Irritable Bowel SyndromeAre one of the 1 in 10 Aussies living with IBS?
IBS - It can be healed!
Have you been told you have IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome? After all you been though – the pain, bloating, nausea, hot sweats, sickness, constipation, diarrhea and explosive episodes – you’re told “it’s just IBS, you need to learn to live with it”. Me too! I’m Cass, Naturopath & Owner of Health Haven. In my early 20’s I got this exact diagnosis! How was I going to live with this? How was my doctor unable to fix this for me?
Having been told you have IBS / irritable bowel syndrome, it’s quite depressing! Knowing how sick you are, how debilitating the condition is, yet no one seems able to help. At Health Haven we offer tailored programs in a step-by-step approach, healing and repairing your gut so it can function as well as it once did.
Everyone’s IBS is different, but mine was extremely severe. Yet here I am, living a normal life. Do I have to be careful of certain foods? For sure! Am I careful with what I eat? Yep! But they’re small prices to pay for being able to have a meal out with friends…without running off to find a public toilet!
IBS doesn’t have to be your “normal”… let me help you to get your digestive health back too!
IBS, why me?
Short answer – who knows?! But, there is always a trigger, be it a parasite, bacterial infection, viral load, medications, food triggers or extreme stress. There is ALWAYS a trigger, and I WILL find it. It’s the key to unlocking your IBS and getting your health back.
Can we fix it?
Doctors will say “no”…but that just not true! It will take time but you will be able to eat normally again, enjoy going out with friends, be able to go to a restaurant without googling the nearest loo first! YOu may have a couple of food triggers that persist, but that’s ok, we’d rather skip a few foods and be well, than live with IBS!
So what is IBS? Irritable Bowel Syndrome varies for everyone and may include:
- recurrent episodes of diarrhea and constipation
- bloating, cramping, abdominal pain
- nausea, sweating, feeling sick or even vomiting on occassions
- explosive bowel motions
- pain & nausea tend to be relieved by going to the toilet
- depression / anxiety tend to accompany the condition
