Gaining Control over IBS and Taking CONTROL BACK over your LIFE!
IBS causes a HUGE disruption in daily life and can be very debilitating for many people, and often people have gone to see a family doctor or specialist and been told their is ‘nothing anatomically wrong’ and that they ‘don’t need to worry.’ However well-meaning this advice may have been, it leads to people who suffer from IBS to LOSE HOPE that they are going to get well and it can be very stressful and DEPRESSING! Irritable bowel Syndrome is a chronic type of functional abdominal pain. Functional abdominal pain means that there are no imaging tests or blood tests to see with the eye or under a microscope if you were to look at the gut lining, any ‘anatomical’ reason to explain the symptoms of IBS. It is the function of the gut that is disturbed, but because it is more subtle than the ‘tools’ of modern diagnostics in western medicine, it is often called a functional illness, or a kind of functional abdominal pain.
