Book Description

1 Nov 2007

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a condition that is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Despite common perceptions, only 50% of cases are related to diet and the causes of the other 50% of cases are rarely examined and sufferers are unable to find suitable treatment.

In this groundbreaking new book, Professor John Hunter reveals how you can solve the causes of your IBS. Using his carefully-constructed questionnaire, find out the reasons for your symptoms then turn to the appropriate chapter to learn how to treat them. Irritable Bowel Solutions also answers all the other questions that might be causing concern, such as:

-What if I don't fit any of the types described?

-What do probiotics really do and are they helpful?

-Will my disease always affect me or can I manage it effectively?

5.0 out of 5 stars An end in sight 10 Aug 2009
I have suffered sleepless nights, discomfort and pain for the past 11 years, as a result of stomach problems.Being privately insured I have seen consultants and surgeons for all those years. They have carried out every test known to man,endoscopy, colonoscopy, tubes up my nose and into my stomach, recording results etc. All that they have been able to tell me is, "What is not wrong". Operation wise they have removed my gall bladder, performed an endocinch, and most recently (NOV 2008)carried out a "Nissen Fundoplication". If I am totally truthful none of the above has helped, except making the wallets of consultants and surgeons, fatter.In desperation, with no prompting from the medical profession, I thought I would look into IBS. I saw this book by Prof Hunter, and thought i'd give it a go. After reading the initial chapters and assessing my score, I needed to go on the exclusion diet for 2 weeks, quiet difficult but extremely worthwhile. I am now re introducing foods one at a time as detailed, and monitoring the effect, the results have been surprising and somewhat startling. I am getting to sleep with no problems, my discomfort has gone, and I am looking forward to a new lease of life. So far I have discovered that both YEAST and Pilau Rice, cause me sleepless nights, today I test beef and monitor the reaction, with about 8 other foodstuffs to test.For me this book so far has been a revalation, given me hope, and worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent book on IBS 11 Sep 2009
A very well written book addressed to those people coping with IBS. It is written in a very simple, easy to understand language and gives numerous examples and explanations as to why some things might work for some people and why it doesn't for other people. To make you understand what type of IBS you have, it has a questionnaire at the beginning of the book guiding you as whether this might be your problem and the steps you need to take. The author has done a lot of research and treated a lot of people with IBS trying to find an explanation each time something helped or it stopped working. It offers an insight into a wide range of IBS symptoms and possible treatments/solutions. This is an excellent book for someone who had IBS for many years and tried to cope with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK REALLY UNDERSTOOD MY PROBLEM 26 Mar 2008
This interesting book by Professor Hunter really does explain the causes of IBS and actually understands what we sufferers go through. When GP's can only tell us what we have not got eg. cancer, but cannot offer any help or explanation as to our symptoms, this clearly explains and helps. I have a combination of the two causes and now after trialling a diet can say I have my IBS fully under control after over 16 years!! How fab is that!!! I would recommend this book to patients AND TO DOCTORS so they can better advise their patients.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth its weight in gold 18 Mar 2009
I've seen my gp a couple of times a speacialist bowell consultant on my private helath policy and was in treatment with a hyponotherpaist.

Compare to this book they've all been a waste of money - you can read this book in a day - self diagnose the type of ibs you have (essentially it seems like there are 4 types) most so called health professionals that ive spoken to seem to group ibs in 1 big bucket)

It offers really practical ways to identify and test which type you are - and then offers some really simple steps to sort things out - if you have IBS you should definitel;y read this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Problem solved 7 May 2008
An excellent book which is easy to read and use. There are no fancy long medical terms just straightforward language.
The questionnaires helped me identify what was the root cause of my problem and gave me a huge helping hand to solving it.
From the heart of bottom I thank Professor John Hunter - my life is so much easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading! 14 Nov 2009
Get this book, it has to be the best by far. It serves 2 purposes: (1) At last a real Doctor telling you your symptoms are real, that you do not have a laughable or time-wasting condition and that its not "all in your mind". Just this level of compassion and understanding is invaluable (2)A frank and easy to understand description of IBS - explaining that there are different types of IBS and suitable ways to relieve symptoms depending on the IBS type.

Well written book and easy to understand. After 14 days of observation you can identify what type of IBS you may have and then learn more about your type and how to help overcome the condition and manage it.
