IBS Treatment - Therapies That Work

Also known as spastic colon, Iraqi Intestinal Syndrome or IBS is a bowel disorder that affects about 30% of people sometimes throughout their lives. And about 10% are very concerned about it so they seek medical help.

Some common symptoms of IBS include stomach aches, stomach aches, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence, dizziness, nausea, and back pain, which causes many people to lose their jobs, and restrict their social status. Although IBS treatments generally include gastrointestinal drug prescriptions and dietary changes, some therapies besides conventional treatments have shown promise.

4 Functional treatments

1. Fiber, antispasmodic, and peppermint oil

A study published on bmj.com in November 2008, suggested that the doctor's recommendation for first line treatment for acupuncture includes fiber, antispasmodic, and peppermint oil. Because research has found that patients treated with this combination are better than those treated with placebos or not treated at all. Also, no serious side effects have been found. And the treatment with peppermint oil seems to work best.

2. Probiotics

A study presented at the American Scientific Science Conference (ACG) 73 found that probiotics are safe and effective in treating constipation / diarrhea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Although probiotics are found to be effective, it is not possible to conclude that only one probiotic is sufficient or that the combination will work better. However, it works.

3. Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Hypnotherapy

A study that appeared in the July 2008 edition of the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology examined the relief of symptoms in IBS patients following a home-based cognitive behavioral program. The effectiveness of a home program is similar to that of a 10-week office program under the guidance of a trained therapist. An earlier study published in Digestive Disease Week 2006, showed that cognitive behavioral therapy and hypnotherapy were effective IBS treatments that also helped in other chronic disorders of the gastrointestinal tract.

4. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tibet And India

Research in "The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2006" shows that traditional herbal remedies can improve stomach aches, disturbed bowel movements, and / or bloating and distension related to Irritable Intestinal Syndrome (IBS). In the researchers' evaluation of 75 different randomized trials, they concluded that there was evidence that several alternative drugs helped improve global symptoms of IBS.
