Why curd should not be eaten in IBS?
Can anyone explain the reason why should curd not be eaten in IBS according to Ayurveda? I am suffering from IBS-A and as far as I know, curd is good for digestion. Then why should it not be eaten in IBS? Can I drink buttermilk instead? Also could you please suggest me the diet for IBS-A? What should I avoid eating?

I m with Dr. Uppal.....Curd is heavy to digest and USNA (hot) by nature and batter milk is easy to digest and stambhak by nature....So very useful for IBS PT.
Next Steps
pt. should take  butter milk with add some roasted white jeera and little bit of salt.

curd is heavy to digest and when your digestion isn't good you should avoid it buttermilk as per ayurveda is the best for all your stomach related ailments. The buttermilk you take should have little butter in it, i mean it should not be completely toned nor should it be full of fat as far as your diet is concerned i mean to know yourmedical personality first, direct consultation required

You can take curd but it should be prepared from skimmed/ toned milk. Buttermilk is a better option as the fat content is almost zero. Use of Bilva (wood apple) pulp is highly effective

Dairy is problematic for two reasons for IBS patients.First it contains fat which can cause diarrhoea.You may need to switch to low fat or nonfat dairy products to lesson the symptoms. Second many people with IBS are Lactose intolerant,they may still eat yogurt.But might have to switch to alternatives like soy cheese or soy milk.Can take butter milk as it's low fat.
Next Steps
should talk to Ayurvedic Doctor for calcium supplement  if you decide to cut out dairy.
