Just wanted to be sure we were on the same page.

Great suggestion--relaxation exercises, yoga, and relaxation techniques are very good for anxiety, as are hypnotherapy and acupuncture

My ibs has gone.
As you said. Fickle. Do you think these yoga things ie breathing etc can help health ? And anxiety. ??
I've always took the science route. Bloods scans etc ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
They definitely help with anxiety and since anxiety can aggravate IBS they help with IBS too. The tests help your anxiety when they are fine but there's a lot to be said for meditation to keep us healthy

That's good enough for me. So you believe the mind body connection. ?
Before I go. Specialist said next blood work dec. doc says 1 year you seen em what do you think ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

Absolutely I do.

If I were your PCP, I'd say yearly and no more frequently than that.

The specialist has to justify his job

No problem at all with the one glass of wine per night.
