2011: Breakthroughs & Help for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


October 31, 2011 was a big day for irritable bowel syndrome, with IBS as the topic of choice for keynote addresses at major gastroenterology events around the world. Less than a decade ago, IBS was relegated to the psychosomatic disorder category and was thought to have no known physical cause…Studies in the past have looked at the role of stress in exacerbating the symptoms of IBS, but the first study to look at “lifetime trauma” aspect took place this year at the Mayo Clinic.
