Heather's Tummy Fiber Directions
  • Start with a low dose twice daily
  • Increase gradually
  • Keep increasing until symptoms stabilize

Start with 1/2 level teaspoon, twice daily. Just stir into moist foods with breakfast and dinner. Or, add to an empty cup, then stir with a fork as you gradually add room temperature liquid. Let rest for a minute, then stir again to completely dissolve.

Does not dissolve well in boiling hot or ice cold liquids, but once fiber is liquified you can boil or chill beverage. Or, stir into any moist food.

Gradually increase your dose. Add an extra 1/2 teaspoon every 3-5 days and keep increasing until symptoms stabilize.

Diarrhea can resolve fairly quickly as you gradually increase your dose. Constipation, if chronic and severe, may take several weeks and require a gradual increase to the higher dose range of 4-5 tablespoons per day.

Daily Dosages Adults 12 Years & Older:

On average, symptoms stabilize at a final dose range of 4 to 18 grams (2 teaspoons to 3 tablespoons) per day total, divided into two separate doses. You may need more or less. Max daily dose is 30 grams (5 tablespoons).

Cooking: Add 1 tbsp per cup of liquid, whisk.

Baking: Add 1 tbsp per cup of flour, whisk.

Fast & Easy Diet Help for Safe & Delicious IBS Cooking!

Kit includes a generous supply of Heather's Tummy Fiber for the dietary management of IBS symptoms, particularly diarrhea, constipation, alternating bowel motility, and pain, plus the diet and cookbook Eating for IBS, plus Heather Cooks!. The Tummy Fiber must be used twice daily, staring at a low dose and increasing gradually until bowel motility stabilizes, and then continued daily on that maintenance dose. Eating for IBS has detailed dietary information and 175 delicious recipes, for addressing multiple IBS symptoms. Heather Cooks! lets you follow along step by step to fast and easy IBS friendly recipes.

Heather's Tummy Fiber is a medical food for the dietary management of IBS symptoms. Acacia senegal is a natural (not synthetic) whole food soluble fiber with a clinically proven prebiotic effect. Studies have shown that soluble fiber, as part of the diet, helps regulate bowel motility (alleviating both diarrhea and constipation), and relieves abdominal pain from IBS.

Acacia senegal's prebiotic effect stimulates the growth of healthy gut flora for ideal bowel stability, which can reduce bloating, gas, and bowel irregularities from IBS.

Heather's Tummy Fiber is unique, because it has a good gastrointestinal tolerance and a proven significantly bifidogenic effect. Heather's Tummy Fiber is formulated specifically for the dietary management of IBS and improved bowel stability

Heather Cooks! focuses on cooking fast-and-easy dishes based on fridge and pantry staples, with a homestyle, all-American focus. These traditional recipes (from French toast to club sandwiches to nachos) are typically full of trigger foods, but we'll use simple tricks and substitutions to make them IBS-friendly.

Eating for IBS confirms what every IBS sufferer instinctively knows: that diet plays a direct role in gut function, and that the abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and bloating from bowel disorders can be directly controlled through diet. This is true not just for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but also for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis, plus diverticulosis and diverticulitis. The Eating for IBS diet can make the difference between living a normal, happy, outgoing life versus spending every day stuck in the bathroom enduring pain, bowel dysfunction, and misery.

Contrary to what many believe, eating for IBS and IBD does not mean deprivation, never going to restaurants, boring food, or a limited and therefore unhealthy diet. It does mean learning to eat safely by realizing how different foods physically affect the GI tract, and how foods can help or hurt both diarrhea AND constipation, as well as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and nausea. Foods can either prevent or trigger IBS or IBD symptoms.

For example:

* There are two kinds of soothes the colon and regulates gut function but the other can cause severe attacks

* Dairy is a common trigger...even in people who are not lactose intolerant

* Peppermint, chamomile, and fennel can prevent pain, spasms, and bloating better than some drugs

* Bland foods are not automatically safe foods

In Eating for IBS, Heather Van Vorous, who has suffered from IBS since age 9 and gradually learned to control her symptoms through dietary modifications, offers sympathetic information tailored specifically to the needs of IBS and IBD sufferers. She provides a comprehensive overview of IBS, explicit eating and cooking strategies, travel and restaurant advice, daily menus, supermarket ideas, and 175 delicious recipes. How delicious? Eating for IBS was a finalist for the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) Health and Special Diet Award - also known as the "Julia Child" award.

IBS and IBD sufferers will be thrilled to discover that they can enjoy traditional homestyle cooking, ethnic foods, rich desserts, snacks, and party foods - and don't have to cook unusual or special meals for themselves while their families follow a "normal" diet. Eating for IBS will forever revolutionize the way people with bowel dysfunction eat - and live.

People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome desperately want to eat without fear. This groundbreaking book tells IBS sufferers exactly what they need to know to relieve diarrhea and/or constipation NOW, and how to maintain stability by preventing symptoms in the future. Eating for IBS is the first and only work written by an author with IBS, with the express goal of helping others who suffer from the same disorder.

It offers sympathetic suggestions based on first-hand experience as well as nutritional and medical research, comprehensive eating and cooking guidelines, travel and restaurant advice, supermarket ideas, and gourmet recipes - all tailored specifically to the needs of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

In addition, the IBS dietary guidelines can aid diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain from bowel dysfunction related to Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis (Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, or IBD), diverticulosis, diverticulitis, enteritis, and fibromyalgia.


YOU ARE NOT ALONE! For twenty years I thought I was the only person in the world with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I wasn't, and neither are you. This introduction explains my personal history with IBS and how I struggled, with eventual success, to learn how to control my symptoms through diet. It also tells the story of how I learned that I am NOT all alone with IBS, how and why I began sharing information with other people, and how their personal stories affected me and led to this website and book.

This chapter tells you exactly what you need to know to make sure you have been properly diagnosed with IBS. Odds are that you haven't had all the necessary tests, so they're listed here along with the diseases you need to make sure you've had ruled out. You'll also learn precisely what a diagnosis of IBS means, what it does not mean, what type of research into the disorder has been done, and exactly what is happening to your body during an attack.

This crucial chapter tells you in detail how to rapidly stabilize your GI tract by eating properly. You'll learn to recognize which categories of foods can trigger symptoms – pain, constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating – and why other foods help prevent these problems altogether. Detailed explanations are given for how soluble versus insoluble fiber affects IBS, what fat does to the GI tract, and how trigger foods and drinks physically affect your gut. You'll learn precisely what to eat and what not to.

This is the information you need to easily transition from knowing what to eat to how to eat, as both elements are crucial for IBS. Eating safely is not just about avoiding trigger foods (some of which are crucial to good health), but about incorporating them without risk. How is this done? This chapter tells you, in explicit detail, and gives you the tools you need to eat without fear each and every day, whether you're at home, traveling, or ordering at a restaurant. Learn tips, tricks, helpful hints, and how to focus on substitution, never deprivation, for delicious food indulgences that won't trigger attacks.

Now that you know how and what to eat to keep your GI tract stable, you have to deal with your needs in the real world. Here's how to manage questions, concerns, and a possible lack of support from the people in your life, from friends and family to coworkers. Your health is a priority, and you cannot compromise it for someone else's sake simply because they don't understand or appreciate your dietary needs. This chapter gives you the mental support you need to overcome IBS.

Try a wide sampling of delicious dishes, from refreshing drinks to home-baked breads, from hearty soups and main dishes to sinfully scrumptious desserts. You simply won't believe they're all IBS safe – but they are! Recipes vary from traditional American favorites to exotic ethnic specialties. Each and every one is a genuine treat to eat, and a healthy choice for anyone who enjoys a great meal - whether they have IBS or not.

These suggested daily meal plans are structured for maximum convenience. Many of the items listed can be prepared well in advance, and will keep for many days in the fridge to be used as needed throughout the week. Dinner for one night is typically served as lunch the next day, and homemade quick breads serves as snacks, breakfasts, and desserts. You're certainly not obligated to follow these menus precisely. I've tried to design very generous daily suggestions, both in terms of variety and quantity. You can easily reduce the scale and make changes or substitutions. The important thing is to follow the basic formula of having soluble fiber as the basis for each meal or snack, the first thing you always eat, and the item you eat in the greatest quantity.

You might need to re-stock your kitchen with IBS safe staples and ingredients. This chapter tells you exactly what you need.

You should be able to easily find all the ingredients needed for the IBS kitchen right in your own local grocery store or health food market. If you can't, this directory offers all the resources you need.
