HelpForIBS.com's Irritable Bowel Syndrome Newsletter has been called "the best available IBS news source with a uniquely empathetic patient focus." The IBS Newsletter is approaching its 200th issue, is offered via free email subscription, and has been sent bi-weekly to over 90,000 IBS subscribers for seven years. All past issues are permanently archived and publicly available at http://www.helpforibs.com/news/.
The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Newsletter has received both national and international recognition throughout its seven year history for providing broad scale patient feedback to IBS physicians and dietitians, including a citation for excellence by the Dutch IBS Association, and a presentation to the European Associations for IBS by President Fien Stellingwerff.
The IBS Newsletter focuses on current hot topics and IBS research findings, as well as original IBS lifestyle articles that support patient self-management. Every issue features one of Heather's IBS-friendly recipes with a seasonal and fresh focus, such as the recent holiday favorites Pumpkin Bourbon Pie and Luscious Eggnog Quick Bread. (As Heather notes, "People with IBS can definitely have their cake and eat it, too!")
Special letters from IBS patients are always a highlight, as subscribers can share their obstacles and success stories with readers.
The unique "Ask Heather" section covers a wide range of IBS patient interests, from diagnostic criteria and questions to ask gastroenterologists to diet tips and tricks. Popular topics have included a "brain attack" discussion of the mind-body pathology of IBS, gender and hormone issues that affect Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and organic medical foods for symptom management.
Local and community IBS events are publicized, as well as sales and specials offered by HelpForIBS.com
