when my IBS was at its worst, I lived in London – one of the busiest most stressful cities in the world. I spent 7 years there and for those 7 years i carried the following around with me every day in my bag incase of emergencies…

for hunger (or getting stuck on the tube) – its vital that ibs suffers eat little and often and don’t let themselves get hungry or stomach acid will build up…

1 bottle of water (not fizzy) or diluted cordial like barley water

1 banana – you can guarantee that if you had to eat it it would  be black so i suggest you get a banana case for it now!!

1 packet of plain very low fibre biscuits
