Digestive Disorders

What is a digestive disorder?

Digestive orders are increasingly common and refer to any kind of disorder which affects the digestive system.

This includes heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and constipation.

Managing digestive disorders naturally

Depending on the digestive disorder, there may be a specific diet for your condition.

The low FODMAP diet can result in big improvements for those with IBS whereas a low residue diet can help manage IBD flare-ups.

If you have any serious symptoms such as significant unexplained weight loss, diarrhea which persists for more than two days, severe pain or black/bloody stools then you should seek medical advice as soon as possible.
