IBS

My wife suffers from Irritable Bowel Syndrom.
I would like to know more about this. What kind of treatment is there for her. She says there is none? Its hard on me, because for the last couple years I've worked here at the house. And she dont get much time for herself, with nobody Around like she needs. So its been harder in the last two years for her.Does most everybody with ibs get intolerable to deal with? Is there anything out there that I can do that will help me help her? Anything i can read that will help me understand more? I love my wife very much and want her to feel better.
God Bless
Thank You
Ben

Ben, have you checked the Archives to see what help is available? Also, R., posted an article regarding IBS that you might find of interest.

Imagine being in her shoes. Eating becomes a thing of disease rather than of health. Living with constant pain and discomfort for the rest of your life would put you in a delicate mood as well. If she has had this for years and you are just NOW wanting to learn something about it speaks volumes. There are sites ALL OVER the internet dealing with IBS. Just type IBS into any search engine and you'll find more than you could ever read. Educate yourself or else you'll become even more of a problem for her. You need to understand her disease if you want to help. Any library has tons and tons of books on this subject. Go to the library and check some out. Don't add anymore stress to this persons life as stress is a big trigger to more symptoms. Get this person to look into "garden of life" products. Get a test called "CDSA" -comprehensive digestive stool analysis, from Great smokies lab. That would be a good start.

Stay positive and practice forgiveness and be patient with her.

Hi, Ben.

Listen to bepatient and Archive.

In the meantime your wife needs to go to the LGS archives to begin to understand what she would have to do to resolve this. She is the one who is doing most of the suffering and she is the one who will have to do the work to resolve it!

She can start with the home page article and then go to the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

Have her let us know what she learns.

Walt

That there's no treatment for IBS is a lie. There's none she knows of.

Stress is a huge factor in triggering IBS symptoms, and managing stress is extremely effective. I've attended a lecture conducted by an HMO organization for IBS patients, and heard from even some dumbasses how effective managing stress was for them.

I've also read reports from a person in live-food yahoo group who suffers from either Crohn's disease or IBS (I bet it's pretty difficult to tell them apart sometimes), and he got a huge improvement (from being unable to eat pretty much anything to being able to eat pretty much anything with virtually no problems) in a week or so from consuming so called Effective Microorganisms (EM). He's posted his reports on IBS list as well. Ask him about that list as I don't know what it is. Join that group, search archives, ask questions, etc. You can learn about EM at http://www.rawpaleodiet.org/em/.

But if your wife chooses to believe that there's cure and prefers to suffer... You can lead a horse to water...
