Why IBS?

Having lived with IBS throughout my life, I decided it was time to provide a website that truly helped with this deeply affecting disorder.   IBS has become a ridiculously broad term for digestive disorders.  Only really Crohn’s and Coeliacs and Colitis have been clearly defined in terms of symptoms and causality. Almost all other digestive disorders have been lumped together as IBS.  Symptoms as disparate as diarrhoea and constipation have been grouped together under the misleading IBS banner.


This in turn increases the difficulty of finding the right treatment.  If no major or obvious disorder is discovered after thorough medical examination the likelihood is that the doctor will pull out the IBS card.  The digestive process is spectacularly complex and any one of hundreds of bodily functions could be at fault in creating your problems however not enough is known to be able to isolate your personal often unique problems. Too often the treatments offered could be likened to putting your ankle in plaster, to deal with a broken elbow.


Few of us are lucky enough to have a doctor who specializes in digestion and therefore most of us receive advice which whilst well intentioned is often wrong.   More and more information is being discovered regarding diet and digestion as there is a growing appreciation of the importance of the body’s core, its engine.  Despite the fact that physicians such as Dr. F.X. Mayr began preaching about the importance of diet in the late nineteenth century, it has only been in the last twenty years that the effects of diet on health and performance have been accepted en mass.


IBS-Health.com is a website and company that aims to seek solutions for the individual as opposed to suggesting that one cure suits all.  There are many principals which can be adopted by most people however the key feature of IBS-Health.com and its sister clinic site, is its dedication to helping and it’s recognition of the individual.


This will be the first of many posts on this subject, and we hope that our blogs and website and upcoming book will help as many people as possible.
