    Hi CMA: I like Scott Brady's book - Pain Free for Life. I don't own it, but I have read it. If you look at a description of the book, it does talk about IBS. But what I think is really interesting about the book is that Scott himself had major digestive issues (I can't remember if it was IBS or not), and he talks about how that improved for him through TMS therapy.

    Here is a link that may be helpful: http://tmswiki.org/ppd/Irritable_Bowel_Syndrome_(IBS)

    I would treat it as if it were TMS. Follow Dr. Sarno's advice. Write down your stressors and journal. If the symptoms make it difficult to think of anything else, you could always try Immodium.

    Hope is healing! :)
