How to Live with Irritable Bowel Syndrome

irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects an estimated 10 to 15 percent of the American population. That’s more than 1 in 10.  So if you have it, you’re certainly not alone.

The tricky thing about IBS is that it has so many different symptoms: some get diarrhea, others get constipation.  Some get cramps, others don’t. This can make it hard to diagnose IBS correctly.

If you have any of the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome the first action is to rule out any other conditions that can be confused with IBS.  Get tested for food allergies, celiac and dairy in particular. Avoid all foods you are allergic to – cut them right out of your diet.  Try the auto-immune Paleo diet for three months and see if it makes a difference to your condition.

If you’ve had digestive system problems for some time, it’s likely that your balance of intestinal flora is out of whack. Start with taking a good probiotic supplement to remedy this.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

IBS can lead to what is called a “leaky gut’.  This is when the intestinal lining becomes porous and larger holes develop that allow food particles and other “bad stuff” (yeast, toxins, and all other forms of waste) that your body normally doesn’t allow through, to flow freely into your bloodstream.  Your body launches into a fight to deal with these “foreign bodies” and eventually your immune system kicks in in an attempt to deal with the problem.

If you suspect you might have a leaky gut, start by avoiding any and all foods that trigger your responses. Try the Auto-Immune Paleo Diet for three months and see if it relieves your symptoms. Balance your intestinal flora by taking an excellent live probiotic.

If this does not handle the problem, find a doctor who does a leaky gut repair program.


Editors Note:

Perma-Clear–  Is best for leaky gut. Use along with diet and other support in RepairVite program as it contains Lactobacillus Sporogenes other wise known as Bacillus Coagulans.

 Studies show that Bacillus coagulans is highly effective in treating bacterial TD, travelers’ diarrhea. TD is prevalent in Americans visiting the Middle East, Asia, Latin America and Africa. It’s the colony of B coagulans that kills off the harmful bacteria. A healthy colony of B. coagulans can take a while to populate, so as a preventative measure begin taking your supplement a week or two prior, plus during and 1 week after your visit. Low stomach acid makes you more vulnerable to TD so avoid taking anti-acids while in those countries.

In the same way that B. coagulans kills harmful bacteria it also kills off other harmful pathogens like Candida albicans. This is because B. coagulans is not as vulnerable to being killed off by the bad guys or inhospitable environmental conditions as other lactic acid probiotics like acidophilus. In healthy people colonies of lactic acid probiotics are naturally found on healthy skin, scalp, vagina, mouth and the digestive tract.

In addition to TD, studies show that bacillus coagulans are effective at treating diarrhea caused by antibiotics and virus. It’s frequently used in the treatment of candida, IBS, IBD, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and ulcers. It enhances immune function, digestion and preliminary studies show that it may be helpful in cancer prevention.

The metabolites of B. coagulans (produces them) includes natural anti-inflammatories, enzymes, and vitamins.
