IBS Awareness Month Giveaways + more!

Hello Friends,

As we wrap up another important IBS Awareness Month, I wanted to take a moment to share a few special offerings from my friends at Fody foods and Dr. Schär. But, first, in case you missed the complimentary webinar on World IBS Day titled: IBS Updates: from Mimickers to Novel Therapeutics and the Patient Journey, you can watch the recording here. I was joined by Dr. Darren Brenner and Dr. Megan Riehl for this informative webinar–and I have to admit this was one of my favorite IBS webinars I have participated in. The moderators Jeffrey Roberts M.Ed from IBSpatient.org as well as Johannah Ruddy M.Ed of Tuesday Night IBS provided a well-rounded program. We shared a few pictures and one poem from our recent request for IBS patient creative submissions via pictures, prose and poetry.

We are so thankful for all of our wonderful sponsors for this event including Fody foods, Mahana Therapeutics, Salix pharmaceuticals, metaMe Health, Dr. Schär, IBS patient support group, Tuesday Night IBS as well as my company, For a Digestive Peace of Mind.

As an additional offering, Fody Foods and Dr. Schär are providing giveaways!! Both of these companies offer a wide array of delish gluten free and Low FODMAP products.

As part of their partnership, Fody Foods will give away ONE (1) exclusive VIP Gift Box of Low FODMAP goodies (valued at $200) that includes a selection of Fody’s gut-happy pasta sauces, condiments, salsas, sauces, snacks AND MORE! Simply CLICK HERE to enter by signing up for Fody’s newsletter, and you’ve got a chance to win!

We also teamed up with Dr. Schär to give away an IBS bundle of awesomeness! THREE (3) lucky winners will receive: One (1) Schär Sherpa blanket, one (1) Schär tote bag, and TEN (10) Low FODMAP Schär products! To enter, head over to CONTEST PAGE and sign up for our Schär Newsletter!

Lastly, I wanted to share all of the beautiful pictures, prose and poetry we received via our IBS Experience request.

When you can, take some time and view the creative submissions we received, here. Seriously, they are all amazing and certainly evoke many feelings about the IBS lived experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who submitted all these works of art! Many of these artistic creations will also be displayed at a special rooftop invite only event during DDW (Digestive Disease Week), an important GI-based scientific meeting.
