Intolerance to GARLIC?!?! (IBS)

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi, 

I've had IBS for almost a year now, and ive found that garlic really does NOT digest well with me.

I get pains, severe bloating, nasuea and constantly in the toilet number 2 (normal bowel movement) 

And to make it worse, I have health anxiety ? Im like a hypercondriac..I overact on the smallest things, which stress my stomach muscles out even more!!! 

HOW & WHY :-( anyone else ?? 

P.S im so nocturnal right now, these stomach gurgling and bubbling feelings are getting to me.

    I suffer from malabsorption too over last two years. I follow the low fodmap diet and don't eat wheat or dairy or onions or garlic or beans or I have wond pain, spasms, nausea and tummy ache. It's not an allergy or cealuacs but intollerance x all you can do it avoid it but onion and garlic notorious for malabsorption x

      How did you know you had malaborbtion ?? Did the dr's tell you? 

      Yeah, I find my mum cooking separate food for me always. Because I come from a European background all the food is rich in flavours and sauces so she makes it garlic and onion-less for me.. Until today my sister made chicken with garlic ... I'm honestly in hell right  now sad thankyou so much

    Hi aussiechick13, are you familiar with the low FODMAP diet. In Australia is very well known. Garlic is very high in oligos fructans, which are bad for IBS.

      IBS is an overgrowth of the wrong bacteria in the gut. The reason garlic or onions or similar things affect what is in your gut is because some of the bacteria grow more - feeding off of it. Then you can get too much of this one and that one and struggling to be in that space and fighting with each other., If your gut is sorted out - which is easily done by using the right biotics and prebiotics - then this does not happen. IBS is a conditionthat we bring onto ourselves by eating the wrong things or not eating the right things - and it can be put right. Thre is no need to have it for years and put up with it as if you are having no choice.

      You are saying something right, but I don't believe your general statement that we bring IBS onto ourselves is correct. There can be various reasons for an individual IBS and that is not always related to eating bad food.
