  2. The lactoferrin test is new to me. I understand that it is also used with IBD. Yes, you are right about breathing affecting the vagal nerve!
  3. I decided to try GNC"Milk Thistle Sport" supplement which contains Digestive enzymes as well as milk thistle. Perhaps you could also try milk thistle. So I take one with the first bite. I only take them if I'm eating beans, cabbage or other foods that are hard for me to digest. Never thought of taking two. If you read the label of the bottles they'll tell you which type of enzymes they contain. Some are for fat some for protein, etc. I always search for ones that have a high amount of lipase 'cause I can't process more than 10 grams of fat per meal. I live in Puerto Ri
  4. yes, you were helpful to me but when you say that enzymes helped you, how did they do it? And how many did you take before meals? Inviato dal mio iPhone utilizzando Tapatalk
  5. I do find digestive enzymes helpful. However I find it useful to avoid any trigger foods as much as possible. For e.g. I don't do well w/ fruit juice, large portions of fruit, any high fat foods, cake, cookies, etc. I try to be mindful before a meal, considering how will I feel later if I eat this food. Hope this is helpful.
  6. try to chew food and then put probiotic into your mouth, with tongue hide it inside chewed food and swallow it. problem resolved
  7. yes, but I only find mixed probiotic capsules, and I can't swallow them hahaha Inviato dal mio iPhone utilizzando Tapatalk
  8. These are really good resources Jeffrey, thanks. I had the calprotectin test summer last year (2020) and it was okay. No inflammation. So that ruled out quite a few things it could have been, without need for a colonoscopy (which was super news for me!) Plus I had the FIT test, and a lactoferrin test. Diaphragmatic breathing....now there is something in that. I think it affects the vagus nerve positively. Since starting that I re-found my singing voice a bit too! I don't sound like a half dead frog any more! wow. When I start singing in the bathroom....that's when things will sta
  9. 21th january i had 24h fasting. i drunk cup of water with lemon and ginger, clean water, tea and coffee (yes, i had coffee and i didn'y poop whole day ) next day, as usually i started day with cooked rice and carrot + probiotics. at launch i had grilled vegetables with scrambled eggs + vitamins. then i ate what i wanted. i think i had caffee, something sweet, etc. result: i went poop at night, i think it was between 8PM - 9PM. so i didn't need to poo about 48hours. probiotics / vitamins - the same as above notes: i was lazy to add psyllium to my routine
  10. As far as i know digestive enzymes are using for bloating. But firstly i would try to don't drink water after meal (1-2 hours).
  11. Yes. Try to focus to these bacterias: Saccharomyces Boulardii, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus rhamnosus. In case of missing prebiotics in your pills you will need to add it. Just eat some piece of apple with yogurt and use pills. Unfortunately, triggers are not about food, but about your mind, even if you are not aware of it. You can try to do a little experiment. If you think that some food is trigger, just try to don't eat it at morning, and eat it on evening. I thnk you will be OK.

    I’m new to the group and it’s actually for my good friend who is suffering from this in the hopes he will find some different ways to help with this. How does this work exactly?

  14. Hello guys, have any of you found it beneficial to take probiotics everyday? and be able to eat your own trigger foods? Inviato dal mio iPhone utilizzando Tapatalk

  17. Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Pregnancy. Am J Gastroenterol. 2021 Jan 21;: Authors: Moosavi S, Pimentel M, Wong MS, Rezaie A Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects a significant percentage of the general population and is more common in women. A large proportion of women affected with IBS are of childbearing age; however, there is a paucity of studies and guidelines to specifically address the epidemiology, course, maternal/fetal prognosis, or management of IBS in pregnancy. This scarcity of literature on IBS and pregnancy poses significant challenges to healthcare prov

  21. An evaluation of dietary adequacy among patients with constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome in Malaysia. Intest Res. 2021 Jan 22;: Authors: Shafiee NH, Razalli NH, Mokhtar NM, Tan E, Ali RAR Abstract Background/Aims: Substantial proportions of patients with constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C) linked their symptoms with particular intake of foods. However, there is lack of current data regarding the intake among IBS-C patients before any dietary interventions. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the dietary adequacy among IBS-C against the stand
  22. That little "hack" isn't really a healing thing. It's just useful as a quick household remedy in an emergency and does work (or did for me a couple of times when I tried it.) But really it's just a "band-aid" on a problem, as it doesn't heal anything or solve anything. No I haven't tried inulin. That's interesting as it will have better benefits to the body I would think, than cornstarch!
  23. That is all very good advice @tmsh thank you for posting that link. Stress management is so important. I have recently also become more conscious and mindful about breathing. It's so simple, but I found I had got into unconscious habits by ignoring my breathing, which tightened up my whole body and mind (and I am sure, also gut!) Unknown to me I was encouraging fight-or-flight by forgetting to breathe naturally. That is speeding up my gut, giving less time for water absorption....and maybe even nutrient absorption? My gut was running on fast forward. I was a shaky mess in the morning
  24. The less time you dedicate to your stressors on a daily basis the more your time will free up for things you actually want to do, including giving you time to incorporate some of those other techniques like establishing a regular exercise routine or carving out space to meditate. Don’t think about these things every day anymore. Free up your time and make space for calm in your mind. Establish habits that will do the thinking for you. More details here.

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2021 Jan 18;: Authors: Wongtrakul W, Charoenngam N, Ungprasert P Abstract OBJECTIVE: Even though evidence showing increased prevalence of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) among migraine patients exists, it has not been well-established and the magnitude of association varies substantially across the studies.
