Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects some 36 million people in the United States. This accounts for more than 2 million prescriptions and 35,000 hospitalizations each year. It is also the second highest cause of work absenteeism after the common cold. Just as remarkable is the fact that effective, permanent irritable bowel solutions seem elusive to most people and most doctors. But Natural Irritable Bowel Solutions that actually get to the ROOT CAUSES of digestive distress do exist – IF you look in the right places!
Irritable Bowel Syndrome – A Modern Plague
Oftentimes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a diagnosis given by doctors when they don’t know what else you have. It has puzzled medical professionals and researchers who have posed several theories about its origins.
Do You Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Common signs and symptoms include frequent:
Abdominal discomfort and / or pain
Spastic colon (spastic contractions of the colon)
To many physicians, if you’re having the symptoms, but it’s not Crohn’s Disease, and it’s not Inflammatory Bowel Disease, then it must be IBS.
But IBS, even though it can cause debilitating pain, is a functional bowel disorder. In other words, there are no significant physical conditions that contribute to the problem; hence it’s a functional disease.
Unfortunately, giving it a label doesn’t answer the questions like WHERE did it come from, WHAT are the causes, WHY did I get it, and WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
One thing I can tell you for sure – it’s not just about following some magic diet, or taking some new prescription.
If it was that easy to feel better, or if you already knew what to eat and the best way to eliminate your IBS symptoms, you probably wouldn’t be reading this right now. The truth is, it’s not just one thing that caused your IBS, and trying to practice the one drug for one problem approach is not going to slow down, reverse or heal your condition.
The good news is that once you address the root cause, your body can and will heal and you’ll be feeling and functioning better soon!
Discovering and addressing the root cause takes time, experience and specialized knowledge.
