The Second Brain Lib/E : A Groundbreaking New Understanding of Nervous Disorders of the Stomach and Intestine
by Michael Gershon and Peter Berkrot




Overview -

"Persuasive, impassioned... hopeful news for those] suffering from functional bowel disease." -- New York Times Book Review

Dr. Gershon's groundbreaking book fills the gap between what you need to know--and what your doctor has time to tell you.

Dr. Michael Gershon has devoted his career to understanding the human bowel (the stomach, esophagus, small intestine, and colon). His thirty years of research have led to an extraordinary rediscovery: nerve cells in the gut that act as a brain. This second brain can control our gut all by itself. Our two brains--the one in our head and the one in our bowel--must cooperate. If they do not, then there is chaos in the gut and misery in the head--everything from butterflies to cramps, from diarrhea to constipation. Dr. Gershon's work has led to radical new understandings about a wide range of gastrointestinal problems including gastroenteritis, nervous stomach, and irritable bowel syndrome.

The Second Brain represents a quantum leap in medical knowledge and is already benefiting patients whose symptoms were previously dismissed as neurotic or it's all in your head.
