What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About IBS

by Winifred Conkling Richard N. Ash

A leading expert offers a revolutionary, drug-free program to help more than 35 million Americans eliminate the symptoms of IBS. With the exception of only the common cold, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (known as IBS) accounts for more work and school absences than any other illness. But drugs aren't always the best option-as Dr. Richard Ash learned from experience. Twenty years ago, he suffered from symptoms of a severe form of arthritis and was prescribed high dosages of cortisone, but the side effects nearly killed him. Instigating his own research, he developed a program that helped relieve his symptoms without drugs-and has applied his knowledge to the treatment of IBS, helping thousands of patients. In this groundbreaking treatment plan, Dr. Ash reveals his drug-free approach to relieving the symptoms of IBS, using vitamin C, bioflavonoids, and other herbs and nutrients that help the body to heal itself. He also discusses the role of food allergies; the need for adequate diagnostic tests; and environmental factors, such as stress. Readers will learn about symptoms, diagnosis, and how to determine the right diet-everything they need to live a healthy, IBS-free life.
