Child, 18 year old, under weight and nutritional, height 5’10”, weight 42 kg.
He was suffering from IBS. Used to take leave 8 to 10 days in a month due to stomach pain. Used to go to toilet to empty stomach shortly after meals.
During this period I had seen the side effects of drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water. But I was still highly convinced that drinking this water 1 hour before meals could do the trick in every disease.
So I suggested the same to him. I gave him 1 glass of water 1 hour before meal. after 15 minutes another glass of water. One more after 15 minutes. next 1/2 hour nothing. Then he had normal daily meal.
Next day he was very happy. He said that there is no stomach pain. He did not go to toilet. I was too happy for him.
But after 3-4 days he said it is back to the same position.
That irritated me. I was sure by this time that it is water which is responsible. I asked him to stop taking any liquids for 48 hours. And he complied with that. No fluids for next 48 hours.
It has been more than 5 years now and there is no sign of IBS. I take regular feed backs from him.
After few days he told me that he used to get mouth ulcers round the year and there was complete relief from that as well.
After about 6 months he told me that he used to get leg pains as well. He told me that he has got complete relief from leg pains as well.
I read that Celiac disease and IBS have a lot in common. Large number of people who have IBS also have celiac disease. But I have not had an opportunity to try this for celiac disease so far.
