Does Diet Matter?
Most gastroenterologists will tell you that what you eat does not matter with
bowel disease. This is intuitively ridiculous. Your digestive track isn't working
properly and what you eat
Diet does matter with IBS and IBD, in several ways:
- Nutrition and supplements
- Food sensitivity and intolerance
- Irritants to the colon
In most discussions of diet and bowel disease, these three issues are confused and not
of them are addressed. I'll take each in turn and tell you what I've learned through extensive
reading and experimenting with my own body.
