Well, if you have digestive problems, your doctor has likely diagnosed IBS since IBS tends to be a catch-all digestive syndrome. Irritable bowel Syndrome, (IBS) is the most common digestive complaint seen by gastroenterologists. So you’re not alone, and, there are natural ways to calm and heal IBS.

What can you do to naturally calm IBS down?

Scroll down now to the 9 minute interview below, and listen to expert registered dietician,

Cassandra Forsythe, (Connecticut’s Female Fitness and Nutrition Scientist PHD)

In the brief interview below, Dr. Cassandra tells us two natural, powerful  ways to calm IBS symptoms.

One way is to address a dietary element called FODMAPS, a common carbohydrate which stands for:

Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides and Polyols

No worries, FOODMAPS is a mouthful (no pun intended) and I promise, you won’t be tested later…

What are FODMAPS, and could they be making your IBS worse?

My expert interview guest, Cassandra Forsythe has a comprehensive

FODMAPS list for you to use.

This list shows you low and high FODMAPS food items that contain this kind of carbohydrate that you can use to experiment with adding or deleting problematic foods that could be making your IBS worse.

Cassandra Forsythe also has a super cool

FODMAPS app you can use to check individual food items.

Listen to this brief, but information packed interview so you can more fully understand:

  • What FODMAPS are
