One out of every five Americans suffers from the symptoms of IBS, which is the second leading cause for missed work. Irritable Bowel Syndrome addresses the common symptoms and disorders in which tests and x-rays are usually normal. Yet the symptoms are very real. These symptoms and conditions often occur together since they share a common origin: disturbances in the Mind-Body connection. It is Dr. Salt's goal, through Parkview Publishing, to provide the public with the latest information on a wide-variety of health related topics, and facilitate and emphasize wellness.

Irritable bowel syndrome & the mind-body brain-gut connectionUser Review - Book Verdict
Gastroenterologist Salt approaches irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a disorder that affects one out of five Americans, with an eight-week, 12-step program emphasizing a mind-body approach to the problem. To relieve such symptoms as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, nausea, indigestion, and gas, he suggests and explains conventional and holistic strategies that focus on the brain-gut link. Avoidance of jargon and a clear writing style geared to a general reading level make the information more accessible to a larger audience than is the case with most consumer health texts in this field (e.g., Henry D. Janowitz's Your Gut Feelings, LJ 9/1/87). Another plus is the frequent citing of sources and suggested other readings. Salt covers the subject thoroughly, yet his lively, illustrated text escapes the dullness of most works on this subject. Essential for most consumer health collections.
