Stress and the link to digestive conditions

Dr. Lewey was interviewed by Susan Rust, for an article titled "Stomach Woes: Digestive disorders -the causes and cures" featured in Nov-Dec 2011 issue of Springs Style magazine. Dr. Lewey was quoted several times in the article including the following quote: "Stress can cause a release of chemicals from the brain that results in a change in signals in the gut,"..."resulting in pain, increased contractions, water secretions, e.g. IBS symptoms...In the right setting of genetics and altered gut flora, various digestive conditions can result - IBS, IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease/Crohn's/ulcerative colitis), celiac/gluten sensitivity, etc." Colorado Springs Style November-December 2011, pages 46-48.
