Hi Mich

I suggest trying some LP299V tablets. Probiotic therapy using Lactobacillus plantarum 299v has demonstrated superiority to placebo in improving pain, regulating bowel habits, and decreasing flatulence. These are available from most pharmacies and does not require a prescription.

Find out what is causing it, then act accordingly. I went to a kinesiologist and the diagnosis was candida. Went off ALL sugars, yeasts, processed foods, and stress. All ok now.

Definitely cut out anything with wheat, flour etc. e.g. bread, specially white bread, cake and biscuits!!!!!
