Here's what you need to know-IBS is curable through diet. Just eliminate ALL starch and sugar from your diet- try it, I did, IT WORKS!!

I have Chrohn's too. Internal abdomen or back pain is common if there are ulcers or intestine narrowing there- see a doctor and do a colonoscopy and barium shake x-ray to find out your areas of infections.

I thought I had IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) then a friend showed my this video:

I then followed the steps on it, went to see my Doctor, and we worked out that I had a (mild)lactose intolerance. The symptoms are similar to IBS. This may help others?

I often see patientís referred to me with IBS symptoms. However, sometimes the symptoms are due to other conditions such as coeliac disease, lactose intolerance and inflammatory bowel disease. I would always advise having your symptoms checked, regardless of what they are or any preconceived ideas.

Caused by vaccines. New evidence shows a genetic link, and vaccines cause genetic damage.

IBS is often confused with with IBD. IBS is a nebulous, often vague range of symptoms for which no specific cause is often found. IBD on the other hand is an immune system disorder and often quite serious. For those who think they might be gluten intolerant (Celiac disease) this is now relatively easy to get tested for - you can buy them on the hight street (Boots, Superdrug et al) or online for example http://www.checkmybody.co.uk/gluten-inteloler... . Of all the conditions under discussion the latter is perhaps the easiest to identify and treat. All the best!

You have to understand something about IBS and Crohns, your body can heal itself on its own! You do not need drugs or medication. Yes, you do need to stop eating certain trigger foods, but it is also about cleansing your system so you can heal yourself. There is a free book that explains all of this here
