A Go-To-Guide for Women Living with IBS written by The Gut Experts
Consultant Gastroenterologist and Trinity College, Dublin, Clinical Professor of Gastroenterology, Professor Barbara Ryan and her colleague at The Gut Experts, Clinical Dietitian, Elaine McGowan, are the authors of the recently published What Every Woman Needs to Know About Her Gut (Sheldon Press).
It is the go-to-guide for women living with bloating, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other digestive problems who want step-by-step medical, dietary and lifestyle solutions.
Digestive problems, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, pain, wind.
Do you identify with these symptoms? Does your digestive system feel like your enemy? Is your unpredictable gut a source of embarrassment or fear, or is it holding you back?
If you’re a woman who’s answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, you’re not alone. Approximately 10% of the world’s adult population has symptoms of IBS, and 65-75% of those are women.* That means that approximately 1 in 6 women have IBS.
What Every Woman Needs to Know About Her Gut gives you:
- Clear, accessible information about and insight into what female hormones can do to gut health
- Stepped, manageable strategies to take control of your troublesome gut
- A diet plan that focuses on your specific requirements, which is flexible, achievable and sustainable
- Easy-to-follow recipes that are gut-friendly, delicious and restore your digestive health
Commenting on the publication of the book Professor Ryan said, “We believe that all women can benefit from our book as a woman’s hormones have a profound effect on her gut. Whether you are in your child bearing years, peri menopausal, or have been through the menopause, you will find empowering information, expert unbiased evidence-based advice and practical solutions in this book that will help you to reduce uncomfortable gut symptoms like bloating, constipation or wind and manage your IBS.”
What Every Woman Needs to Know About Her Gut also introduces The FLAT Gut Diet, a holistic diet and lifestyle plan developed by The Gut Experts that provides significant relief from IBS, bloating and other uncomfortable digestive symptoms.
McGowan said, “We are excited to introduce The FLAT GUT Diet Plan, an evidence-based diet and lifestyle plan for total gut-brain wellbeing. The plan provides significant and lasting relief from IBS, bloating and uncomfortable digestive symptoms and it has been transformative for our patients.
“Many women with gut conditions are following highly restrictive diets in a bid to manage their gut symptoms but this doesn’t need to be the case. The FLAT GUT Diet Plan allows you to enjoy a diverse diet whilst maintaining a healthy, happy gut.”
