Symptoms Of Poor Digestion (IBS)
- Frequent bowel movements (more than 2 a day)
- Constipation alternating with loose stools
- Stomach/lower abdominal pain
- Reflux or Heartburn
- Sudden inability to tolerate foods you’ve always eaten
- Foul taste in mouth
- Loose stools/diarrhea
- Floating stools
- Food pieces in stool
Normally, when we eat and drink, we really shouldn't hear from our food again, until we have to use the restroom. A little gas here and there is normal, but constant bloating, frequent BMs (more than 2 a day), constipation (missing at least 1 day) and other digestive symptoms are not!
Natural Remedies For IBS
The first order of business in treating IBS is identifying and removing food sensitivities. You don’t need more fiber; you need to stop eating food that bothers your gut! You can test for food sensitivities using our food sensitivity test, right at home.
Soothe The GI Tract
Clearly with IBS, the digestive tract is ‘irritated’. There are a number of natural remedies for IBS to calm it down.
- Rhizinate is amazing! It’s great for soothing the stomach and intestines. Rhizinate contains DGL, a safe form of licorice root.
- Glutamine repairs any areas of the GI tract that are damaged. It helps to quickly heal up irritated tissues.
- GI Encap contains several herbs that are calming and soothing to the GI tract.
- HLC probiotics are some of the most potent probiotics available. An important natural treatment for IBS, probiotics restore balance to an irritated GI tract, and have been clinically shown to improve symptoms of IBS.
- Digestive Formula provides the correct balance of digestive enzymes to ensure complete digestion. Incompletely digested food is a major culprit in IBS.
- Mediclear is a powerful nutritional support for inflammation, allergies, detoxification and gastrointestinal health. It’s packed with nutrients making it an ideal natural IBS treatment.
By identifying and removing food sensitivities, and regularly using a probiotic and digestive enzymes, it's possible to lessen the severity of typical IBS symptoms. Further care may be needed if and when flare ups occur.
