Have you ever been affected by something so bad you were willing to give up 25% of the remainder of your life IF you could be cured or find relief? That's exactly how many people living with IBS - Irritable Bowel Syndrome - feel. Today's show is about their story. 

In this episode I interview Kate Scarlata, MS, RDN -- a former guest of the show and creator of the #IBelieveinyourStory campaign. 

In this episode we discuss: 

  • What is IBS?
  • How prevalent is the condition?
  • The inadequate amount of funding currently allocated for IBS research
  • Resources available to support IBS patients

To close out the show, I'm addressing a topic I increasingly find to be of interest to moms with school-age children -- social skills. As I prep for an entire episode dedicated to this topic, I'm sharing the first insights I've gained from an article shared with me by my friend Deanna entitled "How Can I Help My Kids Develop Better Social Skills." As kids spend more time engaging with screens and less time playing with friends navigating social norms can be a challenge. This piece offers some insight into some basic principles we as parents can follow.
