* The IBS Cooking Show - Help For All IBS Symptoms!

* By the Best-Selling Author of Eating For IBS!

* Delicious, Fast, & Easy All-American Favorite Foods

* Great Recipes For Families & Children

* 5 Fun Shows With 8 Simple Recipes Made Step-By-Step

* Beautiful Watercolor Illustrated Recipe Cards Included

Step into my kitchen and watch Heather Cooks!, television's only cooking show with fabulous food for good digestive health. Everything we cook is low fat, high soluble fiber, and avoids all red meat, dairy products, and egg yolks.

Insoluble fiber foods are carefully incorporated for good nutrition. Most importantly, everything we cook is fast, easy, and absolutely delicious that's a promise.

Each of the five full-length shows offers step-by-step instructions, and is aimed at people who have little experience cooking, or who are unsure about how to modify their traditional cooking methods to meet the dietary needs of IBS.

Beautifully illustrated recipe cards are included, so you can easily cook right along with the shows.

If you don't quite believe that healthy cooking truly can be both fun and a real treat to eat, you're in for a wonderful surprise. You'll have a great time making my dishes, and an even better time eating them!

In Volume 1, we'll be 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.

Each show offers lots of helpful advice for shopping, cooking, and eating safely for IBS while keeping your diet nutritious and delicious. Above all else, Heather Cooks! will convince you that cooking great meals for good health is not a contradiction in terms.

Review:

I just love the Heather Cooks! DVD that I just received. It has made my week. I have been suffering for about 15 years now and these shows are just wonderful. I can actually eat things that taste good again. I was wondering if you will be making any more Heather Cooks! DVDs? I would love to purchase more of them. Not only are they very informative, but they are also very uplifting and you are so cheerful and make it look like less of an inconvenience to cook special for my IBS.

I also purchased the Fennel Tummy Tea and I just love it. And the IBS hypnotherapy CDs (after just one session I already feel less stress and pain). Heather, you are a life saver. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

It makes me smile just to watch your shows. I feel less alone in my suffering. I actually have some hope now that I found your site. I also own your book "Eating For IBS". I have owned it for a little while, but it wasn't until I watched your shows that I realized how easy it could be to try the recipes.

I have had the unfortunate experience of absolutely no help from the American medical field. I have been to about 5 different GI doctors over the course of 15 years and had every test possible. Every single doctor would try to put me on medication. All the medications would do was make me worse. Every single one of them. I even tried to go to a nutritionist, on my own, with no success. She had absolutely no idea what to do for me. In the end, each doctor would say there was nothing else they could do for me. The last one I saw just told me to start every day with Immodium, and every day I would take the maximum doses allowed. Yet I would still feel horrible and have sudden and painful attacks. I have lost a lot of weight and have trouble finding clothes that fit, since I am so small. And to top it off, I have been seeing a urologist for the past 4 years for Interstitial Cystitis, another painful medical condition that also involves many trips to the bathroom. This has been very frustrating for me.

I am still struggling, but the last few days I have been watching your shows and following your years of research and gentle advice. I am starting to feel better. I am still afraid to leave the house at times, and feel somewhat imprisoned by the IBS (and feel alone in my suffering, at times). My husband has been very understanding and my children are just used to my episodes. We never go on vacation anymore and I base all my outings around available bathrooms and if I feel "OK" to go out.

I love to cook, but it has been very difficult to cook for my family and then try to figure out something that I could actually eat. Your recipes are healthy, delicious and beautiful enough that I can feed them to my family also. They will never know the difference. Food is actually starting to look appealing to me again.

I look forward to seeing more "Heather Cooks" shows in the future. And I have already become a frequent visitor of your site. I just love it. You have brightened my day tremendously.

Sincerely,

I just received the cooking video and I would like to congratulate you and Will for such a terrific job! I enjoyed it very much, it is artistic, informative and fun. I just added some Bac-Os to my chicken breast sandwich. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! I had never heard of such a thing. It is terrific. CRUNCH!!!! I have not eaten a tuna melt since I got IBS in 2003 but that's what I'll do next.

As always, you're the best, thank you.

About the Actor:

"Who's Heather? And why is she dedicated to serving people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome?" I have had IBS for more than thirty years, beginning in childhood, although I was undiagnosed for the first six years (and told by my pediatrician to "quit whining" as the pain was "all in my head"). I had no choice but to try and learn how to control the disorder on my own, which took many years of (often excruciating) first-hand experience and a great deal of research.

I'm now a health and special diet author with a particular interest in helping others with bowel disorders. I'm the founder of HelpForIBS.com, the largest IBS organization in the world. My mission is to offer education, support, and tangible help that allows people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome to successfully manage their symptoms through simple, safe and effective lifestyle changes.

I have also developed the Heather s Tummy Care line of certified organic medical foods for preventing and relieving IBS symptoms.

My published work includes Eating for IBS, the only explicit dietary guide and cookbook for people with bowel disorders. Eating for IBS then led to my second book, The First Year: IBS, a comprehensive view of the disorder and every way to successfully manage it. Together, these works have become the two best-selling, best-reviewed IBS books in America.

I also created and hosted the digestion-friendly cooking show Heather Cooks! for Seattle television and DVD. I write the twice-monthly email "Heather's IBS Newsletter" which currently has nearly 100,000 subscribers. I also authored the very popular "Heather's IBS Diet Cheat Sheet", which recently celebrated five years of success and over one million patient downloads.

My writing has led to an ongoing Canadian clinical research study of the groundbreaking dietary guidelines in Eating for IBS; this work also led to my inclusion in the 4th edition of Who s Who in Medicine and Healthcare. Today s Dietitian has featured my IBS dietary guidelines, and I regularly exhibit at the international Digestive Disease Week conference to reach gastroenterologists and internists. As a result, I ve become recognized as the foremost "patient-expert" on IBS in America.

For far too many years I thought I was the only person in the world with Irritable Bowel Syndrome but now I know for a fact that I am not alone.

Today my goal is to reach every single person with IBS who s looking for help. I want them to learn how to manage their symptoms as successfully as I have, and I want them to have happy, healthy lives.
