Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome and do I have it?
Also known as IBS, irritable bowel syndrome is a gastrointestinal disorder commonly associated with discomfort of the large intestine.
Common symptoms can be diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloat, cramping, as well as, all of them at once.
- Gas and Bloat
- All of the above
According to Nadiya Melnky DAOM, Lac, IBS is a result of a system imbalance, possibly neural (the brain-gut relationship), which can prevent our body from functioning smoothly.
Leading causes can range from anxiety, depression, pathogens, as well as, poor diet and poor gut lining integrity.
While some patients exhibit visceral hypersensitivity to certain foods, stress, and pathogens, over exposure to pharmaceuticals can also effect our gut negatively.
If these symptoms sounds familiar, you may have IBS.
But more importantly, what can you do about it?
Quite possibly, a rinsing of your colon with a colonic might be the best way to begin.
Because removing meds, pathogens (like bad bacteria or worse, a parasite), overgrowth of fungus, toxic chemicals, air contaminates and food additives, that end up in the colon, can only be positive.
That said one must also consider other factors such as stress and the foods we eat.
If you live a high stress lifestyle, you may want to consider what takes place when you do, such as high cortisol levels, the fight-or-flight hormone, which long term suppresses your immune system.
And 80% of your immune system is in your gut.
So stop unsetting your gut biome and consider the importance of all the organisms living there designed to help you.
Things that emotionally upset you, also upset the gut biome, as well as meds, fast-food, sugar, gluten, food additives and chemicals, so remove, replace and replenish.
