Hi and welcome to another Health Bunker Blog
Today I am looking into Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It is another modern phenomenon, in the UK 1 in 5 people will suffer from IBS.
But what causes it and how bad is it.
When I stared with Lyme disease symptoms around 2006, looking back now one of the first things that started causing me trouble was IBS.
My digestive system was going haywire. Bloating, burping, trapped wind, farting like an old motorbike, acid indigestion, constipation, and diarrhoea.
These went on to cause other issues or make existing ones worse like, anxiety, ME, and sinusitis.
In fact, all my normal digestive functions basically stopped working.
Diet as always is key, our digestive system cannot handle the amount of junk we are piling into it.
Along with the medications that destroy our gut flora and the chemical intoxication that interferes with just about every single bodily function. It is a recipe for disaster.
Then we have the lovely parasites.
These are the points we will cover;
What is the cause of your IBS?
What are the IBS symptoms?
Is there a specific diet required to treat IBS?
What drugs are given to sufferers of IBS and are their any side effects?
Are there any studies on IBS?
Are there any long term issues caused by IBS?
