Hey guys! How do you guys deal with IBS? What foods do you eat that don’t irritate your bowels? I’m having a really rough time trying to get my bowels under control, lots of laxatives either don’t work or work too much, I don’t really know what to do to keep things regular without it being strenuous on my body.

    I would check out the FODMAP diet. I learned a lot about what foods might be better or worse for me. I did not do it properly however, and if you are serious about finding out good foods for you it will take serious dedication. I would at least check it out though because I learned a lot about food in general. ❤️

    I started out by just trying to avoid dairy and that works ok. I agree with FODMAP. I haven’t really tried it because I live in a dorm and don’t have full control over what food is available. But a lot of what I already avoid aligns with the FODMAP.

    I have the constipation form of IBS and I found that ANY beans and legumes were just awful for me. Of course… I love peanut butter and hummus so….

    I'm currently working with a nutritionist and I've figured out that beta casein type A1 leads to many of my issues, but now I'm trying to figure out the rest

    Low FODMAP, gluten/dairy/alcohol/caffeine/carbonation/aspartame free. I work with a naturopath and am doing acupuncture, too.

    I’ve found eating mostly well raised animal products and raw milk to be helpful
