Part 1: what could it be?
Bloating, tummy pain, wind, reflux, constipation, diarrhoea – whether it’s constant or just occasionally can have a massive impact on our lives.
Have you ever turned down a social event because you’ve got tummy pain or diarrhoea? Or chosen different clothes because the bloating made you look 9 months pregnant (even if you were a man!)?
It doesn't even need be all the time, even if these are sometimes-symtpoms they can really bring you down.
Well, this is part 1 looking at how to get rid of these more-than-just-annoying symptoms.
Doing the right thing for health is often met with great enthusiasm, but falls over when it comes to practicality. With the best intentions we stock our cupboards with pretty jars of dried beans, our fridges with sauerkraut and kombucha, and vow to eat more raw veggies.
Two weeks later, the beans still look immaculate, the sauerkraut has been well and truly rejected by the family and the veggies look a bit worse for wear.
But we started with good intentions (and it’s the thought that counts right?!).
