Treatment For IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome London

The London Gastro Clinic offers treatment for IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome using natural medicine. IBS is the most common gastro-intestinal disorder reported to GPs and up to 50% of referrals to gastroenterologists are for IBS. It has been clinically proven that stress has a lot to do with this unpleasant complaint and there are often underlying problems in the digestive tract as well.

treatment for IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Most of the patients seen at the London Gastro Clinic have had problems with their digestive system for many years. They have continually asked the question - What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome and is there treatment for IBS? They have usually done the rounds of GP and gastroenterologists, been given only temporary relief with symptomatic treatment and their problems still persist. The Gastro Clinic's approach to the treatment for IBS is to identify the underlying problem, which is fueling the IBS. Patients have non-invasive medical tests to assist with the diagnosis of the underlying problem. Herbal Medicine along with dietary modification is usually very effective at treating this condition, attaining a very high rate of clinical success.

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS?

Patients may suffer recurrent abdominal pain, allergies and severe bloating with diarrhoea and/or constipation.

There are usually loud bowel sounds, which can be embarrassing. Patients can experience nausea and be very windy. There is usually quite a dip in energy as well, with patients feeling tired a lot of the time.

What is the treatment for IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Depending on the medical test results, a herbal prescription is formulated and dispensed to meet the patient's unique needs. Every patient's experience of IBS is different so a prescription tailored to the patient's condition works far better than a one-size-fits-all approach. As mentioned earlier, stress is very significant in the aggravation of IBS. It is therefore important to adjust lifestyle to allow for relaxation and to support the nervous system with Herbal Medicine. Patients are often surprised at how effective the herbal treatment for IBS is. This is an inflammatory condition so it is very important to address the source of the inflammation rather than merely mask the symptoms.

On average, it takes around 6-8 weeks to start noticing an improvement and treatment continues until the patient is symptom free and the underlying issues resolved. Diet is an important part of the treatment and dietary guidance is given to support the treatment and aid recovery. .

If you feel you could benefit from this natural approach to treatment for your IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, call for an appointment.
