The most comprehensive self-help book ever written for sufferers of poor intestinal health (10 million in the UK). Claire Rayner has praised it as 'a splendidly detailed book... it will be a life-saver for a great many people' and Prof. R. John Nicholls called it 'an invaluable book for anyone with a bowel or digestive problem.'

One in five people in the UK suffer from lower gut disorders , which can be extremely painful and embarrassing. In The Good Gut Guide, Stephanie Zinser, a journalist and sufferer of ulcerative colitis herself, confronts these often ignored problems, with sections on: * Irritable Bowel Syndrome * Ulcerative Colitis * Crohn's disease * Coeliac Disease * Diverticulosis * haemorrhoids * bowel cancer.

This comprehensive book is not only an excellent medical resource, but also aims to give support on all elements of life as a sufferer of gut and bowel disorders. The psychological effect of these debilitating and embarrassing illnesses is considered, with advice on how to cope with depression, hospitals and sexual relationships. Diet and stress, often considered to be two of the root causes of gut disorders, are also discussed, as are helpful complementary therapies (including aromatherapy, homeopathy and acupuncture).
