Getting ready for your holiday or already there (lucky you)? That countdown to time off is exciting, but just like the work and family issues we live with day to day, it can make us more stressed. The outcome can be physical – for some people, stress can trigger the unpleasant symptoms of IBS. Diet is one way to deal with our volatile gut and bowels, but there’s a new treatment that focuses more on the mind – with positive results. A trial at the University of Southampton found that cognitive behavioural therapy can ease the condition in nine weeks. Former HFG writer Laura Day took part and explains how it worked for her, plus our expert Tracy Kelly shares relaxation and visualisation exercises that can help in stressful circumstances (p28).
