Symptoms of IBS

If you have IBS then you know the unpleasantness of the symptoms. Here are some of the most recognizable:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Alternating between constipation and diarrhea
  • Gas and/or bloating
  • Mucus in stool
  • Pain that may be relieved by a bowel movement
  • Urge to move bowels, but unable to do so 

No matter which way you look at it, knowing your symptoms is not enough to find relief. Symptoms are only guideposts. You must find what is causing your IBS in order to get sustainable results.

Find the Cause 

It is often said “there is no cure for IBS”, which leaves a person afflicted with IBS feeling hopeless. 

Our experience however, with thousands of patients from Chico  Redding and Northern California, shows that dietary modification, improving digestion and stimulating neurological pathways to digestive organs can become a virtual cure for 90 percent of  IBS suffers.
