Don’t suffer with IBS! Solve it!

I love guts!  Yesterday I was dealing with a lady who had suffered horrible IBS for a number  of years.  In this lady’s case, I asked her to do a Gut Function Test (a stool sample sent to a lab) –  we often  do this test as it is almost impossible just to guess what is going on in the bowel – Often the doctor is just giving us bulking agents (fibre) to peppermint oil (for spasm) without knowing the underlying causes.   Of course, it is always best to go to the doctor first – as the doctor can rule out any serious problems.

With my patient yesterday I was able to tell what was wrong from the results of the test – she had very low digestive enzymes, the immunity in her gut was very low (SIgA) – but she also has a parasite (B. Hominis) and H.Pylori (Bacterial infection) – with a bit of luck, now we know what is actually going on we are able to address the root causes of this.  Patience is the watch word – but we will make very good progress!
