Four out of ten people visit their doctor because of gastrointestinal complaints. These widespread disorders exact a high toll in pain, suffering, and expense. Written by one of the world's leading experts in gastroenterology, this revised and up-to-date edition of Your Gut Feelings focuses on the most common problems of the lower intestinal tract--the bowel or "gut"--offering new ways of coping with them and reliable approaches to prevention. In clear language, free of medical jargon,Dr. Janowitz describes the most advanced methods and instruments used in the treatment of the human colon and intestinal problems--including the newest research on diagnosis testing, medication, and surgical treatments--and outlines the risks they carry. He also explains how to determine whether to treat such day-to-day problems as gas, "belly-ache," diarrhea, and constipation at home or to bring them to a doctor's attention. Covering a wide range of current colonic and intestinal disorders fromthe most common, irritable bowel syndrome (often known as spastic colon), through the more serious complaints such as colon cancer and sexually transmitted disorders, Dr. Janowitz provides basic information on the symptoms and causes of each problem. With clear and useful diagrams, photographs, charts, and tables, this indispensable handbook is must reading for anyone who has ever been afflicted problems of the intestine.

Product Description

From Library Journal

It is estimated that 40 percent of the visits made to doctors' offices are about gastrointestinal problems. Dr. Janowitz reports on the symptoms of these diseases, the tools used to diagnose them, and the treatments used to cure them. He explains such ailments as irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, colon cancer, and sexually transmitted bowel diseases. He also covers the use of x-rays and endoscopic procedures. He recommends a high fiber diet to help prevent some intestinal problems. Since most people experience indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea at some time in their lives, this authoritative book is recommended for most health collections.

I look forward to reading his new book "Good Food for Bad Stomachs".

I wish my GP had read this 10 years ago...(yes, I am bitter!)

I have been researching for answers to my personal intestinal problems for 4 years. This is one of my best resources. Easily understood. Everytime I go back to it, I learn something new. Helps fill in the blanks that the doctors don't explain aswell as give reasons for questions to ask your Doctor.

5.0 out of 5 stars IBD Book Store - Review May 19 1997
By A Customer
Review: I use this book often, since like many Crohn's sufferers, I also deal with a broad spectrum of intestinal problems. In very clear and understandable language, Dr. Janowitz, a GI at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and the author of Indigestion and Good Foods for Bad Stomachs provides information on the symptoms and causes of an array of intestinal problems, including IBS, Crohn's & UC, diarrhea, constipation, rectal bleeding, colon cancer, food allergies, intestinal gas and more. He describes the latest tests and procedures (ie. colonoscopies, barium x-rays), medications, and surgical treatments and the risks each carry. This is one of my most used reference books on IBD and other problems, probably because he provides a lot of medical wisdom mixed with good common sense. On Thrive@Health's list of recommended reading for IBD. Visit the IBD Book Store (associated with Amazon.com) for books and reviews related to IBD, Crohn's, colitis, and other digestive disorders

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource June 30 2000
Janowitz provides a good resource with this book, which provides an overview of possible conditions that affect the lower intestinal tract. This book is not just for someone with a chronic condition, although irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and diverticulitis are covered. Janowitz also has excellent chapters on coping with the occasional food poisoning episode or traveler's diarrhea. His overview of the functioning of the intestinal tract is one the best I've come across in all my resources. As with most intestinal subjects, Janowitz doesn't have a lot of answers - more coping information - but he does seek to present diet and medical therapies for each condition. He does not spend enough time on alternative therapies or the various nutritional concerns that accompany lower GI problems. A good read and possibly a purchase if you suffer from one or more of the problems outlined.
