IBS & Diet: Easing Digestive Woes
Everyone has diet advice.

When you’re facing IBS, your helpful friends and family certainly have suggestions that may or may not be of use. Many people with IBS have already tried dieting to alleviate symptoms. Unfortunately, there is no one-diet-fits-all to help with IBS.

You try to eat healthy, but your body has problems digesting good foods. Your body simply isn't breaking down your food.

You can give your body some help in the digestive process. Try eating soup. Cut up your food into smaller pieces. Cook your food so it's a bit softer and easier to digest. Learn the foods that give you trouble.

Listen in as Dr. Stephen Wangen discusses diet and IBS.
