Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome accounts for up to 70 percent of gastrointestinal complaints seen in general medical practice. IBS is a digestive disorder that manifests with cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and alternating between constipation and diarrhea. It occurs more often in women than in men, and typically starts before the age of 35 in 50 percent of the population. It is estimated that one in five Americans have symptoms of IBS, making it one of the most common disorders.

At times, IBS sufferers frequently have straining and cramping when trying to have a bowel movement but often they are able to eliminate only a small amount. If they are able to have a bowel movement, it can have mucus in it. Some people with IBS experience diarrhea, which is frequent, loose, watery stools. With IBS, along with the diarrhea, there is frequently a feeling of an urgent and uncontrollable need to have a bowel movement.

Many times those with IBS find that their symptoms lessen for a few months and then return in a never-ending cycle. Others have a constant worsening of symptoms over time or alternate between constipation and diarrhea. in addition, many with IBS feel the need to have a bowel movement immediately after they’ve already had one.

IBS will heal naturally when using a holistic approach. Medication and surgery are not required when one treats the body as a whole instead of focusing on the individual parts like the bowel.

In the order of importance, these systems must be balanced so to heal the source or cause of irritable bowel syndrome instead of treating the effects with medication that never heals the condition, only temporarily patches it up. Remember medications have between 7-500 side effects. This means they can negatively affect this many systems, organs, gland and tissues. Why would you do something that can potentially do so much harm? To heal IBS, we must heal the systems of the body and state of mind.

In closing, it is important to understand that irritable bowel syndrome and proper IBS Treatment have the objective to heal the whole body and mind naturally.
