The February edition of the IBS Treatment Center newsletter is available! http://www.ibstreatmentcenter.com/Newsletters/Feb11.pdf

Dr. Steve Wangen of Seattle has one of the best websites on digestive health out there. His newsletter is always packed full of interesting information for people with these and other issues.

This month’s edition discusses migraines and how they can sometimes be eliminated by a change in diet. There is also information on how to get connected with support groups, upcoming conferences, and cooking classes.

To sign up for the newsletter, visit Dr. Wangen’s website at http://www.ibstreatmentcenter.com/index.htm and fill in the boxes on the left sidebar.

You are almost guaranteed to learn something new by browsing around the website. I frequently refer people to it because it has examples and explanations of food allergy testing.
