What Causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome And How You Can Treat It Successfully?

By Madeline Innocent;

Many people suffer with digestive issues of one sort or another. What causes irritable bowel syndrome or other digestive disorders? What can you do to cure it completely?

There is no medical solution to this troublesome problem, because they fail to see what the cause it. Medically, the symptoms can only be managed.

The common symptoms of ibs include bloating, pain and/or abdominal cramps, alternating constipation and diarrhoea, backache, nausea, indigestion, weariness, mucus in the stool. Around a quarter of people suffer with this problem, and women are more likely to have it than men.

The large intestines in most affected area.

There are various factors which I believe to be the cause of this condition.


1. Stress
, such as is so common in our so called civilised world, is a major cause of any digestive disorder.

2. Antibiotics kill off the essential gut flora necessary for complete digestion. While probiotics can help address this, it is far healthier to look for alternatives to these meddlesome drugs.

3. Diet is critical to the health of your gut. Meat tends to rot in your intestines, creating all manner of problems. A diet devoid of meat, or at least low in it, will contribute to a much healthier digestive system. Dairy products are not easily digested. Processed food is alien to your natural ability to digest and absorb food.

4. Unresolved genetic predisposition can be the cause. When people have a problem which is unresolved at an energetic level, it can be passed down to subsequent generations.

Once you open up your mind to common lifestyles of today, it is easy to see what causes irritable bowel syndrome - it's our way of life that is so far from the way we evolved. Perhaps it should be surprising that so few are affected.

The health of your gut is critical to your overall health. If you have ibs, then you will also have compromised general health. Overall health can only occur when your digestive system is working as it should. If the food is not being digested, lack necessary nutrients, or is toxic, your health must suffer.

Let's look at how you can improve your gut health on all four fronts.

Stress maybe common in our world today, but it doesn't have to be. Stress is caused by an inner imbalance. By getting good homeopathic health care, you can drastically reduce the stress you suffer with, even though the circumstances have not changed. Instead, you have changed your perspective, leaving stress behind for the useless emotion it truly is.

Homeopathic treatment has no need for antibiotics, because each well prescribed remedy deals with the cause of the problem, obviating the need for your body to allow a population explosion of bacteria.

When you eat a diet rich in natural fibre, from real food, your intestines can quickly digest and utilise it, without any problem or symptoms. Real food is that which is not laced with chemicals whether in the form of agricultural sprays, GM or processing procedures.

Homeopathic treatment is perhaps the only form of treatment of any sort, whether natural or not, that can finally draw a line under a genetic predisposition to any health problem. This makes it an ideal treatment to have prior to having children.

Now you know what causes irritable bowel syndrome, you can take control of your life and finally let it go. Don't settle for managing your health issues, when you can free yourself of them completely.
