In her revolutionary book, Listen To Your IBS, colon and bowel syndrome expert Jini Patel Thompson presents a series of effective, natural treatments for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that have worked for thousands of people around the world.
Listen To Your IBS will give you all the specific information, tools and strategies you need to completely heal your IBS without drugs. The up-to-date book incorporates the feedback Jini has received from thousands of readers who have already used and benefitted from her innovative IBS treatment.
Any problem with your digestive system (even mild) is impossible to ignore for very long. Although IBS is not as severe as Crohn’s disease or colitis, it still has the power to completely disrupt and take away your quality of life. Depending on the severity of your IBS, you may:
Have trouble sleeping well at night.
Be in constant pain throughout the day.
Be unable to engage in social activities due to diarrhea or flatulence (gas).
Experience “brain fog”, poor memory, plugged ear, or floaters in your eyes.
Have trouble eating due to pain and bloating.
Suffer from mouth ulcers, anal or rectal fissures, constipation, spasms, cramping, hemorrhoids, etc.
Many people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have already tried pharmaceutical drugs and modern medical treatment with little or no success. Until now, very little information has been available on effective, natural treatments for IBS. Listen To Your IBS is a welcome and unique approach to treating irritable bowel syndrome.
With wit and compassion, Jini teaches readers how to control their bowels, transform their pain, heal their rectal fissures, relieve gas and bloating and prevent and manage IBS flare-ups using completely natural methods. All levels of symptoms are addressed, from mild gas and diarrhea to severe pain and malnutrition.

What to do AFTER you've healed your IBS to ensure ongoing good health.
Jini Patel Thompson’s first book, Listen To Your Gut, [LINK] has sold many thousands of copies in over 40 countries. But, because IBS is the mildest of the intestinal diseases, there’s a lot of information in Listen To Your Gut that someone with IBS does not necessarily need. So Jini wrote this shorter, more affordable book, Listen To Your IBS, specifically for people with irritable bowel syndrome – containing everything you need to heal yourself and take your life back.
Listen To Your IBS Helps You HEAL:
Your damaged mucosal lining (results in inflammation, pain, and reduced nutrient absorption).
Existing, or ongoing infection in your gut, and all of its consequences - diarrhea, constipation, pain, cramping, acid reflux, etc.
A lack of good, protective intestinal bacteria.
Systemic damage due to prescription drug use (endocrine/hormonal system, immune system, nervous system, etc.).
An inability to properly digest or absorb nutrients from your food
Emotional trauma or wounding being carried in the cells and tissues of your gut.
Ongoing stress and emotional events that continue to produce harmful biochemical reactions in the gut.

The book begins with Jini’s intriguing and encouraging healing story – she once suffered from serious widespread bowel disease, but has now been drug and surgery free for over 20 years. Jini emphasizes the importance of a holistic mind/body/spirit approach to healing, pointing out that stress is a huge component of IBS. She outlines other factors that can cause or contribute to a bowel syndrome, such as antibiotics, toxins, parasites and even vaccination.
Chapter Two Supplements & Treatment Protocols
Jini introduces the most effective herbal remedies and supplements for both rapid relief of IBS symptoms, and to begin healing the underlying causes(s). She explains how to identify the best quality supplement; how to choose the right supplements for your symptoms (constipation, diarrhea, gas, heartburn, hemorrhoids, etc.), and how to begin supplementation (Hint - don’t start them all at once!).
Chapter Three Food as Medicine
This chapter answers your questions about organic foods, red meat, dairy products, sugar, artificial sweeteners, soy products, fiber, raw foods, farmed salmon, caffeine and alcoholic beverages. Jini provides specific healing diets for common irritable bowel symptoms, and introduces the concept of an elemental liquid diet (or bowel rest diet) for serious flare-ups and to identify food allergies and sensitivities.
Chapter Four Lifestyle & Environmental Factors
Did you know that fumes from Teflon-coated pans can kill birds, even at normal cooking temperatures? This chapter guides you in detecting and eliminating toxins and irritants in your living environment that are negatively impacting you and your family’s health. Many of these are unrecognized, such as power lines, cell phones, food additives, microwaves, vaccinations, and synthetic materials in your mattress and bedding.
Chapter Five Allopathic Medicine
Would you rather suppress your symptoms, or heal them? Are invasive exploratory procedures really necessary? Allopathic (Western or modern) medicine treats symptoms aggressively and in isolation, without considering the root cause or the impact on the rest of the body. Jini outlines a gentler holistic approach that strives to heal the underlying cause in order to resolve the symptoms; involving body, mind and spirit. She lists the known side effects of eight commonly prescribed IBS drugs. Never stop taking a drug abruptly – the chapter ends with instructions for properly weaning yourself off medications.
Chapter Six Mind/Body Therapies
Jini has spent over twenty years and tens of thousands of dollars experimenting with healing bodywork and alternative treatment therapies, from acupuncture through hypnotherapy and massage therapy to yoga. In this chapter, she narrows them down to the bodywork, and body/mind therapies she has found to be particularly useful for people with irritable bowel syndrome.
Chapter Seven Use Your Mind To Help Your Body
It has now been established that thoughts and emotions produce actual chemical reactions or changes in the physical body. Jini describes how to create positive physical and emotional reactions and changes using affirmations and visualization. She then takes it a giant step further to teach you how to control your bowels and transform your pain using the power of your mind.
Chapter Eight Treatments I'm Often Asked About
Jini answers questions about popular products and treatments that her readers have often asked about like the Blood Type Diet, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, colon cleansing, Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, MSM, plant sterols, kombucha, Seacure, ashwaganda, detox protocols, etc. She gives you her opinion on these treatments and remedies and shares her personal experience with them. Jini also teaches you the safest way to test new remedies you might be interested in and minimize the chances of an adverse reaction.
Chapter Nine Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
Pregnancy, breastfeeding and the rigorous demands of parenting present a special challenge for people whose bodies are not strong and healthy to start with. In this chapter Jini outlines the special physical and emotional challenges faced by people with moderate to severe IBS who choose to have children, and offers some common sense solutions.
Feedback for Listen To Your IBS
“At particularly stressful times, such as exams, my symptoms can return but I'm learning how to cope with that. I'd like to thank Jini for helping me realize that in order to feel better I had to change not only my diet, but also my lifestyle and the way I thought of my IBS. Positive thinking really does help! Thanks again Jini."
Lisa D., Edinburgh, Scotland
"Just wanted to pass on to you my thank you for your book and the help I received from it. It is by far the best book I have read for my symptoms of IBS, diverticulitis, and lactose intolerance. I followed many of your suggestions and within 3 weeks the pain is gone, the burning has eased, the nausea has subsided and the dreadful diarrhea has stopped!! Keep up the good work!"
Debbie F., Arizona, USA
"The initial diet was quite strict however, I now have quite a regular, normal diet and consume small portions of alcohol. Obviously this is a fantastic situation from the prospect of being told I would need to take pills for the rest of my life to where I take none. Many thanks for the advice in your book."
Max R., Dublin, Ireland
“In the last month my IBS, due to stress and not treating my body right, flattened me, put me in bed with no appetite, anything I ate caused me horrible misery enough to get me to go to a doctor, and I hate doctors. I could barely walk, spending every day dizzy and nauseous, I thought my life was over.
Jini’s book is the best-researched, best material I have found anywhere. Her background comes from a medical family yet she healed from alternative health methods and her family had the bucks to fund her inexhaustible search trying every healing mode out there. These other writers didn't do this. Their knowledge is very narrow and won't work for everyone.
The Jini book is well grounded and real, and I found information immediately that has been of immense help for me, the work is really an encyclopedia as mentioned before, of things to try. It’s not really a program it’s a menu of things to try and conditions and their solutions. It’s really an impressive body of work... so YEAH buy the dang book. Save your life. If money is a real problem sign up for her free mini-course, it’s full of very valuable information and doesn't cost a cent.”
