Tip for IBS sufferers

11
Found 20th Apr
Hey, so I've been suffering with IBS for about 6 years. I've tried many probiotics over the years in pill and yoghurt form.

Ive stopped buying supplements as it was getting too costly and wasnt seeing a great deal of difference, if any

I now found that Lidls own brand probiotic drink which costs under £2 for 8 and tastes a lot nicer than yakult imo is really helping

Could it be the cheapest remedy is the most effective? Im stunned but delighted, if of course it really is the yoghurt drink working and not other factors...

Thoughts? Hope this helps someone.

It's good to hear you're at last getting some respite from that dreadful condition.

I'm not sure we know anywhere near enough about IBS to even come up with what we might see as a tried and tested strategy.

But, hopefully this stuff is going to work for you.
I buy Colpermin off eBay in the 100's, could get them from the doc for free but would rather NHS money went on more important things.
I've tried other brands but Colpermin seems to work much better.
Changing your diet is the best bet.
Try blackseed oil ...

Agree - diet and lifestyle are key but it's knowing what to eliminate e.g dairy, gluten etc.

Agree aswell, I did a fodmap diet, worked out my triggers and now avoid them (cheese was the main culprit) and I don't have too many issues or flare ups anymore.
Peppermint tea or capsules?
Probiotics really do help, but I guess it depends on which ibs symptoms you have as they vary widely. Diet is so important and watch out for the likes of coke, if you drink a lot of it like I did it can make things worse. 12 years since I stoop drinking it and probiotic really helped. Now can eat out which was a nightmare for 10 years before that and though I get flare ups occasionally it’s much better than it was.

Peppermint tea is a godsend for sure. For some reason the capsules don't agree with me, the oil seems to travel back up to my throat

I think I need to go dairy free apart from my daily shot of probio yog. i do worry about calcium but i guess there's calcium in other things

Have you tried any of the lactofree products? Dairy but just with the lactose taken out.

Some good recommendations here. I've been buying the Lidl probiotic yoghurt for a few years and really helps. I drink a lot of peppermint tea too. As someone else mentioned, it's finding what's right for you and to establish the things which trigger flare ups. I've also massively lessened my intake of dairy products the past year which has also helped - for instance, I now only drink Lidl's soya milk with my coffee and cereal and I've come to really like the taste.
