Thanks for writing in

Safety of medicines is documented by their long term use in clinical trials

But Panctocid [ Proton Pump Inhibitor] has been found safe for long term

As far as your symptoms are concerned I would suggest you manage your stress levels

Avoid Junk and fermented meals and add a Probiotic to your daily routine

This should help you in IBS

Hope this clears your doubts
Do write back in case of concern

Thanks for your followup query

I would suggest you avoid non veg food also, as 27 years in practise i have observed that non veg also causes collitis as it is not hygeinically prepared

Probiotics are freely available over the counter, yogurt is the best home made probiotic

They help you retain healthy bacteria

You may continue CIBIS but do take intervals when you are symptom free

For stress meditation is the best remedy

Hope this helps
Wishing you a healthy life ahead

XXXXXXX - Had been away for a workshop so could not reply immediately

Please reassure yourself - as this will cause a vicious cycle and will not allow the problem to resolve

You may continue Homeopathy if it helps

As people with chronic illnesses do talk of the benefits of homeopathy

Do write back even when u are in Germany if there is any need

Wishing you a speedy recovery
