45 million people in the United States alone struggle with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Even though IBS is common, it’s also extremely misunderstood. Symptoms can flare up unexpectedly and change over time, even day to to day. Here are the most common symptoms of IBS:
➡️ Abdominal pain and discomfort
➡️ Diarrhea, constipation, or both
➡️ Gas, bloating, or urgenc
Many people with IBS are stigmatized or brushed off by their doctors for having symptoms that are all in their heads. If you are one of these people, you are not alone. About 20% - 40% of visits to gastroenterologists are for IBS. And 2 out of 3 people affected are women
Plus, the good news is that we have excellent success with naturopathic and functional medicine therapies for IBS! Healing the gut is a high priority for all of our patients, so we have many strategies in our toolbox. Here are some things we consider when trying to get to the bottom of IBS symptoms:
➡️ Food allergies or sensitivities (including gluten)
➡️ History of food poisoning or gastrointestinal infection (this could be post-infectious IBS)
➡️ Microbiome imbalance (including small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or SIBO)
➡️ Stress (the gut-brain connection is real)
➡️ Histamine (which can cause visceral hypersensitivity to pain)
➡️ Hormones (because women tend to get IBS more than men, hormones can play a role
