Probiotics for IBS

Hey guys,

If you aren't taking probiotics, you should talk to your doctor about getting on them for IBS. For me this was the single-most helpful treatment. My meds weren't working and my doctor just wanted to keep trying new prescriptions. I honestly wasn't big into just popping another pill, so I asked around and found an integrative medicine doctor who told me that probiotics could really help. Has anyone else found them to be helpful? Also check out Mytavin, it's a free online calculator where you type in your symptom and it shows what vitamin you may be lacking. I just typed in irritable bowel syndrome and it showed that I may need probiotics. It's a pretty cool tool.
