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
Nutrition Weight Loss Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
My name is Christine Marquette and I am aregistered dietitian with Austin Regional and I am going to talk to you aboutsymptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The most common symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndromeor IVF are diarrhea, nausea, constipation, and bloating. However, this is a syndromethat has been associated with other conditions. Often times people with IVS will also experiencedepression or anxiety. Some people with IVS may not actually experience diarrhea, theymay also experience constipation so that is another possible symptom. Other people willhave what is called cyclic IVS meaning that they alternate between days of having diarrheaand days of having constipation. So mainly
with having IVS the typical symptoms startin the digestive area again caused possibly by foods but they could also be caused bystress. They could also be caused by something in the immune system so the way the symptomsactually present themselves will be slightly different in each individual. Often it iscomorbid with other things such as headaches, migraines, some people will experience fibromyalgiaas well. Being a syndrome again that means it has a lot of particular symptoms that canbe comorbid for this particular condition but the most common ones do involve the digestivetract either intestinal cramping, bloating, diarrhea or constipation.
Adrenal Fatigue and IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome
One of the common problems and complaintsand symptoms of adrenal fatigue is the GI tract not being balanced. Irritable bowellikesymptoms with alternating diarrhea and consipation can be experienced, but it is more biasedto constipation. This is usually present in sufferers who also have other motility issuesas other symptoms of adrenal fatigue, so it's usually not a standalone symptom by itself.This is Lam, founder of DrLam . We want to talk about this because it is socommon that people will come in after visiting their , having extensive work ups, includingscoping, and will be told that their gut is quite normal. Yet, from time to time theyfeel that there is a somewhat of a discontent
in the G.I. system. There is a sense thatthe body is unhappy. It is not very steady. Sometimes it will be diarrhea, sometimes itwill be constipation, but as adrenal fatigue stages advance. The general trend is moretoward constipation. The reason why is because as the body slowsdown, the gut motility slows down as a way to conserve energy. So as the gut motilityslows down, the body will automatically go into a constipation mode rather than a diarrheamode. It is interesting because in the situation of adrenal fatigue, oftentimes there willbe constistent constipation but intermitinely it can also be accompied by some diarrhea,especially when a person is under stress,
but this is not all the time like this. Mostof the time it is a mild form of constipation and it does not get better by itself but itdoes get better sometimes with enzymes and it does sometimes get worse with probiotics. Now the use of enemas, etc. in this type ofsituation oftentimes may bring on some relief, but generally speaking it is not for a verylong time. Understanding and looking from afar that this is a body whose G.I. systemis really not very happy even though there is nothing really structurally wrong is animportant symptom to be alert to. There may be an associated bacterial growth, may becandida, there may be a history of H. pylori,
as well as other pathology that was presentbefore or even present now. If you look at the history deep enough you can always findthat there is a long history of some form of irritability although it may have beenvery mild for many years. So, the constipation can get worse with timebut it's not something that comes on overnight. So, the body is not very, very smooth. Theinternal gut system is not well balanced. Leaky gut may be present, there may be a lotof flatulence and bloating. So this is the general picture that you see in a lot of discontent,lots of unsteadiness in the system; it's almost as if the body's gut is very much being assaultedon different fronts, it doesn't know what
to do. So this is the general picture thatyou see and if you put that together with the various other symptoms of adrenal fatigue,and especially with a negative workup, then you should be putting this type of symptomas one of them associated with the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
