Understanding IBS on Breakfast Television

April is IBS awareness month! I went on breakfast television to discuss understanding IBS, specifically, debunking myths in IBS, and FODMAP's! Specifically the myths I commonly hear 'IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion' and 'just eat more fibre'.

April is IBS Awareness Month - and my MISSION is to remove the stigma around IBS. 13-20% of Canadians have IBS It is NOT a diagnosis of exclusion - rather - real symptoms to match a real diagnosis Many times clients come to me have been told 'IBS is all in your head'. The stigma breaks my heart that they're so afraid to talk about their disease! Time to diagnosis from symptom onset is GREATER than 6 years. 6 years with digestive issues. No answers. Feeling unheard. This is...
