I was quite excited when I came across this site: Help for IBS.com. It was very interesting and very informative. Heather Van Vorous wrote a book called Eating for IBS and she has been an IBS sufferer herself. What was interesting about this site is that she said that all food is either a stomach irritant or not. Also fiber is either soluble on insoluble. It's the insoluble that gives IBS sufferers trouble. I know my doctor told my son that he needed to eat fiber like bran and etc. Well that is the insoluble kind and can aggravate IBS symptoms. She also said the order in which you eat food was very important. Insoluble fiber is necessary in the diet so an IBS person would need to eat the soluble fiber first and then can add some insoluble toward the end of the meal . That will reduce chances for stomach upset. I am definitely going to get her book and give it a try. Seems like people have had great success with her recipes. She says that 90% of symptoms can be controlled by this diet.
