IBS – there’s more to it than diet alone

This week has been a real week for IBS clients, irritable bowel syndrome being a blanket term for an array of symptoms including bloating, diarrhoea, constipation and cramps. Many IBS clients are at their wits end with their symptoms and come to me as a last resort.

From experience, I have learnt that whilst diet can have a dramatic effect on IBS and bloating, it is not always the only answer. If there is some underlying digestive issue, even the best diet in the world will not clear up IBS entirely. For this reason I often recommend stool testing to assess digestive health and identify any ‘nasties’ such as parasites (surprisingly common), and bacteria and yeast infections.

Once we’ve worked on restoring a client’s digestive health and ensuring a healthy balanced diet, IBS symptoms such as bloating and constipation can be left firmly behind in the past.
