April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month and as a Nutritionist who LOVES digestion and hormones I had to bring some awareness to this condition.
I find that many clients I see have had this condition for years, meaning they are at a point where they are super inflammed, reacting to food, have skin conditions or allergies.
If we can bring more awareness to this condition then maybe those with IBS won’t have to suffer for so long without treatment that can actually improve their quality of life
In this chat I talk about
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- What are the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Causes of Irrtiable Bowel Syndrome
- Treatments for relief from Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- What if we look at Irritable Bowel Syndrome as a symptom not a condition?
If you suffer with IBS head and grab your FREE Gut Healing Cookbook with 11 low-reactive recipes so you can have yummy meals without the symptoms.
Listen To The Episode
If listening to Find Your Hum has left you… well… humming! I’d be super grateful if you could leave a review.
I promise you it’s super quick, easy and you literally only have to right a sentence. Of course even more love will be coming your way if you say nice things.
Quotes that made me hum…
“This lack of (stomach) acid can be the cause of the bloating, lack of energy and both the constipation and/or diarrhoea that you are experiencing. It can also cause a lack of nutrients and in some cases malnutrition as even with the healthiest diet your body can’t extract the goodness from the food. “
Stress or more so the effect it has on the body is a very common thread I find with all my IBS clients.
If we look at IBS as a symptom of say our nervous system or our upper digestive system or even our hormones then maybe the treatments for IBS would be aimed here rather than just trying to stop the cramping with some buscopan.
As frustrating as it can be getting to the bottom of what is causing your IBS symptoms can be and make you feel like you are in your own “Who done it?” novel, it is absolutely worth it.
