Do you experience frequent abdominal discomfort, pain associated with digestion, and frequent trips to the bathroom? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

IBS (Irritabel Bowel Syndrome) is a category that many digestive distress conditions are thrown into–this includes changes in bowel movements, abdominal pain, and digestive distress. This is not a disease, yet pharmaceutical companies are capitalizing on the discomfort of the American people. After all, there are over 300 different medications for IBS. Yikes!

Interestingly enough, IBS is the #1 reason for worker absenteeism in the United States. It is estimated that 10-15% of the adult population experiences symptoms, and is the most common reason for presenting to one’s primary care physician. This is a huge topic of focus when I am presenting at companies and conventions for wellness in the workplace.

While I don’t feel that diagnosing yourself or labeling yourself as having IBS is necessary, what matters is what you are going to DO if you are experiencing these symptoms. I would like to share with you 5 ways you can easily soothe digestive distress and symptoms using real food and strategy holistically.

These tips will also help if you have Crohn’s Disease.
