Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Around one in every five Australians will suffer the uncomfortable pains and symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). IBS is defined as a condition that affects the functioning of the bowel causing abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, constipation or diarrhoea. IBS can be embarrassing and distressing, often causing the sufferer to become more reclusive and they start to manage their lives around their digestive issues. This is no way to live your life.

Irritable bowel syndrome does not cause permanent damage or lead to the development of more serious conditions such as bowel cancer or colitis but it has a significant impact on your energy levels, immune system and quality of life. If you recognise some of the symptoms listed below why not visit our Cabalaba based clinic for irritable bowel treatment for people in Capalaba, Cleveland, Redland Bay, Thornlands and more.

Once we identify the trigger of your symptoms, we can help implement a health eating plan and provide prescriptions or natural medicines. After just a few days, you will already start to notice your energy levels increase and a better sense of well-being. With better gut health and adequate nutrition, your body will flourish increasing your energy levels, reducing stress and improving your quality of life.

Syndrome, Not Disease

One thing to keep in mind when you’re diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome is it just that, a syndrome, not a disease. Essentially it is a label for a ‘Collection of Symptoms’. This is great news. What it means is that we can identify the causes of your symptoms and once treated, they can be corrected.
At Capalaba Natural Health we believe that most of the symptoms associated with IBS are actually food intolerance symptoms. Therefore we firstly try to identify any food intolerances you may have that are irritating your digestive tract. We have an in-house food intolerance test which tests the 59 main foods that people are intolerant too and that are the most common drivers of IBS symptoms. This is a simple test that offers same-day results.

If a food intolerance is identified, we will provide you with solutions and alternatives to these foods that will assist in the relief of your symptoms.
In addition to food intolerances stress or anxiety is a big driver of IBS. Should stress or anxiety prove to be a high driver in your condition, there are many naturopathic approaches to calming the nervous system, nourishing your adrenals and reducing stress, anxiety and depression. We also have a Kinesiologist who can help identify your underlying stressors and help balance them for you.

Parasites, bad bacterial overgrowth or a lack of good bacteria can also contribute to IBS symptoms and can be addressed by our Natural Digestive Health Experts.

IBS Symptoms

The primary symptom’s associated with IBS is abdominal pain, cramping or discomfort that is relieved by passing wind along with frequent diarrhoea or constipation. You may also experience urgency to make bowel movements or a feeling of what is referred to as ‘incomplete evacuation’ meaning you have not completely emptied your bowels.

People with irritable bowel syndrome may also experience symptoms relating to chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sinus, eczema, poor memory, joint pain and reduced immunity leading to more colds or sickness than normal. Chronic pain and inflammation is very debilitating and can often lead to depression and anxiety.
