Drs. Plotnikoff and Weisberg are clinicians who, for more than 20 years each, have served people struggling with chronic pain and multidimensional illness. They are the doctors to whom other doctors refer their toughest patients. They ask different questions. And they listen intently for opportunities to awaken a patient’s inner doctor. And they see great results.
In 2009, they published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) a challenge to their professional colleagues. They simply asked, why the heavy emphasis on pharmaceutical treatments for irritable bowel syndrome? Their shared philosophy: Not “a pill for every ill” but “skills before pills.”
They took their own challenge seriously. From this, Trust Your Gut was born.
