Dr Pixie McKenna talks digestion next Monday on independent.ie

Digestive health issues affect millions of us every day; in fact, new research shows that two thirds of us have suffered from bloating and or trapped wind, with around 60% saying it affects them at least once a week.

The symptoms associated with digestive health problems can be annoying, uncomfortable, painful and worrying for those suffering from them, while more than half say they feel embarrassed about the symptoms.

Dr McKenna will be showing us what foods are good for your digestive health and what ones to avoid if you suffer from digestive health problems.

Less than 30% say they would visit a doctor because of them, despite the fact for many they can have a big impact on their life.

However, bloating and trapped wind are often triggered by food and lifestyle choices and in many cases can be corrected with some simple changes.
