Irritable Bowel SyndromeAre one of the 1 in 10 Aussies living with IBS?
IBS - There are Answers!
Having been told you have IBS / irritable bowel syndrome, it’s quite depressing! The dr generally tells you it’s “just something you have to deal with” and “you’ve got it for life”. I know…because that was me. My IBS was actually one of the reasons I became a naturopath. I knew IBS wasn’t normal, I knew there was answers, I just had to find them!
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? Definately! 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!
I can get YOUR normal back – Let me help you…
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”…I will say “yes”, within reason. In my experience your digestive system will always be a little sensitive after IBS, you’ll need to be mindful of your food triggers in future. But that’s ok, we’d rather skip a few foods and be well, than live with the alternative!
So what is IBS? IBS is NOT blood in the bowel motions, so if that’s you, please see your doctor straight away. IBS varies for everyone and may include:
- recurrent episodes of diarrhea and consipation
- bloating, cramping, abdominal pain
- nausea, sweating, feeling sick
- explosive diarrhea
- pain & nausea tend to be relieved by going to the toilet
- depression / anxiety
