Hi All..

Some of you know of my up and down battles with IBS.  The latest one came after our tour in Europe and it was bad.  It just wracked my entire body with pain before and after any bowel movement for at least an hour.   I had come back home from a month of eating avoids and started with the soy milk in my tea again and the Chlorella tabs and my beloved mango in my shakes.  I also started eating avocados everyday since I was eating them in Europe and they didn't seem to affect me.   I also continued on with heavy cream since I was drinking it in my coffee in Europe and it didn't seem to bother me.  

After about a week at home, the IBS kicked in like worse than ever.  So I dropped the Chlorella tabs, the soy milk, the mango and the dairy.   But I kept on eating Avocado.  The IBS was still lingering so I cut out the avocado.  It's been gone out of my diet for about 2 weeks.  

So the IBS slowly started subsiding and now I'm free of it again and the bowel  movements are lovelier than ever!     Sorry!  But only an IBS sufferer comes to appreciate healthy well formed bowl movements that don't hurt!    

I also have been on Deflect for about 2-1/2 months.  I'm about to run out and I'm wondering if you all have had good success with it keeping your tummy's in good shape on a continuous basis and what has happened when you have stopped taking it for a time?   We are in financial straits right now, soon to have jobs, but I am wondering if I should just go deeper in debt and buy some more Deflect as it may have been a huge contributor to the IBS healing up.  

Thoughts on all this?

Hi BluesSinger!
So sorry you had such a difficult time but glad you are better!
I had digestive problems when I ate red meat...as soon as I quit... ...soooooo wonderful!
Havent eaten "hooves" since 1995     Fins and feathers suit me just fine!
I take Deflect on a "need to" basis. Not daily. It works perfectly for me this way and is less costly.
If I indulge in ice cream... ....which is maybe 4 times a year...I will take one Deflect either before or after and
head off that awful gut ache.
If I have eaten too much food, I will take one Deflect and it does the job.
I do not see the need to take 2 caps twice a day.  
My DH is an O hunter and he does the same as I do with his O Deflect.  It works exactly like he wants it to.

Hi,i also solved my gut problems without taking deflect in a permanent base.Just don't start eating the foods you see they bother you,i prefer been 100% on the diet and when I really want to eat a meal I love,eat it and enjoy it,rarely,not in weekly base.For creme in your coffee,remember what we wrote about European dairy,propably is different than USA,also,when you were in Europe propably you were breathing cleaner air,the countries you were maybe had different magnetic field from the place you live,you were in a state of joy and exploration,conditions that I know make  food affects me in a different way.

Best coffee I know is Italian espresso lavazza,the golden pack makes nice cream you don't need any creme,i've used to drink my cup black without sweetener.Nespresso  brand capsules is even better and has great variety.
My advice,don't get deeper in dept,there is plenty of food to make lovely meals,most of the times what we really need is not the things we can't buy.

Bluesinger, I am right there with you. I totally relate to the BM problem. It is a miracle every time I go. Severe IBS with  constipation. I eat mainly vegetarian diet and still no go. My problem is proteins. Animal or plant protein I have to take a digestive enzyme. I first discovered dairy to be my problem which I cut out and then I notice when I ate meat it felt like a rock in my stomach. Since A's are low in stomach acid I just struggle eating protein foods. When taking  a digestive enzyme it does help the process of breaking down the food for better digestion but I have to be careful not to over do it.

As  I research my health problem I am starting to feel like I have a thyroid problem. I looked at the symptoms for hypothyroidism and I have all the symptoms even though my blood work comes back normal. It has to be a thyroid or a hormone problem. When I went thru menopause I was sick as a dog and lost 20lbs b/c I could not eat. I felt like my entire body was not functionally properly. That turned out to be low vit d which I started taking and has helped so much.

I have spent so much time researching and money trying this and that and it seems to work for a while and then slows down. If you find something that works stick with it b/c with IBS... traveling, eating out, or anything out of the norm can throw you in to tailspin for several days. It's a life style you learn to live with and say no to a lot of food.

Vitamin d is the only supplement I take an dit really really helps. I was very low in d a few years ago when I was very ill and I can tell the difference.

I agree with A HealthNut. Supplements seem to work for a while but then stopmor backfire. Too much money spent over the years. Now I just fine tuned my diet. For ME,  as an O , too many veggies or too much fiber and not enough fat will slow things way down.

Possible it could be that our body becomes immune to the supplement. I find that some of my supplements I rotate or switch every other day. Just like exercise  we should mix up workouts to use different muscles b/c our muscles get use to the same routine.

HealthNut,
I agree with the switching.
I never eat the same meals 2 days in a row, and the only supps I take everyday are my basic vitamins and probiotics.
All other supps are taken as needed.
I walk almost daily but switch off yoga and dancing/weight lifting on different days.

I would stop taking it for a few days and see if you notice any ill effects. If you do, then I'd resume taking it and use a credit card to buy more. If you seem to do OK without it, then keep what's left in your current bottle to "have on hand at all times" and wait to replenish it when you can better afford it.

This supplement may well have been a huge factor in your healing. But that doesn't mean you need to KEEP taking it to maintain the benefits.

Once again, I agree with Ruthie. And sometimes 'taking time off' is a good thing!!!  More isn't always better.

Well this experiment will be starting in a few days as I'm about to run out!  

However my gut is still doing great and I read where Guar Gum really helps those with IBS.   I've been drinking the Ripple Unsweetened Pea Milk which has Guar Gum in it.  Since then... no pain, solid bowel movements.. and it's not that much Guar Gum.  the problem is that I think it's hurting my joints.  

So I've got some Three Trees Almond Milk on order so I can try and move away from the gums.   But darn.. that Guar Gum sure works for IBS!!!!

Maybe you should start the experiment ASAP, leaving the rest of the Deflect as spares in case you need them stat.  Well, that's what I'd do.

Does ghee soothe you at all?

When you use heavy cream, are you getting the very best with no additives?  My body knows the difference b/t Farmer's Cow brand heavy cream and, say, Hood or the store brand (as does my wallet).  I'm wondering, if you're hesitating to buy Deflect, might you also be acting stingy with your cream?  And I still say soy milk is bad for you.

Anyway, I hope you're okay!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Glad you've healed!
That gives you the respite to relax and study, see where you can prevent.

Here's a comprehensive program with many different possibilities. See if any part of this speaks to you.

I don't have this problem, but I do take omega 3s, and I remember reading that people with IBS are often prescribed them, too.  I see that they figure into Dr. Hyman's IBS program, as do probiotics, as well as some sort of elimination diet to determine culprits or restore bowel health. I have read that sugar is often the major villain, screwing up the bacterial balance?

Best of luck.
