Happy Gut, Happy Life – Living With Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), October 27 – November 17

October 27, 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Are digestive issues interfering with your life? If so, you may be suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common disorder that affects your intestines. Signs and symptoms of IBS can include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation.

In this 4-session online engagement class, we will examine what is happening in the gut with IBS. You will learn about FODMAPS - types of carbohydrates found in certain foods such as wheat and beans - and how they impact IBS symptoms. We will also look beyond diet and explore integrative approaches and methods to tame an upset tummy, relieve the painful symptoms of IBS, and support a healthy and happy gut. This deep dive will combine lecture with group discussion, self-assessment, and home practice.

Instructor: Christina Becker, MPH, RDN, NBC-HCW, is an integrative nutritionist, board-certified wellness coach, and certified intuitive eating counselor with more than 17 years of experience working in the healthcare industry. She provides 1:1 and group coaching, talks, corporate programming, and seminars for Silicon Valley Fortune 50 companies, Stanford, and her private practice.

Class details are subject to change.
