I first experienced IBS symptoms in 1992, at the age of 21 and I lived with it for 15 years.
I tried everything to find a solution including visits to about 10 doctors (G.I. specialists, OB/GYN, Internal Med., allergist, kinesiologist and chiropractors).
I read several books on IBS and tried elimination diets. I was tested for gluten and dairy allergies and the tests came back negative. I tried at least 6 different prescription medications, every over-the-counter treatment available for digestive problems and also tried many “natural remedies” from the health food store.
It was frustrating and exhausting and some days were better than others but that was always unpredictable. IBS was draining me and making me feel awful. In January, 2007 I came across the IBS Treatment Center’s web site. I immediately made an appointment.
Because of the knowledge gained from being a patient there, I have felt better in the last 2 months than I have in 15 years! Going there is a must for IBS sufferers.
