What is irritable bowel syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome* (IBS) is a “syndrome,”
meaning a group of symptoms. The most common
symptoms of IBS are abdominal pain or discomfort
often reported as cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea,
and/or constipation. IBS affects the colon, or large
bowel, which is the part of the digestive tract that
IBS is not a disease. It’s a
functional disorder, meaning that the bowel doesn’t
work, or function, correctly.
The patients get abdominal pain suddenly after
eating, the pain may be accompanied by abdominal
swelling, this swelling can cause severe pain. In
our own studies at Nanotech we have found the
swelling is only present in external abdominal
muscles and completely relived by external abdominal
trigger point injection. Not temporary this
injection results in a long term improvement.
The bouts of alternate diarrhea and constipation
will respond to medication described in our e-book
"the flame within". Knowledge is power.
What causes IBS?
CDPUSA in collaboration with
Nanotech has studied a group of patients
and we think IBS is caused by stress triggered
inflammatory disorder. The nerves and muscles in the
bowel appear to be extra sensitive in people with
IBS. Muscles may contract too much when you eat.
These contractions can cause cramping and diarrhea
during or shortly after a meal. Or the nerves may
react when the bowel stretches, causing cramping or
pain. We have seen IBS in patients with

reduce the constipation associated with IBS because
it makes stool soft and easier to pass. However,
some people with IBS who have more sensitive nerves
may feel a bit more abdominal discomfort after
adding more fiber to their diet. Fiber is found in
foods such as breads, cereals, beans, fruits, and
Examples of foods with fiber include
Fruits Vegetables Breads, cereals, and beans
apples peaches broccoli (raw) cabbage
(raw) peas kidney beans lima beans
bread whole-grain cereal
Add foods with fiber to
your diet a little at a time to let your body get
used to them. Too much fiber at once can cause gas,
which can trigger symptoms in a person with IBS.
Your doctor may ask you to add more fiber to your
diet by taking a fiber pill or drinking water mixed
with a special high-fiber powder.
Eat small meals.
Large meals can cause cramping and diarrhea
in people with IBS. If this happens to you, try eating four or five
small meals a day instead of less-frequent big meals.
