|What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) ?
IBS stands for “Irritable Bowel Syndrome.” It is the most common digestive disorder by far and it
is included in the category called Inflammatory Bowel Disorders or IBDs.
IBS can occur anywhere along the six feet of our colon which is divided almost equally in length
into three distinct sections; the ascending colon on our right side, the transverse colon which
crosses right to left across our abdomen a few inches above our navel, and the descending
colon on our left side. The last foot or so of our descending colon is called the sigmoid colon.
Most of the symptoms related to IBS seem to occur in the sigmoid colon, but it can occur
anywhere inside the colon.
In my experience, IBS is the name doctors will give to a digestive disorder that does not fit neatly
into any other category; like Constipation, Acid Reflux, Colitis, etc.
Like all other digestive disorders it is completely correctable and easily prevented from future
occurrences. If and only if you eliminate the root causes and if and only if you become more
proactive (vigilant-mindful) in your own self-care. My book, Healing Digestive Illness will teach
you how to do this. If you want specific step by step guidance and detailed personalized
instructions contact me directly.
