Irritable Bowel effects many people of many different ages. It can effect men, woman, children and the elderly. It can start effecting your health from day 1 (the first day you are born) or be triggered by something and start hurting your life at any time.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a functional disorder of the bowel, which is also known as the large intestine. It is not a disease. It is called a “syndrome” because there are several symptoms within the disorder. IBS may also be called “spastic colon”, “spastic colitis”, “nervous stomach”, or “mucous colitis”. The functional part of the condition interferes with the normal movement of food and waste material in the body. If food isn’t digested and eliminated properly, toxins and mucous can build up in the intestines. This build up can produce gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea and/or constipation.
Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome can vary from person to person. One person may have hard stools which cause cramping, and pain when they are finally able to have a bowel movement. Other people have frequent stools that are loose and watery. These people usually get an urgent need to eliminate. And other people rotate irregularly between constipation and diarrhea.
Causes of Irritable Bowel:Very often the “functional” condition is actually being caused by a real problem that can be identified with our stool test. Some of the causes of IBS which our test can identify are deficiencies of beneficial bacteria that can contribute to an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, leaky gut, yeast overgrowth, parasites or worms. Other causes may be low digestive enzymes, colon inflammation caused by food intolerance’s, low pH, occult blood & more.

Antibiotics and Irritable Bowel Symptoms: One cause of Irritable Bowel is an overuse of antibiotics. Antibiotics kill the harmful bacteria and the good bacteria from the body. This can lead to an imbalance in the microflora of the bowel. This imbalance can result in harmful bacteria and yeast overgrowth in the intestines. If the overgrowth is severe, it may cause problems with digestion and absorption of food, which can cause deficiencies of vitamins and minerals- hence a malnourished state of the body!
