Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
What is IBS?
"Could my indigestion be due to a specific food I'm eating?"- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is an intestinal health issue that is often caused by food sensitivity. When food is being digested and reaches the large intestine, muscles lining the walls of the intestine contract and relaxed rhythmically to move food through the colon. For those who suffer from IBS, these contractions could be abnormal and cause issues such as constipation, cramping and gas. Although the exact cause of IBS is unknown, many individuals suffering from the syndrome experience worse symptoms after ingesting certain foods, which often include milk products, alcohol, and certain fruits and vegetables.
How to Find Relief from Irritable Bowel Syndrome
If you have been diagnosed with IBS, or if you are experiencing symptoms and would like to learn more about it, call South Denver Wellness to find out about our services. We could help you determine the foods to which your body reacts poorly by guiding you through a
food elimination diet, or we could help you with
gut restoration over a period of time to restore your internal balance. Irritable Bowel Syndrome could contribute to poor immunity, poor intestinal health, weight gain, or restricted
weight loss capabilities due to your body's reaction to the offensive foods you eat. If you believe that you or your loved one is suffering from IBS, contact our offices as soon as possible to schedule your initial consultation.
