What Is Your Favorite Herbal Tea for IBS

Fennel and chamomile are my best choices. I have a cup fennel tea in the morning with my cereal and a cup of chamomile at night, they really help.

Rice Tea

My daughter introduced me to rice tea, and it has made such a difference for me when I am having tummy troubles. It has a pleasingly bland flavour (think plain rice), and can be found in Chinatown. It really does work to calm tummy woes!

chamomile tea

Everyday I have a cup of chamomile tea and it has reduced my cramping which has reduced the diarrhea.

Blackberry Tea

I have read that blackberry tea is good for diarrhea. When my IBS is at my worst, the one thing I can actually think about putting into my body is blackberry tea.

Peppermint Tea

Ever since I read "Eating for IBS" by Heather Von Vorous, I never go anywhere without a large mug of peppermint tea. My co-workers call me the "peppermint girl", but I am glad I am not spending as much money at Starbucks as the rest of them.
