Great book for people that suffer with IBS and people who care. It would be a great book for doctors to read. I have suffered with IBS for more than 20 years. I have seen many doctors, taken many tests, tried diferrent medicines, and many different remedies. This by far has helped me the most.
The book is wonderful about telling you how different foods effect your IBS. All the years I’ve been going to doctors for my IBS none of them have ever explained why certain foods bother my stomach or even suggested changing my diet. I had learned on my own some foods that set off my IBS, with this book I have found more and the reason why. I’ve learned more about my IBS from this book than from any doctor I’ve seen. It is a must have in your library and kitchen!
