Irritable bowel, ulcers, constipation, and bloating affect many millions of Americans.
Traditional Medical Approach
Prescriptions for unnecessary antacids are alarming. Television ads contribute to the over usage and sometimes harmful, excessive prescription usage of this class of drugs. Irritable bowel patients are given antispasmodics and tranquilizers. Each patient gets a standard recipe of drugs instead of a careful examination of a specific cause. Many patients are told to “just relax.”
My Alternative / Homeopathic Medicine Approach
We do food allergy testing. We look for sensitivities to different foods which can cause symptoms. We try to identify them and eliminate the foods as necessary. We also look for heavy metal poisoning. Mercury, aluminium, cadmium, and other metals can cause GI symptoms. We remove these metals.
There are many natural supplementals to help relieve GI symptoms, acidophilus, peppermint oil, and aloe vera are examples of some helpful products.
Candida of the Bowel
Candida of the bowel is not recognized by the conventional physician. The treatment of this yeast often results in a dramatic decrease of gastrointestinal symptoms.
