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

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.

Review of First Edition: This is a more general book covering other intestinal problems besides IBD, such as irritable
bowel syndrome, diverticulosis, colon cancer, food allergies, the aging gut, gas, effects of
medications on the gut, and the brain-gut connection. The illustrations of the digestive tract are well
done and much less technical than the above book, It had some good information on the various
places you can feel intestinal pain and what they likely indicate. The information on IBD is...good overview for someone new to the disease or someone still trying to figure out what their
problem or problems might be.

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 GERD, ulcers, and inflammatory bowel. This book was a
real lifesaver to me, especially when my doctor started talking
about doing some diagnostic procedures - it was reassuring and
I felt good knowing what I was talking about when I met with
my doctor (I think I surprised him!). Great book!
