The knowledge he shares in thisbook is extremely enlightening and will help countless doctors and patients.Thank you!" --Allison Siebecker, ND, MSOM, SIBO Consulting Physician Lecturer and Author "In Dr. Sandberg-Lewis' textbook, a parable about "Thinking Outside The Box"is described. Medical practitioners have boxed themselves into a tight and limitedbox of conventional wisdom derived from medical school and residency(where they were taught by a doctor just a few years older than themselves).This is anything but wise. Functional Gastroenterology takes a fresh look atGI disorders and can be a great resource to people with an open mind wishingto expand their horizons."--Leonard Weinstock, MD, Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Clinician, Author, and Researcher " Presenting options for comprehensive physical exam, laboratory assessmentand treatment, this text provides the basis for primary and specialty physiciansto diagnose and treat functional GI tract disorders."--Jonathan Collin, MD Publisher, Townsend Letter--The Examiner of Alternative Medicine
