Is There A Natural Cure For Acid Reflux And IBS?
My name is Martin Jacobse and I?ve been researching alternative health remedies for doctors, patients and various health care professionals for more than 33 years now.
Through the years I?ve helped literally thousands of people find safe natural health solutions when traditional medicine has left them suffering. Today I am hoping to help you.
Most people are aware that modern medicine has failed in many respects. True they are good at blocking the symptoms when treating a diagnosis, but they do not address the health of the whole person.
Ancient healers from diverse cultures around the globe used natural principles for eons. This time-tested approach focuses on helping the whole person by first recognizing all things are interconnected. Westernized medicine only looks at what it can do to for the part.
As an Acid Reflux sufferer you may be well aware that something is definitely off kilter with your gut. It may sound too painful to imagine, but many? people looking for a treatmenf for acid reflux are also afflicted with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
First, Let me tell you a little about IBS
Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects so many parts doctors can?t even agree on what it is, let alone on what to do with it.
The word syndrome, derived from the Greek language, literally means ?run together.?? Irritable Bowel Syndrome has many symptoms that often ?run together? making it difficult to treat with westernized medicine.
The problem with treating IBS with drugs is they target only one part of the problem. Unfortunately, blocking any number of symptoms doesn?t address what is really causing your IBS pain.
Truth is Irritable Bowel Syndrome has not been properly defined and most doctors fail to explain to people what it really is.
Let me try to explain IBS for you.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a functional bowel disorder sometimes referred to as spastic colon. Two of the major symptoms are painful stomach cramps followed with changes in bowel habits. These changes can fluctuate between diarrhea and constipation. Your IBS pain is caused from ?bloating up? between bowel movements.
Considering IBS makes up as many as 50% of all gastroenterology cases every year in the US, its cause still baffles the medical community. Because of this fact, there is no standard test available to detect it.
All they can do is keep listing and categorizing symptoms and prescribe various drugs. If you?re starting to feel like a guinea pig in a lab experiment, you might be suffering from IBS.
Because western medicine is only ?a practice,? many people are misdiagnosed or told that it?s all in their imagination.
Here are 4 common IBS misdiagnosis:
???? Lactose intolerance
???? Celiac disease
???? Other infectious diseases
Irritable Bowel Syndrome has no infective agent, that?s why so many people are falsely accused of having a mental disorder . . .
The most reasonable evidence I have found suggests that IBS is an immune system imbalance. A closer look at IBS reveals definite biochemical changes that verify there is an underlying cause.
Here are 4 risk factors for Irritable Bowel Syndrome:
1.??? 80% of IBS sufferers are women
2.??? Age group 13 to 40 years old
3.??? Traumatic stress
Your immune system depends on a healthy digestive system and vice versa. Your entire digestive system is lined with more nerve endings than your brain. In fact the digestive system is often referred to as the second brain. In other words every ?part? of your body depends on you having a healthy digestive system.
Thousands of people are finding relief from IBS symptoms and the causes of acid reflux by addressing the entire body from the gut level using natural remedies.
So if you want to be part of a medical experiment continue trying different drugs. But if you are interested in trusting your body?s own healing center . . . why not try a safe natural way to cure IBS while strengthening and nurturing your immune system?
