A New Way To Address IBS
Parallel is a 3-month FDA-authorized, prescription-only digital program that reduces the severity of symptoms for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is intended to be used together with other IBS treatments.
71% of U.S. IBS patients have said they are dissatisfied with their care.1
There are few effective IBS treatments and very limited options for patients suffering from IBS that alternates between diarrhea and constipation (IBS-M).
79% of U.S. IBS patients feel they have either no control or inadequate control of their symptoms.2

The Brain-Gut Connection
Science has revealed that your brain and your gut are in constant back-and-forth communication. In fact, they’re so connected that scientists even call the gut the “second brain.”4
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) allows us to influence the communication between your brain and gut in order to improve IBS. Dr. Emeran Mayer explains in this short video.

As Parallel tracks your symptoms, it provides guidance based on the unique biological, environmental, and psychological aspects of your IBS.
You’ll develop new skills, build new habits, and get access to a toolkit of resources to help you live better with your IBS symptoms.
Parallel won't replace your current treatment; it is intended to work in combination with any IBS medication your doctor may have prescribed.
