Benefiber Fiber Supplement twice a day in any drink…. @ jackiem95

Has anyone successfully worked with an Integrative Medicine specialist for multiple digestive issues including IBS and GERD? A friend referred me to someone who is a PhD in integrated medicine. I think some practicing in this specialty may also be MDs or DOs. Anyway, this partiuclar person is supposed to be very competent and has had success treating IBS patients.

Hello @jackiem95,

You may notice that I moved your message to this discussion about IBS as I thought it would be beneficial to bring more people into the conversation.

You’ve asked a very pertinent question – the need to address gaps in conventional treatment for IBS, GERD and a few other digestive issues is an important priority. Integrative medicine can help people with many conditions better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life by reducing fatigue, pain and anxiety. Here’s some information from Mayo Clinic:

Every morning upon awakening I have a dull stomachache, just an overall feeling of malaise. Usually around noon I start to feel better and continue with my regular activities. Could this just be anxiety? Anybody have this problem?

How can a person with IBSD have surgery on knee or hammer toes when I also have depression and anxiety disorder. I can't

How do others handle constipation? Usually I have diarrhea. Been taking IbGard.
