Help for IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Diverticulitis, Food Allergies, Other Gut Disorders.
The most comprehensive self-help book ever written for sufferers of poor intestinal health. This book is splendidly detailed and invaluable for anyone with a bowel or digestive problem.
One in five people suffer from lower gut disorders, which can be extremely painful and embarrassing. In this book Stephanie Zinser, a journalist and sufferer of ulcerative colitis herself, confronts these often ignored problems, with sections on:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Crohn's disease
- Coeliac disease
- Bowel cancer
This comprehensive book is not only an excellent medical resource, but also aims to give support on all elements of life as a sufferer of gut and bowel disorders. The psychological effect of these debilitating and embarrassing illnesses is considered, with advice on how to cope with depression, hospitals and sexual relationships.
Diet and stress, often considered to be two of the root causes of gut disorders, are also discussed, as are helpful complementary therapies (including aromatherapy, homeopathy and acupuncture).
