Synopsis

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is the term that includes Crohn's disease (which can affect any part of the gut) and ulcerative colitis (which affects the colon) - two chronic auto-immune conditions that cause gut pain, whole-body symptoms and poor digestion leading to nutritional deficiencies. Both are on the rise in the developed world and are newly affecting developing economies such as China (where the author was actually diagnosed). The link with the standard Western lifestyle is evident, yet what elements of that lifestyle can be modified to make a difference? And how can sufferers live with symptoms and 'flare ups' that do not respond to treatment and/or lifestyle changes? What is the real-life experience of IBD and what can be done to take back control? Jenna Farmer offers an holistic and positive guide to living with IBD, combining conventional, nutritional, stress reduction and other lifestyle approaches, drawing on her blogs, ebooks and website www.abalancedbelly.co.uk. Throughout, the book is 'illustrated' with case histories from Jenna's blog and other contacts, and from her own experience of delayed diagnosis and listening to her symptoms.

Jenna Farmer was first diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2012 and has been passionate about raising awareness of what it is like to live with the condition ever since. Her love for healthy eating led to her studying for several Nutritional Therapy qualifications and she began to chronicle her attempts at living a balanced, healthy lifestyle with IBD on her blog www.abalancedbelly.co.uk in 2013. The website covers everything from travelling with the disease to easy-to-digest recipes and medication tips. Over the years, her site has grown significantly and Jenna has written for a variety of other health and nutrition websites also.
