In brief: Not yet...but

Ibs (irritable bowel syndrome) is a common malady.
While no absolute cure is available, new evidence suggests that more can be done now for symptom relief and control than ever before. Many sufferers of ibs find the use of certain "probiotics" an effective resource in combating & managing the symptoms. A gastroenterologist can discuss these new findings & advise you on newer developments. Call now.
