IBS Symptom Relief at Home

The symptoms of IBS can be relieved with cognitive behavioral therapy, which has traditionally involved costly sessions with a trained therapist. However, a successful new alternative program, developed by Dr. Jeffery Lackner at the University of Buffalo, allows patients to undergo the same treatment in the comfort of their homes for a fraction of the cost. Lackner studied the effectiveness of the program by using three groups: a therapist-assisted group, a home-based program group, and a control group that simply monitored their symptoms. Seventy-two percent of the home-based group reported improvement, as opposed to 60.9% in the therapist-assisted group. Lackner cites the study as an important find and suggests that further research be done to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. Medical News Today, June 26, 2008
