How To Reverse And Cure Irritable Bowel Syndrome Within Days

Thank you for tuning into this tutorial today.This tutorial is going to be a comprehensive tutorial about irritable bowel syndrome. Irritablebowel syndrome is a condition that I've seen now for almost 30 years in the , a long,long time. It's quite a common complaint that affects probably between 10 to 15 percentof the population in the western world at any given time.It's not uncommon to get patients in with functional bowel disturbances. In fact, theyprobably make up about 10 percent of what a medical practitioner would see in his orher at any given time and probably account for about 50 percent of all the casesthat a gastroenterologist or bowel specialist

would see. Let's just first look at the signs and symptomsthat encompass irritable bowel syndrome. The typical signs and symptoms that we would seewould be bloating and gas. There could be all sorts of uncomfortable sensations in thegut. There could be spasms or cramping sensations, constipation and diarrhea, particularly alternatingconstipation and diarrhea, are common with irritable bowel syndrome. What's not common, however, is to see a patientwho's bleeding from the bowel or have anemia, low iron counts, or would have fevers. Sweatsat night. Those sorts of things that don't

tend to really be irritable bowel syndrome.I would refer you go to a gastroenterologist for scoping because you may have inflammatorybowel syndrome, which is a separate complaint. That's an autoimmune disease. It's less commonthan irritable bowel syndrome, but we still see it in the quite regularly, particularlyulcerative colitis, which would be the feature of another entire tutorial that I'll do at somestage. It's interesting when I went to America in2003 for some training, I heard Alan Gaby speaking. Alan Gaby is a past presidentof the American Holistic Medical Association, and Gaby calls IBS a quot;garbage can diagnosis.quot;Garbage can diagnosis is a condition he believes

is the one where the s throw peoplein a rubbish tin and hope that someone else will take it away because they're in the quot;toohardquot; basket. Functional complaints like adrenal fatigue, Candida diagnosis, irritable bowelsyndrome; these are what Gaby calls a garbage can diagnosis. I would tend to agree because it's very easyto see a patient in a fiveminute time slot and then say to the patient, quot;Well, we'llrun all the tests. But if we can't find anything, we might give you an antidepressant. Or ifit's irritable bowel syndrome (which I see a lot), we'll just put you on a fiber supplement.quot;So that's a bit of a cop out because western

medical s don't tend to really be interestedin looking at causes of conditions. They'd rather treat the symptoms that are presenting.Which is really unfortunate for the patient because if a patient has had a functionalbowel complaint for many years, that can lead to anxiety and depression. And not only that,if a functional bowel complaint goes on for a long, long period of time, that can evenlead to diseases in its own right, many types of conditions. Let's now explore the four main causes thatI would tend to see a lot with irritable bowel syndrome. I'm just going to grab my note sheethere. The common ones I would see with patients

would be allergies. Allergies are quite common.We'll go into that in a minute. Bugs, all kinds of bugs patients can present with, whichcan often cause IBS. We're looking at Candida or parasites, small intestinal bowel overgrowth.Stress is a really big one. Stress is often not spoken about with the bowel. And intolerances.Let's clearly understand that food intolerances and food allergies are two entirely differentthings. People often get them confused. Allergies are associated with the immune system. Andthe common allergies I would see with IBS would be dairy allergies, probably numberone. Hyman on YouTube, and many other s,believe that gluten's the big one, but I don't


For patients with irritable bowel syndrome,or IBS, diet can be a huge factor when it comes to controlling the symptoms. IBS isa common disorder that affects the large intestine, or the colon. IBS is a chronic condition thatcommonly causes cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation. According to aboutibs ,about 1 out of every 10 people suffer from IBS. For some patients, a quot;low FODMAPquot; dietmay offer significant relief! FODMAPs are a type of carb, but it isn't your typicallowcarb diet. Lawrence Schiller, MD, Gastroenterologist at Baylor University MedicalCenter at Dallas gives us more detail on what FODMAP really is. FODMAP stands for FermentableOligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides

and Polyols. Those are all different kindsof chemicals that are basically carbohydrates found in foods. The reason that they are importantis because they're hard carbohydrates for us to digest and absorb and so we have tobe selective when we eat them. The idea behind this diet is to reduce the poorly absorbablecomponents of the diet and substitute instead with foods that contain carbohydrates thatare easier to digest and absorb. FODMAPS are a collection of poorly absorbed simple andcomplex sugars that are found in a variety of fruits and vegetables and also in milkand wheat. People are affected by varying degrees depending on how much of those foodsthey eat and what their digestive capabilities

are. Some people are better are digestingfoods than others. For instance, fructose, which is one of the monosaccharides whichis a problem in the FODMAP realm is fruit sugar thats present in many of the sweet fruitsthat we eat and it will cause problems. For most people, they don't encounter enough fructosein their diet to have problem from it. But if you have excessive amounts of fructosefor instance if you have a lot of processed foods that's sweetened with high fructosecorn syrup you can develop a lot of gas from thatquot;Apples happen to have a lot of fructosein them which makes them a high FODMAP food. Instead of grabbing an apple when you're hungry,grab a banana instead. The low FODMAP diet

can be tailored to meet an individual'slifestyle and preferences. Following the low FODMAP approach does not cure IBS or otherdigestive issues, but allows successful drugfree management of symptoms through diet in manypatients. So be sure to consult with your and dietician to learn more about alow FODMAP diet and if it is right for you. For dailyRx, I'm Shelby Cullinan.
