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
First Ever Test for IBS CedarsSinai
IBS is probably the most prevalent gastrointestinalcondition. It accounts for about 10 percent of the populationworldwide and in the U.S. 10 to 15 percent ofthe population. So, imagine a patient who wakes up in the morning anddoesn't know when they're going to have a bowel movement;if it's going to be diarrhea or constipationé Are they going to be at arestaurant with friendsé Are they gonna be in a meetingé I mean it'svery traumatic because it's unpredictable in terms of the function. Sothere has been a lot of false roads
to the discovery of IBS. Part of the reasonis IBS was thought of as a psychological disease.That kind of leads patients on a bit of a goose chase because they have to go from to to try and get some answers. IBS there's no definitive test, so they goto another . Again, the tests get repeated so often thesepatients go a number years before they get a final diagnosisthat they're confident with. The development of IBS check has been probably8 years in the making. We discovered this toxin a number of yearsago
and thought that it might be relevant becauseall food poisoning have this one toxin. Eventually, we discover that this was the toxinthat could be the cause of IBS.You know, after seeing thousands and thousands of patients who suffer,who've seen many physicians, and who want to arrive at an answer,this could be the answer. It gives them a diagnosis for the 40 millionAmericans who have irritable bowel syndrome. They now have a test that saysyou have IBS. It's real. It's an organic disease. It's not a psychological disorder and theycan go straight to therapy
or at least get an answer.
The Microbial Hypothesis of IBS
Hi my name's Mark Pimentel and I'mfrom CedarsSinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. We have a new theory that's developingthat suggests that acute gastroenteritis or food poisoning actually cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome. So, how doesthat worké Over the last thirty years medical science has had a difficult timeaccurately defining, characterizing, and ultimately diagnosingIBS.
In the sixties, IBS was referred to as Spastic Colon. In the eighties, medicalprofessionals began to characterize it as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and by thenineties, Functional Bowel Disease of the IBS type. The most significant change of that timewas the increasing amount of scientific evidence supporting the theory that IBS is adirect outcome of an infection
precipitated by an episode of acutegastroenteritis. Multiple studies have confirmed for usthat there were a common set a bacteria involved. C. jejuni, Salmonella, Shigella, and E. coli. Additionally, there was a common toxin to thesebacteria: Cytolethal distending toxin, otherwise known as CdtB. CdtB is aneurotoxin that impacts the small
intestine. As with any toxin, the body reactswith an immune response. Antibodies are generated and sent outinto the bloodstream to protect the body. Because of structural similarities, theseantibodies crossreact to a protein commonly found in the nerves of the gutknown as vinculin. This process of crossreaction which is called molecular mimicryresults in an autoimmune response. Attacking vinculin has anotherdeleterious affect:
Neuronal degradation in the lining of thegut, which leads to reduced motility. The outcome of this cascade of eventsis stasis in the gut, which ultimately allows for bacterialovergrowth, also known as SIBO, or small intestinebacterial overgrowth. For the patient, this bacterialovergrowth manifests itself as the bloating andabdominal pain that are the initial symptoms of IBS.I'm really excited about these new biomarkers
for diagnosing diarrheapredominantIrritable Bowel Syndrome. Diagnosing diarrheapredominant Irritable BowelSyndrome has been a challenge, especially in setting up trying to figure out thecause of diarrhea, and separating diarrhea IBS fromInflammatory Bowel Disease or Celiac Disease. But even more exciting may be that in thefuture, as new studies are concluded, we will beable to say that we can diagnose all of IBS, including constipationpredominant IBS and mixed IBS.
