Re: Anyone currently using the audio program?

I noticed from Marilyn who seems to manage the IBS hypnosis program for Heather that she had to go through the program 3 times to find some significant relief. I have had IBS for about 7 years and am currently 68 years old. I have been lead to believe that the older you are and the darker the hole you have been in, the harder it is to achieve success with the program. I am currently on day 77 of the program. Maybe part of the problem is that I am not following the diet in it's strictest sense. I have eliminated all dairy except cheese and almost all read meat. I still eat deep fat fried chicken and some small amounts of butter which may be most of the problem. I am still struggling at day 77. Some days are OK, but some days I have a constant urge to head to the bathroom up to 5-6 times per day. I take heather's tummy fiber which seems to be hard to regulate. I started slowly and gradually worked up to nearly 3 tablespoons per day. They may help some, but have not stopped the D urge. I cannot use the peppermint tea or pills she recommends because I have GERD. The peppermint makes the GERD much worse. Some days, I simply do not know where to turn. When all else fails, I take lamotil to slow down the D. Hope you have better luck with the program than me.
