While gathering information and client comments to prepare for the upcoming launch of our Treating IBS Naturally program, I was quite unnerved by a common problem that I knew people had.  I just wasn’t fully appreciating the seriousness of it.

 

Constipation is one of the major symptoms of IBS and its severity can range from mild and unnoticeable to debilitating and severe.

 

A few people shared stories of having battled the constipation for years, and having suffered terribly as a result.

 

Constipation is quite simply an infrequent or halted bowel pattern.  The effects, however, are anything but simple.

 

People who have “occasional irregularity” like they describe in the happy sing-songy commercials have probably experienced some irritability, bowel pain, and general inconvenience as a result of their mild constipation.

 

Others, though, have battled this debilitating symptom in its worst incarnation- not the mild irregularity but rather the full-blown genuine medical emergency.

 

For some, it’s difficult to think that not being able to move the bowels for a couple of days could constitute a genuine medical emergency, but it’s not just those couple of days that cause the problem.

 

If you’ve ever had surgery, you know that in the post-operative instructions you have an item that says to call the doctor right away if you are faced with not moving the bowels for more than 3 days.  For some surgical procedures, you might not even be discharged until you’ve moved your bowels.

 

You are sent home generally with instructions to increase water intake, add some stool softeners or prune juice, and other tips to “keep things moving.”

 

But what if it doesn’t work?  That’s why you have to call the doctor, because he or she knows that bad events are on the horizon if you don’t get help right away.

 

One person who wrote in described his ordeal of having gone to the emergency room because of the excruciating and unbearable pain he experienced.  He had been essentially without movement for 6 days and knew something was wrong but decided to try and “tough it out” at home.

His wife was the one who poured his shaking, sweaty, pale body into the family minivan.  She thought he was having a heart attack.

 

When they got to the ER and the doctor did his exam, he knew immediately what the problem was.

 

A simple enema solved his problem, but anyone who has ever had one of those knows it’s no trip to the park undergoing that unpleasant procedure.

 

What caused his wife to take him in? Simple- he could no longer argue with her and say “No, I’ll be fine.”  He had long passed the point of manly stoicism. He was experiencing a genuine medical emergency.

 

What would have happened if she didn’t act? No one likes to think about that.

 

So how do you know if your constipation is a genuine medical emergency?  Signs to look for are below:

 

  • Severe pain
  • Constipation hasn’t responded to standard treatments
  • Profuse sweating
  • Weight loss
  • Lack of bowel movement for more than 5 or 6 days
  • If you’ve also had recent surgery or anesthesia
  • Sudden onset (i.e., you don’t normally struggle with it, you just suddenly stop movements)
  • Pallor changes (facial color goes from its normal hue to grey and pale

 

For a genuine medical emergency to exist, you don’t have to have all of these characteristics of a severe problem with constipation.  Even just experiencing a lack of bowel movement for more than 5 days in the absence of all the others is enough to require immediate treatment.

 

The man who wrote in was looking for answers to his chronic constipation, as so many others frequently do.

 

I found myself offering the same advice to each person, but because bowel conditions had previously fallen outside the scope of my research I wasn’t able to help everyone as I wanted…until now.

 

I am happy to announce that very soon I will be releasing the program for Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome Naturally and have found someone whose own life has been affected by the terrible effects that come with severe constipation.  In her guide, Julissa Clay describes a comprehensive and easy-to-follow plan to treat IBS naturally.

Which is the Best Calcium Supplements for IBS?

Which is the Best Calcium Supplements for IBS? Calcium supplements for IBS is essential because one of the key symptoms for people suffering Irritable Bowel Syndrome is diarrhea. When this painful symptom occurs, it depletes the body of not just valuable fluids, but also critical minerals and vitamins, such as calcium.

Calcium Supplements for IBS: Which is Best?

 

It has been estimated that at least 65% of the people suffering from IBS are women.  It is also widely known that women are at much higher risk of developing osteoporosis later in life than male counterparts.

 

What’s the connection? One of the key symptoms for people suffering Irritable Bowel Syndrome is diarrhea. When this painful symptom occurs, it depletes the body of not just valuable fluids, but also critical minerals and vitamins, such as calcium.

 

Of the supplements that are on the list of recommended treatments for IBS sufferers, some form of calcium is always going to be on the list, as this crucial mineral is absolutely necessary for bone growth and strength, healthy teeth, optimum nerve function, and muscle function.

Since almost all of the body’s calcium is stored in the bones, and it’s not something the body can make on its own, it is important to supplement when there is a deficiency.  The body will use any available calcium it can, even if it has to leach it from the bones.

 

This is why it’s so important to get useable calcium in a supplement form if you aren’t jazzed about the idea of eating 100 pounds of broccoli and beans every week.

 

Which is the Best Calcium Supplements for IBS?

 

But which is the best form of supplementation? A reader asked once about the difference between calcium citrate and calcium carbonate, and which is the better option.

 

Calcium carbonate is found naturally all over the earth. Common examples of it are limestone, marble, and chalk.

 

It is also found in some chewable and drink-based supplements as well. It is the least expensive form but a lot of people have trouble with it…especially people with a history of kidney stones.  This is a problem for IBS sufferers because chronic dehydration puts added stress on the kidneys.

 

This form also requires the consumer to take it with food to avoid a lot of the stomach and intestinal upset issues that accompany it.  It also causes constipation and gas. Who needs that?

 

While the positives of the supplement (widely available and cheap) are important to note, it’s also worth noting that if a supplement is hard to digest or causes other problems, it’s not really doing its job.

 

Most of the evidence out there suggests that calcium citrate is the far and away best choice for people, regardless of whether or not they have IBS or any other condition, simply because it is much more easily processed by the body, doesn’t have to be taken with food, and isn’t going to interfere with other medications such as those for GERD.

 

Calcium citrate doesn’t have the same high levels of calcium as calcium carbonate, so you have to end up taking more of it to do the same job.  However, the risk of over-supplementing and the side effects of that are much, much less. So, it can be considered the best calcium supplements for IBS.

 

If cost is an issue, I would offer the same comment that most of us in the natural health research industry stand by: you get what you pay for.  It is frequently less expensive in the long run if you have a digestible, easily tolerated supplement that your body can make full use of without side effects if you “write the long check and cry once.”

 

While we are not supposed to recommend a particular name brand of calcium supplements for IBS (a licensing issue), I can tell you that calcium citrate is found at most every vitamin aisle in grocery stores, discount department stores, drug stores and certainly health food stores.

 

Finding one you like shouldn’t be hard to do, especially if you already take another supplement from a maker you particularly like.

IBS Pain, Irritable Bowel, Irritable Blood, Meddlesome Bacteria

 

There are all kinds of beneficial bacteria that we should consume to aid our digestive health. Acidophilous is one that researchers have touted for many years as a great helper.

 

Found in yogurt, which is essentially fermented milk, acidophilus and several other cultures are used during the fermentation process. But there is another fermented product, this one made from soybeans,that might be doing double-duty in the body.

 

Nattokinase is an enzyme that is found in a food product called Natto. This preparation of fermented soybeans has been a staple in Japanese diets for many, many years.

 

In addition to helping with digestion trouble, this enzyme is also purported to be used as a natural blood thinner. Many herbalists and doctors have agreed that it has strong potential as a clot buster.

 

However, the evidence of the blood thinning capabilities is sketchy at best, and many reports of injury and aggravation of conditions have been published to indicate the danger of abandoning prescribed blood thinning therapy and replacing it with nattokinase supplements at this point.

 

It is important to remember that clot-busting and blood thinning are different things that get confused a lot. This might explain not only why nattokinase is good for one problem and not another, and also why it might be ineffective or even dangerous for people who are already on blood thinning therapy.

 

The enzyme has been found to have fibrolytic qualities, which means that it is effective in dissolving a protein called fibrin. Fibrin is critical in the development of clots as it creates a sort of mesh. Nattokinase is believed to break apart the mesh, dissolving the clot.

 

Blood thinners, conversely, work by preventing the coagulation of the red blood cells in the first place.

 

It’s a small difference, but an important one.

 

For general health, nattokinase in its originally found form (meaning in the food Natto) is probably a pretty good digestive and circulatory aid.

But, like with so many other properties in superfoods, we find supplement marketers rushing to make the intake of said property easy and cheap.

 

So they isolate the enzyme, removing it from the rest of the food product that is also part of the beneficial banquet that makes up the food, and super-charge it into an ultra-concentrated form.

 

Now, make no mistake. With some vitamins and nutrients, this is an okay idea since you’d have to eat three tons of something just to get to the good stuff.

 

But with enzymes that are most effective when they are surrounded by the food that produced them, isolating them in this way is just not a good idea especially for people who have IBS Pain.

 

People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome who are considering the laundry list of supplements and foods to enhance their diet and relieve their conditions really need to do the research before taking the word of well-intention friends and family members.

 

Ulcers can, and do, frequently accompany IBS and adding nattokinase can spell painful disaster.

 

For people with circulation issues who have cast iron stomachs, you’re probably better off sticking to the regimen your doctor prescribed instead of tinkering with a supplement that can lead to hemorrhage, stroke, hematoma, and other bleeding disorders.

 

For everyone else, those of you who are trying to just maintain healthy ways and fend off the ravages of time, you’re likely okay to check out the supplement, with your doctor’s blessing. It may be a good helper for your circulation or digestion and if you are already in fairly good health you may tolerate it just fine.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome – How to Treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome Naturally

 

How would you like to treat irritable bowel syndrome naturally– without the nasty side-effects you get from drugs and medication?

 

You see, there’s this way to feeling great again by ridding yourself of irritable bowel syndrome – simply by eating the right combination of foods.

 

It’s no secret that certain foods have a significant effect on your bowel movements.

 

And the good news is that researchers have now determined exactly what foods you should eat to eliminate irritable bowel syndrome.

 

What Foods to Eat to Treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome Naturally?

 

Irritable bowel syndrome is typically characterized by bouts of diarrhea and constipation, making it extremely tricky to tackle. Anti-depressants, anti-spasmodic and laxatives are usually given to treat the different symptoms, but all these drugs come with harmful side-effects.

 

Insoluble fiber like bran and oats can control diarrhea but possibly aggravate constipation. The better option would be to include soluble fiber like psyllium husk that can alleviate the abdominal pain and other symptoms.

 

Probiotics are also recommended as good choices to treat irritable bowel syndrome naturally. However, not all probiotics work the same and it is best to test the ones that provide relief from common symptoms.

 

The FODMAP diet is gaining popularity and this diet targets elimination of food high in excess fructose, fructans, lactose, galacto-oligosaccharides and polyols. The diet requires one to exclude a lot of food from the regular diet including many types of sweet fruits, milk, dairy products, legumes, barley, rye, wheat and a few other items.

 

However, the good news is that the diet restriction is temporary. Food can be introduced one by one, based on how well your system takes it in without aggravating the condition.

 

The FODMAP diet has been found to be successful but it is recommended only by a qualified dietician after checking the body for celiac disease and other conditions.

 

It turns out that there’s an easier – and even more effective – way to get rid of irritable bowel syndrome.

How Best to Quickly Relieve Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms?

How Best to Quickly Relieve Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms? Many people with IBS already use it to relieve irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, and message boards all over the Internet are replete with testimonies that it works.

IBS Cured Using This “Illegal” Chewing Gum

 

Many people with IBS already use it to relieve irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, and message boards all over the Internet are replete with testimonies that it works.

 

Two researchers from Italy’s University of Naples published a literature review in the Journal Pharmacology & Therapeutics, finding abundant evidence of receptors in the human intestinal tract that are chemically responsive to this illegal substance when it is used to relieve irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.

 

It’s not illegal everywhere, so mounting evidence may lead the way to getting it legalized in more places than ever before.

 

The researchers in Naples uncovered a mountain of evidence showing our digestive tracts are crammed with cannabinoid type 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid type 2 (CB2) receptors, the mechanisms through which cannabis exercises its biological effects via your nervous and your immune system respectively.

 

You’re thinking it already: cannabis = marijuana.

 

The studies also concluded that this endocannabinoid system in the gut was involved in the regulation of food intake, nausea, vomiting, secretion of stomach acids, protection of your stomach and intestinal linings, movement of the muscles and nerves in your digestive tract, movement of food through your digestive tract, sensation inside your abdomen, and so forth.

 

They found studies that suggested that genetic mutations in the endocannabinoid system are potentially responsible for many digestive tract diseases, and this made them wonder whether cannabis could potentially be an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.

 

Armed with all this information, companies have been developing CBD-based products for intestinal problems. One of these, AXIM® Biotech, have even managed to get its CanChew CBD Chewing Gum legalized in all 50 American states because they could prove that it was not habit-forming and lacked psychotropic effects.

 

This CanChew gum is now entering its first scientific trial at Wageningen University in the Netherlands to see whether it genuinely works for people when they use it to treat irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.

 

They want to know whether it can control abdominal pain, bloating, and discomfort, and will also record whether they experience a change in the number of times they have to empty their bowels.
