Hi everyone.<br><br>
Thought this may be of interest to some people out there.<br><br>
I thought my eldest son had irritable bowel syndrome, and i was getting ready to go to the GP and get medication. Then by chance, whilst browsing on the net (as you do!) I came across this video:<br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V81uwYDa0Q" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V81uwYDa0Q</a> and after following the advice in it, we determined that it wasn't IBS but a problem with intolerance to lactose.<br><br>
The GP confirmed it, and we now have everything under control, using a non-lactose milk substitute.<br><br>
Hope this might help!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I have IBS, and it was a major factor in why I went vegan so long ago. Dairy is a major irritant, also be wary of spicy foods and how much oil/fat the sufferer ingests. Low fat, high fiber, dairy free, and non-spicy foods are usually pretty 'tummy-taming.' Also eating smaller meals through out the day makes it easier as well. Over-eating gives it way too much to work through. Good luck <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
