The book, "Trust Your Gut," by physician Greg Plotnikoff and psychologist Mark Weisberg, teaches neurohormonal retraining, or the ability to evaluate and react appropriately to pain, pressure and bloating associated with irritable bowel syndrome. The book does not attempt to characterize IBS as psychosomatic, but it does offer patients a way to analyze and control their response to symptoms, and it reflects a growing awareness of the complexity of the gut and the important connection between mind and body.
