Your IBS symptoms aren’t normal… but they’re common | #AskADietitian Facebook Live

 In #AskADietitian Videos, Feature, Gut Health & IBS

The week before Christmas I talk about: Your IBS Symptoms aren’t normal, but they’re common. What I mean by that is they DON’T have to be something you just live with. They aren’t something made up. They aren’t a diagnosis of exclusion. And they aren’t a catch-all phrase.

By assuming this – we disempower people who are struggling with IBS. I hear the words hopeless, helpless, frustrated, and unheard. I heard people feeling like they’re not taken seriously.

Ultimately, we need to SHIFT and CHANGE the messaging around this! My post ‘Is it Irritable Bowel Syndrome’ goes into detail about getting the correct diagnosis and treatment.

Watch what I have to say this week about standing up for IBS diagnoses and getting access to proper treatment!

If you’re tired of living with your IBS symptoms – and tired of trying literally everything to get them under control – you should consider seeing a dietitian that specializes in gut health! Ignite offers in person and online counselling for those with IBS and gut health issues. What makes us different is how we approach IBS care – find out more on our IBS information page!
