Excellent reviews by Library Journal and Publishers Weekly

Publisher: Marlowe & Company

Did you know that IC patients are 100 times more likely to have IBS? My first sign of IBS was in my childhood but it became very severe in my late 20's before my IC started. I struggled for years trying to understand what foods triggered by painful bowel spasms. In late 2005, I had yet another severe IBS attack and after I found Heather's website and sound suggestions, I got it completely under control. And, I learned that many of the things that I thought were helping were actually hurting! If you're struggling with IBS, this is a must read! - Jill 'You couldn't pay me to eat chocolate' O.
