Again I love the "Dummies" book. I know what that says about myself. Love the fact that it's not all Western medicine.

This book is a start at understanding IBS and actually it working on your body! Aside from one small problem, my gut is doing great!

Interesting information, but some of what I consider a bit "off the wall".
