I came across the following eBay ad (in Google’s AdWords format) as I scanned the listings for irritable Bowel syndrome.
I’m reproducing the content and layout.

This is from “Today’s Word:Demulcent” MyWordaDay, Friday 10/27/06. Direct quote.
Approximately 1750; from Latin, ‘demulcens,’ ‘demulcent-,’ present participle of ‘demulcere’: to soften, to soothe down (’de-’: de- + ‘mulcere’: to stroke, to soothe).
“When time becomes viscous, you can live forever. […]
Just this morning I came across an IBS site related to a specific drug that’s used by some, and prescribed by some doctors. I am not daying anything about the efficacy of the drug; I’m not a physician. Although I am a scientist, the site doesn’t have (much) scientific information.
What it *does* have is short, […]
This will probably wind up as a page, as well as a post.
There are two web resources, as far as I know, that provide some lists of snacks for IBS.
This list, at tummychow.com, approaches the category of “what to eat when you can’t eat anything!”
There is a somewhat longer list at the Heather Van Vorous […]
For a long time I’ve been contemplating a list of safe foods for IBS, foods that may be available in your local or nearby supermarket. I just found such a list, that is comprehensive, on Heather Van Vorous’s web site. The link is as follows:
Safe Foods List, By Country
I would caution you still to READ […]
Or at least, this just found on the web ;-)
A study of the use of probiotics with both IBS-C (IBS with constipation) and IBS-D (IBS with diarrhea). The study is summarized in a press release from the Annual Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology, the major medical association for Tummy Doctors (Gastroenterologists), the ones […]
The other caution about the Revival Soy site is this page, that might be the first page you see if you search on Revival Soy. The Revival Soy Bars aren’t suitable for many people with IBS because they have dairy and sweeteners that cause problems. The shakes offered, again, are not suitable for many people […]
While I haven’t been recommending all their products, I have written in favor of the Revival Soy Shakes. They come as a powder, in an envelope, and need to be added to 6 oz. of water, or 8 oz. of soy milk to form a shake. The nice thing about the Revival Shakes is that […]
Well, tonight I was almost out of the Stevita Delight Choclate Powder I mentioned in the last post. I do most of my ordering at the beginning of the month, and it takes many places five days (at best) to get an order to me.
But I did have on hand some Stevia, in the form […]
Life would not be complete without chocolate.
Discovering that I could not tolerate any dairy products meant, most of all, that almost anything with chocolate sold in an ordinary drugstore, convenience store, or grocery store was out of the question. The exceptions are chocolate soymilk and chocolate powder (not powder for making cocoa or chocolate milk).
Today I worked out a very fast breakfast—probably should have done it long ago, actually. This is especially for the instant-coffee, ice-cube-in-the-coffee, speed-it-up-at-all-costs, sort of person I still am.
This involves preparing the morning shake the night before and putting it in the refrigerator. For me the shake is made of soy milk, a Revival Soy […]
