The text succinctly discusses common gastrointestinal disorders of function, and in particular, IBS and related disorders. The book presents a holistic view with the overall theme of enabling patients to feel empowered to heal through understanding the science and the evidence. In lay terms, Conquering Irritable Bowel Syndrome will explain the what (symptoms, definitions, and epidemiology), the why (pathophysiology), and the how do I take control (examination of the evidence, understand the available literature, the accessing of the merits of management strategies, diet, exercise, therapy both natural and pharmaceutical). High-quality, easy-to-understand illustrations and photographs clarify the presented concepts.
