Eating for IBS, by Heather Van Vorous
Diet plays a direct role in gut function, and the abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and bloating from bowel disorders can be directly controlled through diet. This is true not just for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but also for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis, plus diverticulosis and diverticulitis. The Eating for IBS diet can make the difference between living a normal, happy, outgoing life versus spending every day stuck in the bathroom enduring pain, bowel dysfunction, and misery.

Contrary to what many believe, eating for IBS and IBD does not mean deprivation, never going to restaurants, boring food, or a limited and therefore unhealthy diet. It does mean learning to eat safely by realizing how different foods physically affect the GI tract, and how foods can help or hurt both diarrhea AND constipation, as well as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and nausea. Foods can either prevent or trigger IBS or IBD symptoms.

For example:

* There are two kinds of fiber...one soothes the colon and regulates gut function but the other can cause severe attacks

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

* Peppermint, chamomile, and fennel can prevent pain, spasms, and bloating better than some drugs

* Bland foods are not automatically safe foods

In Eating for IBS, Heather Van Vorous, who has suffered from IBS for over 20 years and gradually learned to control her symptoms through dietary modifications, offers sympathetic information tailored specifically to the needs of IBS and IBD sufferers. She provides a comprehensive overview of IBS, explicit eating and cooking strategies, travel and restaurant advice, daily menus, supermarket ideas, and 175 delicious recipes. How delicious? Eating for IBS was a finalist for the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) Health and Special Diet Award - also known as the "Julia Child" award.

IBS and IBD sufferers will be thrilled to discover that they can enjoy traditional homestyle cooking, ethnic foods, rich desserts, snacks, and party foods - and don't have to cook unusual or special meals for themselves while their families follow a "normal" diet. Eating for IBS will forever revolutionize the way people with bowel dysfunction eat - and live.

* Take 1-3 times a day.

Heather's Tummy Fiber™ Acacia is a natural, pure, organic, soluble dietary fiber produced from the gum of the Acacia tree (also known as gum arabic). Acacia is a natural plant water-soluble fiber that has been harvested for millenia in Africa; its recorded dietary use dates back to the Egyptian pharaohs.

Soluble fiber supplements have a traditional and historical use for:

* Soothing and regulating the digestive tract
* Helping to prevent cramping by stabilizing intestinal contractions
* Promoting normal bowel function
* Alleviating BOTH diarrhea and constipation

Acacia soluble fiber supplement also:

* Increases good gut flora - it's considered a prebiotic, and significantly bifidogenic
* Has excellent gastrointestinal tolerance
* Slows down colonic fermentation (decreasing gas and bloating)
* Is completely safe and healthy for daily, lifelong use
* Is a traditional remedy for pregnancy/post-partum nausea & bowel dysfunction
* Is safe for use in children
* Has no gluten, sugar, salt, artificial sweeteners, citric acid, or yeast

How does soluble fiber work to prevent pain, constipation, AND diarrhea? The "soluble" in soluble fiber means that it dissolves in water (though it is not digested). This allows it to absorb excess liquid in the colon, preventing diarrhea by forming a thick gel and adding a great deal of bulk as it passes intact through the gut. This gel (as opposed to a watery liquid) also keeps the GI muscles stretched gently around a full colon, giving those muscles something to easily "grip" during peristaltic contractions, thus preventing the rapid transit time and explosive bowel movements of diarrhea as well.

By the same token, the full gel-filled colon (as opposed to a colon tightly clenched around dry, hard, impacted stools) provides the same "grip" during the muscle waves of constipation sufferers, allowing for an easier and faster transit time, and the passage of the thick wet gel also effectively relieves constipation by softening and pushing through impacted fecal matter. If you can mentally picture your colon as a tube that is squeezing through matter via regular waves of contractions, it's easy to see how a colon filled with soluble fiber gel is beneficial for both sides of the IBS coin.

As a glorious bonus, normalizing the contractions of the colon triggered by your gastrocolic reflex (from too fast or too slow speeds), prevents the violent and irregular spasms that result in the lower abdominal cramping pain that cripples so many IBS patients.

Clinical studies have also shown that Heather's Tummy Fiber™ has some special benefits, and advantages over other types of soluble fiber supplements. In the large intestine, Acacia stimulates the development of bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria, leading to the production of large amounts of short chain fatty acids which play numerous beneficial roles in the physiology of the human body. In addition, consumption of Heather's Tummy Fiber™ at dose levels lower than 15 grams/day caused none of the gastro-intestinal symptoms seen with other soluble fiber supplements (gas, bloating, cramps).

* This product is a medical food for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and is intended to be used under medical supervision.

Good kit
This is a good kit, and it helped me a lot. The First Year of IBS book is easy to read and enlightening. The Acacia powder has been very helpful for me. I don't need the cookbook since I am able to figure out what works for me on my own.

Tummy fiber is great
I was actually shocked that the tummy fiber works better than citracel. After my first dose my stomach stopped its daily rumbling and gurgling! I actually can eat almost anything when I use the tummy fiber! I will order more when needed.

Beautifully done, informative books.I've learned so much and love the receipes.
However, the Acacia Senegal fiber caused diahrrea. I am so disappointed that it didn't work for me, but am thankful that it helps many others. Is it returnable?
