An Inflammatory Bowel Disorder can ruin your life. Anyone who suffers from any kind of chronic bowel disorder will know this to be true.
Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, and so on, can create symptoms of bloating, stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, and much more.
Many people who come to our site are desperate and struggling with chronic GI disorders and symptoms: they’re frustrated with a medical system that consistently fails the very people it should be helping.
Doctors have a habit of treating symptoms of a gut-related disorder, or a diagnosis. The common denominator with most gut-related disorders is autoimmunity and/or inflammation – meaning that your immune system is destroying your own tissues.
Generally, medical treatments revolve around immune suppressive drugs to shut down the immune system and harsh medications in order to reduce inflammation.
Unfortunately, these drugs can cause significant side effects and we believe they may actually create the same issues you’re taking them for! Surgery is performed to remove the damaged tissue when the damage is severe.
The second glaring problem is that often little is ever done to identify the CAUSE of your symptoms or disorder. Medicine puts so much emphasis on naming the disorder that identifying the cause is never addressed.
Your symptoms, while problematic for you, are not the real problem. What is causing your symptoms IS the problem. You must identify the CAUSE of your symptoms or disorder if you ever hope to improve your health and the quality of your life.
