The Cause of 80-90% of IBS Cases
Lower abdominal cramps that suddently make you cringe; you realize you need to go for a #2 to help alleviate the pain? Does this sound like you?
It could be Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Perhaps you've already been diagnosed with it or know someone who has been. If you are constipated, have diarrhea, or a mix of both, then you could fit this "category".
The main problem with an #IBS diagnosis is: the underlying cause has not been discovered/addressed - you've simply been labelled. If you've had imaging/testing done, been diagnosed or think you may have IBS, and haven't gotten the results you've been looking for - it might be time to see a Naturopathic Doctor! I can test you for SIBO!
I'm accepting new patients virtually via Telemedicine. I hope you find it comforting to know that you can still seek help and guidance amongst the chaos of #covid_19 - in ways that do not require you to leave your home. Reach out via the contact form to find out more info/set-up your initial appointment.
