April is IBS awareness month

IBS stands for Irritable bowel syndrome and this April is awareness month. Its a difficult condition for people to talk about so they often suffer for some time before seeking help. Symptoms can be varied or changeable but tend to include constipation, diarrhoea, bloating that comes and goes and pain. It is thought that about 15% of the population suffers from IBS. It is a long term condition that is sometimes referred to as a brain-gut disorder and there can be many different reasons behind the condition. It is very important to see a medical practitioner about this condition to rule out any other more serious illness.
There are varied treatment options and you might be advised to try an elimination low FODMAP diet or try different medications.
Many people find IBS can be caused by stress or anxiety and set off by difficult life events so relaxation and hypnotherapy is a very effective natural treatment that is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence or NICE.
