Dear Ruby
I am really sorry to hear about your condition. I trust you are receiving medical treatment because your IBS has deteriorated to such an extent that I would strongly urge you to seek medical advice again. The dr will prescribe antispasmodic and anti-flatulence medication which really does work. I am also worried about your bleeding as this may indicate more than IBS, so go for that checkup ASAP.
I am not a herbalist so I cannot comment on herbal remedies. Research has, however, shown that the use of (good bugs) can assist with IBS because they normalise the microflora of your digestive tract . You can try Bifidoforte or Bifidoflora which can be purchased at most health shops. But first and foremost go and see your dr.
Holdings thumbs for you
