Cat Health Care Tips How to Manage a Cats Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Let's talk about managing your cat with inflammatorybowel syndrome, or IBS. IBS is quite common in cats actually. They can react to foods,environment, all sorts of things, and and the underlying cause sometimes is not known.But the end result can be a cat with chronic vomiting, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, thingsof that nature. IBS has to be diagnosed by your veterinarian first, and once that's diagnosedthere are certain things that can be helped, or given to help IBS in cats. For one, antiinflammatoriescan help; either orally or by injection, over time, and not every cat requires somethinglike that. So that's one method of treating IBS. Number two is going to be dietary management.IBS cats never need to get lots of treats,
lots of different foods, things like that.Basically, IBS cats need to go on a hypoallergenic, or special foods that are die are are basicallydesigned to to have the body not recognize their proteins as well. And what I mean bythat is it's it's sort of like having an allergy. If your body can't recognize a protein thatyou're allergic to, then you're better off, and not going to react to that. So, your veterinarianshould help you also manage IBS, because it is a chronic condition.
How to Treat IBS Naturally
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this training tutorial, I'm going to talk to you about IBS natural treatmentsand the IBS diet. And IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and I'm going to go throughthe four steps, specifically including diet, what foods not to eat, supplements and lifestyleon how you can heal IBS syndrome. And I've worked with thousands of patients who havestruggled with IBS and laid out natural treatment plans for them, and I've seen them overcomeit. So I know you can as well, if you're a person or have a family member strugglingwith this condition. So first let's start off talking about whatfoods you have to stay away from if you have
IBS. Number one is going to be gluten. Ifyou are consuming gluten, that inflammatory protein and grain products that can causeIBS and I recommend for my patients with IBS at the start, for them to stay away from allgrain products, especially wheat products, but all grains to start. Now, later on aboutthree to nine months into care, sometimes they can add in some sprouted grains or sourdoughgrains. But from the start, that first three months, going completely grainfree is important. Also staying away from casein or conventionaldairy products. Lactose, the sugar in dairy, in casein, can be problematic. Now doing kefiron the other hand, can be greatly beneficial
or a fermented dairy product, but regulardairy products, especially milk, can be absolutely destructive for IBS. Some of the other things you want to be carefulof and stay away from with IBS are pretty obvious, hydrogenated oils. Those cause intestinalinflammation. Also, raw foods. That's right. Salads, raw fruits and vegetables and rawfruits can really damage the gut if you have IBS. So you really only want to be consumingcooked foods. Also, stay away from cold foods. Ice water, ice cream, anything that's coldis actually hard on the digestive system. Then of course, any processed food, refinedfood, packaged food, get those out of the
diet if you have IBS. Now, here are the top healing foods for IBSor the IBS diet. On the IBS diet you want to consume foods that really nourish the colonas well as nourish the spleen. The first category is going to be white immune boosting foods.So again, white foods, think cauliflower, onions and garlic. Cauliflower steamed isvery easy to digest. Garlic and onions when they're well cooked are great for killingoff bad bacteria in the gut, and also have immune boosting benefits. The other group of foods is going to be foodsthat nourish the spleen and that is especially
going to be squashes. Things like butternutsquash, sweet potatoes in some instances, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, but doingsquash is very nourishing to the spleen and to the colon as well. And then in generaldoing a lot of bone broth soup. Bone broth contains amino acids, proline and glycine,which make up collagen which helps to repair and heal the intestinal lining. So bone brothshould be the number one super food you consume to help heal IBS. On an IBS diet, the perfect meal is whereyou get out a Crock Pot, you put in some organic meat, whether that's beef or chicken. Thenyou're going to add in bones, you're going
to do the broth itself along with the organicmeat and then also vegetables, things like squash in there, celery and carrots are great.Onions are great in there. But doing a bone broth soup for most of your meals is one ofthe fastest ways to help you heal from IBS and a great part of an IBS diet. Step 3 in healing IBS is taking the rightsupplements. I recommend number one, to get a quality probiotic supplement into your dietand the problem is 90% of most probiotic supplements today are dead by the time you take them.So take a live probiotic supplement. They contain several things. Number one, againgood quality probiotics like lactobacillus

and potentially lose my life like I did whenI had spinal meningitis many years ago. I found basically a plantbased fruit and vegetablebased diet, and I've been healthy ever since, and we have a guest, Annette Davidson on theshow today because she also had a health challenge, and I want her to share her story with youguys because I know many of you guys may also have the challenge she has or something similar,so you can learn what may be able to help you so, Annette, what kind of health challengedid you haveé Well I had Crohn's Disease, and had severeissues with digesting anything, and very big difficulties with constipation and inflammatoryintestines.
Cool, so Crohn's Disease, is that similarto colitis or IBD, irritable bowel disease or are they all related or similaréYes they are related, and especially like colitis and Crohn's, almost the same, it'sa little bit different, but mostly location in the gut, and it's inflammatory boweldisease both of them. So that must be very uncomfortable becauseyou're just constantly going to the bathroom all the time, or what happened to youéWell I didn't go to the bathroom at all was my issue, so I was really bloated andI woke up in the morning totally puffy in my face and I was really, really tired andoften shaky because I couldn't eat and digest
my food and I got really toxic and the pHgets really acidic too in the body, so it's, I was so, so tired all the time, and didn'thave energy to do anything, it was horrible. So how long did you have this conditionéMore than 23 years. So you lived this with this for 23, you reallycouldn't go to the bathroom, and didn't have a lot of energyéYes, that's how I was. So you must have went to the right,didn't they help you out and fix you upé No, in the beginning they didn't say anythingat all, and they couldn't find anything that was wrong with me, but I could feel thatsomething was really wrong, and I searched,
you know everything like homeopathy, reflexology,acupuncture, I tried everything and all kinds of herbs, and everything, and nothing helped,and I was even ized actually one time because my candida, I got so bad so I waslying in a single room at the with a fan between my legs, it was really horrible.And still it didn't do anything. And then after a couple of years they actually foundout that it was Crohn's, that I was inflamed in my small intestine and also in the colon,and I decided to do surgery, so they did surgery and they said â€œNow everything will be fine,â€�but still it wasn't in the whole body, it's not just in one spot so it didn't help atall, it still continued, the same issue.
Wow, so you know I know some people out therewe can't give medical advice here, but you went to the s again and they said â€œWe'regoing to cut out part of you, and it's going to help,â€� would you go into the surgeryagainé No, never. And I didn't want to do it thattime either, but I couldn't find any other solution, I tried everything as far as I knewat that point, and some people say â€œJust do it,â€� you know and then we can work onit after that. And I did it, but it didn't help. They took this much out of my smallintestine and colon, and they put it together again.Yeah I mean, for me personally, like I don't
