Recipes for IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Great Tasting Recipes and Tips Customized for your SymptomsBook - 2007
It is estimated that about five million people suffer from IBS worldwide. The primary treatment for IBS is lifestyle changes, not medication, so a cookbook for healthy living is essential. Paying special attention to what you eat may go a long way toward reducing symptoms and promoting healing. It is generally recommended that people diagnosed with IBS eat a low fiber, non-dairy diet. (Some people find their symptoms are made worse by milk, alcohol, hot spices, or fiber.) However, Recipes for IBS provides readers with recipes that extend beyond just bland foods, allowing them to eat a 'normal' diet, such as comfort foods like macaroni and cheese and shepherd's pie, baked goods like brownies and pumpkin pie, as well as other sweets like ice cream and smoothies. The book features full-color illustrations, patient testimonials, and offers recipes that will make eating easier, enabling people diagnosed with this disease to live a more active, enjoyable life.
