3 Ways To Live Happy And Healthy With Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Let me ask you something. What do Tyra Banks, Camille Grammer and Cybil Sheppard all have in common? They all suffer from irritable bowel syndrome – along with about 20% of the rest of the population, according to recent studies.

I’m the IBS Diva. And I say having irritable bowel syndrome doesn't have to be a death sentence. There are ways not only to cope but to thrive and live a happy, healthy life. Yes, I know, it can be a bit embarrassing at times – always searching for the nearest bathroom whenever you go out, getting up in the middle of movies and only eating certain foods.

The IBS Diva doesn’t let that get in the way of her good time, though. And you shouldn’t let get in the way of yours, either.

Here are the IBS Diva’s three simple pieces of advice for coping with irritable bowel syndrome.

1. You’re still fabulous, honey. Act like it. Change your mindset about this functional disorder. You’re not an outcast. You’re a tough, no-nonsense leader. Believe it.

2. Don’t stress – just rest. Just like the IBS Diva, you need your beauty sleep. Make sure you get at least eight hours per night. Let your body rejuvenate and heal during the night. Then you can wake up fabulous like the IBS Diva.

3. Keep searching. Even the IBS Diva searches for solutions for irritable bowel syndrome. Let’s face it. Having this disorder is no walk in the park. But there are ways to cope and live a happy, healthy life. Search for them while you’re on your journey to self acceptance. It can only help.

Honey, you have to look at irritable bowel syndrome as a challenge that you must overcome, not as a death sentence. With the proper mind set and a willingness to try new and effective dietary changes and medical solutions, you can live a healthy and happy life with IBS.

Are You Paying Too Much to Quit Smoking at Your Local Store

Are You Paying Too Much to Quit Smoking at Your Local Store?

Giving up nicotine is not easy. Smokers have a physiological addiction to nicotine and their behavior has been conditioned to follow a routine that reinforces the habit. Most smokers know that smoking it bad for them, even potentially lethal, yet they continue to smoke.

Its a sad fact that in today's markets the big pharmaceutical companies are able to regulate the prices of consumer products. What I am specifically talking about is the #1 most widely used quit smoking product, Nicorette Gum.

I am here to tell you that you can find the same Nicorette Gum online for a hugely discounted price. Nicotrol Gum currently sold in overseas countries is that solution.

Nicotrol Gum is a rebranded form of Nicorette Gum. This means that it is the same gum as Nicorette, manufactured by the same company, in the same country (all Nicorette products are produced in Sweden) but sold under a different brand name, at a different price.

A typical internet price for a pack of Nicorette Gum in the US is $40.50. Compare that to $24.50 for a similar sized pack of Nicotrol from an overseas supplier. That's a roungh saving of 40%.

There are also other options option available such as generic brands.

Habitrol gum, formally known as Nicotinell gum is another brand of nicotine gum that has become very popular over the last couple of years. Habitrol gum has been said to taste better and is cheaper than Nicorette and last longer than Nicorette Gum.
