Editor reviews

If you have been reading a lot of straight down the line medical type books on irritable bowel syndrome then this title will be a breath of fresh air.

Without omitting important medical information on IBS it avoids boring or confusing the reader with too much technical medical information and instead focuses on what it is like to have the condition and the simple natural approaches that can be taken to deal with it.

The author focuses on dietary advice, including many delicious recipes, and stress reduction techniques such as meditation, yoga, and various relaxation techniques. Their is a compassionate tone throughout the book which is exactly what those suffering from this frustrating condition need.

Obviously this book is one sided in its approach to IBS being purely from a natural medicine perspective, but if you suffer from IBS and have had no help from the standard drug/psychotherapy approach, or you simply prefer not to pursue those options, it could be just what you are looking for.
