Mailbag! Hey Doc….I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and I‘m sick of taking all the meds. What’s the cure?

70% of our immune system is in our GUT!  So it should come as no surprise that what we eat and how well we digest and absorb the food has a direct affect on how well our bodies use the fuel we consume.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the name commonly used for a wide range of conditions associated with our GUT.  Typically, mainstream medicine treats symptoms by prescribing myriad of prescription meds that not only don’t cure IBS, but often irritates the gut lining which leads to more painful side effects.

If you suffer from any gastrointestinal issues, do yourself a favor and learn from Dr. Sean…

  1. What is IBS and how does it show up in our system  (e.g. bloating, distension, gas)
  2. How does our GI Track and our bowels impact our immune system?
  3. What can you do to lessen the discomfort?

In Dr. Sean’s world he starts by running an Integrated Urinalysis Panel (IUP) on every patient. This tells him how well the body digesting foods and absorbing nutrients?  With an IUP, it tells us how the body is using  the food

In the meantime until you run an IUP,  here are short term fixes:

  • Look at overall diet
  • Chew your food well
  • Regulate with Fiber Supplement (Speed up with fiber + water, Slow it down with less water).

If you want to get off meds & cure a bowel problem start with identifying the cause through an Integrated Urinalysis Panel.

To see is to know, to NOT see is to guess!  STOP guessing why you have IBS.  Run an Integrated Urinalysis Panel to find the cause and cure the problem!
