Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

What is

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a syndrome characterised by gastrointestinal symptoms and changes in bowel habits. It is a chronic condition that can significantly impact one's quality of life. However the reason why you may be experiencing these symptoms is vast and needs to be found. There is not a one-size fits all approach to IBS.

Symptoms

  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Bloating and gas
  • Diarrhoea, constipation, or alternating between both
  • Mucus or blood in the stool
  • Feeling of incomplete bowel movement

Treatment options

When treating IBS, your practitioner will investigate the possible causes first and foremost. We will work to eliminate possible triggers and then take a nutritional approach to healing the gut from the intestinal lining, the nervous system and immune system associated with the gut, the microbiome diversity and bowel motility. 

  • Dietary modifications 
  • Nutritional supplementation to rebuild the gut
  • Herbal medicine to soothe symptoms and improve the guts function
  • Stress management techniques if this is a factor

By addressing the root causes of IBS and supporting the body's natural healing mechanisms, naturopathic approaches can provide effective relief that's lasting and doesn't need to lock you into an overly restrictive diet for the rest of your life.
