Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a mysterious illness in which the large intestine fails to function normally. Its causes are not fully understood and treatments have often been ineffective. Now Jonathan Berkowitz uses cutting edge research to provide a compelling and effective approach to treating this complex illness. Using the best of conventional and natural therapies the author shows how an individualised programme - treating all the underlying causes - is the best way to heal IBS. * Food allergies and intolerances can aggravate IBS symptoms but changing your diet and including more fibre can bring relief * The severity of IBS is greatly affected by the emotions so psychological interventions including stress reduction may provide a great deal of relief for those with IBS * A number of vitamins minerals and herbs have proved remarkably effective in relieving the discomfort of irritable bowel * There are safe alternatives to drugs.
Alternative therapies such as acupuncture biofeedback and hypnotherapy can provide effective natural approaches to IBS * Research has found that starting an exercise programme can also be of great benefit to those with irritable bowel * Conventional drugs may be necessary for symptom relief so the author alerts you to the pros and cons of a wide array of pharmaceuticals
