hi guys,
im also a chronic IBS sufferer .
before u go down the route of laxatives, try the more subtle helpers.
fibresure is what i use and it helps a great deal. there is also benefiber and u can get fibre 89 from ur cdc.
also for those that are managing to go but not happy with the 'amount' try psylium husks (sold in many health shops) as these help give u 'bulk'
hope this helps.
nursebex: thats not unusual as ur body has to get used to the concentrated amounts of vitamins and minerals going into ur system. try splitting ur packs into 6 smaller meals for a few days until ur body adapts.

I'd definately recommend taking a fibre supplement daily as it really does help.

You can buy Fibre89 from your CDC, or use Fibresure - in tablet form (which is psyllium husks) or in powder form (which is inulin, same as Fibre89). You can get Fibresure from Tesco & the like. Psllium husks in powder or tablet form are available from most health shops.

After almost 2 weeks of being bunged up & miserable i started taking Fibresure tablets and i now go to the loo daily - twice today :D tmi sorry lol - I feel a million times better and, as you can see below, it hasnt affected my losses.

I have found the opposite though while on SS, I've had the runs :eek:

Might help to have a large glass of water before or after your shake/soup, as the water will help the mineral/vitamin content to 'disperse' a little more. I have found that this has helped me.

Thanks for the tip, will also try the Fibresure alongside the shakes and soups see if that helps!

Must admit I'm feeling really bunged up today, it's making me feel a tad sicky as well!
Will certainly have to look into getting something, will pop to a health store today

Hope everyone's tummies are feeling a little less bunged up!

Quick question, can you add the Fibresure to your shakes or do you have to make it up with water? Not sure why but it makes me gag a bit :eek:

Thanks in advance x x x

yes you can add it to your shakes, or switch to the capsules I find them great :)

Hi all,

Green Tea is the solution for me. Drink about 3 or 4 cups in about 1 - 1.5 hours and I find.... just have (sorry too much info).

Was feeling bloated but not from water if you know what I mean. Try it and really feel what it does to you body/bowel.

Good luck
