Irritable Bowel Syndrome Nutrition and Cranio-Sacral Threapy news

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, is a gastro-intestinal disorder suffered by an increasing number of people. However, due to its multifactoral aetiology, IBS doesn’t have a single cause or treatment. (3,7). Many people diagnosed with IBS by their GPs are prescribed drugs that treat the symptoms, but unfortunately not the causes. There is, however, a range of non-pharmaceutical solutions that can successfully treat the disorder itself.

The following are typical, defining symptoms of IBS (3):

  • Abdominal pain or rumbling
  • Meteorism  (a bloating sensation often combined with visible distension of the abdomen)
  • Nausea, indigestion and loss of appetite (4)
  • Flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea
  • Abnormal stool characteristics (6)
  • Mucus or slime in the stool (4)
  • The sensation of not empting the bowel properly (4)

 

Often, the intensity of the symptoms is most pronounced in the afternoon or evening. Incomplete or faulty digestion may aggravate the symptoms while defecation or passing flatus may provide some relief. The symptoms may come and go over a period of months (3) to buy the paper to read more about irritable bowel syndrome click here or to make an appointment with me.
