Introduction
Everyone has an upset stomach from time to time.You probably know the sort of thing I mean – sometimes you’ve got gasand at other times you feel queasy or nauseous. There may be timeswhen you can’t seem to go to the toilet for days, constipated as can be,but there are other days when diarrhea strikes and you can’t stopgoing!Although we all know that there are some foods or drinks that mightprompt our digestive system to react in a certain way – a big meal of very spicy food sends many people scurrying to the bathroom forexample – the only really predictable thing about our digestive systemis its unpredictability.However, because for most of us our digestive system acts the way weexpect it to most of the time, we don’t really give a great deal of thought to what our colon and gastrointestinal system is doing unless itis ‘misbehaving’.This is not the case for everyone however. A surprisingly high number –some reports suggest that it could be as many as one in five US citizens– suffers from a chronic condition called Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)and for these people, what their digestive system is doing can oftendictate what they do too.As with the majority of non-life threatening medical conditions, thereare essentially two ways that you can deal with IBS.Option one is to visit your doctor or other medical care professional, geta prescribed pharmaceutical medicine and take it. This option might bean effective way of managing your condition but as with manypharmaceutical situations and the drugs related to them, you have toconsider the side effects before deciding whether this approach to IBS isthe right one for you.The second alternative is to do things the natural way, dealing withyour condition using only treatment methods and substances that inmany examples have been used for hundreds and thousands of years.Hence, whilst I will highlight some medicines that your doctor is likely toprescribe for IBS and the possible adverse consequences of using them,the main focus of this book is very firmly fixed on giving you all theinformation you could ever need about dealing with IBS 100% naturally.In doing this, the idea is to encourage you to at least try to handleirritable bowel syndrome naturally before turning to chemical-based
