Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms - ibs natural treatment

Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms are a very common disorder. It is estimated to affect 10-20% of the population, with a 2:1 ratio of women to men suffering from the condition. The condition is notoriously erratic and unpredictable in the nature of its symptoms and triggers.

It is not related to any other disease, and does not develop into any other disease, such as ulcerative colitis or colon cancer. It can, however, be devastating to a persons’ professional and personal life depending on the severity and frequency and duration of attacks.

The exact causes are unclear. Doctors cannot easily identify specific abnormalities of the bowel that produce the symptoms. Some studies suggest that the nerves of the colon may be much more sensitive than usual in people with the condition. The normal movement of food and gas through the colon causes greater than usual pain, intestinal spasms and an irregular pattern of bowel movements.

It was previously held that stress may be a major cause. This theory is no longer accepted, and it is now believed that stress is not a cause, but it can increase the symptoms, especially pain.


Abdominal pain
Bloating / bloated feeling
Intestinal cramping / spasms
Trapped wind / gas

The Irritable Bowel syndrome symptoms that a person experiences can vary from attack to attack, although a pattern generally emerges for an individual. This pattern may change over time, and variations may occur in particular attacks.

The severity, duration and frequency of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms are similarly unpredictable. A person could experience acute indications, which sometimes can last for days or even weeks. Under these conditions the persons’ life could be severely affected. Sometimes the indications may disappear for months or even years.


Because these symptoms may be caused by a number of different bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome / spastic colon is usually diagnosed only after your doctor rules out the possibility of a more serious problem.

There are no biochemical or laboratory tests for ibs, the way there is for ulcerative colitis, or colon cancer, for example. A colonoscopy (examination of the colon through a special instrument) can reveal the fried, red tissue that is a sign of ulcerative colitis. With ibs the lab tests come back normal, yet the colon does not function normally. Thus, physicians call irritable bowel syndrome a "functional disorder."

Once diagnosed, you may be able to reduce the frequency and severity of attacks with drugs, herbal remedies, herbs and dietary control.

IBS natural treatment containing herbs is fast becoming more popular especially with those concerned with the medium and long-term effects of chemical substances. Some excellent results have recently been reported with traditional medicinal herbs in the treatment of IBS.

Results of a clinical trial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, show the effectiveness of IBS herbal treatment using natural Chinese herbal remedies. Physicians found a great improvement in 78% of patients who had undergone treatment with the standard formula of natural Chinese medicinal herbs during this 16 week trial.
