Irritable Bowel Syndrome is an extremely common disorder that is diagnosed in 50% of cases by people who have consulted a gastroenterologist. Symptoms vary from constipation to diarrhea, stomach pains, colic, headaches, and backache. Conventional treatments such as drugs and high-fiber diets make it worse.

Shirley Trickett offers non-drug treatments for self help, including dietary changes, therapeutic massage, homeopathy, colonic irrigation, aromatherapy, and reflexology.

Key to this new edition are the following new sections:

  • Aloe Vera, l-glutamine, and glucosamine supplements.

  • How to bring down your cortisol levels to manage anxiety and blood sugar problems.

  • How to minimize severe weight loss by bringing down allergic reactions and thereby enabling sufferers to widen their diet.

Shirley Trickett is a former nurse who has worked for many years encouraging the public to take more responsibility for their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being through self-help books. She has also written about panic attacks and depression.
