Episode #8

We need to use our heads to be able to learn different strategies to manage problems where medications and dietary changes fall short with IBS.

In this podcast, Dr. Jeffrey Lackner (PsyD) and I spoke at Digestive Disease Week in San Diego about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT and its role as a validated treatment option for IBS patients. CBT is no longer just for anxious or stressed patients. Rather, positive physical changes are occurring in the gut related to abdominal pain and stool regularities. CBT is now a legitimate treatment option, like diet or medication to manage patient’s IBS symptoms thanks in part to Dr. Lackner’s research and work.

Jeffrey Lackner (PsyD) is an internationally recognized authority on the behavioral treatment of chronic pain disorders, especially Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). He has influenced doctors and therapists guidelines worldwide. He is a Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Behavioral Medicine, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo.
