"I was diagnosed with IBS 19 years ago and have had no support from any healthcare professional in this time...they just didn't want to know. This course has taught me a lot about my condition (which is both C and D at times) and has given me pointers which have improved my life! I would recommend it to anyone who has IBS...even if you think you know most things about it (as I did)...you will get something out of it!" Emma (Sept 20)
A whopping 20% of Brits are thought to live with some form of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Despite these huge numbers, we still don't really know what causes it. However, a lot of people swear by low-FODMAP eating and identifying certain edible and stress-related triggers.
