Yeah I find peppermint hard on the tummy. Ginger is great though. It's used naturally to calm nausea and morning sickness in pregnant women. I boil up some water and cut up some ginger root and through it into the water. You can also add lemon and manuka honey if you can tolerate them. If you look up FODMAP diet, that's widely used for IBS treatment. I find dairy is a problem for me and possibly eggs. But I'm vegan for personal reasons so I'm working with different foods than a normal diet. I know rice and white fish are good for settling the tummy. I have suffered with anxiety and depression for years and was on meds for 5 years. Came off them about 3 months ago and everything is going good. Definitely stress management helps. I love yoga and meditation, but if you don't like that, I find running good and I've also done pole fitness which is great craic and great for body confidence. Xx

I always had IBS D since age 20. Now at age 50 I'm leaning more towards IBS C. Any suggestions. Never dealt with constipation before.
