So very different


The book we have recommended below is a rare treat.  So often IBS is simply lumped together, with many annoying books offerring a size fits all explanations of how to deal with IBS.

Throughout this site we often hammer home  the point that things are not that simple.  As a species we yearn for clear cut black and white answers, however the reality is that life is never that straightforward, non more so than here.

Until Differentiation occurs what can we do ?

Other than Crohn’s and Colitis there is very little to no separation of IBS.  This inability to define is no different to a mechanic explaining that the engine of our car does not work, however it is Car Engine Syndrome (CES) and therefore it could be anything.

The stomach is our engine and its failure can have massive implications.  To further the car analogy, should a mechanic make a mis-diagnosis, they will make the engine worse, which is what frequently happens with IBS.

I was frequently told I needed more fibre at the start with horrendous consequences.  That would be the perfect advice for constipation, however my issues were of another nature altogether, all under the banner of IBS.
