I am bloated like every day. I have horrible IBS, and I am trying to remedy the problem through my diet. IBS is supposedly related to lactose intolerance. Do you have this, by any chance?

I notice more bloating if I eat something that contains a lot of cheese and butter.

Can that be due to milk?

Hey cdmohatta, for an occasional problem such as this, you might try first remedying the problem with an elimination diet, as happytobechildfree also mentioned. If you haven't tried this, it can give you great insight as to what is causing the discomforts - some people are susceptible to discomforts caused by even otherwise healthy foods. I am currently working on an article about this - it should be up soon! By the way I appreciate all the action you give the forum!

Thanks Caramy.
I used to take Activated Carbon Tablets for relief.

I also have IBS in addition to reflux, etc.
I cannot have dairy - but it is not due to lactose, it is because of the casein and whey that are in dairy.
My other problem is fried and fatty foods.
If I eat any of the above, I am in extreme pain!

I have just been diagnosed with severe IBS. My most pain comes from eating bread products...white bread, cereal, bagels, breaded chicken and fish... my doctor tested me for Celiac disease (allergic to gluten). The only symptom I have is the pain from eating bread so she won't officially call it that. I also have a problem with fried foods. They don't bring me pain...bring on .... gross bowel movements...I love hamburgers made from turkey but if it is fried...I am running to the potty. So with a medicine called Levsin and a change in diet, I don't get as bloated and less pain.

IBS- Irritable Bowel Syndrome,
Is a disorder of motility of the entire gastrointestinal tract that produces abdominal pain, constipation, or diarrhea. and effects women 3 times more than men.In this syndrome,the gastrointestinal tract is especially sensitive to many stimuli.Stress,diet,drugs,hormones,or minor irritants may cause the gastrointestinal tract to contract abnormally. Period of stress and emotional conflict that cause depression or anxiety frequently exacerbate episodes of IBS.Some people with the syndrome appear to be much more aware of their symptoms. During an episode, the contractions of the gastrointestinal tract becomes stronger and more frequent, and the rapid transit of food and feces through the small intestine often leads to diarrhea. Crampy pain seems to result from the strong contractions of the large intestine and increased sensitivity of the pain receptors in the large intestine. There are two major types of IBS The spastic colon type,The second type mainly produces painless diarrhea or relatively painless constipation.

Treatment
Differs from person to person,People who can identify particular foods or types of stress that brings on the problem should avoid them if possible.People with abdominal distention and increased gas should avoid beans, cabbage and other foods that are hard to digest.

You described IBS perfectly. Mine is of the spastic type. The pain is the most severe pain I have ever experienced, and I have had pain before due to accidents, etc. The spasms are so severe that I can't stand up and I feel like I am on fire. Only using the bathroom will relieve this - whether it be diarrhea or not.
I am taking antidepressants to control the pain receptors - it does lessen the amount of attacks but I still get them.

This is off the subject a bit, but in regards to IBS (spastic colon type) do you notice emotional or sexual side effects? To me it seems to affect the entire person, if that makes sense.

I am doing some research now on the topic. I've found information linking breast feeding (timing of or lack of) to IBS as well as allergies. I guess the enzymes in the mother's milk binds with the developing enzymes in the new-born for long-term antibodies. That's why they give the baby to the mom right away.

A friend of mine is so miserable with their IBS they wondered if they found a lactating female would the darn thing just simply go away...lol. I know it's painstaking but it really does seem to be a dietary elimination process.

My friend wasn't breast fed as it turns out. Talk about a hard topic to bring up w/the P's... smile Does anyone have any over-the-counter remedies? I've heard aloe juice helps.

Hi Ellise,

I suffered with IBS for many years, and it is finally nearly cured. I rarely if ever have the cramps and spasms and the constipation is gone. What worked for me was TMC (traditional Chinese medicine which dealt a lot with emotional issues.)

Emotional issues like chronic nervousness or worry absolutely affect colon motility. Beginning a Yoga class is highly recommended! Do read "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz also. Pressure on the inner organs during intercourse can aggravate IBS as well, and feeling lousy in the abdomen can make you feel not-so-sexy.


There are many factors that contribute to IBS. The first place I would start is by taking 3 probiotic capsules per day, make sure you get 2 tablespoons of olive oil per day (I drizzle it on my whole grain rice) and 3 quarts of water per day.

For a while, stay away from whole grains (you will work up to eating them again!) and eat plenty of well cooked veggies. Stay away from insoluble fiber for a while, but take in lots of soluble fiber.

Fennel tea helps a lot, but drink it on an empty stomach - it doesn't seem to appreciate being mixed with food. If you can tolerate peppermint capsules, that can help too.

Another thing to consider is a vitamin B12 deficiency. Lacking in vitamin B12 can cause IBS like symptoms.

I will be posting an article on IBS soon - please do watch for it!
