One in five people is affected by IBS and yet it is often dismissed by the medical profession as a condition they can do little to help with, plus there is a lot of confusing information out there. In this practical guide, women's health expert Marilyn Glenville cuts through the confusion with clarity and compassion, empowering the reader with information and practical ways forward. She looks at the whole body in relation to IBS, from how your digestive system is working to the role that emotions and stress can play. This brilliant book offers the vital support that anyone with IBS, or general digestive problems, needs to gently heal and strengthen their digestive system back to normal function. With advice on tests, diet (including a 7-day diet plan to soothe digestion), natural foods to consume as well as trigger foods to watch out for, this is a must-have for anyone suffering from IBS.
