As many as one in five Americans have symptoms of IBS.

Living with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a tremendous challenge, and understanding the disease is key to developing management strategies that will reduce discomfort. This comprehensive yet accessible book provides all the current information on the disorder's possible underlying causes as well as its symptoms, clinical features and effective treatments and therapies, including both complementary and non-drug therapies.

The authors also recognize that, although there is no cure for IBS, there are many options to treat the symptoms. One of the most effective therapies is changing the person's diet, as the pain and discomfort usually worsen after eating certain foods. Specific dietary changes are imperative for those managing IBS, and this book provides a detailed nutritional plan, suggestions for implementing that plan and information on vitamin and mineral supplements. It also includes a list of foods that are known to aggravate IBS and a detailed list of food items that are regarded by experts as safe alternatives, also known as the Foodmap Diet.

Comprehensive in its scope, the book features more than 100 delicious recipes (with accompanying nutritional analysis) that have been specially created to help manage IBS. The recipes cover virtually every meal, from breakfast and snacks to main meal options and entrees, including vegan and vegetarian selections.
