Eating for IBS Diet & Cookbook, by Heather Van Vorous

Eating for IBS      YOU ARE NOT ALONE! For twenty years I thought I was the only person in the world with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I wasn't, and neither are you.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (also known as spastic colon or IBS) is a devastating and incurable condition that afflicts up to 20% of the world's population, children as well as adults.

IBS is a physical, not psychological, disorder and it is directly affected by diet.

Eating for IBS provides the most accurate, explicit, and comprehensive dietary information available on the subject.

Contrary to what many believe, eating for IBS does not mean deprivation, never going to restaurants, boring food, or an unhealthily limited diet. It does mean learning to eat safely by realizing how different foods physically affect the GI tract, and how the same foods can help or hurt both diarrhea AND constipation, as well as bloating, gas (flatulence), nausea, and painful abdominal cramps. Eating for IBS means learning how foods can prevent or trigger a spastic colon. For example:

* There are two kinds of fiber...one soothes the colon but the other can cause severe IBS attacks for both constipation-predominant and diarrhea-predominant people

* Dairy is a common IBS trigger...even in people who are not lactose intolerant

* Peppermint, chamomile, fennel, and ginger can prevent attacks of pain, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and nausea better than some prescription drugs

* Bland foods are not automatically IBS safe foods

People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome desperately want to eat without fear, but until now they have had nowhere to turn to learn how. This book tells IBS sufferers exactly what they need to know to relieve diarrhea and/or constipation NOW, and how to maintain stability by preventing symptoms in the future. Eating for IBS is the first and only work written by an author with IBS, with the express goal of helping others who suffer from the same disorder. It offers sympathetic suggestions based on first-hand experience as well as nutritional research, comprehensive eating and cooking guidelines, travel and restaurant advice, supermarket ideas, and gourmet recipes - all tailored specifically to the needs of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In addition, the IBS dietary guidelines can aid diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain from bowel dysfunction related to Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis (Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, or IBD), diverticulosis, diverticulitis, enteritis, and fibromyalgia.
