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
Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS and What Tests You Should Get
Kenneth Falchukgt;gt;gt; Irritable bowel syndromeis the word points to it, is a syndrome, it is a composite of complaints that patientshave that effect the GI tract. It is not something that we could immediately say is caused byan infection or is caused by a structural change in the bowel. So therefore the physician who evaluates thepatient with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) has to pay attention to the types of symptoms,when they occuré How frequent is your trigger factor, has to evaluate his patient for thepossibility of other conditions and that is where we bring in the criteria of or the charactersof what we call reg flags.
So irritable bowel syndrome is a combinationof symptoms that the patient mentions to the treating evaluating physician that consistsof either pain with or without a change in bowel habit such as diarrhea, constipation,or a variable pattern, a mixture of both diarrhea or constipation with bloating with a changein a shape, consistency of they stools, they could be loose, they could be hard, they couldbe like little fragments. Above all, the irritable bowel does not havethe red flags that I mentioned previously, that is the presence of bleeding, very significantrelevant weight loss in a short period of time, no fever, and no vomiting, once we considerthe red flags and if they are not present
in the patient, there are other lab resultsthat we could request to evaluate the patient and exclude something that may be caused byanother illness other than the IBS, the irritable bowel. If a physician requests those labs, they arenot specific. There is no specific blood test to make the diagnosis of an irritable bowel.So what one does when he looks at the lab for help to see if there is anemia, evidenceof bleeding indirectly or directly, a low red cell count, a low iron or something calledferritin, signs of inflammation in the blood. We request a test called Sed rate or CRP thatindirectly look at this aspect.
Other tests may show low protein to suggesta difficult absorption, nutrition, which is not really a main issue when one deals withirritable bowel. So once the red flags are excluded and that the physician is certainabout that, he or she can then say â€œWell I am not yet sure. I need to evaluate my patientproperly.â€� That can be done with xrays such as CAT scan, xray of a small intestine,a barium enema sometimes or proceed to something more specific and definitive, yet somewhatinvasive called a colonoscopy where you look at the lining of the colon. You can take samplesand make sure there is no inflammation. The bottomline is to make sure that thereis no colitis because colitis is treated differently.
It is somewhat of a greater concern to somepatients because it could bleed to serious consequences and disabilities, so it is importantnot to attach diagnosis of IBS, irritable bowel, to someone who may have something thatcan be treated differently and therefore modify their quality of life and outcome. I think that more or less summarizes whatI have been trying to convey about what IBS irritable bowel syndrome is and how to proceedwith a detail specific evaluation of this condition.
Everything You Need To Know About Mens Hair Loss
Hair insecurity is something that a lot of men feel andalmost none talk about. 30% of men suffer fromhair loss by the age of 30. That's a lot of guys. The people I hangout with, nobody talks about hair. They'reuncomfortable with the idea of balding because they expectthat I'm uncomfortable with it. They feel like there's no options at all
They're like whatever, it happens, I'm gonna bald, look at my dad. It was justweighting on my self confidence. I think that we need to downto the root of this problem. I noticed hair lossfor me when I was 27. My wife told me I have a bald spot in the back. When did she tell you,you have a bald spoté
She just told me this last night. To think it's the first timethis is initially addressed, like this is something that is real. I was coming to this tutorial. Self analysis. Don't be scared to take a look at it. I ignored it for a long time. So, I showed you photos of me in college
and you're like oh yeah Ican see it started there and I'm like what, no it didn't. The earlier you discoverit, the better chance you have of preventing it. What's your perception ofhair loss and why it happensé They say it might happenfrom the mothers' father side. False, genetics on both sides. So, you're literally rolling the dice.
Do your proper research. Look at your parents,look at your grandparents. Have you ever done researché I don't think that I have. Why is thaté It's because of that inedibility, nothing that I do is going to stop it. Men suffer from somethingcalled Androgenetic Alopecia.
Men usually bald on topof their crown area, in the frontal lobe to the back. It's kind of like that Friar Tuck look. What you tell me is thatit's testosterone that's blocking the area. David Yes. So, I'm too much of a man,that's the problem here. Oh God, here we go. It's DHT that causes it,
