Our gut health is strongly connected with our mind. Homeopathy, being a mind-body medicine may help in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.
The common conditions seen in irritable bowel persons are:
- Cramps or pain in abdomen
- Constipation -stools may be hard and dry
- Diarrhoea -frequent loose stools
- Alternating diarrhoea and constipation
- Mucus in the stool
- Your bowels may feel like-haven’t been completely emptied.
- Your abdomen may look and feel bloated
- Feeling of fullness or nauseous after eating few mouthfuls.
These issues can come and go – you may not have any issues for months and then have a sudden flare-up. Symptoms may vary from person to person.
There are several causes for this issue. Increased squeezing of the muscles of bowel wall, increased sensitivity to pain from inside the bowel, inflammation of bowel, such as gastroenteritis, a decrease in the amount of gut flora and bile dysfunction can alter or change normal functioning of your gastric system.
There are a lot of remedies in homeopathy, which have the main action upon the digestive system, when we use according to homeopathic principles and in the traditional way.
Diet is very important in the treatment of IBS. The diet that will work best for you will depend on your symptoms and how you react to different types of foods. People with IBS are often advised to modify the amount of fiber in their diet. There are two main types of fibre-
SOLUBLE FIBER-– which the body can digest- examples are oats, barley, rye, fruits such as bananas and apples, carrots and potatoes
INSOLUBLE FIBER – which the body cannot digest. Foods that contain insoluble fiber include—wholegrain bread, bran, cereals nuts and seeds (except golden linseed).
If you have IBS with diarrhoea, you may find it helps to cut down on the INSOLUBLE FIBER you eat.
If you have IBS with constipation, increasing the amount of SOLUBLE FIBRE in your diet and the amount of water you drink may help.
Other simple diet and life style changes may also help-
Eat regular meals
Try to limit your intake of caffeinated drinks, such as tea and coffee, alcohol or fizzy drinks
Try to limit your intake of processed foods. These may contain Resistant Starch that is difficult for your body to digest. If you have diarrhoea, you may wish to cut out artificial sweeteners like Sorbitol. This is commonly used in some sugar-free sweets, diet products and artificial drinks.
Low FODMAPS diet may help in some people. FODMAPS – Fructo Oligosaccharides’, Disaccharides, Monosaccharide’s, and Polyols – are compounds found in certain foods. High FODMAPS foods are Garlic, Onions, beetroot, Savoy cabbage, celery, sweet corn, apples, pears, mango, watermelon, legumes, pulses, rye, wheat-containing bread etc, you will get a big list from Google. Cutting down on these may help the symptoms of IBS.
