I am not shy when it comes to talking about bowel movements. It’s safe to say I overshare.
When you are living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), you get used to talking about poop. If you have IBS and gut issues like I do, you are probably used to it too. Talking to your doctor about irregularity, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, probiotics and diet, is not a rare event. You’ve probably seen numbers of medical practitioners trying to figure out what works for you. Maybe you have tried all of the suggested solutions like eliminating food, working out more (or less), drinking more water, taking fiber pills or psyllium powder… you’ve been there and back.
IBS sufferers – I am with you!
Not knowing why your digestive system is out of wack is frustrating. Having the doctor not know how to solve your problem and just assign the “IBS” diagnosis can feel defeating. It is a very broad diagnosis, with no solution. Plus, IBS has so many different forms! All of our bodies handle it differently.
There is not a single cure that works for everyone. However, I have two tips for to help with IBS. These solutions can help the majority of people that suffer from IBS.
From my experience and from consulting with others, I know two things to be true: If you have digestive issues, you need to be on a good probiotic! If you have digestive issues, give Low FODMAPS diet plan a worthy shot!
How to Solve Digestive Issues:
A Good Probiotic
Low FODMAPS Diet
How to Choose a Probiotic:
Not all probiotics are created equal. You want something that is strong enough for your seriously messed up gut bacteria. Consult a professional and ask friends that “swear by” their probiotic what they recommend. One professional I trust is the knowledgeable Suzy Cohen, RPh. She recommends Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics in her book Drug Muggers. (The book is fascinating and worth a read!)
Choose a probiotic like Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics if you suffer from gut issues.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics
If you struggle with digestive issues and/or have IBS, Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics is an ideal formula for re-populating good gut flora. They are a unique form of probiotic because they are based on traditional Asian fermentation processes. The powerful probiotic blend can work past your stomach acid and get into your intestines, where you need it most!

The power of probiotics is incredible, but getting the best probiotic (not just any ol’ probiotic) is key.
What is Low FODMAPS:
Low FODMAPS diet has incredible results with IBS sufferers (statistics show over 70% say it works for solving their IBS symptoms). FODMAPs stands for: Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. FODMAPS are found in the food that we eat daily.
I have seen the reduced symptoms in my own life (constipation, discomfort, nausea, gas) by following a Low FODMAPS diet. The basic elements of the FODMAPS diet is no garlic, onion, gluten, dairy, and some other highly fermentable foods. Foods that ferment in your stomach can cause IBS issues, so this diet avoids those.
The great news about this diet is that it isn’t forever. It is for a few months and then you slowly add back foods on the High FODMAPS list to see which foods you can tolerate and which foods you can’t. If you suffer from IBS it is worth a try!
If you have been reading a million article a week and are overwhelmed with the information out there. STOP. Give these two simple solutions a try! You must try them for at least a month to see if they work. They are so worth the (little) trouble that they take.
I feel your gut pain, believe me – and these two simple steps solve digestive issues more than anything else I’ve tried. Good luck!
