#03 - Why is poo so taboo?
Release Date: 10/02/2017
The Gut Loving Podcast is all about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and the low FODMAP diet! The low FODMAP diet is a relatively new approach to effectively treat IBS symptoms and is scientifically backed by a vast number of medical studies.
In this episode, we delve into the taboo of POO! Why it is we're so embarrassed to talk about poo and why we need to get over it! We cover what's normal and what's not when it comes to poo, and why learning more about your stools can help you to manage your IBS more effectively. Learn about your IBS sub-type (IBS-C, IBD-D, IBS-M) and what can affect poo type and frequency. We also get into using the wonderful Bristol stool chart (see the show notes below for a link) and symptom evaluation.
