Abstract

Psychosomatic medical treatment is not a treatment that only specialists can do. On psychosomatic approach for IBS patients, it is important to understand not only IBS symptoms but also IBS patients themselves and their psychosocial factors. Not a few serious IBS patients have aspects of anxiety and depression. It needs psychosomatic approach that combined with drugs and simple psychotherapy to treat them. In treating IBS patients, we should first consider not only organic or functional mechanism of their symptoms but also the psychosocial meaning of them.
