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.

Product Reviews

  • Great product

    star

    Had dreadful tummy problems, bloating, loose stools, sometime couldn’t go at all! Almost reluctant to even go away on holiday as a change of diet would be a real drama. I’ve taken these once a day, in the morning for months now and everything’s almost all gone. Can go out for dinner, eat what I want (within reason) no real issues anymore. I’m willing to stay on these for life simply to get some freedom. Would recommend for any tummy/bowel upsets.

    I recently bought this product to help with IBS. It is fantastic and it really helps to ease discomfort. I started taking it 2-3 times a day and am now just taking it once a day for maintenance. I will definitely be ordering another bottle!

    I have suffered from constipation all my life. I eat well, drink lots of water and do all the right things but nothing has ever worked. Having read the reviews of this product I purchased some LBS a couple of weeks ago. I would have to say it is so far life changing! It is the most wonderful thing to have a normal bowel movement every day!!! I am now only taking 1 tablet a day and it is working. I look forward to using LBS when I next travel as it is normally a nightmare for me being unable to move my bowels from the time I get on the plane until I get home. You can't really take normal laxatives when travelling as you need to be near a toilet all day but with LBS I just have one normal movement a day. Thank you Nature's Sunshine!!!!
