Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common problems existing in Western society today. As the name suggests very little is known about it.
Sufferers will know the plethora of symptoms associated with IBS. These include anything from indigestion, heartburn, bloating, excess gas, and apparent food intolerances to diarrhoea and constipation.
Much is made of food intolerances and the trial of restrictive diets in the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. However some believe this merely deals with effects of the underlying problem that make IBS symptoms worse. It is true that in general as organisms we are becoming more sensitive to certain products that no longer are digested well such as wheat and dairy. However, as sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome will know, removing such dietary compounds may give some reduction in the severity of the symptoms but they certainly will not remove them completely.
Some clients have reported great benefit from Mickel Therapy as we try to address the cause rather than simply tackling the symtom.
