Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Are you tired of being in pain? Is your work being interrupted by trips to the bathroom? Are you afraid to eat?
Canada has one of the highest rates of Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in the world, yet it is under-diagnosed.
Symptoms of IBS include:
Constipation and/or diarrhea
Gas & Bloating
Anxiety and/or depression
Impact on quality of life
Getting to the root cause of your IBS is necessary for successful and sustainable treatment.
Common IBS triggers & causes include:
Dysbiosis - imbalance of gut bacteria
A change in medication
A change in diet
Please note that it is important that we rule out life threatening causes of digestive issues first.
The benefits of being properly assessed and treated for IBS allow you to eat a variety of food without pain and discomfort. You will be able to clearly understand your triggers and why they result in a flare up. You will have a plan to manage your symptoms, can leave the house feeling prepared and feel comfortable going out to dinner with friends.
Don't accept pain as part of your life. There are always options for you.
