About Me
Living With IBS

I was diagnosed with IBS ten years ago, and in that time I've tried several prescription medications. I haven't found much relief from my symptoms using conventional treatments, so a few years ago I started exploring alternative therapies. I started this blog to document the drug-free treatments I've tried, such as reflexology, meditation and homeopathy, and share my personal experiences of exploring natural health care options with others who have IBS. I also post about the latest research on the management of IBS and publish guest posts from other bloggers with this condition who are seeking alternatives to drugs. I hope you find my blog interesting and informative.
