The Need to Find Balance

Dealing with IBS during the holidays can be daunting. Therefore, it is essential that you learn to balance the needs of your body with the demands of the holiday season. Self-care must be at the top of your holiday to-do list.

The holiday season is a busy one, what with all the shopping, wrapping, card-sending, hosting, baking, cooking and socializing that goes on. It is important to recognize that if your body is not feeling well, you may not be able to do all of the things that you would like to or used to do. Making changes to accommodate your body’s needs will not be giving in to your IBS, but compensating for its presence in your life. Make a vow to yourself to do things differently this year! This step-by-step guide will help you to do just that.
