Welcome to part three of this series on Irritable Bowel Syndrome.. In the last two posts I covered the new research showing the involvement of Vitamin D in our gut health and also some of the strategies you can put in place to minimise the symptoms. I also looked at the impact that chronic stress can have on our digestive system and our gut welfare.
The two previous posts can be read here at these links.
The six week programme.
The aim of this programme is to reduce the symptoms that you are currently experiencing and to repopulate your intestines with the healthy bacteria needed for your body to function.
You only know if something is working if you keep a record. So to start, you should write down all your symptoms and over the six weeks keep a journal. Keep track of symptoms coming or going and check the foods that you have eaten in the last 24 to 36 hours.
