Food Comes First
Know that when you change your diet, it is not simply eating one healthy meal in a day and the rest is a free-for-all. Eating 'clean' means to have all your meals composed of ingredients that are well taken by your body.
This change in your meal plan means that you also need to modify your snack type consumption and not just your primary meals. This truly presents your body with that window of opportunity to heal itself. If you randomly sneak in foods that you are not compatible with, it will just place that burden on your body and prevent your body from healing.
If you have symptoms after eating ice cream for example, whether it is an immediate reaction or a delayed response, you can put the whole body in jeopardy from healing. The reason is because the foods that you eat, are spread throughout your internal organs and the antibodies for the antigens naturally created continue to exists long after it has been consumed.
Foods that your body see as incompatible are called antigens and the chemical reaction that your body creates, is called the antibodies. Without going into too much technical details, know that the longer you can stay 'clean' from allergic foods, the better you'll be in the short-term and in the long-run.
The more longer opportunities of time you allow your body to be completely 'at rest' from intolerable foods, the more time the body will take to heal itself and bring it back to its natural state. A state that is not inflicted with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
When you change your meals, this forms a significant part of helping your body to heal. However, this change does not revert your condition 100%. It may revert the symptoms for many IBS sufferers by up to 75-80%. The other remaining 20-25% is left to you, with other treatments, to enable your body to heal.
The enabling process and treatments to aid your body to heal, often involves herbal supplements and other therapy treatments that will provide that helping hand for your body. As your body struggles, it presents you with symptoms, meaning that it needs your help. In those situations where no symptoms are present or just temporary symptoms are felt, often the body is able to heal itself without needing to provide alarming symptom signals to its host.
