We have been quite fortunate to receive a free copy of the e-book titled I HAVE IBS…NOW WHAT? It is written by Ashkan Farhadi, MD, MS, FACG and based on what I have read, it is quite a comprehensive guide with regard to the condition called irritable bowel syndrome.
We have talked about IBS several times in the past and it is a very real condition. It is also a sensitive one as not many people like to talk about such things. However, for those who are suffering from IBS, or those who might think that they have the condition, the situation is very real.
So what is this book really about? As I mentioned above, it is basically a comprehensive guide about IBS. It has 7 chapters, starting with an introduction to the condition. General facts – statistics, description, and so on – are clearly discussed in the first chapter. The other chapters talk about the nature of the disorder, its symptoms, and treatment.
The book by Dr. Ashkan Farhadi is very detailed but at the same time, the words and structure used are very simple. As a result, it is quite easy to understand. Anyone who can read can actually learn more about IBS through this e-book. I would have to say, however, that despite its comprehensiveness, it should not replace consultations with a medical practitioner. IBS, much like other disorders, may have different effects on different people. As such, the best course would be to get in touch with your physician.
Then again, if you want to do some reading on IBS, this book would be a very good start.
