Re: Does it go away?

Hi Lionphish,

I've managed to get rid of almost 99% of mine - and I have friends who have managed to rid themselves of it too. (Don't know how they did it). But for some people it have gone away, and for some others its gotten worse and yet others it gets better, but never goes away.

Its kind of strange and irritating that way.

Cheers, Raju.

How have you managed to get rid of 99% of your symptoms?

Re: Does it go away?

ibs is a general term for stomach problems that are not serious. Everybody gets ibs. Ask around and note of the many people who have had a colonoscopy done at one point of their lives. So yeah it can very well go away for good. Do not believe a GI doc who tells you it will never go away. Of all the ibs cases only a few will be due to serious uncurable disfunctional problem so chins up okay

Re: Does it go away?

Hi lionphish,

I'm a very special case I guess. I deal with IBS through self-taught visualisation techniques that makes IBS go away. I'm really not on the board because my IBS related troubles. I'm here because I suffer from allergies (eczema) which is caused by the same trouble that causes IBS (at least in my opinion). I'm always here to find out if someone has come up with a method to deal with IBS that I can use to reduce my eczema even further - I've got it down from severe eczema to mild right now - Still I have the occasional bursts of allergies and I can still use some tips on getting it completely gone.

If I continue at the rate that I'm going -I'll probably be rid of my eczema in a couple of months.

I guess so far my search has been fruitless. Sigh, oh well.

Cheers, Raju.
