My point is my diarrhea has finally stopped - and I tried everything including going for numerous tests that all came out negative. Truth be told, the theory works and if you check the internet - food combinations can make a difference. Many use this approach because it has worked. Finally I found something that has worked for me too - and might for others. I really do not give a hoot about what this doctor did or didn't do - all I care about is not having IBS-D. Instead of being skeptical, why not try it out and see if this approach works for you. It might not - but then again, different people have to try different things that will work for them. I truly was skeptical and didn't think anything would work. Having ISB-D is a terrible thing - especially since I teach and am unable to leave the room when I feel an attack coming on. Now I no longer have that worry and I am very grateful for a way to live worry free. At least for now it is working - and I am glad for the respite.
