Hi everyone I’m new here and wanted to find out what other people are going thought for ibs and possibly celiac disease. I have been dealing with ibs symptoms for nearly 10 years. I recently just found out I also might have celiac. I’ve been through many many gastroenterologists and most of them say I either don’t have ibs or some say I have a “sensitive stomach”. I finally went to osteopathic dr. And she was the one who pointed out I might have celiac! But she definitely knew I had ibs as well. Does anyone go through periods of time where you have symptoms for like 3 months straight and then your fine for 4 months and then back at it again? That’s literally what I’m going though haha

      I was diagnosed with celiac in 1990 and when that diet failed ..retested to be given IBS diagnosis! Those drugs for IBS. gave me no relief! I have chronic D and had reflux/indigestion, numerous food intolerances. I tried many alternatives and a leaky gut program …all failed. I was highly recommended to research the Medical Medium and after reading his very first book published I had answers…Hope! I started his protocols in 2019 and am free of reflux, indigestion, food intolerances… even healed dry eye, eczema! I read all his books(can get them at your library too) but bought a few for reference and recipes. But his info is online also . Can follow on Facebook or Instagram! I was desperate but yet researched enough to strongly feel not a scam! His protocols saved me… it’s hard work…need dedication to stay with it thru detoxing! Im not 100% healed of my chronic D but is so much better I enjoy life now..can leave my home and go on short trips!!! Here is some info from online! Yes there’s always someone to “boo” the MM… I’ve read of and followed many who are so grateful to have his protocols available to heal their chronic disease! You can listen to podcast in it or read the article! https://www.medicalmedium.com/blog/secrets-about-gut-health https://www.medicalmedium.com/blog/secrets-about-gut-health Hope this info gives you some help…hope! The MM has 7/8 books out now …check your library! Suggest reading his first book …The Medical Medium(has X-ray of lungs on cover!!).

        @Trainwreck And many say he’s a scam…but if so…has been a great scam that has people healing chronic illness …so grateful to have their lives back again!!! Try celeryjuiceheals on Instagram or join the Medical Medium in Facebook! He’s on other social media platforms! I’m not paid to endorse him…just going by my improved health since using his protocols! Totally sad how our medical system had failed us…created a sick world that only benefits pharmaceuticals and others behind this corrupt system! Drugs have their place…just. NOT.. ONE AND ONLY!! The system has no interest in the God given immune system or giving answers to why chronic illness has increased over 50% in past 50 years…even with Fauci heading infectious and chronic disease for past 50! What was his purpose??! Uncalled for! Check out Children’s Health Defense for some great info, too! Hope you find the MM info helpful!!!

      I have had IBS since I was a teenager, 48 yrs. I don't have celiac, but I do have gluten sensitivity. I knew that whole wheat bread or triscits or rye bread would give me instant runs. Yes. IBS is notorious for bad periods and ok times. I figured out over the years that I was sensitive to gluten and certain waters. Also cayenne peppers. I have to limit tomatoes too, especially fresh ones. My functional medicine Dr showed me that dairy effects my joint pain. ( I also have RA & fibromyalgia).

      Try the Nerva app. It definitely helped me relax my mind and helped my symptoms. Also try and find out what foods trigger flare ups and avoid. Excercise and stress management

      I have IBS and I def go through periods where I have symptoms and others where I have none. I attribute a lot of it to stress and what’s going on in my life at the time. The brain-gut connection is crazy

        @elliealikehealth agreed

      If it's celiac, cutting out gluten can be a real game changer. My mother in law has a celiac sensitivity and didn't know it til her mid 50s. Going gluten-free took care of all her stomach issues. It's not a fix for IBS but it can help there, too

      So the big problem I found out is that there are regular GI and motility GI. It’s the motility GI who actually look at IBS, IBD, gastroparesis, etc. The regular GI don’t know anything beyond cancer and not cancer essentially. IBS can come and go in waves for some folks, others not, it’s really interesting like that. I was originally diagnosed with IBS C, then IBS M, and now gastroparesis that also presents as IBS M. So definitely keep digging, do all the testing. Diet is huge, even if you’re on meds you have to be careful about diet because that’ll set you off

        @100Percent_K interesting. I’ve always had the symptoms of motility and inflammation coupled with adhesions, stress and diet. All things pop up with no consistency except for that it is every day! Yes I tried all the meds. Best thing for me is to avoid the “C” with a daily laxative and wait till the morning passes. There are a lot of witch doctors out there. Keep trying. I’m at it for 30 years!

      Yep. This is my life’s story and I stopped going to western med doctors because it’s not a black and white issue. What honestly helped me the most was cutting out gluten completely because even if you don’t have celiacs it’s an inflammatory. I also limit dairy heavily, and try and reduce sugar as much as you can along with processed foods. Research the Paleo diet - you will learn all about inflammation and food toxins. I basically do paleo but I didn’t eliminate rice, potatoes, beans etc. But it opens ur eyes to good and bad oils, soy, what is tough on the system foods, etc. Another good idea is to go and see a holistic dietician.

      I have IBS but not celiac. The medication i take for ibs seems to work for the most part but there are days where it feels like it doesn't work at all
