What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?


Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may begin after an infection, stress, or onset of maturity without any other medical indicators, and may also be related to chronic pain, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. It is also regarded as a chronic illness and can dramatically affect the quality of life. Due to often unsatisfactory results from medical treatments for IBS up to fifty percent of people turn to alternative and complementary medicine or integrative medicine.

How will we determine if I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Dr. Cohen has successfully treated patients with IBS using a range of integrative techniques. Treatments such as probiotic supplements, dietary supplements and breathing techniques can promote the growth of good bacteria in your gut, relieve localized inflammation, decrease cramping, reduce incidence of diarrhea and reduce spasms and pain associated with IBS.
