A Cure for IBS
A Cure for IBS - it means reversing IBS by restrengthing your body, especially the gut and digestive organs.
The Underlying Cause
Curing IBS is too strong of a word. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a condition that was brought on as a result of a long period of continued damage to your digestive organs. This can be in the form of diet intake or in fact it can result from a stomch infection or flu. Other possibilities include the intake of concentrated antibiotics.
So curing Irritable Bowel Syndrome, actually means rebuilding the digestive tract to return it back to good health. Healing the stomach and intestines may take a long period of time and 'curing' can equate to a quick fix which is not possible.
An Effective Approach
The most effective approach would be to focus on treating each symptom, one step at a time. It would be best to treat the most bothersome and severe symptom first.
So for example, if you have severe diarrhea, you would want to focus on your diet and eliminate all foods that you have become allergic to. You can have an allergy test performed by an alternative practitioner. Once you have done this for a period of time such as 1 month, you may then introduce probiotics to help rebalance your gut with beneficial bacteria to help with digestion and boost your immune system.
Once the most severe symptom has been treated to the point that it is no longer an annoyance in your life, it is time to tackle the second-most bothersome symptom.
Let it be known that healing and reversing your IBS is a slow process and requires alot of patience, dedication and time. I have had remission (a state of absence of disease activity in patients with known chronic illness) from IBS for 3+ years now and I took a great deal of effort but it was worth every inch of sweat.
