Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS or spastic colon) is a diagnosis of exclusion. It is a functional bowel

disorder characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits in the absence of any detectable organic cause. In some cases, the symptoms are relieved by bowel movements. Diarrhea or constipation may predominate, or they may alternate IBS may begin after an infection, a stressful life event, or onset of maturity without any other medical indicators.

We use all natural nutritional products, dietary modification protocols and lifestyle changes to help you with your symptoms related to your digestive problem. We do appropriate testing through blood work, stool and saliva testing and help you accordingly.  If you want to help your body function better you need to figure out how your body is functioning and how to improve your health. Most patients can start feeling relief in 2-6 weeks and following advice within 3 months can relieve your symptoms. There are a few “deal breakers” that may need to addressed first that prevent you from getting better. I look for those first to help you better.

Several conditions may present as IBS including celiac disease (gluten intolerance), Fructose mal-absorption, mild infections, parasitic infections like giardiasis, several inflammatory bowel diseases, functional chronic constipation, and chronic functional abdominal pain. In IBS, routine clinical tests yield no abnormalities, though the bowels may be more sensitive to certain stimuli. The most common theory is that IBS is a disorder of the interaction between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract, and also be abnormalities in the gut flora or the immune system. This is why we perform a very though neurologic evaluation.

Experts say that IBS does not lead to more serious conditions in most patients. But it is a source of chronic pain, fatigue, and other symptoms, and it increases a patient’s medical costs, and contributes to work absenteeism. Again as I disagree, digestive issues are proven in the medical literature to contribute many chronic diseases!  Did you know your gut is also called the 2nd brain? Believe it or not many patients with digestive problems do not even know they have a problem with their digestion because they have no bowel issues.
