Rumination in humans is a disorder of the gut-brain interaction affecting three percent of people worldwide. It's characterised by recurrent regurgitation without associated retching or significant nausea. Behavioural therapies are proved to be effective, with the potential to be successful at the primary care level.

Also present is Dr Dipesh Vasant, a Consultant Gastroenterology and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester, with a specialist interest in neurogastroenterology and motility disorders.
