Digestion Tip of The Month: Living with IBS

An estimated 15-20% of all Americans have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS. Despite the fact that diet plays a direct role in gut function many doctors fail to give their patients any IBS dietary or food guidelines for Irritable Bowel Syndrome treatment at all.
