Ruth’s point of sharing her message about Irritable bowel syndrome

I want you to know that no matter how bad your Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is, there is hope. If I can turn my life around, so can you. It will mean taking a good hard look at yourself which this book will help you do. I know it won’t be nice at times, and there’ll be resistance. We often don’t want to acknowledge the things going on in our lives that could be partly responsible for our IBS. Facing these things means you have a choice to make. You can remain as you are and accept the life you’re leading. Or decide to make those changes, as difficult as they may be. If you want my advice, facing them is the only way through this. I rejected the idea that stress was the cause of my IBS for years. Stress which is the root cause of IBS. So we have to deal with that if we’re going to heal.

Ruth rejected the idea that stress was the cause of my IBS for years.

There may be many areas of your life that need to be addressed. I thought I wanted to be a successful career woman. At that time, with my limited view, this meant working in the corporate world. A world that quite frankly didn’t suit me. As I progressed in my career, the job roles became more demanding and less fulfilling. I started to hate work. It felt like so much pressure, too many targets and not enough resources. I’m sure this will resonate with anyone working in the corporate world. I’d look around at work, and no one seemed to be phased by the demands. Yet I was falling apart, heading for a nervous breakdown. I knew something had to give. I decided to resign. There’s more to life, I told myself.

Ruth believed when there’s underlying stress it affects every aspect of our lives.

Thankfully I’d already embarked on my new career, and was training to become a Nutritional therapist, whilst working full time. But it was still a stressful and uncertain time. My partner was out of work, and we were in the midst of a recession. If only I’d known then what I know now. I could have saved myself a year of stress. But there’s no point dwelling on the past.

What my IBS struggle taught me is to listen to my gut instinct, because that’s my higher being communicating with me, directing me to where I should go and what I should do. I had already taken voluntary redundancy from another job that had become unbearable. Having taken 6 months off to think about what I wanted to do with my life, I had decided to become a nutritional therapist. I thought if I could understand what was going on with me and fix me, I could fix anyone.

So in some way, although I had no idea what I was going to do once I resigned, there was a plan. I still had two years before I’d graduate as a Nutrition Therapist, but I knew a new life was waiting for me. So I resigned. My CEO asked if I had anything else lined up, to which I answered no. To resign with nothing lined up to some people must seem reckless, stupid, irresponsible. I didn’t care. I knew I had to leave for the sake of my sanity. And I’m so glad I did. I decided to follow my dream. To work in an area I’m passionate about. To be involved in something that impacts peoples lives in a beneficial way. I feel honoured every day to be working with some truly amazing people and blessed to have had the opportunity to run my own business helping people.

Keep focused on what it is that you want.

If you’re going through something similar, keep focused on what it is that you want. Don’t give any attention to the things you don’t want. And always listen to your gut. The gut sends us messages when things aren’t right in our lives. I believe each of us owes it to ourselves to live a truly fulfilled, happy life. The question is, are you ready?

Ruth’s insightful book draws on the author’s own personal journey in recovering from debilitating IBS, as well as her experience in helping her clients overcome theirs. Ruth invites you into her world and gives you the tools you need to succeed in your recovery.

What this book will do, is help you get back in control and prioritise doing something positive for yourself. Take control now. Decide today to make the changes you need to get rid of your troublesome IBS symptoms for good.

“If I can do it, you can too! I was plagued with debilitating IBS for over 20 years. I now have a healthy, robust digestive system, and I can show you how to do exactly the same” said Ruth, who now owns and runs a successful business helping others.
