Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, can be effectively treated with Naturopathic Medicine, according to Dr. Tamara Trebilcock, ND, in a new video just released by Larry Cook, author of The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living.
Online PR News – 06-October-2010 – – IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome) is a condition associated with chronic abdominal pain and abdominal dysfunction. There can be many causes related to diet: eating food too quickly, not eating the right kinds of food or not eating frequently enough. There can be a dysfunction in the brain’s chemical messengers – called neurotransmitters – that regulate how the nervous system operates in the digestive tract. And hormonal imbalances can also play a role.
Naturopathic Medicine is a type of alternative medicine that seeks to figure out, and then treat, root causes of chronic health problems, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Dr. Trebilcock says, “When I treat IBS, I look into treating the cause while addressing the acute symptoms.”
There are four phases to her Naturopathic Medicine treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome:
1) Eliminate infection and inflammation,
2) Heal the digestive tract,
3) Support the neurotransmitters and hormones, and
4) Help the immune system to function properly.
Dr. Trebilcock’s alternative medicine treatment begins with a fundamental change in diet. She says, “I recommend a nutrient-dense diet. The best way to get nutrient-dense foods into your diet is to eat whole organic foods and to avoid processed foods.” She also prescribes stress reduction techniques, contrast hydrotherapy, supplements, nutrients, botanical medicines and herbs to help the body heal on its own.
Does natural medicine treatment work for her patients? Says Trebilcock, “For patients who follow my protocol, I have a very high success rate. Within two to four months, most patients’ symptoms are resolved, and if they’ve been on any anti-anxiety medication, they’ve been able to go off of that too.”
