Talk IBS - When a person is inflicted with Irrtiable Bowel Syndrome, it often becomes the center of their thoughts, due to the aggravating daily symptoms presented.
The Possibility of Attaining Remission
As you start to read more about IBS, you will soon realize that it is a condition where many cannot find a cure. In fact, you will rarely find anyone saying that they have entered a state of remission. However, also know that remission does exist and it is possible.
The Wrong Use of Terminology
Seeing the sites that mention about cure, I really bite down hard and grind my teeth because cure sounds like it is possible to take a few pills to stop all of your IBS symptoms permanently. On the contrary however, IBS occurs over a period of time and is a result of bacterial/yeast overgrowth in the intestines.
The Next Steps for Seeking IBS Relief
When the delicate flora in your gut is imbalanced, it will take a period of time to reduce the yeast as well as to rebalance the bacteria. It is not a simple task to start reversing your IBS symptoms and often it requires a lot of effort on your part, from starting to modify your diet to taking herbal supplements.
No single pill is the solution to your IBS symptoms, it truly requires some focus and attention from your part. So as you begin to modify your diet into one that is IBS-friendly as well as taking relevant supplements to help out with your intestinal flora and digestion, this will reward you with a large difference in your symptoms.
Things Not To Follow By
There are many different methods of treatment that others have tried. When I see some IBS sufferers taking a variety of antibiotics over a long period of time such as over a month long, I get really concerned. This will flush the beneficial bacteria out of your intestinal tract.
