Question Digestive Enzymes

I have been suffering with IBS for many years but at the time I didn't know what I had. I am sure that is what I have the present time I don't have any medical insurance, and I read this board just about everyday to see what suggestions I may find. I have the constipation, sometimes it last for 2 weeks before I can get any relief. I have taken laxatives occasionally but they make me so sick, with the cramps I often felt like I would passout. Then when I finally do get to go I have diarreha for days. Right now I havent been able to for awhile, and i too look like I am pregnant. It is embarassing, I have four kids already and to have to bring them places like that is miserable.
Anyway my question is that I have been reading about digestive enzymes, how does this help? Is their a certain kind to get? I should be able to find this at a health food store, right?
Any information anyone may be able to offer would be helpful, I will get some today if it helps...

Thanks in advance

Re: Digestive Enzymes

You can get those in pretty much any health food store. Just ask who ever is working there and they should be able to give you al the information necessary. I haven't taken any myself, but I am considering trying them for a while and see if it helps. Basically they just help and ensure that you digest your food properly.
