Esjie Posted February 18, 2021 Report Share Posted February 18, 2021 Honey generally is high FODMAP so this might not be for everyone. But I have found that eating Manuka honey is making some difference and helping me manage my symptoms. I decided to not worry about the FODMAPs and try it anyway. I bought a genuine medical grade New Zealand raw Manuka 400+ and take a teaspoonful 2 or 3 times a day. It's expensive but I have found a lot of benefit, and that rather surprised me but it does continue. My gut is not anywhere near as upset, and bm's are far more normal. The lower belly distension I was getting has died down and only rarely returns for a day or two. Still get wind first thing in the morning! but not at all painful, and odourless. I am a lot less scared of going to the bathroom in the morning, and feel steadier generally first thing now. I think that the honey is also helping my general strength. I prefer to take the honey on an empty stomach, and I eat it very slowly. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
