      What foods are best to calm an IBS flare up?

      I think that's what it is! I do have a bit of a sensitive gut but I've been feeling so rough for a week or two now, nausea and tiredness as well as the bowel probs.

      I thought if I kind of detox for a few days I can see if it is diet related or something to go to the GP for.

      Thanks

      I've had this for over a month now too, keeps coming and going and came back last night! OH has got it too, his comes and goes too. I wasn't sure whether it was IBS or whether it was a stubborn bug. Seeing as both OH and I have got it I figured it was a bit coincidental for us both to have IBS? Would be interested to see what could help, I have been avoiding spicy foods!

      Agree, peppermint tea.

      Avoid bread and pasta, then flares it up for me.

      peppermint tea and Colpermin capsules always help me when I have a flare up . I was diagnosed years ago after an Endoscope investigation among other things .The Consultant told me to stop eating certain foods to find out what the triggers were. Milk and dairy often made it worse but only when having a flare up .

      I'd also try some healthy bacteria stuff - either the yogurts or tablets.

      What foods did he tell you to stop eating Squirt?
      I know that wheat bread doesn't agree with me. Can't eat more than one slice a day without feeling an effect

      Think I might have to give peppermint tea a try!!!

      Re: What foods are best to calm an IBS flare up?

      i have crohns disease (the whole IBS thing is a sore point for me as i was wrongly diagnosed with it like many others, and by the time i was eventually diagnosed it was too late for me) I find that GP are too quick to diagnose IBS rather than investigate IBD (crohns, colitis etc)..

      I found with the nausea that ginger and peppermint tea helped..

      depending on whether you have constipation or the skits... you can change your diet to suit. I was constantly going to the loo... so with that i was on a low residue diet which consisted on mashed potato, plain chicken, white rice and soup... i stayed away from high fibre foods as this only aggrevated my stomach and bowels.
