One in five adults suffer from IBS, yet IBS still baffles the medical profession as there are no definitive tests for it - it's often the diagnosis given in the absence of any positive tests. As such, it encompasses a huge variety of gastrointestinal disorders and many suffers fail to get the treatment they need.
Take Control of Your IBS brings together over thirty years of research at the busiest IBS clinic in the country and will serve to both educate the reader and provide proven treatment solutions, including more alternative approaches such as hypnotherapy. After reading this book, the reader will be equipped with a multi-faceted treatment strategy - the hallmark of Professor Whorwell's highly successful approach - and ready to engage beneficially with doctors.
Professor Whorwell is a World leading gastrointestinal expert. He has been undertaking research into IBS and other functional gastrointestinal disorders for over thirty years. His unit receives referrals from all over the UK and even abroad and he continues to personally see over 400 new patients a year and reviews a further 1000 patients annually.
