Lonnie’s Answer

Ensure that you have a health balanced diet, and stay away from inflammatory food (starch, sugar, fried). Consume lots of greens (Kale, turnip, leafy green veggies, etc.). IBS is triggered by stress, so stay away from stressful situations. In order to manage or overcome your issue, you will need to make a lifetime commitment to your health. Hope this helps you on your health journey!

Heather’s Answer

Ask yourself what is the reason you want to be a truck driver? Do you want to see the country? Is it salary? Do you want to have freedom from being in an office? Perhaps this may not be the best career for you if you have a severe case of IBS. In this case, you may want to rethink this career choice.

If you have it mild, and know this is the career for you, I would recommend seeing a doctor that specializing in gastro-intestinal issues to understand what foods you are sensitive/allergic to. You can also do an elimination diet, as suggested by Dr. Hyman in a number of his books. It helped me to see that milk products were causing my migraines. This will help you to understand what is the root cause. Perhaps you are gluten intolerent or can't digest fats and need to take bile salts. You should start with this and try to correct your issue.

In addition you should begin on a good probiotic which will strengthen your intestinal tract, and ease your symptoms.
