Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a digestive disorder, which could cause pain in the abdomen, cramps, bloating, diarrhea and/or constipation. A sense of incomplete evacuation and urgency may also be present. This disorder is increasingly becoming common amongst young executives and go-getters. IBS is a disease, which is never life threatening, but tends to run for an irritatingly long time. Though the exact cause of IBS remains to be known, stress is a common triggering factor. Some individuals begin experiencing IBS symptoms after an infection or surgery of the abdomen. Whatever be the triggering food or factor, in IBS, there is disorganization in the movements of our intestines.
IBS Treatment in modern medicine:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment with modern medicine aims at controlling the prominent symptoms. If diarrhea is troubling you the most, anti-diarrheals and bile acid binding agents are prescribed. If Constipation is your predominant symptom, laxatives are advised; whereas an anticholinergic may be prescribed for cramps and pains.
IBS Treatment in homeopathy:
In contrast to modern medicine, homeopathy – which treats the patient as a whole, and not just his intestines – has a different approach. Considering the influence of stress in triggering and maintaining IBS, homoeopathy offers an excellent scope.
In Depth IBS Treatment:Rather than treating the symptoms superficially, homeopathy aims to treat the root cause of the disease, restore the immunity and stress coping mechanism. Thus it provides a customised and long lasting solution for each patient.
Safe IBS Treatment: Since there are no worries of side effects even if consumed for a long time, homeopathy is one of the safest treatment options for IBS.
Better Quality of Life:As the treatment progresses and the medicines begin healing the immunity, the frequency and intensity of every episode decreases gradually. You will also notice that dietary and environmental factors which earlier aggravated your IBS will now not trouble you as much as before.
Diet and Lifestyle:
In addition to homeopathic remedies, modifications in diet and lifestyle help maintain a good quality of life. Chocolates, milk and alcohol are known to aggravate many IBS patients and are better avoided. For those patients in whom constipation is predominating, a high fiber diet is very helpful. Thus, homeopathy is a gentle, thorough and long lasting solution for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Dr Rajesh Shah has treated more than 200 cases with successful results at LifeForce Homeopathy.
