Unfortunately, health issues often come our way in groups of two or more. Each health issue often is accompanied with or results in other health complications, thus the need for looking at a combination of health concerns and risks when formulating our nutrition plans and lifestyle changes. In case of IBS, there are numerous symptoms that might accompany it. It is for that reason, that we have included separate guidelines for those who might suffer from any of the following common symptoms and conditions along with IBS: anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, constipation, depression, diarrhea, excess weight, gas/flatulence, heartburn, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, indigestion and stress. In addition we have separate guidelines for those who wish to follow the Low FODMAP diet.
One of the factors that makes “Choose This not That” series of publications different from all others available to you in the market is that we offer nutrition guidelines for likely COMBINATIONS of illnesses and risks that may be relevant to your situation. We also give you specific guidance by telling you exactly which fish, fruit, vegetable, nut … is the best for you as well as listing the worst items. We give you an ordered list of food items within each food group, not just a food group.

“Proper nutrition and other alternative treatments show great promise in preventing and treating many of the illnesses that we deal with every day. I encourage all my patients to follow appropriate nutrition and research other options for themselves. The Choose This Not That series are an excellent step towards improving people’s knowledge in this area.”

“The Choose This Not That series of books and apps provide dietary recommendations focused on common chronic health problems. They are easy to understand and thus easy to implement into daily life. Most doctors would find it difficult to discuss dietary recommendations at the level of detail found in the series. They should serve as a valuable complement in helping people manage chronic illnesses through dietary and lifestyle modifications.”
