How To Live Well With IBS

I am well.

 

I heard this from Wayne Dwyer at 3 am on a night when I had turned on the TV because sleep just wasn’t happening.

 

Three simple words yet so powerful.

 

For people struggling with IBS the words “ I am well” don’t often cross your mind. But they should.
