Although IBS Impact welcomes constructive collaboration, it is independent of all of the resources linked here. A few of these sites partially involve sales of items or services that some people with IBS have found useful. These sites are included here because they also have significant educational content and each site owner has a long-established role in the IBS community as a supporter of IBS awareness and/or advocacy. IBS Impact does not receive payment from any other site or organization. IBS Impact members and visitors to our site are encouraged to make their own informed decisions about using or supporting any site or organization linked here.
