    Does anyone suffer from IBS as well as the Fibro, Chronic Fatique, and all the other fun issues that come in a package tightly wrapped up. I take probiotics. I lost about 60lbs. last year not even trying. I am a very healthy eater. I don't smoke or drink. I am lactose intolerant so I stay away from milk products.

    Unfortunately, I take an unreal amount of meds. I also take an unreal amount of Immodium A-D. I was taking Metamucil 2X a day. What else???

    Hi cowlady,

    I am sorry that you are suffering like that. It is possible to heal from IBS.

    Hopefully, your Dr has ruled out other serious issues that would cause unintended weight loss and bowel problems.

    Functional Medicine doctors get to the root causes of symptoms such as yours. Conventional medicine just covers up the symptoms.

    Several problems usually contribute to IBS. Leaky gut, food sensitivities, unbalanced gut flora, the standard american diet, toxins, etc, all can lead to IBS.

    Please read the following information and I think you will gain much hope that you can recover from IBS by making mostly diet and lifestyle changes.

    If you would like more info, just ask.
