I was diagnosed with IBS a few years ago. I did an awful lot of reading and found that eating as many plants as I could, with a good diversity, could help my situation.

Among others, I came across Megan’s first book, bought it, and enjoyed the reading. I then bought the second book, which has been a fantastic tool on my IBS journey. Although I am not a vegetarian, I have steadily increased my plant intake, and over time, implementing the new tools I have learned, all of my symptoms of IBS have disappeared.

I really enjoy the 30 plant points per week exercise, and the first time I did it, I was surprised at how many different plants I was actually eating. I love the challenge and have found that I am trying lots of different plants, some of which I love and some of which, well, you can’t have it all! Following The Gut Health Doctor has really encouraged me to diversify what’s in my shopping trolley and always go for the mixed option (mixed nuts, mixed lentils, etc.).

If this story helps other people, that is all I can ask for. When there are so many chemicals, etc., in foods, it is so important to eat whole foods. My sister swears by a well-known butter spread, and I found that there were 12 ingredients in it, and 8 of those were chemicals! I only use local organic butter with two ingredients. Dr Megan Rossi has really opened my eyes to the power of gut health.
