Watch me explain my health journey. I decided to find the right nutrients and supplements for my body. It was a long journey that finally reduced my chronic pain, migraines, IBS and more.
IBS is an ongoing journey. It can be stable for a long time and suddenly impact your health for the rest of your life. I have learned to watch my diet closely and recognize foods that trigger my symptoms.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is known by baffling abdominal issues consisting of diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramps and bloating for no other known cause. Doctors usually run tons of tests without finding an actual cause for the issues. It can be caused by stress, anxiety, depression, diet and food allergies, etc. The solution is not clear for most individuals, it takes patience and time to figure out the right diet and stress management for you. My body was reacting to foods and triggering my IBS more frequently after I had children. My IBS was severe, resulting in a swollen belly that looked 6 months pregnant (with gas), indigestion, abdominal cramps, nausea and diarrhea. My gastric issues have been ongoing my entire life with constipation and reflux. The symptoms often required rest, heating pads, prescription Bentyl, activated charcoal and sleep to recover.
