What is IBS?

What is IBS?

IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
It is not a disease or physical problem, like Crohn's, and there is usually no obvious infection, deformity or inflammation that would explain the symptoms. The gut is perfectly healthy, but for some reason it simply does not function as it should.
No one knows what causes IBS and so there is no cure..

The treatment for IBS is aimed at helping you to identify your personal triggers and manage your symptoms. Many people find that colon hydrotherapy can provide relief from many of the symptoms of IBS.

What are the sypmtoms?

IBS symptoms differ from person to person and tend to come and go, often in response to trigger foods, stress or other factors. You may experience any of the following
Stomach cramps
Altered bowel habits such as diarrohea or constipation
Feeling bloated or heavy
Passing a lot of gas
An urgent need to go to the toilet

IBS is not a threat to your health, but the symptoms can still have a significant impact on you, resulting in physical discomfort, restricting your social life, causing anxiety when you go out and even leading to depression.
