I was diagnosed with IBS 2 yrs ago and basically thought it was the end of my world. I found myself shut up in the house unless I was going to yet another DR appt where they really were not helping me. My specialist ended up prescribing me a Anti Depression med to help and to a certain extent it did a little but it also made me gain weight. While trying to get the extra weight off I really got into the Dr Oz show and started trying some of the supplements he spoke of. The first one I tried was the Raspberry Keytone and when I tell you that helped me a lot I mean my stomach problems changed within like 2 weeks. Now with this new found relief I started trying other things as well and the coconut oil tabs really worked for me as well. Where i use to have problems after I ate or just attacks out of the blue I don't anymore. So far a lot of the weight has come off and I have not been afraid to venture outside the house anymore. I just wanted to share this info with you all to let you know to keep the faith there is help and out there.View Thread
