Hi all,This was a fun find, even though it dates back to 2000. It's kind of like being the fly on the wall & getting hear what "they" are saying: http://www.medicalcrossfire.com/debate_arc...er_Exchange.htm I esp liked this part:Donald R. Henderson, MD, MPHChief of StaffDaniel Freeman Memorial Hospital;Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and GastroenterologyUCLA School of MedicineLos Angeles, California"Physicians also should note that IBS recently has been linked to possible infection or bacterial imbalance. Thus the use of antibiotics and probiotics may prove to be of value. In addition, nutritional supplements like bovine colostrum have been proved to be of great value in treating colitis and, I believe, similarly may be of value in treating IBS. The allopathic model for treating IBS has failed miserably because we do not have much understanding or agreement about how to manage this problem. Therefore, from a therapeutic standpoint, I believe we should look toward the alternative models and further investigate the mind�gut interaction."We seem to be witnessing a learning curve here. It's kind of exciting!Cheers, T-
