IBS/ sensitive stomach people, come hither

What is your current treatment plan? Do you take supplements? I found an enzyme at Whole Foods called Wholezymes, and that helps so much, as well as a daily propbiotic. I also obviously avoid my trigger foods:


Diet soda

artificial sweeteners of any kind (even stevia makes me sick)

Lettuce

Milk and Ice Cream

Coffee creamer (every single time, even if its dairy free)

I had to find my triggers and keep my distance but sometimes something falls through. I take a probiotic daily and if I happen to have something that destroys my innards, Imodium and lots of water.

Honestly just too much processed foods. I was bad last week and I was craving s sub. I ate a six inch Italian sub and paid for it later.

Alot of people dealing with IBS feel better when removing gluten. That could maybe be worth a try. Gluten causes alot of digestive issues.

Avoiding all nightshade vegetables, dairy free, and I avoid overly processed carbohydrates. I eat a non dairy yogurt for good probiotics daily and drink lots of water.

Did you know the creamers that say non-dairy contain dairy products? Nothing to do with IBS help, but it makes me mad.

Yeah I got rid of lettuce or green leaves (any kind) a long time ago. I used to have huge bouts of IBS until I started monitoring what I ate and sure enough it was lettuce or anything leafy. I haven't had anything leafy in over 6 years and I'm good :) my doctor said it was because I just could digest it properly where most people can break things like that down I just can't . Now if I eat cook stuff like cabbage then I'm ok. It's odd all around:(

Yes, there's a difference between non-dairy and dairy free. The almond milk creamers would be dairy free, but the coffeemate creamers that say non-dairy have casein. 😞
