This depends on your dooctr's definition of IBS. Some dooctr's call chronic constipation IBS. If you suffer from IBS, meaning chronic diarrhea or frequent, soft bowel movements, you may try the following. Many people with IBS are deficient in Vitamin D. A good Vitamin D3 supplement is essential. But not the D2. Get the D3. To help control chronic diarrhea, try L-Carnitine. Only take a low dose. But get a quality brand. In the vitamin business, you get what you pay for. Cheap means it's garbage. Get Solaray or Nature's Plus. If you have chronic constipation, be aware of what can cause it. Calcium will set your gizzard like concrete, and so will Iron supplements. Be cautious about mixing prescription drugs with herbs. Do your homework.My Credentials: I have a Doctorate Degree in Natural Health, I owned and operated a Health Food store for several years, and have been a natural health consultant for years.
