Struggling with IBS?

This is a place to start.

Up to 40% of IBS patients are not happy with the results of their prescribed medications. IBS affects up to 20% of the world’s population and affects more women than men.  Most diagnosed cases happen in those less than 50 years old.

IBS is defined by the Rome III (2006) criteria:

Recurrent abdominal pain at least 3 days out of each month for at least 3 months

1.Pain improves after elimination

2.Pain is associated with a change in evacuation patterns (diarrhea and constipation)

Symptom onset has happened for at least 6 months prior

Holistic help allows you to take back your life and instead of having symptoms control you, you control the symptoms.  Integrative and holistic care helps decrease dependence on prescriptions, especially those that control the body’s organs and tissues. Becoming aware of how you feel and noticing what causes pain and when symptoms are alleviated, allowing you to acknowledge what helps and what causes your “triggers”.  When the mind and body experience less pain and you just feel better overall, you are on the right track.

IBS is not linked with the development of any serious disease or shortened life.  However, IBS patients tend to have more primary care visits for GI issues as well as other general complaints. IBS patients also appear to have more surgeries such as cholecystectomy (removal of gall bladder) and hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) when compared to those without IBS.

Let food be thy medicine

Focus on your diet

It all starts with food.  Some would say that health starts with your stomach.  Feed your body, feed your soul.  Each way of eating addresses different levels of distress.

1st level - High Fiber Diet
Especially for constipation

Fiber comes from plants – boost your intake of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. Examples include: apples, bananas, avocados, green vegetables, zucchini, celery, cauliflower, most root vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains. Recommended 30-38 grams for men, 21-25 grams for women.

2nd level - Gluten Free Diet
Especially for non celiac gluten sensitive

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, malt, and rye.  Products made with these grains can cause symptoms to flare. Many products are made gluten-free to cater to sensitive individuals.

3rd level - Paleo
Anti-inflammatory and for auto-immune challenged

A way of eating based on unprocessed, clean food.  Rich in fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, and nuts.  No grains and dairy here.

4th level - Low FODMAP diet
Especially for extreme sensitivity to carbohydrates

Very successful in controlling symptoms in research! Switch out food found on the high FODMAP list for those that are lower. Onion, garlic, wheat, and processed foods are limited and are reintroduced after 4-6 weeks.

5th level - Elimination Diet
When other diets don't work

See a registered nutritionist.  A diet with safe foods is implemented and single foods are replaced one at a time to identify trigger foods.

Because you deserve to relax

Focus on lifestyle

The mind plays an important part in health. Stress causes chemical reactions in the body and brain to ready them for fight or flight.  When stress turns chronic, digestion and absorption become erratic.  The mind-body connection need a reset.

  • Exercise. Move every day.

  • Yoga. Focus, center, breathe.

  • Meditate. Quiet the mind, reset the system.
