Some will tell you that there is no cure for Functional digestive disorders (FDDs), like dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)… Without being completely cured, with the help of regular internal exercises I developed, I live my life as if I was, because at the earliest sign of pain or symptoms I do the exercises to help eliminate them. I hope my experience will enable as many of you as possible to get some relief from FDDs with or without medication.
The “Personal Approach” section describes in simple terms the symptoms I experienced, as well as some of the hypotheses developed to understand and in order to relieve FDDs. I then explain in detail the exercises for gas evacuation and for the release of nervous tension, and consequently, of pain. As this is a little known approach, as far as I know, I explain in detail the exercises and the various levels of improvement one can expect.
The “Literature Review” section is divided into six parts: the Rome Diagnostic Criteria, the description and treatments recommended for the most common ailments (flatulence, reflux, constipation, diarrhea, migraine, etc.); a few known causes of abdominal pain (food, allergies, diseases, etc.); some recent hypotheses (central nervous system, traumas, psychosomatic causes, depression); exercise suggestions from some authors; and, recommended means of alleviating some of the symptoms (homeopathy, herbal medicine, diet, food supplements).
In my experience, whatever the approach used to treat FDDs, the results will be improved if the gas release and relaxation techniques are used in combination with it. I am convinced that FDD-related symptoms can often be treated effectively through continuing efforts, a generous and caring attitude towards oneself, better self-knowledge and… good judgment (hence the title Dyspepsia and IBS for the Wise).
Mr Samson of Baie-Comeau, Canada, wrote : “To date, your technique is the most effective in bringing me some relief.”
In my view, this book is the most complete to learn how to treat oneself naturally for symptoms related to FDDs. In my case, one hour of internal exercises a day allows my to live a pain free life even with FDDs. My book is meant o show you how.
