On today’s podcast, we’re talking about one of the most common problems to affect the gut – and what we can do about it to make IBS less irritating… as a lifelong sufferer, Dirty Diet and 5:2 author Kate shares what she’s learned about calming a sensitive gut, while registered dietitian Helen Phadnis looks at medical and diet approaches to improving this common and distressing condition.
We cover everything from low-FODMAP diets to peppermint tea (and the stronger version, oil capsules, which as Kate reports can have unexpected effects). We also chat about the mental connection to IBS and how to improve that without feeling responsible or even more stressed out.
