Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can be a frustrating condition to live with. Gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and pain can flare at a moment’s notice, or linger every day. The good news…you may not need to live with it!
IBS is an indication of digestive system dysfunction. It is not a disease. Several conditions including food intolerance and small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) are often assodiated with IBS. Your 3-step naturopathic program helps get to the bottom of your condition and regain normal function.
1Initial assessment including testing for reactive foods. Food is medicine in IBS treatment. This is why our first step is dietary therapy, based on the results of your food sensitivity test, and in the context of your metabolism.
2Targeted herbal and probiotic protocols to address gut flora imbalances including SIBO.
3Guidelines for maintenance, prevention and follow up. Stress management techniques and/or acupuncture, may also be indicated.
