"Terrible. Do not purchase this if you have IBS. The information contained within is entirely things which you already know from having experienced the disorder, or things your doctor probably told you. It is almost as if the video is set up for people who are not afflicted with, but want to learn about IBS. MORE IMPORTANTLY, some of the information is so vague that attempts to follow it may actually make symptoms worse for some IBS sufferers. There is no explanation as to the different types of fiber available to us (soluable and non-soluable)which is the most basic tenet of getting IBS of any type under control. And the eating for health section is completely generalized, without any consideration for the fact that the person watching the video most likely has IBS. They are recommending foods like tomatoes and whole grain breads because of their nutritional value, ignoring the fact that these foods will exacerbate the problems of those suffering from IBS. I am very dissappointed by this production and it should not be supported in any fashion. Instead, i recommend two books, both by the same author, whose name i have forgotten, one called 'Living with IBS: Year One' and "Eating for IBS". They give far more in depth examinations of what we can do to lessen and alleviate many if not all of the symptoms associated with IBS. This DVD, on the other hand, offers only useless platitudes at best and dangerous misinformation at worst."

"I received the DVD about IBS and Weight Loss from my husband for Christmas. As an IBS sufferer for most of my adult life I found this DVD to be helpful and clear in their explanation of IBS. I enjoyed and are using the many dietary tips. The Mayo clinic doctors are wonderful and offer great insight. The weight loss DVD is great as well-down 5lbs and counting"

"This DVD is like a private house call with Mayo expert doctors.
I loved how they interacted with their patients.
All their tips are working for me.
After years of discomfort (and embarrassment) I'm on the road to relief.
Thank you Mayo Doctors for helping me to understand and manage my condition."
