12 million people in the UK suffer with IBS, and 6 million of us suffer with anxiety or depression. Yet there has not been a solution to the devastating conditions – until now.

#1 Amazon best-selling author Shann Nix Jones, once an American radio talk show host and now a farmer’s wife living in Wales, reveals how you can heal these chronic symptoms for good, in her new book The Kefir Solution: Natural Healing for IBS, Depression and Anxiety. This book reached the top 100 overall ranking on Amazon even before its publication date of June 26, 2018.

The Kefir Solution explains cutting-edge research that reveals the connection between IBS, anxiety and depression, due to the recently discovered brain-gut axis. As a result – if you heal the gut, you heal the brain – and vice versa. Simple!

Shann offers a natural healing protocol that alleviates IBS and the mood disorders that nearly always comes with it. How? By working with the powerful natural probiotic, kefir. The Kefir Solution contains practical information as well as stories, tips, and recipes, in a conversational, easy-to-read book that combines common sense and uncommon science to help you and your family.

If you, or anyone you know, have been suffering from an on-going IBS, anxiety or depression, this book is the lifeline you’ve been waiting for!
