We definitely all need cheering up after the challenging year we’ve been through. So Christmas treats are in order! But if you suffer with IBS, Christmas can be challenging because eating foods you don’t usually eat or having a blowout might mean having to deal with the consequences for the following days/weeks. Gas, bloating, brain-fog, pain, constipation and diarrhoea are all symptoms which could bring a downer on our festive celebrations. So I am going to share a few tips on how and what you can eat to help you feel good over the holidays and avoid an IBS attack.
One of the best parts of Christmas is the big traditional meal – so let’s do it right!
Unfortunately there are some classic Christmas favourites that are a minefield for those of us with digestive problems:
Two supplements that are also good to keep to hand over this period are some probiotics and plant source digestive enzymes. You can start taking a multi strain probiotic now until after the holidays. And the enzymes are taken with main meals when needed and can help support digestion and reduce constipation, gas and bloating.
Happy holidays enjoy the festivities or just take a much needed rest.
