Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is characterised by cramping pain, constipation and/or diarrhoea, bloating, gas, fatigue and anxiety or depression. It can seriously affect your ability to function at work, attend social activities and even do everyday tasks such as shopping, due to the need to be near your own safe and comfortable bathroom. This is a serious condition that needs to be properly resolved in order to lead a normal life. Treating the symptoms of IBS simply won’t do. We need to know what has caused your condition so that it can be treated properly.
There are some great stool tests that you can do in the comfort of your own home and the results will be available in a couple of weeks. The test identifies immune and digestive markers as well as pathogenic bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. It also alerts you to any deficiencies in beneficial bacterial species.
Armed with this knowledge we can eliminate the bad microbes, repair the leaky gut and re-inoculate the gut with healthy bacteria. This will help to restore the normal function of your gut, improve your immune system and improve neurotransmitter synthesis, thus reducing anxiety. This can be life changing and your gut will love you for it.
