months. I did this and the next day I had D and nausea all day.

She also recommended that I have a RAST test done by an allergy doctor to check for actual food allergies, so I am scheduled for that Friday. Other than that, she said I need to do my best to incorporate protein and fruits and veggies with my complex carbs, and continue taking a multivitamin to cover any deficiencies I may be missing in my diet.

I suppose I am looking for an answer that isn't there. I don't know.
