   With IBS is not so much what you take (apart from enough fiber), as
what you don't take.  Try changing your diet, eating only two foods
with each meal, and never the same food twice for a week.  Eventually,
like some IBS sufferers, you may identify some trigger foods.  Staying
away from these for good can improve your life a lot.
