: Hi All,

: I have just been diagnosed with IBS as all other tests were negative. I have followed Harry's advice on Fiber, but I am still having to go to the restroom sometimes 4-6 times a day, and I am still getting gas and dia... I have found a product on the internet by browsing, and ordered it, but so far it hasn't been much help. It is a natural incredient found in the sap of an Amazon tree called the Croten Lechleri. The patented formula is called "Normal Stool Formula" with the patented ingredient SPS-03. My question is: Has anyone else ever tried this pill before, and if so, has it worked for you. How much of them have you been taking daily. Has taking fiber been making the SPS-03 pills not work? I asked that last question because I noticed that when I stopped the fiber for 2 days and continued with the SPS-03 pills, the dia... stopped, and I got sort of constipated...and that is very rare for me to be constipated. I mainly have dia... or once in a lucky while I am normal. Stress seems to make things worse, but that is one of the characteristics of IBS anyway. Also, I am wondering about the safety of taking the SPS-03 over a long term period. It is manufactured by Shaman Botannicals (spelling?).

: Thanks,
: Roger.

: PS. Question for Harry: How long should I notice no diarrhea when just on the fiber alone? I have been taking it for about a month now and I still have ups and downs of diarrhea and normal, then diarrhea again.

Hi Roger,
I have never heard of SPS-03.
If you are having on and off again diarrhea taking psyllium after several weeks. There is something going on like Trigger foods that you need to determine and eliminate or Stress. Since you can't get away from Stress in this LIFE ,then you have to find a way to deal with it and there are many pretty good books on Stress Management and make sure you take the right vits&minerals that are being depleted with watery diarrhea. Lack of some nutrients can cause stress and anxity. IBS'ers have enough anxiety and stress without having to deal with Nutritional problems.
God Bless---Harry
