Dr. Gibbons lays out the causes and effects of I.B.S. He gives his own medical history that has effected him and how it lead him to find answer on how to best help himself. I have read the book and now follow his diet that he has explained what one needs to do to get immediate relief. I feel so much better now I can not believe the difference. Anyone who suffers with crohn's disease, celiac sprue, colitis, diverticulosis, galactosemia, infant colic, post-colostomy colitis, ulcerative colitis will benefit from this book. There are so many area's that are symptoms of I.B.S that I never even realized. My doctor was unsure at first when I started this diet, but he has seen the results and now believes, but more importantly, I feel great.

When I first browsed this book I said "Yes I know that", "Yes I know that","Yes I know that". I put the book back on the self. After a couple of weeks I decided maybe their was something in the book I didn't know. I went back and bought it. It was nice to find comformation of what I had found over the years to be helpful. My Doctor always looked at me like I was crazy when I told him these things. This book is a must read for anyone with bowel problems.

Format: Paperback
This book was the first one that actually helped me with my
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). His thesis is based on the
inability of some human digestive systems to properly digest
fructose (which is found in most foods and drinks in the
form of corn syrup.) His suggestions really made a
difference!

Format: Paperback
I had been to 3 separate doctors, had numerous tests, and tried a lengthy list of medications. I found out about this book in a chat room and the reviews were so glowing that I thought it must be a marketing scheme. I bought it anyway because I had nothing to lose at that point in my life. As I read the book, I felt vindicated and thought he was describing my life. This book changed my life. For anyone that has ever suffered from fructose intolerance this will make sense to you....my husband and I can now go out to dinner and a movie instead of a movie and then dinner (so that we can race home after for me to be sick!)
