It seems nowadays that we are happy to discuss almost every aspect of our health, and reveal to doctors, psychologists, phone-in hosts and their audiences, in fact almost anyone who will listen, our most personal and intimate problems. There remains one last taboo, one last subject for whichpeople will suffer in silence - problems relating to their bowels. This reluctance is seen by many within the medical profession as being a significant cause of the increase in bowel cancer within the developing world. 'The Bowel Book' is a frank, entertaining, and accessible book offering adviceon these and related problems, from the view of a medical specialist with many years experience of dealing with these problems. The book provides advice on every type of problem such as haemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and colitis. Most importantly, it highlights the earlywarning signals of such life threatening illnesses such as bowel cancer. Along the way it discusses and assesses alternative treatments such as colonic irrigation, and controversially contests some of the widely held views on the benefits of high fibre diets. A book that everyone will need at some point in their lives.
