"With a practice limited to women's health, I have found that Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a common malady that interferes with the well-being of many patients. This text provides a great deal of information, written in understandable language, that will afford significant relief to many. I will recommend it widely."

"IBS runs in my family, and I am just getting over the worst bout of it I have ever had. I have been to the doctor three times in six weeks, and he put me on medication, which has helped immensely. But I think what has helped me more than anything is reading Dr. Salt's book. I purchased his book at my local bookstore after viewing this Web site, and I am doing so much better. He gives so much practical information that is easy to understand and use everyday. I had purchased two other books, but I ended up taking them back because Dr. Salt's book was the best. I have a much better attitude and am better able to cope. THANK YOU!!!!! The book is like an IBS Bible! I refer to it often for reinforcement and encouragement in managing this condition."

    Linda Schneider Denver, Colorado

"Most of us have a family member or two, as well as someone with whom we work, whose quality of life may well improve because of the information in this book. I have a hunch that it will be read by, and proven helpful to, many people throughout our country."
