The most comprehensive self-help book ever written for sufferers of poor intestinal health (10 million in the UK). Claire Rayner has praised it as 'a splendidly detailed book… it will be a life-saver for a great many people' and Prof. R. John Nicholls called it 'an invaluable book for anyone with a bowel or digestive problem.'One in five people in the UK suffer from lower gut disorders , which can be extremely painful and embarrassing. In The Good Gut Guide, Stephanie Zinser, a journalist and sufferer of ulcerative colitis herself, confronts these often ignored problems, with sections on: • Irritable Bowel Syndrome • Ulcerative Colitis • Crohn’s disease • Coeliac Disease • Diverticulosis • haemorrhoids • bowel cancer.This comprehensive book is not only an excellent medical resource, but also aims to give support on all elements of life as a sufferer of gut and bowel disorders. The psychological effect of these debilitating and embarrassing illnesses is considered, with advice on how to cope with depression, hospitals and sexual relationships. Diet and stress, often considered to be two of the root causes of gut disorders, are also discussed, as are helpful complementary therapies (including aromatherapy, homeopathy and acupuncture).

An incredible collection of what can go wrong with your gut. The Good Gut Guide provides answers and direction for the unknowing parent, friend or neighbor that has been battling just about any type of intestinal problem you can imagine. Zinser uses humor to break through the embarrassment we all generally feel when talking about constipation, gas or other sensitive issues like these. The book is reader friendly, educational and still amazingly detailed. My nine-year-old daughter suffers from chronic constipation. The Guide provided me with invaluable insight for treatments that had not previously been explored by top physicians over the past five-years. I applaud Zinser for writing such a classy book! When word gets out about ¿The Guide¿s¿ usefulness, I believe that millions of people may very well be healed in the years ahead. The Good Gut Guide is the best tool you can have when you aren¿t sure why your stomach hurts. Take it with you to your next doctor¿s visit, he or she may just learn a thing or two. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
