Up to one in five people worldwide are troubled by typical IBS symptoms, and most have not seen a doctor about them. Many doctors don’t know much about it and many dismiss IBS as being “in their head.” The good news is that a quiet revolution is going on that looks promising.
Cramps or pain in the stomach, feelings of bloating or even swelling up like a balloon, rushing to the toilet because of diarrhea, or not being able to go at all; these are some of the symptoms of the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Knowledge is power; those troubled with IBS need to take control by understanding the problem and its potential solutions. This book aims to help empower people who suffer with IBS as well as their families. What is IBS? Why do some people get the disease? What can be done about it now that truly works?
