This book has become my encyclopedia on Irritable Bowel Syndrome! If you get anything out of this book you'll become mindful of other therapies meant to heal instead of providing a temporary band-aid for IBS. Larissa Sawicki does a fantastic job of expanding our knowledge and mindset about holistic therapy and how doctors and pharmaceutical companies impact this disease.
This book pushes the point on our blind faith of doctor's pill-popping solutions and our mindless approach to only seek prescriptions. For everyone that experiences that merry-go-round of cramping, bloating, and bowel problems. Buying this book is an investment in changing your life. Surprisingly, this book doesn't offer you a one-stop-shop all-knowing solution like many books on the market today, but instead provides helpful insight into approximate causes of IBS and several complimentary treatments that may very well take the place of prescription medicines.
For example, I didn't have a clue about any potential links between IBS and electromagnetic fields; or mind-body connections.
In an unapologetic approach, Larissa Sawicki identifies several ways IBS continues to become victimless including our haste to blindly adopt our doctor's one-way approach, and the pharmaceutical approach to mislead the public and our neglect to look into scientific research with the abundance of claims about curative powers of complimentary therapies. Admittedly, a mere 15 minutes with my doctor and I'm out the door with a prescription in hand, without a thought or a question about alternative treatments that work just as well. The Mystery of IBS and My Path to Freedom brings to light how we tend to accept the norm without questioning or rationalizing. Overall, the book provides a new of thinking, several new ways of healing, if you choose to look into new therapies. Buying this book made me realize how short sided I’ve been about IBS.
