IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

IBS is a common disorder that results from change in digestive function.  Symptoms can range from mildly irritating to debilitating.

Causes are largely unknown but there are a variety of triggers and every individual experiences IBS differently.

Diagnosis is made by ruling out other illnesses that would cause change in the physical structure of the digestive system (eg coeliac disease).

Symptoms

  • Pain, abdominal distention and tenderness
  • Changes in bowel habits – diarrhoea and/or constipation
  • Gas, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite
  • Fatigue

upset stomach

Treatment

Naturopathic treatment is the most effective intervention for IBS.  The gentle, holistic treatment plan includes:

  • Identifying an individual’s triggers
  • Dietary modification
  • Stress management
  • Monitoring of gut health
  • Herbal and supplementary support
