My IBS Journey
I was always a "normal" person, until 2 years ago. After taking a 3-month cycyle of an anti-fungal for a funky toenail, I began to develop a whole host of unexplained digestive issues.
After visiting with 2 primary care doctors, and 2 GI specialists, I was given the diagnosis of "IBS-C" and advised that I would have to take more prescription medications to manage my symptoms.
I found this path unsatisfactory, as it was aimed at treating the symptoms, rather than the core issue. After much research, I was lucky enough to discover the whole world of FODMAPs and low FODMAP eating. It is the only strategy I have found to manage my IBS.
I have always been a cook (35+ years in the kitchen so far!). Once settling on this diet as a path forward, I set out to create recipes that allow the rest of my family to enjoy eating without being impacted by my dietary issues.
I hope you enjoy the journey! I am happy to share what I have learned along the way.
