Irritable Bowel Syndrome Info

“The tuba is certainly the most intestinal of instruments, the very lower bowel of music.”

Peter De Vries

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS, alternatively referred to as a “spastic colon” disease) is an illness characterised by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and inconsistent of bowel habits. As a functional bowel disorder, IBS is strongly linked to overactive nervous system and adrenals in response to ongoing stress.

Diarrhoea and/or constipation usually alternate in IBS. Several different health conditions may present themselves as IBS, including coeliac disease, fructose mal-absorption, mild infections, parasitic infections, several inflammatory bowel diseases, bile acid mal-absorption, functional chronic constipation, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and chronic functional abdominal pain.

The primary symptoms of IBS are abdominal pain and discomfort together with frequent diarrhoea or constipation and a change in bowel habits. There may also be urgency for bowel movements, a feeling of incomplete evacuation, bloating, or abdominal distension.

In some cases, the symptoms are relieved by bowel movements. People with IBS, more commonly than others, have gastro-oesophageal reflux, symptoms relating to the genitourinary system, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, backache and psychiatric symptoms such as depression and anxiety.

Treatments for IBS aim to both relieve symptoms and resolve the underlying stressors.  Identifying food allergies or intolerances, dietary changes, restoring healthy body biochemistry, therapy or counselling for emotional and psychological issues and flower essence remedies are all good options to include in a treatment plan. The nervous system, adrenals, liver and gastrointestinal tract all need medicinal herbs, supportive minerals and other nutrients to help relax and balance this hypersensitive system. There are natural health remedies which may help alleviate the symptoms of IBS. Most of these are based on balancing the system with herbs, nutrients and minerals that may be lacking.

Product Reviews

  • Nature's Sunshine LBS II


    I surrendered and invested in LBS II Natures Sunshine. I say investment because they have improved my overall digestion and health. It was over 2.5 years ago a naturopath introduced them to me and said I may need to be a person who has to stay on them for life. I used them for a while then I stopped. Everything was balancing out by changes in my choices of food but I mostly stopped, due to the stigma I had built up in my own mind, around taking a pill. Sometimes we have to surrender to the stigmas we build up within our own minds, because they are the untruths. It's the best choice I've made. Good on you Nature's Sunshine. This remedy works with your body rather than forcing it into motion. Leaves you feeling brand new. God Bless.



  • Works like magic!


    I've had IBD/Ulcerative Colitis on and off for the last twenty years. I tried Go Probiotic 75 billion last year and after just one day ,I felt that I'd found a miracle cure. Since then I've had the best regulated bowels in town!. I'm not quite brave enough to stop taking my medication, but for the first time in over twenty years, my bowel feels completely normal. Highly recommended!



  • This was recommended by my sister, who suffers from Lupus


    and it seems to work very well. I've been on it for about six months and my IBS problems are almost non-existent.
