I must ask, how many studies were conducted and on what population diversities? It seems like a bold statement to say that drinking coffee is healthy for your liver. That is a definitive statement. What about the millions of other factors that determine health or sickness? How can be so sure of yourself as to put people at risk for any number of illnesses simply because of a correlation between coffee drinkers and the absence of liver disease. Were the participants who drank coffee completely free of illness? How do you know that the coffee didn't cause problems in another system? Less likely simply means that less participants developed the one thing that was monitored.View Thread
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is an 'umbrella' diagnosis given to patients that have not been properly diagnosed. In order to accurately treat your symptoms, the causes of them must be identified by a trained doctor. If you have been diagnosed with IBS, it is imperative that you seek a more concise diagnosis.
The diagnosis of IBS tells you no more than what you have told the doctor: that you have irritable bowels. Often, it may be the result of a disruption in your nervous system; particularly the pain matrix in the brain (often found with tissue pain or chronic fatigue) becomes hypersensitive. However, if your doctor does not know what to look for, they will not find the cause.View Thread
