I am reading up on IBS and it seems to me (with the little research I have done thus far) that IBS is due to an imbalance in our guts. Our diets are way out of whack. Imagine that.
I am not a cold turkey person. I prefer to do things in baby steps. I am on my way to giving up caffiene (Another item that tears up your insides). I am down to one cup a day and boy was that tough.
Another thing they say is the acid in the diet. When there is not enough, then them nasty bad-microbes hav e a field day with all the carbs that end up sitting in our guts. It is their fuel to wreak havoc on our intestines.
Can we eliminate IBS? Not to sure, but I know for a fact I csn lessen my husbands condition. I just don't know if he is willing to do what it takes to at least jump start this adventure.
You guys are grand, and thanks for all the wonderful replies!!
