Living With Irritable Bowel Syndrome

A Natural Approach To Health


Living With Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I had a question the other day about irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS.

This is a complex condition.

The pattern of symptoms is different for everyone.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder of the intestines.

It causes belly pain, cramping or bloating, and diarrhea or constipation.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a long-term problem, but there are things you can do to lessen your symptoms.

Your symptoms may be worse or better from day to day, but your IBS will not get worse over time.

IBS doesn’t cause more serious diseases.

It’s not clear what causes irritable bowel syndrome, and the cause may be different for different people.

Some ideas for what causes IBS include problems with the way signals are sent between your brain and your digestive tract, problems digesting certain foods, and stress or anxiety.

People with IBS may have extremely sensitive intestines or problems with the way the muscles of the intestines move.

For some people with IBS, certain foods, stress, hormonal changes, and some antibiotics may trigger pain and symptoms.

The main symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are belly pain with constipation or diarrhea.

Other common symptoms are bloating, mucus in your stools, or a feeling that you haven’t completely emptied your bowels.

Many people with IBS go back and forth between having constipation and having diarrhea.

For most people, one of these happens more often than the other.

IBS is very common.

Most people’s symptoms are so mild they never see a doctor for treatment.

But some people may have troublesome symptoms, especially stomach cramps, bloating and diarrhea.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a long-term condition, but there are things you can do to manage your symptoms.

Treatment usually includes making changes in your diet and lifestyle, like avoiding foods that trigger your symptoms, getting regular exercise, and managing your stress.

To deal with irritable bowel syndrome it’s important to:

*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to keep hydrated.

*Optiflora may be taken after each bout of diarrhea to replenish the “good” bacteria.

*Food sensitivities/allergies and diet must investigated and addressed.

*Become educated on the gluten connection to this issue.

*Avoid all dairy.

*Avoid sugars, grains, carbs, soda pop, alcohol, caffeine, processed products.

*May be beneficial to lightly steam veggies.

*Increase Omega-3 fats intake.

*Consider a liver, gallbladder and/or colon cleanse.

*Exercise, stress and relaxation techniques.


It’s essential to use:  Vita-Lea, Protein, Optiflora (1 dose after each major bowel movement), Garlic, Herb-Lax, DTX.

It’s important to use:  Alfalfa, B-Complex, Vitamin D, Performance (particularly if severe diarrhea).

It’s beneficial to use:  Vitamin C, Stomach Soothing Complex, Immunity Formula.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you should publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people do
    not talk about these issues. To the next! Cheers!!
