Woman with hands over her stomach in pain

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome, (IBS) is a common condition that causes a variety of unpleasant abdominal symptoms. This gut condition affects one in five people at some time, mostly people aged between 25 and 45. Women are more often affected than men.

Symptoms include: constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal cramping, bloating and wind.

Although the exact cause is unknown, it is thought that a combination of poor nutrition and stress could be an important factor.

It is a good idea to identify food allergies and intolerances. The Vega Test is non-invasive and will instantly and accurately identify any problem foods. Good nutritional advice can really improve bowel problems and increase well-being generally.

Flower essences and Natural Healing can be used to help the sufferer to manage their stress. I find that one of the biggest stresses involved with this condition is the anxiety of not knowing how the bowel will behave on a daily basis. The sufferer often becomes afraid to leave the safety of the home! Also many people naturally hold their stress in their abdomen, meaning that the extra tension can further aggravate IBS symptoms. Both flower essences and healing are highly effective and beneficial therapies for all of these symptoms.

“I have cut out all the food I am intolerant to and all I can say is, wow, what a difference it has made. I have only had two episodes but that was in the first week and since then I have had no stomach pains, cramps, diarrhoea or constipation.” Jillian, Essex.
