Thanks very much.
I am very intrigued as to if this will work, and like you say, I will do some research into it myself.
I spoke to a pharmacist and she told me to have a test for coeliacs (sorry about the spelling if its wrong) or something like that. I think that was to do with a wheat or dairy intolerance. Perhaps I'll go and discuss it further with my doctor and see what she thinks.
I know that much of my IBS is triggered through stress, and at the moment I'm in the last year of my degree. But I so long to eat a variety of foods again! I'm catered halls and I'm getting bored of jacket potatoes for lunch!
