Summary

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a chronic (long-term) digestive disorder that gives rise to symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea and/or constipation. Although the condition is estimated to affect almost 20% of the population, the conventional treatment options for sufferers are very limited. As a result, many individuals can suffer from uncomfortable and debilitating symptoms with little hope of relief.

  • The common causes for IBS including food sensitivity and gut organism imbalance
  • How certain symptoms that can pinpoint the underling problem
  • What tests can be appropriate for getting to the root of the problem
  • The self-help strategies are most effective for combating IBS
  • Which changes to diet and natural supplements are most likely to offer lasting relief

    Dr Briffa is a lecturer, broadcaster and an award-winning health writer.
