Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Questions & Answers

Q: What causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and how can I be helped?

A: There are four main causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS):

1) Gut spasm
There is a problem with the normal and automatic muscular action and function of the GI tract which results in gut spasm and unpleasant symptoms. You will learn how to change this.

2) Gut sensitivity
There is increased feeling in the chest, abdomen, gut, intestine, and rectum. Learn how to block this increased internal sensitivity

3) Gut triggers
The sensitive GI tract over reacts with spasm to many influences in the diet and environment called "triggers". You will be able to identify and eliminate them.

4) Irritable Bowel Syndrome & the Mind-Body/Brain-Gut Connection
There is a powerful "connection" between the mind and the body/gut. You will learn about the relationship between stress, psychology, and symptoms, and how to heal and be healthy.

Q: What about colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and diverticulosis? Can this book help me if I have these disorders?

A: These are different diseases than Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), but many people who have them also have irritable bowel syndrome. So, they can benefit from this book too!

Q: How can my tests be normal when I continue to suffer from the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

A: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other functional GI disorders are not diseases. There is not any inflammation, infection, or blockage for tests to detect, yet the symptoms are very real!
