    Very informative and uplifting

    After suffering with IBS for 14 years this book is like a lifeline. Between this book and the one. U Heather Van Vorous I am revamping my diet and my lifestyle. The information about the blood type diet in this book was very interesting. I also learned relaxation techniques. To top it off the recipes are exciting and makes feel like I can have IBS and still enjoy food! I highly recommend this book!

    The most informative source of information on this difficult subject that I have found.

    This book had me when it said, right in the beginning, that it was common for IBS patients to be labeled hypochondriacs by doctors. It went on to carefully and completely explain the digestive system in all its glory, and IBS in all its frustrating forms. An invaluable handbook for those with this life-long debilitating disease.

    Poor referneces

    The fact that this book even references Andrew Wakefield, a scientist whose science had been completely discredited because of poor and unethical methodology, is disheartening and makes me question the validity of the rest of the book.
