Irritable Bowel / Digestive Issues

About 20% of all New Zealanders have Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Strictly speaking IBS is not a disease but rather a group of symptoms often managed through diet, stress management and supplementation. This condition is unpleasant and bothersome but does not result in lasting damage to the intestinal tissues or increase the risk of intestinal cancer. It is very important, however, to make sure that other illnesses, which can cause similar symptoms, can be ruled out. This is where DP Herbals can guide you.

IBS causes symptoms of nausea, abdominal pain with usually “alternating” constipation and/or diarrhoea. Other complaints often include bloating and excessive wind and there is nothing more frustrating than clothes feeling tighter as the day goes on!

Research on the importance of good digestive health is being conducted by Harvard Medical school recognising a need to maintain healthy digestion. “A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected — so intimately that they should be viewed as one system…” http://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/the-gut-brain-connection.
