Why do I think IBS is a throwaway diagnosis? Because it’s a catchall diagnosis that gained massive popularity even though it most often means "I don't know what the hell is wrong with you.”
Did you know that IBS potentially affects about 15% of the population
worldwide? That’s a lot of throwaway diagnoses, so let’s think about how
we got here. First of all, 40% of this affected population aren’t formally
diagnosed. Meaning, 4 out of 10 of individuals with IBS just “live with it”.
That is, constantly dealing with abdominal and intestinal issues without
taking any action thinking “this is normal” or possibly being told “it is all in your head."
What about the other 60%? Usually they land the IBS diagnosis after physicians run very valid, but maybe not-so-thorough tests or treatments: antibiotics, endoscopies, colonoscopies, lactose intolerance tests, celiac tests, and the like. If these tests come back negative: first class ticket to IBS town with usually nothing more than a sheet of paper with a low FODMAP diet plan on it and possibly some Metamucil or peppermint pills.
Regardless of your diagnosis status, I am here to tell you that it is not “all in your head” and you do not need to “live with it”. Endless dieting and fiber supplements may not be your only remedy (I’m sure you’re totally bummed by this!). My goal with this book is to provide you an actionable, functional medicine-based guide that focuses on root causes of “IBS” to help you understand what your body is and is not telling you. More importantly, my hope is that in following my guidance, you can get on the path to feeling
Now let me introduce you to the Morra Method. Heck yeah I named a method after myself. It is simple to understand and to remember but it can take you a long way. You can remember this with the very fitting acronym “GUTS”. It is a cyclic approach that can be used to treat and track your healing progress. I am going to lead you through the remainder of this book by educating you on each phase of the Morra Method and what to do about it.
