Is IBS ruining your life?
It’s another 1 in 5statistic.
1 in 5 people in the UK suffer from IBS.
Sufferers are plagued by uncomfortable and disabling symptoms like bloating, cramps, diarrhoea, constipation, and pain.
Total discomfort that makes you miserable, unhappy and unable to go about your daily
If you do venture out you need to know exactly where all the toilets are, its difficult to eat out
and even live a “normal”life and SO Many people really suffer.
Many have suffered for decades without relief.
Typical advice is get more fibre or take Metamucil, or prescribed sedatives, anti-spasm drugs, or even antidepressants.
But what about the cause?
IBS is a digestive issue so looking at the food consumed and eliminating
irritating foods and inflammatory foods is going to have a positive benefit.
Is this you?
Is IBS affecting your health and wellbeing?
Addressing the underlying causes
of why your digestion is not working is key.
So What Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome
These are the two main causes of IBS: Food allergies and overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine.
How Gut Imbalances Can Lead to IBS
Food is absorbed in the small intestine which is also the site of 60% of your immune system.
This sophisticated gut-immune system is just one-cell layer away from all of the bacteria and undigested food particles in your gut.
If the gut lining breaks down — from stress, antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, steroids, intestinal infections, a low-fiber, high-sugar diet, alcohol, the immune system will be exposed to foreign particles from food and bacteria and other microbes.
This will trigger and activate immune response, allergy, and will irritate your second brain (Gut) creating havoc that leads to an irritable bowel, an irritable brain, and other system wide problems including allergy, arthritis, autoimmunity, mood disorders, and more.
The gut must be healthy for you to be healthy.
When your gut bacteria are out of balance — when you have too many pathogenic bacteria and not enough healthy bacteria IBS is triggered.
Did you know you’ve got 3 pounds of bacteriam, 500 species, in your gut?
In fact, there is more bacterial DNA in your body than there is human DNA.
If the nasty bacteria in the gut moves into the small intestine, they can start fermenting the food
your digest, particularly SUGAR again.
They LOVE sugar!
Are you seeing a pattern here…..??
Blinking SUGAR AGAIN
This is called small bowel bacterial overgrowth, and it’s a major cause of IBS.
The major symptom it causes is bloating, or a feeling of fullness after meals.
What causes this bloating?
The overproduction of gas by the bacteria as they feast on the sugar you have eaten.
The eat what you have eaten.
YUK YUK YUK!
So that’s one cause…there are more
There’s more than one factor that leads to IBS. Another major cause of IBS is food sensitivities.
A landmark paper, was recently published in the prestigious British medical journal Gut that found eliminating foods identified through delayed food allergy testing (IgG antibodies) resulted in dramatic improvements in IBS symptoms.(iii) Another article, an editorial in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, stated clearly that we must respect and recognise the role of food allergies and inflammation in IBS.(iv)
What other factors contribute to IBS?
1: Food allergies and overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine — but there may be others.
2:Lack of digestive enzymes.
3:Parasites living in the gut.
4: Zinc or magnesium deficiency.
5: heavy metal toxicity.
