Arnold Flick, M.D. is a retired gastroenterologist and retired Clinical Professor of Medicine. Using his extensive experience, he has written this book to provide accurate and detailed information to help you understand and “tame” your unruly guts.
Taming Your Guts tells you all about conditions called Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGID) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
In non-technical language, Taming Your Guts (TYG) takes you on a journey through the gastrointestinal tract and explains why you have belly aches, constipation, diarrhea, gas, belching, and all those nuisance and embarrassing symptoms that upset you. It tells you not only the “why” but also what to do about it.
Along with those already mentioned, TYG covers the topics of GERD, spasms, laxatives, fiber, incontinence, food allergies, and others. Detailed diet suggestions are included.
