Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Symptoms, Causes & Natural Remedies
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is an umbrella term describing a set of symptoms that baffles patients and healthcare providers alike. IBS is the most common of all gastrointestinal problems, is far more prevalent among women, and generally occurs in those aged between 25 - 45. However as IBS is a set of symptoms rather than an explanation of what’s causing the problem, it tends to be difficult to treat. There is no single known cause and conventional treatments tend to focus singularly on symptom relief.
Ranging from quite mild to severe, symptoms often intefere with normal daily life for those with IBS, and everyday activities such as eating out at a restaurant can become a daunting prospect!
Functional medicine, as with other complex health problems, can help with IBS. It’s crucial with IBS to identify and work on the root cause(s) and at the same time use natural symptom relief to ensure any improvements aren’t just temporary, but long lasting.
So, don’t put up with unwanted symptoms of IBS, take action and improve your gut health for good!
