But drugs aren't always the best option - as Dr. Ash learn from experience. He has developed a program that helps relieve symptoms without drugs - and has applied his knowledge to the treatment of IBS, helping thousands of patients. In this groundbreaking treatment plan Dr. Ash reveals his drug-free approach to relieving the symptoms of IBS, using vitamin C, bioflavonoids, and other herbs and nutrients that help the body to heal itself. He also discusses the role of food allergies; the need for adequate diagnostic tests; and environmental factors, such as stress.
