IBS is a debilitating condition and associated with a reduced quality of life. Common complaints include inability to lead a normal life as every move requires careful planning around bathroom activity.
In Australia alone, IBS affects close to 18% of the population. It is more prevalent in women than in men and mostly found in those younger than 50 (Better Health Channel, 2017).
Due to the fact that there are several layers of involvement, sufferers require a comprehensive assessment to provide specific and individualised treatment. Having said that, there is much a tailored herbal mixture can do towards assisting this condition and beginning a response that works on causes as well as symptoms.
Following are some of the symptoms associated with IBS: constipation, diarrhoea, alternating constipation and diarrhoea, gut distension, abdominal pain, urgency of bowel movement and flatulence. Of course severity will vary from individual to individual. A naturopathic approach offers great potential for gaining excellent therapeutic success for this condition.
