With Colon Hydrotherapy we can help you with the management of this debilitating condition
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a mixture of abdominal symptoms for which there is no apparent cause.
Symptoms include constipation, diarrhoea, bloating and abdominal pain.
It is the most common condition seen by gastroenterologists and some estimates suggest that as many as one in five adults in the UK have IBS at any one time. IBS is more common in women.
In the UK about 13 per cent of women and 5 per cent of men have IBS.
What are the symptoms of IBS?
IBS symptoms and can start at any age, but are most common in late teenage years or early adulthood.
The four most common symptoms are:
bloating that usually subsides overnight and returns the following day
How is irritable bowel syndrome diagnosed?
The diagnosis is often made on the basis that typical symptoms are present, particularly in younger people.
Chronic functional abdominal pain (CFAP) is the ongoing presence of abdominal pain for which there is no known medical explanation. It is quite similar to, but less common than, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and many of the same treatments for IBS can also be of benefit to those with CFAP. The fundamental difference between IBS and CFAP is that in CFAP, unlike in IBS, there is no change in bowel habits such as constipation or diarrhoea. Bowel dysfunction is a necessary diagnostic criteria of IBS.
CFAP is characterised by chronic pain, with no physical explanation or findings (no structural, infectious, or mechanical causes can be found).
As conventional medicine has no treatment for this often debilitating condition, many people turn to alternative medicine for help.
Here we treat IBS with:
Colonic irrigation can help to remove impacted waste; make passing stool easier, flush out excess mucus, pathogenic flora, and toxins that have built up in your colon over a long time. Removing these toxins and pathogens can go a long way toward helping your body absorb nutrients, improving your general health and energy, and increasing regularity...all necessary aspects of managing IBS symptoms.
The more support given to the colon, the less likely it is that toxins will accumulate again. By cleansing your colon, you'll be helping your body eliminate toxins and pathogens that interfere with digestion.
After cleansing your colon, it is essential to restore a healthy intestinal flora to stop pathogenic bacteria from causing inflammation of the wall of the colon, preventing a new build up of toxic material in your colon. This is particularly true in the case of those with IBS, where other psychosomatic or hereditary factors will tend to make problems reoccur.
We also use Naturopathic nutrition: to improve digestion, reduce discomfort, constipation and diarrhoea; some herbal remedies may me prescribed in combination with a diet and some exercise
Acupuncture: this is often the most effective treatment to reduce stress and pain rapidly, it has good long term effect in making the whole digestive system work better.
