IBS, which stands for irritable bowel syndrome, is as rubbish as it sounds. So many foods to avoid for
fear of cramps, and toilet breaks. Not being able to eat anything too rich or spicy and constantly having
to watch what you eat is such a worry. Going out for meals at a restaurant or even buying a sandwich from your local cafe becomes a nightmare for those that suffer from IBS. It really is an awful disorder.
- Worldwide it’s estimated that 10-15% of the population has IBS.
- The exact cause of IBS is not known. Symptoms may result from a disturbance in the way the gut, brain, and nervous system interact. This can cause changes in normal bowel movement and sensation.
- Most persons with IBS are under the age of 50. But many older adults suffer as well.
Treatments to help ease symptoms of IBS
Not a lot of people know, however, that there are ways to help with the symptoms and discomfort associated with IBS. Treatments that are provided by the Norfolk Clinic. For example: have you ever heard of Medical Herbalism? it refers to the use of plant seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, and flowers in a medicinal way. Probably one of the oldest medicinal practices in the world, herbalism can be used to treat a variety of ailments, including IBS. This is because it treats the organ systems and helps the body to repair and heal itself.
If you’re more of a pleasant tasting tablet-based remedy kind of person, maybe you should look into Homeopathy. This treatment works on a “like cures like” basis that means that things that could cause symptoms in healthy people, can also cure unwell people of symptoms of their illness or ailment. Homeopathy is an extremely personalised treatment, where the professional will build an entire picture of you, your illness/ailment(s), and your medical history, in order to prescribe something that directly treats you. Sounds kind of scary, we know, but this treatment is completely safe, and as a result, can be used by people of all ages and conditions, including pregnant women.
