Iím a 39-year-old female with IBS. Iíve been working with a dietitian who specializes in GI issues to help me make positive changes to my diet. In addition to eating healthy, I might be interested in incorporating herbs into my care. How would you suggest I do this?

Angela Johnson: First of all, itís great that youíve made a commitment to eat a more healthy diet. And, itís good that you found someone who specializes in helping patients with GI issues. Just as you have done with the dietitian, I would suggest that you work with someone who has specialized training in herbal medicine. This means finding someone who is nationally board certified in Chinese herbal medicine. Someone with this level of training has extensive education and training (3Ė4 years of education and clinical training) to use Chinese herbal medicine. The benefits of working with a nationally board-certified practitioner of Chinese medicine are many. The biggest benefit is that he or she will work one on one with you to create herbal formulas based on your own individual needs. In addition to helping to treat symptoms related to your IBS, he or she can incorporate other herbs to address other things that might be distressing you.
