I’ve been posting under Crohns Disease for awhile now but my new doctor said it sounds way more like IBS and i agree How do i prevent or help flare ups ive tracked my food and theres never anything out of the ordinary that I’ve found causes flareups My worst symptoms are diarrhea, nausea, and hot/cold flashes

      Best way to prevent flare ups is to find out what is causing them. I like a natural root cause approach- get to the bottom of the issue. Food sensitivities are a symptom of the issue- usually the issue is gut imbalances, overgrowth or undergrowth of microbes.

        @Smileys yeah but when one food can cause a flare up one day but then not cause one next time you eat it its kinda hard to do that ;-;

          @kxda some foods really don't agree with some ppl, and it is hard to determine. But think of it like this, if the food bothers you one day and not the next, is it really the food? To make it more confusing, it could be that some foods in combination don't work for you. For example, maybe cacao and banana are okay separately, but with spinach in a smoothie, it's too much. I had diarrhea for 7 months straight until I did a stool test and found out I had Blastocystis parasite. I treated with herbs and did have diarrhea anymore. Parasite infection is very common, and ones like blasto are microscopic so you can't see them, and they cause all sorts of body symptoms. Some think it's crazy some think it's fascinating. I've experienced parasites to be true

Some suggestions to help manage IBS flare-ups include following a low FODMAP diet, staying hydrated, getting plenty of sleep, and managing stress. Avoiding certain foods such as spicy, fatty or greasy, fried, acidic, or sugary foods may also be beneficial. It's also recommended to keep warm, especially around the stomach area. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
