Finding the Source Enemy
When you are not aware of how the IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms came about, it can be very difficult for you to understand how to revert these symptoms. If you do not know the root of your issues, then all you can really do is tackle the symptoms.
Well ask yourself this very crucial question: Do you want to have your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms for life and have to deal with minimizing your symptoms every day of your life? Chances are, the answer will be an absolute no!
This means that first off, you really need to understand your problem from the very ground roots of it. You need to dig deep into the roots to find out why you are experiencing the symptoms that you are, as of current.
What brought on these symptoms and how you can revert it, ultimately depends on how it first came about and what triggered it to become a chronic condition. This means that you must first understand the 'grass roots' of what happened before your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms occurred.
Without requiring you to step all the way back to where it all began, because not everyone can recall the past events and occurrences as clearly as others perhaps. That is why, we will not ask you to think back, but it is important that if you can, do it.
Chances are very high that you either had a dose of antibiotics and/or you had a diet that included many processed foods that may or may not contain high amounts of refined sugars. These foods can easily cause your intestinal environment to be under siege. This means that you have destroyed the beneficial environment in your gut.
The gut needs this beneficial environment to keep your immune system strong and to defend your body for foreign invaders. If you took doses of antibiotics, this can also quickly ruin your gut environment and make it stale rather quickly. You want to avoid antibiotic like the plague. No doubt, it is what you put into your body, that can ultimately affect your digestive system.
Your digestive system is very important and you need to keep a watchful eye over it. The reason for this is because, what often goes in, does not come out quickly. Your body will breakdown, gather, spread, maneuver whatever it is that you consume and it will affect all of your organs including your intestinal tract.
When you are consuming foods that are highly processed, with or without high amounts of refined sugars, guess what? You are destroying your digestive system and you may be feeding the yeast in your body. Your body, since birth, was provided with a specific amount of digestive reserves. When you continually consume foods that have been so highly processed, this means that no more enzymes are contained in those foods.
We as humans, are in need of whole foods that contain a fair amount of enzymes within our foods. This helps the foods to break-down as we consume them. As a result, we use very little of our own bodily reserves to break down these foods. When you consume foods without enzymes, you gradually use up your reserves and it takes a very long time to rebuild these reserve levels.
Likewise, if you consume foods that are high in refined sugars, you feed the yeast in your gut. Yeast are healthy in normal amounts but when they are fed with refined sugars, they begin to grow.
A small amount of sugars is fine but when you feed your body with unpronounced amounts, the yeast begins to grow exponentially and actually begin to mutate. This mutation is a phenomenon, that is of most concern. The reason-being, is because the mutation of these yeasts, allows them to spore roots into your intestines, causing holes to be drilled into your intestinal walls.
This leads to many symptoms to be become apparent within the host, which are range from head fog, diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, versicolor, seasonal allergies, etc. The range of symptoms are overwhelming and can be different with each host. As a result, the yeast can quickly become your worst enemy and it is hard to get rid of.
Eliminate the Enemies
The reason that yeast is hard to rid of once they reach a large count within your intestines, is because they naturally exists in your body. You need yeast to survive but not the mutated ones and not in the high count that they are currently in.
Having yourself avoid sugars completely would be unreasonable as you need sugars to keep yourself running efficiently. These sugars however, should only be limited to natural sugars such as those found in fruits. Never should you be consuming candies or other highly refined sugars, as these directly feed your enemy (yeast) and this is the last thing you would want to do.
The first thing you want to do, is to modify your diet so that you can slowly but surely, work on eliminating the excess yeast. Likewise, as your change your diet, you will also be helping your digestive system, by only consuming whole foods that contain an abundance of naturally occurring enzymes.
As the diet is modified, you will be doing your digestive system a large favor by keeping it well taken care of. As a result, your digestive enzyme will thank you back by attempting to heal the damage that has been caused by poor diet and/or antibiotics.
With time, you will begin to notice that your symptoms will start to lift. Do not lose confidence in your diet changes if your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms flares up once in a while. It is all in the nature of the beast (IrritableBowelSyndrome) as it took some time for this condition to become chronic and as a result, it can take time for it to resolve.
Soon you will realize that what you placed into your body, was what caused you to be in the state that you are in right now. Do not believe the bogus answers that traditional doctors provide you, such as, it is your stress or it is all in your head.
Sure stress can flare up your systems but no one can eliminate stress completely. Nor will it help to try to avoid stress for the rest of your life just to reduce your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms a small notch. Sure, avoiding stress is definitely a good idea in general, to help with your symptoms but ultimately, this only helps with the surface of your ailment.
Avoiding stress will only enable you to feel less symptoms on a daily basis. The absence of stress, will by no means, eliminate or reverse your symptoms. It takes the modification of diet to relieve your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms on a permanent basis.
The changing of diet is a lifestyle change that you want to keep for a lifetime. It may sound hard now, but believe that you are meant to consume whole foods and not the processed foods you find at fast-food restaurants or the minute cooker meals. If you look at the life span of these who consume these processed goods on a consistent basis, it can be quite depressing. The statistics of their likelihood to be inflicted with life-threatening ailments are also increasing at an alarming rate.
As you see people at fast-food restaurants, looking healthy and consuming these foods, think again. The saying of 'it is not often what it appears to be,' is very true and you will soon realize this if you dig into the statistics. Many people often feel disturbances with their health when they consume these foods. If they are young, their body can compensate in the mean-time. However, it does not mean that it has not already damaged their health.
To eliminate your enemy within your digestive tract and to heal your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms, you need to work on yourself. You need to work on your diet and keep it consistent with an abundance of whole foods, made fresh from the supermarket. Never allow someone to recommend you antibiotics for your symptoms as they are unaware of the consequences that it brings to our society. This is the reason that so many people are having symptoms that have no cure.
Traditional doctors are very intelligent individuals, however, they work with one eye open. What this means is that these doctors have been taught only one area of remedy. They always work on the surface of your symptoms and the same with pharmaceutical companies. They work on your symptoms only and as a result, it places the burden on your body to heal itself, meanwhile the medications work on the symptoms.
When it comes to chronic conditions however, it works in the same fashion. You are prescribed medications to only work on relieving the IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms. Yet, it is difficult to grasp why there isn't any medications that work to resolve the issue completely. Well, as it has already been indicated, traditional medication works on the surface of the symptoms and lets the body heal itself.
With chronic conditions, it is chronic for a reason. Your body is incapable of healing itself, thus you will need to take the medications for life in order to attempt to relieve the symptoms. The symptoms will never go away unless the body can heal itself, which in this case of IrritableBowelSyndrome, it cannot.
Therefore, it boils down to how you work with your body to enable it to heal itself. This means modifying your diet, and we cannot tell you how long it will take as everyone is different and have different levels of recovery time. It will likely take more than three months at a minimum however, to truly experience a drastic amount of relief from your current IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms.
Over time, you will realize that you need to help your body instead of waiting on it to heal itself. The sad truth is that, your body will not heal itself without the aid of the host. The host is you, and it is time for you to start empowering yourself with the knowledge and know-to to reverse your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms.
Now that you are aware of how your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms is brought on, where it stems from, and what you need to focus on, it is time to work on it. This means, creating a regimen and modifying your diet to one that is friendly to your body.
Let your body rest and stop consuming foods that only cause your body to continue living in the alarmed state. This means that, when you consume foods that are incompatible with your body, the foods aggravate your digestive system.
Foods that you currently consume, may actually leak into your blood stream through the damaged intestinal walls, as a result of the yeast overgrowth. When the small food particles hit your blood stream, it causes your body to go into this alarmed state.
Your body continually tries to attack the invaders in the blood stream as it sees these foreign particles as invaders. Your body continues to go through this vicious cycle and ultimately it will wear out the host, causing yourself to feel very tired.
When you feel fatigued at random times throughout the day, it is almost always likely because of the foods that you had consumed. Sure, you can be consuming foods and you may thinking, if I eat anything, it should bring my energy levels up because food is food.
The matter of the truth is, food is not always food for your body. You may consume foods thinking that your energy levels should rise, but it may actually do the opposite. You may be indirectly aggravating your body by consuming foods that causes your body to be in the alarmed state, resulting in more fatigue.
Well how do you find out what foods are compatible with you? It may sound like an easy task, but it is actually quite difficult as everyone can have some differences in the foods that causes them grief. That is why, you can either create a food journal and slowly filter out the foods that you are incompatible with.
The more effective alternative, is to seek the help of an alternative practitioner in your area whom are able to conduct food allergy tests for you. This means that you are to provide a few drops of blood through the prick of your finger and the lab will analyze the results of how your blood reacts with the vast array of foods.
The foods that they test against, are often all the foods that you normally consume in any given month. This type of test is phenomal in what it can do for you as far as enabling you to be empowered to know what foods you should consume and which to avoid.
With time, you will be able to only consume foods that are compatible with you, all-the-while, allowing your body to focus its energy in repairing the internal damages. Diet can be an enormous role in your reversing your IrritableBowelSyndrome symptoms. This should be your very first step before attempting any other type of treatment or therapy.
Once you feel much better, you can then add other types of treatment plans to help with your IrritableBowelSyndrome. Always take situations, a step at a time. Everyone knows that 'easy does it', as it does not take hard powerful strides to accomplish something.
Often times, little steps over a period of time, work far more effectively than trying to brute force a situation such as an ailment, to try to reverse the situation. Some things like IrritableBowelSyndrome, are quite aggressive and persistent. This means that you must be patient and persistent in reversing the situation over a period of time.
