Suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Research Study

If you have a current diagnosis of IBS, are 18 years of age or older, are not pregnant and have never been diagnosed with any other gastro-intestinal disorder (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or gastro-esophageal reflux disease) you are eligible to participate in a University of Pennsylvania research study about the effectiveness of an internet-based, self-help, cognitive-behavioral intervention with minimal therapist contact.  There is no cost for participation.  The program takes six weeks to complete.  If you think you might be interested, please visit our website to learn more about this opportunity.

Hey Everyone,
I'm not sure how many of you have participated in this.... I have. It's actually pretty cool because the research is done on a weekly basis (for 6 weeks). You document your symptoms and then report back once a week, and then each week you get some helpful tips for managing your IBS.
AND, I got a $5 gift certificate to Amazon.com for participating.
Good stuff!

They accepted me and for the next 6 weeks I am in the no treatment group. Fine by me. Just fill out questionaires, so far. No big deal. :)
