Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common problems existing in Western society today. As the name suggests very little is known about it.
Sufferers will know the plethora of symptoms associated with IBS. These include anything from indigestion, heartburn, bloating, excess gas, and apparent food intolerance’s, diarrhea and constipation.
Much is made of food intolerance’s and the trial of restrictive diets in the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. However this merely deals with effects of the underlying problem that make IBS symptoms worse. It is true that in general as organisms we are becoming more sensitive to certain products that no longer are digested well such as wheat and dairy. However, as sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome will know, removing such dietary compounds may give some reduction in the severity of the symptoms but they certainly will not remove them completely.
Similarly many doctors now look upon Irritable Bowel Syndrome as ‘stress related’. This is only partially true as many with IBS can contest. The symptoms of IBS can be present when no ‘stressful’ situations are arising.
Since Irritable Bowel Syndrome’s symptoms are similar to those present in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME and Fibromyalgia, Mickel Therapy has effectively had the chance to apply its process to the condition of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The results have been very exciting and Mickel Therapy now offers a treatment without the need for medication or diet change to help with the disabling condition of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
