Cure For Ibs ?

I'm on a mission to stop my stomach from hurting all the time. I'm on the gluten free, food sensitivity, vegan diet and I have added oils with EFA's to my diet for nutrition and to aid with chronic "C". So far, so good. My bowels are moving like clockwork and my stomach is no longer churning. Just left with a little gas related chest pain, but it's really not a big deal at this point.

I've read where You can't cure IBS with diet, but I am beginning to wonder. Anyone else ? Anyone trying oils / with EFA's ?

BTW, all the meds were either too strong or useless. Zelnorm worsened my stomach cramps.

Thanks for your help ... Marcia

Were you tested for Celiac? Many times, celiac has been misdiagnosed as IBS. If a the diet you are following makes you feel better, then you are most likely intolerant of something that you were eating, and that is what was causing your pain. Many of us started gluten-free trying to find a "cure" for our illnesses.

Going gluten-free and dairy-free has eliminated my IBS symptoms. Since IBS is not a disease, there is no cure anyways.

Thanks for your replies. SOooo, does this mean I can stop waiting for the pain to come back ????

I've been on this diet for 6 months now and mostly pain free for about a month, simply because I was in denial about a few foods I didn't want to part with.

Any word on the "C" and using oils to help deal with it ? I'm just using what the bottle labels as the RDA amount or less and I feel fine. Cramped a little in the beginning, but not anymore.

Unfortunately, I wasn't tested for celiac. I saw a GI for 2 years and he did an endo and colonoscopy, but didn't look for celiac. My GP diagnosed me as celiac based on positive diet response in Sept 05.

Thanks again folks ... marcia

Well after getting a good nites sleep, it dawned on me that I was obviously misdiagnosed with IBS. DUH !!!!! That's what ya'll have been trying to tell me, but I couldn't process it. The old brain fog.

Good foods = no cramps, pain, "D", or "C"

Bad foods = cramps, pain, "D" and "C"

Don't ya'll just love explaining things fifty times ..... Thank you .... Marcia

That's ok, Marcia. With some of the doctors that some of us have had, we have learned to patiently explain things over and over. As the fog clears, you will understand!
