Irritable Bowel Syndrome Info
“The tuba is certainly the most intestinal of instruments, the very lower bowel of music.”
Peter De Vries
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS, alternatively referred to as a “spastic colon” disease) is an illness characterised by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and inconsistent of bowel habits. As a functional bowel disorder, IBS is strongly linked to overactive nervous system and adrenals in response to ongoing stress.
Diarrhoea and/or constipation usually alternate in IBS. Several different health conditions may present themselves as IBS, including coeliac disease, fructose mal-absorption, mild infections, parasitic infections, several inflammatory bowel diseases, bile acid mal-absorption, functional chronic constipation, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and chronic functional abdominal pain.
The primary symptoms of IBS are abdominal pain and discomfort together with frequent diarrhoea or constipation and a change in bowel habits. There may also be urgency for bowel movements, a feeling of incomplete evacuation, bloating, or abdominal distension.
In some cases, the symptoms are relieved by bowel movements. People with IBS, more commonly than others, have gastro-oesophageal reflux, symptoms relating to the genitourinary system, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, backache and psychiatric symptoms such as depression and anxiety.
Treatments for IBS aim to both relieve symptoms and resolve the underlying stressors. Identifying food allergies or intolerances, dietary changes, restoring healthy body biochemistry, therapy or counselling for emotional and psychological issues and flower essence remedies are all good options to include in a treatment plan. The nervous system, adrenals, liver and gastrointestinal tract all need medicinal herbs, supportive minerals and other nutrients to help relax and balance this hypersensitive system. There are natural health remedies which may help alleviate the symptoms of IBS. Most of these are based on balancing the system with herbs, nutrients and minerals that may be lacking.
I have been buying this every month for my wife on our doctor's recommendation. But was very pleased to see the 90 capsule bottle for a very cheap price. It is good for the problems my wife has.
Remarkable reduction in symptoms of chronic IBD.
My research in to this product prior to purchase indicated that it was much more likely to assist with Irritable Bowel Syndrome than Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I suffered from IBD and not IBS, but thought it might be worth a try. With persistence, the results have been very positive. From at least several bouts a month lasting days at a time I am now only experiencing occasional (say once every two months) milder bouts lasting a day or two at most. My bowels are more regular and other digestive difficulties diminished. I take one capsule first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with a large drink, six days a week. (Sunday is a rest day.) I am on my fourth large bottle now and will try an extended break soon to see if the results hold.
Good for wind!
I find this product works really well for abdominal cramps and lower bowel pain. Good for occasional IBS symptoms. Stronger than peppermint tea!
