Stomach Troubles Galore Anyone ever cure themself of IBS and GERD permanently

I am wondering if there's anyway to heal IBS and a noisy gut. I was diagnosed with IBS with constipation around the year 2000. I know there's a new dietary protocol to manage symptoms called Low Fodmap. I am obviously doing the vegan version of it. I at least have one bowel movement normally since I went vegan. What's the normal stool frequency for vegans without stomach problems? Should I just do a raw version of vegan Fodmaps and use potatoes and rice as a backup plan? Lentils, beans, watermelon, brocolli, and other high fodmap foods upset my stomach and an acceptable low fodmap food, oranges can cause problems too. I'm sick of being sick to my stomach. My father doesn't really understand that I'm actually sick and says that he'll kick me out if I don't get myself together and that stresses me out and makes things worse.

I used to have issues with ibs too and it took years of eating simple vegan meals, exercise, and destressing to get over it. I would get super bloated and feel sick after almost every meal and I had almost no appetite for food.  Eating simple fruit or starch mono meals or with a few compatible ingredients really helped my digestion.  During meals it's extremely important NOT to drink water.  Water dilutes your stomach acid and leads to indigestion.  Wait at least an hour after eating before drinking again.  Running and lifting on a daily basis also really helped stimulate my appetite and metabolism.  And imo most importantly, learning not to overthink or stress while eating and digesting actually lets your body do what it needs to do without your mind getting in the way and releasing adrenaline.

Another thing that help speed up the healing process was probiotics or water kefir.

It took me almost 2-3 years of doing these things until I was completely healed where I can basically get away with eating whatever I want without any issue.
