The Whole-food Guide to Overcoming Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Strategies & Recipes for Eating Well With IBS, Indigestion & Other Digestive DisordersBook - 2010
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common intestinal disorder that causes diarrhea, constipation, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Medication can ease these symptoms, but to target the root of the problem for lasting relief, IBS sufferers need to improve digestion by changing their diet. In The Whole-Food Guide to Overcoming Irritable Bowel Syndrome, nutrition consultant and former IBS sufferer Laura Knoff presents a complete program for healing IBS and related symptoms with food. By keeping a food diary and taking self-assessment quizzes, readers learn which foods help and hurt their digestive health. The book then shows readers how to develop a customized plan for healing their IBS using this information. Knoff directs readers to common beneficial foods for digestion and warns about foods that can exacerbate digestive problems. This final section of this book offers simple recipes readers can begin using right away to heal their digestive issues and help them get started on the path toward better health. The book also includes guidance for eating out and information on the roles relaxation and exercise play in facilitating proper digestion.
