IBS is an umbrella term that is used for a myriad of symptoms associated with your digestion/bowel movements. Basically it will seriously fuck with your shitting patterns.
About 3 years ago I started noticing that every morning I would have to take a shit about 20-30 minutes after I woke up. 20 minutes after I went, I would have to go again. I thought it was nothing but fast forward 3 years and I'm basically going like 4 times before I leave for work. The strange thing in my case is that I only really every have the symptoms of IBS in my mornings.
I've scoured the internet for other peoples experiences and I can't really find anyone who is mainly effected in the morning. For some people it's all day and they are shitting 8-10 times a day and it controls their life. For me it's controlling the start of my day, every day.
I know you are probably thinking that I just have a bug, or maybe "You just shit in the morning bro". But after having this for sometime now, I'm sure it's not just that. I remember taking normal shits. Once or twice a day, and if I had to go, I could always hold it. Never an urgent need to "Go right fucking now" like I feel now. I let out my dog, I feel an urgent need to run to the bathroom. I run to the office to pay my rent, I feel the urge. I drive to work, I have to literally stop and find the nearest restroom to unleash my bowels. It's a "I might shit my pants if I don't find a restroom soon" feeling.
Perhaps it started from drinking Red Bull every day. Maybe it was because I used to smoke. I have no idea, but I have a feeling that someone here can offer me advice that can actually work. Here are some things I tried to find a solution to no avail:
- Juice Fast
- Cutting all Dairy
- Quitting Smoking
- Quitting alcohol
- All kinds of Vitamins
- Cutting all Artificial Sweeteners
I could go on but I think you get the point. I'm desperate and am willing to try anything. It's only half my day, but starting every day thinking I need to be around a restroom at all costs is keeping me in the house instead of going out and pursuing my goals. I have an offer for all the Losers on here:
If someone can help me get "cured" of this nonsense, I will ship them 100$ of Happy Hippo Kratom of their choosing. I am a man of my word. I want this gone, and I'm willing to help someone out who can tell me what to do or take to get rid of this shit.
This is extremely embarrassing. I don't want to be known as "that guy who shits his brains out every day." But this is not a joke. If I can get better the reward is there for anyone who can help.
P.S: I'm currently taking about 12 Grams of L-Glutamine a day along with Acidophilus (Probiotic) and one bottle of GT's Kombucha
. I've only been doing this for about 6 days with mixed results
Personal experience: Mild form of IBS, eczema + asthma , shitty digestive system all my life
NOT medical advice, just what i did, talk with your doctor b4 doing any of these
Basically it boils down to Gut dysbiosis (Poor balancing of your probiotics within your digestive system) + inflammation + lifestyle factors that trigger a lot of "toxins" in your life.
The reason i quote toxins is because there're a lot of various stuff considered toxins, and i don't know that much about that topic. (i know more than the average person to not get in shit though) All i do for it is avoid common knowledge stuff.
More on that in the end.
That's step A. Avoid all chemicals and toxins possible.
Step B. Take on a diet specifically targeted at Gut dysbiosis
You're doing really well on the idea of probiotics etc.
However, probiotics according to my experience..simply doesn't work as good as self-made fermented food.
For example: kimchi (korean fermented cabbage) or homemade saurrakraut (god knows how to spell it) have helped me a bit in the digestion department. They're real good if you get them from either reliable source (so they're not added stuff..no preservatives..that shit kills all the bacteria) or you made ithem yourself
Don't buy stuff from the supermarket..i'd say anything you make yourself will have significantly higher results.
The idea here is ferment food you'd usually eat already. So ferment cabbage if you eat them already..Ferment fruits if you eat those already..Replacing some part of your diet calories with fermented food is pretty healthy start.
Step C. Cut out Gluten if you haven't already.
Whatever people say "oh not enough evidence showing that gluten will affect you"
I've been reading on Perfect health diet by Paul Jaminet and he said something interesting
People who can tolerate wheat and gluten, just isn't sensitive enough. They still develop problems, or eventually become sensitive to gluten.
Just cut it out. Put Soy and other stuff along the way too.
leaky gut is a real thing, look into it
Dairy is optional, trial and error buddy. Most dairy product in the market right now is garbage anyways.
Step D. Up your GOOD source saturated fat (specifically grass-fed animal/wild caught fish)
check this link out for why. Basically a leaky gut has a lot to do with IBS..I'd almost say they go hand in hand but I never looked into it
To me, all inflammatory, autoimmune disease has the same fix, just variations of focus.
A common reoccuring theme is: good quality saturated fat. The more you follow this chain of thought the more you'll realize how beneficial saturated fat may be in aid of many health problems.
Step E. Inbox me if you want more personal details of why i do certain things, but Following the links below you'll get a sense of where I'm from
A. Perfecthealthdiet.com by paul jaminent
Oh..forgot..Step F. Avoid toxins.
Toxins come in a lot of forms. Pesticides, heavy metal..flouride + chlorine in water and etc.
Basically it's really hard for you to get rid of these, but they definitely have a negative impact on your digestive system.
FInding out what you're the most sensitive about is probably half the battle. If you have allergies that you are not aware of can be a problem.
I got tested (normal skin test) and shown that Im allergic to preservatives. Yikes
So, your toxins might not be the same as me. Why i said toxins is because in this case some toxins are completely harmless to you (peanut allergy for example) but can be deadly to your friend. It's quite relative
The rest, are just common knowledge of avoiding synthetic chemical.
And yes, avoid synthetic drugs in the meantime, even kratom if you want it to be fixed asap.
I concur with pogybendover. What does your diet consist of? I have a friend who had Celiac - before celiac was a big deal. Doctor's told him he had to have his colon removed and wear a fucking colostomy bag the rest of his life. He's a smart fucker, so he researched, cut out gluten and now he's totally cured. Fucking allopathic medicine is horrible for chronic illnesses. Can you imagine if he didn't try to cure it with diet, he'd be walking around with a colostomy bag. Jesus.
Check out Keto, Primal, Paleo diets if you haven't yet.
I did Keto for just over 30 days, now I'm switching to Primal because my system doesn't like all that dairy.
Not saying that's your situation, but overall diet can have a lot to do with it, and I didn't see you mention what you eat on a day-to-day basis. As you know if you suspected drinking all that chemical-ed crap affected you. Could be dairy, could be gluten which can be really inflammatory to the system, but maybe it's something else.
We live in the matrix. A thought-generated one. See it, be free of it.
I find gut health fascinating. I don't have ibs or any major gut issues that I'm aware of, but there's lots of guys who do, and there is so much bullshit info out there that crowds out the importance of keeping your gut healthy.
Took me a while to find, but I finally got a hold of some Braggs ACV. I also grabbed some digestive enzymes. When I used the ACV for a couple days I took it in with some organic honey mixed in and some water. I felt the energy benefits but overall there weren't a lot of changes
Adjusted my diet to low FODMAP foods and eliminated all things processed. This was more of a hit and miss. One day I would feel better, but the symptoms were still there. Then the next day would be chaos and back to square one
I'm not going to pretend like I had an amazing diet because I didn't. I had changed my diet before but would just end up getting frustrated because after weeks of being strict about what I ate, I would still be shitting multiple times a day with stomach cramps and the like
Overall this is weird timing. I make a post when I'm hopeless and also when I started to try another "cure" I've read about online to heal my gut. I didn't think I'd actually change anything but what I'm doing is making me regular. It's almost too good to be true. For the past few days, I've taken 1 shit in the morning and then the rest of the day is fine. I actually feel normal. Today I woke up, dropped a deuce, and went about my day running errands and such. This never happens
I'm usually paranoid about leaving the house hours after I wake up because I'm seriously worried I won't be able to find a bathroom and I'll fucking shit myself.
But here is what I'm doing that is ACTUALLY working for me:
- 30 Grams of L-Glutamine daily
I bought a pound of powdered mix on Amazon and mix 15 Grams with water and some flavoring in the morning. I don't pound it, but just drink it when I'm thirsty like anything else. Then mix the same thing when I get home and finish it before I hit the sack.
- 10 Billion Probiotics
I also grabbed some probiotic "pearls" on Amazon. The idea is that they dissolve through the whole intestine so they can populate everything instead of just get used up in the stomach. I don't know if this is hippy nonsense, this is just what I grabbed though. So I take 2 pearls in the morning with my Glutamine drink
- A Generic Allergy Pill
One of these guys before bed. I'm not actually sure if this is doing anything. But whatever I'm doing is working, so I'm still taking it. I'll stop taking it for a couple nights to see if there are any changes, but for now I'm gonna continue taking it
I can't express in words how life changing this is for me. Maybe it's a flop, and the symptoms will come back. But it's been over a week now and I'm getting better every day. I can actually start the AA program, and really start contributing to GLL instead of lurk, and hang out in the Kratom Forum
TubZy, Pogybendover, and TheGTB. I still want to give you guys something for taking the time to try and help. If any of you are interested, send me a PM and I'm thinking I can send you an ounce of HH Kratom. I figure I can just send the money through PopMoney to HH, then they can send it to you

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
