Irritable Bowel Syndrome

In doing some research on what to say about this symptom I am lucky enough to have avoided, I am shocked to find that the Mayo Clinic claims that up to one in five people have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is said that food allergies seem to be a trigger but the connection is unclear. With what we now know about the gut and what can happen when unwanted pathogens take over our lining of good bacteria, it seems like IBS fits right into the category of symptoms. It takes a focus, a stubbornness, a motivation to want better health than what you have and to give yourself permission to go for it. Though I have never experienced IBS myself, I know it can be overcome. It is a symptom, just a side effect possibly among many that will subside if you move forth and heal your gut. Recommendation, GAPS diet with the guidance of an NTP Nutritional Therapist Practitioner, some one who is GAPs certified or a holistic practitioner who knows how to guide you through the process.
