Ooh that's what I need then - I'm all over the place. It's a tad pricey isn't it? Perhaps I'll stock up when it's on offer.

I will buy some - sounds good. Is it wheat or oats?? Wheat bloats me & irrites my ibs.

I have tried so far - Aloe vera juice, Peppermint capsules (for ibs), various cereals (most irritate my ibs), lactolose, fibogel and nothing works so far - willing to try anything.

I find orange juice does the trick - brazil nuts can too.

Am finding now that regular "proper" exercise helps.

Sunflower seeds works really well too blush

Porridge every morning with added sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and any sort of dried fruit - raisins, apricots, berries. Sweeten with a little brown sugar, honey or maple syrup. Drink loads of water. And it helps to lower your cholesterol.

I have really bad IBS and this suits me very well.

Yeh leave out the wheat for a few days even the wholegrain. It spazzes up your colon if you have IBS. Loads of apples and daily figs/prunes/apricots in porridge.

Loads of water, loads of exercise (espesh crunches and running).
Beans, broccoli, plums.

First thing when I wake up, I drink a herbal tea with half a lemon juiced in it. Plus about 500mls-1 litre water. Then after 20 mins or so, an apple. The warm liquid and lemon juice work wanders for the bowels and liver plus you get the fibre from the apple.
