Do you want to be a part of my latest groundbreaking research?

If you would like to be a part of my latest groundbreaking research on the influence of the mind on the body in IBD (Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis) you are very welcome to contact me to be considered:
(This link has now been removed - a further study will be carried out later in the year).

I am recruiting 2 groups - one group of people who have mild to moderate active disease and one group who has no history of Crohn's disease or Colitis. In your email subject line please tell me which group you belong to (IBD or No IBD) and the email address to which you would like me to send you the questionnaire to participate in the research.
I look forward to hearing from you! (No pain or invasive procedures involved, it will only take an hour at most and you can do this in the safety of your own home). I am looking for about 200 people for each group in order for this to go ahead. Thank you!
