SIBO and Irritable Bowel Syndrome - IBS
After successfully treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for almost 20 years, I can confidently say that there is no need for anyone to simply live with the symptoms of IBS and SIBO.
Although IBS is not immediately life threatening, it is and can be extremely uncomfortable to live with the ongoing symptoms of alternating diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, cramping and gassiness. Many patients become disillusioned after scopes and scans find nothing wrong. This is the case because IBS is not an anatomical disorder, it is a physiological or functional disorder. A colonoscopy, endoscopy, x-ray, CT scan or ultrasound cannot detect an imbalance in the flora (bacteria) of the colon, nor can it detect an adverse food reaction that may be occurring or a deficiency in pancreatic enzymes or other important digestive elements. While these are good tests and good to have done in order to rule out more serious diseases, they often end up as the end of the road for IBS patients who are told that there is nothing wrong with them.
IBS can be treated, healed and permanently resolved and the digestive system strengthened to function easily without symptoms.
So many of our patients come to us after years of Irritable Bowel symptoms including cramping stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gassy stools and irregular bowels.
Many have been told that there is no cure for their IBS and have been searching on their own for a solution for their uncomfortable symptoms.
Have you tried a complicated diets like The Elimination Diet, GAPS or the FODMAP Diet?
While these diets can provide some help in decreasing symptoms, they are challenging and difficult to follow. These diets and intolerances are a sign of what is going on, but they are NOT necessary for treating and resolving IBS.
There is a solution
In most cases, these annoying symptoms can be relieved very quickly when we run functional medicine tests to find out if there are specific foods, deficiencies or hidden infections causing the IBS that are not tested for in conventional labs. We can then go on to heal the digestive system and desensitize to any food triggers using LDA immunotherapy so that symptoms permanently resolve and the digestion becomes strong enough to tolerate any diet.
How do I know this?
I have been working with IBS patients as my primary focus for almost 20 years and have developed an individualized program of symptoms relief, resolution and recovery. At Specialty Natural Medicine we have resolved permanently hundreds of IBS patient’s symptoms, usually in a very short period of time.
Ultimately, there is a lot of hope for the treatment and resolution of IBS. Understand that the symptoms of IBS are a call from the body for help because something is irritating it or is deficient. By restoring the natural balance to the body, IBS patients can become symptom free and be stronger for it.
