About IBS – Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) has been in existence many decades ago however it has become more and more prevalent since the late 1990s.
The condition of having irritable bowel has become significantly more common recently due to the diets we ingest as well as the mass production and use of prescription medication. Specifically speaking, antibiotics is the number one cause of chemical imbalance in your gut. When a patient takes a highly concentrated antibiotic for a prolonged period of time which spans greater than 7 days, it can severly disrupt the yeast and bacterial balance of your gut.
As a result, your gut can over produce yeast and other negative bacteria that is typically held under control by the natural living bacteria in your body. Antibiotics virtually wipe out all the bacterial (good and bad) from your gut.
On the other hand, over the years our food produce has been significantly altered and mass produced using various unnatural chemicals. The food products that are produced are far less nutritional in value and simply eaten as fiber without all the vitamins and minerals that these products use to contain in the past. When our body lacks the vitamins and minerals that we need, the deprived body begins to dip into the backup resources that the body holds. When this source also depletes, the health as a whole starts to deteriorate.
Doctors do not understand what causes IBS as they are focused on scientific reasonings and decades of study. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a condition that is attained when a doctor has run a complete series of test with you and you turned out negative for all other conditions. The left over result to explain your symptoms is irritable bowel. No prescription medication such as anti-depressants can help provide a long-term solution.
