Have had recurrent IBS for almost 15 years, it comes and goes but is worse right now than it has been for a while. A friend has suggested I try aloe vera juice, but before I do this I just wondered if anyone had had any success with this or if there are any other remedies I could try. I tend to 'treat' my symptoms (agonising spasms) with nothing more than lying very still on my stomach until the spasm has passed so tbh trying anything at all other than that is probably a good step forward!
I've tried aloe vera and it worked but as well as stopping my runs it also bunged me up - so a bit too effective! I've found it's quite good if used like you would paracetamol - at the onset of symptoms rather than every day. You can get capsules from Holland & Barrett and I just take one whenever my stomach starts to grumble.
