Originally published in 1951, this book by Dr. Sidney V. Haas, who introduced banana feeding in the therapy of celiac disease, and his son, Dr. Merrill P. Haas, represents the most extensive report published at the time on the subject. The first two-thirds of the book deal with the historical aspects of the problem, the various theories of etiology, and the methods of treatment proposed by different workers in the field. The final part of the book is devoted to the authors’ own experience and opinions, with comparisons of therapeutic results and prognosis on the basis of differences in dietary management. “[T]he subject is treated comprehensively and objectively. The writers’ style is clear and direct, and their approach to controversial aspects of the problems of celiac disease is fair and judicious.”—JAMA Internal Medicine, January 1952
The clear, accessible guide to the only medically proven programme to treat IBS, The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet introduces this cutting-edge approach for the first time. Based on extensive clinical research, this book will show anyone suffering from IBS, coeliac disease, lactose intolerance and related conditions how to relieve symptoms through simple changes to the food we eat.

They act as 'fast food' for gut bacteria, leading to imbalances in gut flora, bloating and discomfort. This book reveals how to identify and avoid foods that are likely to cause symptoms and gives delicious, healthy alternatives to include in their place. Full of essential information, 80 fabulous recipes, beautiful photography, meal plans and suggestions for eating out and special occasions, The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet marks a turning point in the treatment of IBS.
