Treatments to Be Considered if You Suffer From IBS

Sep 3, 2008
There are several types of treatments that can be used in the relief of irritable bowel syndrome. Not all of them help in each single case and many times it is important to try out a variety of treatments before you find the one that works for you.

Known treatments up to date are the following:
Stress relief
Your diet
Prevention of the condition
Self care measures
Coping with the condition
Medications prescribed
Pure Aloe Vera supplements
Alternative medications available
Complementary treatments

Each of these avenues is something that you should carefully consider if you are to overcome what IBS can do to you. In addition to this, the severity of your condition should be taken into considerations. Those that suffer from more extreme cases are going to need more help than those that do not.

Your treatment should be based on just how extreme your condition is. In effect, the treatment for a mild case of IBS is not going to be enough for those with severe symptoms. Likewise, the treatment for severe IBS is not going to be beneficial to those that are suffering from a mild condition.

Your doctor will work with you in diagnosing and then determining what level of severity your IBS is. For each person, this will mean meeting with and following
up on the diagnosis your doctor gave you.

But you can learn more about your condition by monitoring the levels of your condition on your own. Once you know to what degree you are suffering, there is a simple set of tools available to you to use.

If you have mild IBS, your goal will be to work through management of stress factors and to make changes to the foods that you eat and to your overall lifestyle and consider starting to take a natural supplement to relieve some of the symptoms.

For those that are suffering from more moderate conditions of IBS, there is a need to make the changes noted above for mild conditions as well as to take fiber supplementation, anticholinergic medications (or those similar to them) and a pure and clinically tested aloe vera supplement is recommended in all cases.

If you do have a severe form of IBS, you will need to follow both the mild and moderate conditions, but in addition, you will need to talk to your doctor about further medications. These can include tricyclic or SSRI antidepressants or other types of medication although you will have to discuss with your doctor whether you are willing to accept the side effects those type of medication can cause.
