I would like to dedicate this site to those individuals who have been medically diagnosed with IBS and continue to suffer with symptoms while having many unanswered questions.

When a benign disorder that has no effect on longevity and has no known association with disease or cancer has an economic cost to our society of $30 billion and these individuals are undergoing nearly twice as many abdominal surgeries as people without IBS and suffer with significant numbers of missing work days and loss of productivity and impairment at work, as a medical community we need to do more.

This site is an attempt to positively impact through education and alternative strategies of management this tremendous burden to our society.

I want to thank my wife for her continued support and inspiration in giving me the courage to create this site.
