Is fiber good for me? It depends…

Apple-garden-free-license-CC0There is more to know about fiber than you think!

If you have an inflammatory bowel condition it can be complicated and you could do yourself more harm than good.

We all think about fiber being good for constipation which it is but there is more to the story. What compounds this problem is that your doctor usually does not understand this and recommends fiber to anyone with any kind of bowel problem.

A doctor should never prescribe fiber if there is evidence of IBS, colitis, ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s as it will make it worse. This is one of the misunderstandings about fiber.

If you give fiber to someone who has chronic constipation – that’s a good thing. Give it to someone with IBD – that’s a bad thing.
