In brief: No cure

There is no cure but many people learn to live with ibs to the point where symptoms and impact on life are minimal.

In brief: Depends

Eating healthy is only part of the solution, be sure you are drinking 80-100 oz of nonalcoholic, non caffeinated fluids daily, 20 oz extra for every 30 minutes of strenous activity, and 20 ounces more per hour of airplane travel.
And if your diet is high in fiber, do not take fiber supplements. Good luck.
