Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a challenging medical condition. Managing symptoms requires daily attention to diet and lifestyle habits. For best control, take advantage of both conventional and alternative medical options. Mayo Clinic, the nation's #1 hospital, and Gaiam, the alternative health and wellness experts, have teamed up to bring you this integrated health action plan designed specifically to help you take control over irritable bowel syndrome.
Take greater control of your condition.
Follow this three-step action plan:
1. Start with understanding IBS. In this opening segment of the video, you'll meet Mayo Clinic doctors who share the latest medical knowledge IBS causes and triggers, and strategies for managing the condition through a combination of conventional and alternative therapies.
2. Eat well to feel better. Go grocery shopping for healthy foods your family can enjoy with Donald Hensrud, M.D., author of The Mayo Clinic Diet. Next, meet a Mayo Clinic dietitian who explains practical, easy food choices that promote weight loss and good digestion, which can help in managing irritable bowel syndrome.
3. Moderate exercise and stress-relieving techniques bring our action plan into balance. In this segment, Rodney Yee, America's favorite yoga instructor, will guide you through a series of simple, restorative yoga and stress-relieving meditation routines designed to help you reduce the stress and tension that often lead to IBS episodes.
Packaged with the DVD, you will also receive Mayo Clinic's 52-page booklet, My Stress Solution as an added bonus. This valuable booklet contains helpful hints you can follow every day to reduce stress and make your life more enjoyable.
