I don't think you were being disrespectful...just honest...and scared. I think you are thinking maybe it works as a placebo effect...or like a self fullfilling prophecy?

I think it really has helped many people. But I think for those it hasn't helped, those people mostly post in the Living Room or leave the boards.

this website is dedicated to promoting the EFI way of treating IBS...diet along with hypnosis/yoga/supplements.

I think I'm one of the few who still asks questions and answers them on the Eating Board even though the diet hasn't helped me either. I keep hoping, over time, and with implementing other things, like cognitive therapy, exercise, spirituality...that maybe one day I will find some type of relief. The principles do make sense.

I know it's hard, isn't it. To read other people getting better on this diet and we are doing the exact same diet...yet continue to suffer. It's only natural to question the validity of diet. It's up to each individual person as to whether they want to keep trying this diet or move on to something else. I have chosen to stick with it. I can't give up 1 1/2 years of "working the program" just to give up wondering if I would have felt better if only I had given it more time.

Email me whenever you want. I understand the sadness, the anger, the disappointment, the jealously, the pain, wanting to just cry and cry and cry. And keep wondering why the diet is not working for us and it does for so many others. It doesn't seem fair, does it.

BTW, I've been on this diet for over 1 1/2 years.
