Living with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a tremendous challenge, and understanding the disease is key to developing management strategies that will reduce discomfort. This book provides current information on the disorder's possible underlying causes as well as its symptoms, clinical features and effective treatments and therapies, including both complementary and non-drug therapies. The authors also recognize that, although there is no cure for IBS, there are many options to treat the symptoms. Specific dietary changes are imperative for those managing IBS, and this book provides a detailed nutritional plan, suggestions for implementing that plan and information on vitamin and mineral supplements. It also includes a list of foods that are known to aggravate IBS and a detailed list of food items that are regarded by experts as safe alternatives, also known as the Foodmap Diet. The book features more than 100 recipes (with accompanying nutritional analysis) that have been specially created to help manage IBS, including vegan and vegetarian selections.
