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.
