Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms tend to be primarily urgent diarrhea along with stomach bloating and excessive gas. Loose bowel movements are indicative of intestinal inflammation. IBS is not caused by food- but an IBS diet is best to follow until you actually get it fixed. This diet would be low fiber. Remember – you cannot eat your way into or out of any inflammatory bowel disease –
You don’t have to live with colitis symptoms like chronic and urgent diarrhea. You don’t have to live with the fear of colitis flare-ups. There is a colitis cure. There really is. Colitis is not a disease. It is a manmade “condition.” It is created by the ingestion of certain common drugs- that are not only prescribed- but have now become prevalent in our food supply.
A question I get from most every client of mine is ‘what do I eat?’ I understand the confusion as people naturally assume that there must be a different diet for each different inflammatory bowel condition. The reason for this confusion is that we have all been given the wrong information. We have been told that these are all separate and distinctly different conditions which are diseases and therefore must require different treatments.
Diarrhea is the single symptom that all inflammatory bowel conditions have in common. Also although it is not an inflammatory bowel condition c-difficile which is a bacterial infection causes terrible diarrhea which is often misdiagnosed as IBS and it is easily fixable.
When looking for cures for diarrhea people are typically directed to try OTC medications such as Imodium or to eat some kind of low residue diet.
I want to emphasize that Crohn’s is not a disease and neither are any of the other supposed inflammatory bowel diseases. They are manmade conditions. We have done this to ourselves. The supposition is that these are auto-immune diseases where the immune system for some unknown reason attacks our GI tract.
Clostridium Difficile otherwise known as c-diff is not an inflammatory bowel disease. However it does share their most common symptom which is persistent diarrhea. This is a side effect of having taken antibiotics which has a negative impact on the bowel and compromises the immune system. This opens the door to infection which opens the door to another antibiotic.
There are a lot of questions concerning inflammatory bowel conditions. I don’t blame you if you are scared to death after leaving your doctor’s office. Lot’s of mumbo-jumbo. It is often true that if you go to 2-3 doctors that you will get 2-3 different opinions. It should not be sooooo complicated.
