You need to keep your gut clean by eating the right food. Please avoid gluten, sugar and dairy products. In most cases, these are the biggest culprits. Avoid packaged foods as they are laden with chemicals & preservatives. Also avoid non-veg foods as they are difficult-to-digest. Eat simple, easy-to-digest nutritious foods that don’t put pressure on your digestive system – fruits & veggies. Read more on whole plant based natural foods here. Understand concepts of raw and fresh foods, and that will help you identify the changes you need to bring in to your overall food and lifestyle.

Each body is different, so you have to figure out what has triggered IBS for you. Stress is often a key reason for IBS. Try to calm down, relax & do meditation. Don’t over think & over react. Just focus on yourself, do things that make you happy, pursue your hobbies. Start journaling - at the end of each day, write one good thing that happened with you during the day.

IBS is an intestinal disorder causing pain in the stomach, wind, diarrhoea and / or constipation. These symptoms occur over a long period of time, often years. But these are just symptoms & not the root cause. Broadly speaking, you must remember that the body is out of balance & hence sending you these signals to take corrective action. All that is needed for its healing is rest – mental & digestive. Body heals best when it is in rest mode.  

For mental rest, do yoga, meditation, sit in the sun, keep yourself positively engaged.

For digestive rest – Eat only when hungry. Have fruits & veggies, nimboo paani, coconut water. Avoid outside food, junk food, alcohol, refined sugar, white salt, refined oil, packaged foods. Also avoid grains, dairy, non-veg as they are difficult-to-digest. For me personally, giving up dairy products healed me of this condition.

Make sure to sleep on time everyday atleast by 10 p.m

Often eating fruits & veggies will accelerate your healing process, but you might interpret it as worsening of your situation due to aggravated symptoms. Hence, get in touch with a natural health practitioner to hand hold you through this process.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a gastrointestinal disorder characterized by the presence of a cramping, abdominal pain, increased gas, altered bowel habits, food intolerance, and bloating (distention). IBS occurs due to stress, accumulated toxic material in the body due to wrong lifestyle.

Some lifestyle changes and dietary modifications are the first treatments to treat IBS. There are several types of foods in particular that often trigger characteristic symptoms and signs.

Advised to avoid:

  • Milk and Milk products
  • Avoid Non vegetarian
  • Certain vegetables that increase gas (such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts) and legumes.
  • Fatty/oily or fried foods
  • Alcohol, caffeine, or soda
  • Packed preserved food/drinks.
  • Foods high in sugars
  • Artificial sweeteners

Advised to follow:

  • Drink more water.
  • Consume more fruits and vegetables to improve your GUT.
  • Eliminate toxin from body by Eliminative Juice fasting under the guidance of Naturopathy Physician.
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals.
  • Chew food well and take your time to help digest your meals. It’s better to let your teeth and saliva break down your food slowly than to wash it down with water or other drinks.
  • Ginger. This pungent plant can ease your nausea and make your stomach feel better. It may help calm inflammation in your gut, or even make your stomach lining stronger. Add fresh ginger in meals or make ginger tea by grating the root into hot water, then drain and add honey for sweetness.
  • To improve elimination and gut health take cold abdominal mud pack. (mud pack to eye to reduce stress).
  • Acupressure and foot reflexology also helpful.
  • Do regular breathing exercises, relaxation techniques, Yogasanas, pranayama, and meditation to reduce stress.
  • Exercise regularly

 

Namasthe!

Irritable bowel syndrome as the name indicates, is caused when the colon is lined with rotting waste, unwanted bacteria and foods that was not digested properly in the stomach and before coming into the colon. The causes still remains the same - foods such as dairy eggs, gluten, meat, seafood consumed over a long period of time with heavy fats and proteins that weakens the bile and the hydro chloric acid in the gut. With weaker stomach acids and and ineffective weak bile, the food does not to get digested properly and leaks into the intestine while the pathogens feed on them . Overtime it reaches the colon which is the final dumping ground. This causes inflammation, pains constipation, diarrhoea and can also result in piles, fissures and yeast infections on the excretory organs.

 

To heal this condition., It is best that you start cleaning the  GUT, which in turn will clean the liver, which in turn will be ready to absorb and deliver nutrients throughout the body and eventually cleaning the intestine as well.  If the previous organs in the process have done their job, the colon will not have to take a hit. it’s very important that the liver starts doing its job to heal any kind of intestinal issues/organs of excretion so that the unwanted food , pathogens and heavy metals doesn’t end up in the intestines and colon. Ideally these are supposed to thrown out naturally after altering its state, but when they end up as-is, they attract more issues in the colon which the colon might not be geared up to do 

 

When body organs are clean, they do their job perfectly well. With a right lifestyle this can be achieved . You must switch to a low fat plant based lifestyle. Low fat here because fats also come in low % from raw foods like fruits vegetables and greens. 

 

  1. Give rest to the colon by juicing majorly for few days with green fruit or veg juices only in abundance like it’s your meal. 
  2. Take water enema for a month without interfering with your normal bowel movements 
  3. Stop the consumption of dairy eggs meat seafood
  4. Stop all forms of fats ( oils , grease , nuts seeds ) that will add load to an already compromised liver
  5. Stop all forms of foods that are purchased
  6. Go raw on greens, fruits majorly for one full month/ 2 months as conditions improve
  7. Cooked food post that has to be only once a day without using oils or ghee with 30% grains that are gluten free and oilfree, unpolished, unrefined 
  8. Wheat and foods with maida wheat has to be avoided 
  9. Sugar and processed sweetners avoided 
  10. Place a cold wet towel daily on the abdomen for 30 mins. Start with 5 mins hot towel and 25 mins cold
  11. Exposure to sunlight for 30 mins
  12. Practice mental peace, leading a stress free life, free of any form of negativity
