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.

Review

"Intestinal problems are subjects no one likes to discuss and subjects about which most people get the wrong or even worst possible advice. Your Gut Feelings offers the right advice. It will be of enormous help."--Dr. Frank Field, Senior Health and Science Editor, WCBS TV (on the first edition)

"Throughout, this is up-to-date...[and] easily understood."--Kirkus Reviews

"Gastrointestinal diseases are extremely common; therefore, a guide for the layman is an extremely worthy objective. The author's objectives are very well met....Written for the general public; the author is one of the most experienced and outstanding authorities in the field....A well-written description of the various aspects of gastrointestinal diseases authored by a foremost authority in the field. It addresses an important topic for the public and is a very lucid and up=to-date presentation of current knowledge. It will be a useful source of information for public education." --Seymour Sabesin, MD, Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center

Format: Paperback
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

Format: Paperback
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.

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.
