Why Fennel For IBS You Ask?
I had no clue what Fennel was until I started working at a grocery store when I was 16.
I didn’t know that people used fennel for IBS until several years after my initial diagnosis.
Wish I had discovered this amazing remedy earlier!
The World’s Healthiest Foods states: “Fennel belongs to the Umbellifereae family and is therefore closely related to parsley, carrots, dill and coriander.”.
According to organicfacts.net “The health benefits of fennel include relief from anemia, indigestion, flatulence, constipation, colic, diarrhea, respiratory disorders, menstrual disorders, and its benefits regarding eye care.”
If you haven’t given fennel a shot in treating your IBS symptoms, you should!
