Question & Answer, What You Will Learn:

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!


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 Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & the Mind-Body/Brain-Gut Connection help?

    A: The average time that a doctor will spend with you is less than 15 minutes in duration. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important for you to assume the major responsibility for your own health. This means that you need accurate information about Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and about how to be healthy. With Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & the Mind-Body/Brain-Gut Connection, you can review what you need to know to stop the symptoms of IBS or another functional GI disorder in the privacy of your own home, on your own time, and at your own pace.
