Hang in there! It's harder to get stable than to stay stable. The longer you can keep your gut going in a good rhythmic motility, the longer it will stay that way. So it's ok if you start out with just a few days of stability and then things flare. Stay the course, go back to plain soluble fiber foods/strong peppermint or fennel tea for a day or two, and you should stay stable longer each time you move forward.

Hopefully that pattern just continues, and the more it does the more confidence you will have that this is getting better, the big picture is improving and the bumps in the road are getting easier and less frequent.

And sometimes IBS just flares for who knows what reason - if that happens don't kill yourself trying to figure it out, accept the occasional bolt of lightning from the unknown, and know that you can get on top of things quickly again.

Keep me posted! You can also email help @ as that can hit my radar faster than the boards.
