Sep 4, 2008
Have you been experiencing chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea, cramping, bloating, and constipation? Those are symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. It is a functional disorder of the bowel, not a disease by the way. However if not treated, its symptoms could get worst actually interfere with your work, and your ability to live life to the fullest. Moreover, it can also aggravate hemorrhoids.

Symptoms of irritable bowel movement, however, are not only limited to chronic intestinal problems. Irritable bowel syndrome can also affect one's state of mind. Having this functional bowel disorder one is also likely to experience sleeping and sexual problems, depression, anxiety, headache, backache, heart palpitations, as well as urinary symptoms. However, through appropriate diet, exercise, periodic colon hydrotherapy and counseling sessions, the symptoms can be alleviated, although for some cases, doctors might actually prescribe medications for diarrhea, colic, and depression.

The cause of irritable bowel syndrome is undetermined up until now. However, the disorder is known to be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, and other gastrointestinal diseases. Not eating a balanced diet can also worsen the symptoms as the bowel seems to have sensitive reaction to certain chemicals. It is believed that the elements somehow interfere with the communication between the brain and the bowel, causing the muscles to contract abnormally. The spasms may in turn affect the movement of the wastes in the colon causing diarrhea or constipation.

The treatment of irritable bowel syndrome includes medications to help decrease diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pains as well as anti-depressants to relieve the symptoms. A change in diet is also recommended for people who suffer from the bowel disorder. They should start getting used to a diet less in caffeine, alcohol, and fat. Instead, their diet should include more fiber and adequate water intake.

Also since irritable bowel syndrome is stress related, a range of psychological treatment including psychotherapy and behavioral therapy, hypnosis, meditation and biofeedback training are beneficial. Moreover, natural colon cleansing supplements and procedures are recommended to be included in the health regimen. These colon cleansing supplements are made from natural sources rich in fiber which can help in relieving the symptoms as well as promote regularity in bowel movements.

With the popularity of colon hydrotherapy as an effective naturopathic treatment for many ailments concerning the bowel, it is also considered as a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. This cleansing procedure eases the passage of the wastes, lessening abdominal pains. And since the procedure is very efficient in cleaning the colon, one tends to loose several unhealthy weight of accumulated toxic wastes. In truth, one can reap an abundance of benefits from colon hydrotherapy besides weightloss and relief from diarrhea or constipation. One can also be relieved of skin disorders as well as mental and emotional strains which are likely caused by the waste build-up.

Although irritable bowel syndrome is not exactly a disease, it is a condition that could worsen and make one's life difficult and less enjoyable. Thus, it is strongly advised a person suffering from the disorder should take the necessary steps in treating the symptoms. The treatments are not at all difficult, all it requires is precaution and the effort to live a healthy lifestyle in a healthy environment.
