Coping with irritable bowel syndrome

Keeping a food diary can help you to identify the foods that either improve or exacerbate your symptoms. Track the foods that you eat, the symptoms you have, and when they occur.

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, foods and drinks that have been shown to worsen IBS symptoms include:

high-fat foods some milk products alcoholic drinks caffeine drinks high in artificial sweeteners beans, cabbage, and other gas-causing foods

The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders also highlight  insoluble fiber, chocolate, and nuts as foods that are likely to cause problems.


Increasing your fiber intake may help to improve your symptoms of constipation caused by IBS. Foods that contain fiber include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans. Adults are recommended to consume 22 to 34 grams of fiber each day.

What is the healthiest, most natural form of almond butter available in America?

My dietitian says to get one where the brown skins are removed cause they'll just worsen my IBS problems since they make it hard to digest. I need something that is literally 100% pure almond butter, no preservatives or nothing... the best, if you know

Ooh, I have the perfect recommendation for you! Check out Almondie almond butter. They are the only almond butter brand that a. removes the brown skin from the almond (which makes it easier to digest) and b. does it through coldpress which keeps all those

Go to your local grocery store, and look for the USDA Organic on the label, or organic in general. You'll be golden. It's pretty expensive though, anywhere from 7.99 for a small container, to 14.99.

Commercially sold raw almonds are pasteurized.

I suggest buying raw unpasteurized almonds directly from growers (off ebay) soaking them (which starts the germination process) which inactivates the hard to digest enzyme & make your own

is this just IBS ? or something more?

i have been having really bad pains past few days doc said its just constipation / ibs but i keep thinking otherwise-am having stitch type pains in my left side below ribs / contraction type pains ann below belly button right down / pains all top of legs

Well, i have IBS problemas and all your symptoms sound like something else. Of course I am not a doctor, but I think that you should look for a second opinion.

Good luck
