Less stress would be nice but after 18 years it's unlikely.....I'm possibly more stressed than I have been in years -it's been a hard year with my Dad being diagnosed with lung cancer, mymum having bypass surgery & DDleaving home
I'd wondered about the Zinc as this is (apparently) given in 3rd world countries for chronic diahorrea (sp)
TBH I suspect it's none of them! IBS is one of those things that flares and remises. Zinc is known to support the immune system but unless IBS is auto-immune - eg undiagnosed coeliac -then that's not likely.
