#14 IBS Awareness Month

Happy Friday Brain-Gut lovers!!

Next week marks the start of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month. April is a time where we can reflect on gastrointestinal symptoms, raise awareness for this common functional gastrointestinal disorder, and provide support for friends and family who suffer.

IBS actually affects 15% of American’s, which means that you very likely know someone who suffers. If so, tell them to check out the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, which has some excellent resources to help those who suffer from IBS, including treatment options.
