IBS, Your Brain + Your Gut

IBS is the most common digestive disorder, affecting 1 in 5 adults—and 2 out of every 3 women. What causes it, and how can it best be managed?

On a personal note, let’s talk about bowels.

I was diagnosed with IBS before I had celiac. Stress is a huge contributing part to this. In times of terrible stress, my whole body is a mess, including my gut. But there are ways that I manage it – with anti-anxiety medication, relaxation techniques from a therapist, and eating properly  – which makes my gut feel better regardless of times of stress. I’m happy that IBS has come to the forefront of health issues, with that cute little intestinal tract on TV (even an ad on the superbowl – or the super bowel?) and more people considering their gut health.

Please remember that celiac disease can also be misdiagnosed as IBS. If you have other symptoms related to the ingestion of gluten, please get a celiac blood test while still eating gluten before removing it from your diet!
