Irritable Bowel Syndrome: there is relief
For those many who are suffering with this, I hope this might help. Getting healthy is something I've been working on for a while now, and with a family member who has many health issues, I think this is a serious consideration.
IBS contributes to brain fog, metabolic disease, chronic fatigue plus a host of other degenerative diseases. Statistically speaking, IBS affects 10 -15% of the population and, according to conventional health experts 'there is no cure'. Well, that's a lie and natural solutions are available."
~Jonathan Landsman of Natural News
The symptoms that let you know you are likely suffering from irritable bowel syndrome are:
a history of antibotic usage
unexplained joint pain
inability to concentrate
loss of appetite
frequency of illness due to a compromised immune system
IBS contributs to several degenerative diseases such as chronic fatigue, metabolic disease, and even brain fog.
You need to heal your gut. Pure and simple.
Landsman tells us, "Normally speaking, our gut is loaded with trillions of microscopic organisms that create a natural ecosystem called the "gut flora". When this inner terrain gets out of balance from consuming too many toxins and being malnourished - chronic gut inflammation will threaten your health."
How do you do rebuild your gut?
Its what you eat and don't eat.
Don't indulge in over-processed junk food which has a lot of chemical preservatives and lacks in nutrients, and avoid genetically-engineered corn, soy, and other GMO by-products like high fructose corn syrup and alcohol.
Do eat whole foods rich in vitamins and minerals. He suggests (as have others) that eating small daily amounts of fermented foods and drinks like sauerkraut or kombucha. Also, load up on raw or at most slightly steamed vegetables, small amounts of fruit and freshly-prepared organic juices and smoothies.
