A story of hope for any of you with chronic IBS

I had IBS for over 25 years – and I beat it.
I had a huge list of symptoms as my IBS got worse and worse over time. I ended up bloating up 2 dress sizes EVERY DAY.
I now have energy and no longer obsess over food and bathrooms.
I did not do this with pills and potions. I made the conscious choice to listen to my body and heal.
My biggest piece of advice is to stay open. I didn’t know it was possible to recover for sure. You do now. I found my way piece by piece and kept at it day after day. I got there. You can too.
I have made a blog to help other IBS sufferers like you find their way out of IBS. You may find the keys to your IBS on it.
