Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome also know as mucous colitis or spastic colon has increased dramatically over the past ten years. Statistic’s reveal that one in six people in USA suffer from some symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. The main symptoms can range anywhere from mild to severe and appear at any age.

They are intitally constipation with straining or watery diarrhoea, cramping pains in lower abdomen and often pains passing stool.

Muscular contarctions in the colon and ileum can be spasmodic and no reason for it can be detected by X rays or endoscopy.There are actually no medical tests to diagnose IBS.  The debilitating symptoms do make a person feel insecure as diarrhoea can be uncontrollable and unpredictable.

There can be a psycological basis to IBS and during times of stress the nerves connected to the bowel are more active causing an increase in sensativity in the bowel. More often a contribution to IBS are food allergies, and occasionally the symptoms are triggered  by bowel infections or parasites.

The hOmeopathic approach to irritable bowel syndrome is to strengtyhen the individuals constitutiion and reduce the susceptability. To at the same time address any psycological imbalances or reactions to stress.

Diet must also be considered. The main dietry culprits seems to be wheat products. This can also include organic wheat wholegrain wheat and spelt.. That means stopping whaet based breads, breakfast cerals and wheat pastas. Fortunatly bt demand many alternatives now exist for our convielce. Gluten free products help most people here as does reducung dairy produce.

If these are diligently replaced with healthier alternatives we mostly see within a few weeks a huge lessening of symptoms.

Herbal medicine and homeopathy both work well to reduce inflammations, pain and bowel insecurity whilst healing takes place
