8 Common Digestive Problems and Effective Treatments

There's something about digestive difficulties that makes them hard to discuss in polite company—which leaves many of us suffering one problem or another in silence. What's more, digestive disorders are placing a "growing burden" on Americans, causing an unprecedented number of clinic visits and hospitalizations, says Stephen Bickston, an American Gastroenterological Association fellow and professor of internal medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University

Yet fixes can be as simple as making informed lifestyle changes or taking over-the-counter remedies. Peppermint oil and soluble fiber, for example, can help people with irritable bowel syndrome; a 2008 British Medical Journal study suggests that both should be first-line therapies for IBS.

We will look at effective choices to treat Reflux, Ulcers, Gall Stones, Constipation, Lactose Intolerance, Diverticulitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Celiac Disease.  Empowering you to take control of your health is important to me.

    Sorry for those not attending. I can schedule a Saturday the end of January at 12:30 including a potluck style lunch if you would be interested. The location would be in Olathe at 159th and Ridgeview. Would you be interested?

      Me too. It's just a very busy time of the year and with bad weather coming this weekend I had to move my travel plans up leaving me crunched on time for other things.

    Sorry to cancel, but I am sick and won't be able to make it tonight. I am rally disappointed to miss it. Hopefully I will be able to make it another time.
