Having spent all of last night with stomach cramps, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I woke up at 4:15 am with the same cramps, still clutching on to the hot water bottle that I had gone to bed with.
The offending food seemed to be carrot and coriander soup, which I have had many times before and although carrot is high in fibre, it’s not normally classed as an offending food.
It’s recommended we take an Acidophilus and Enzyme Digest preparation before meals. There is also an IBS herbal tincture remedy called Yarrow which is very effective.
In my own case, there is definitely a correlation between Cerebral Palsy and IBS. Being born 6 weeks premature, having Cerebral Palsy and chronic constipation, when I was a child, I am sure has led me down this path.
It’s up to us to work through the offending foods that bring on our symptoms, but we must be more vigilant and cut down stress too. Because stress always plays its part.
