Making an irritated bowel happy…
Not that long ago, I figured out that the food I ate irritated my bowel immediately AND caused the ugly merry-go-round of disrupted hormone levels and mind-changing issues, like paranoia, anxiety and terrible moods, all at the same time.

AND THEN I would say, “oh it’s just the food and wine combo last night that’s upsetting me – remind me not to eat that together again”.
BUT there were times when I’d eat the KIWIBURGER not to cure a hangover – and still couldn’t do the drive-thru. BIG TROUBLE.
