IBS Treatment: IBS is Not an Auto-Immune Disease:

IBS Treatment: IBS is Not an Auto-Immune Disease Dr. Albert Snow Holistic Gastroenterologist

PowerPoint Presentation:

IBS treatment should not be centered on treating an auto-immune disease .

PowerPoint Presentation:

IBS, as well as Crohn's disease, leaky gut syndrome, and colitis are not auto-immune diseases.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The associated symptoms that people experience with these disorders are a reaction of the immune system, but it is not the cause.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea and the presence of blood and mucous in the stool has its root cause in another area.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Although you may be diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, a doctor will typically not be able to explain its cause to you.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The truth is that this condition is easily explained. It is simply the digestive juices eating away the lining in your colon.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The cause of the lining becoming weaker is most often antibiotic medication .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Once a hole develops, undigested material slips through the hole and enters your blood stream.

PowerPoint Presentation:

At this point, your immune system kicks in and attacks the food particle as an invader in the blood.

PowerPoint Presentation:

It is the immune system that acts in a way that produces the symptoms associated with a condition such as IBS or Crohn's disease.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The root cause however, is not the immune system, but the lining in the intestines.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When you visit a doctor, he will recognize that the immune system is causing the problem but may not recognize what is triggering the immune system's response.

PowerPoint Presentation:

This may lead to improper treatment with medication designed to suppress the immune system instead of treating the problem of deterioration of the intestinal lining.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The result for a patient in this situation is that the problem will get worse, not better.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If the damage to the lining gets to the point where it is life-threatening, your doctor will recommend surgery to remove portions of the intestine.

PowerPoint Presentation:

This surgery can be avoided, if only a doctor would provide a proper diagnosis from the beginning.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Treatment should center on saving the lining of the colon before it becomes too late for anything but surgery.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Once you know the cause, IBS treatment becomes much easier and effective.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The key to getting this treatment is to seek an alternative option, like a second opinion from a naturopathic doctor who does not make a diagnosis based upon conventional medical approaches.

PowerPoint Presentation:

This type of doctor will be able to understand your problem.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They diagnose from a different perspective and are always dedicated to the Hippocratic Oath that puts the patient first with a dedication to doing no harm.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A second opinion should make sense .

PowerPoint Presentation:

When a doctor prescribes medication to suppress your immune system and this leads to a worse condition, it stands to reason that the treatment is not working or there has been a misdiagnosis.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Always ask questions about your condition and insist on getting answers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

In conclusion, IBS is not an auto-immune disorder of any kind. There is no reason to allow your body to deteriorate from this condition.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The reasons for your symptoms are understood by naturopathic doctors. You can reverse the course of this disorder and start to get better.

PowerPoint Presentation:

It is only a matter of seeking out and using the services of a doctor that understands how to proscribe an effective IBS treatment plan.
