IBS Treatment North NelbourneIrritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder characterised by abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits that are not associated with any abnormalities seen on routine clinical testing. IBS is usually described in a patient as either:

Common Signs and Symptoms of IBS

There are numerous symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome that you might experience but which could be alleviated with natural medicine for IBS. Among these are:

  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Alternating diarrhea and constipation
  • Abnormal stool form (lumpy/hard or loose/watery stool)
  • Abdominal bloating or feeling abdominal distension
  • Urgency (having to rush to have a bowel movement)
  • Mucus present in stool
  • Bowel doesn’t fully empty after bowel movements
  • Nausea

At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, all of our practitioners specialise in the natural treatment of IBS. We investigate the reasons why an individual suffers from IBS, including food intolerances, Candida, parasite infections, fructose and lactose intolerance, emotional stress, or even bacterial infection.

Our aim is to investigate why this is happening to you and what we can do to minimise the reactions (including prescribing natural medicine for IBS), with the goal to restore your gastrointestinal health so you can go on with living your life.

Our Specialised Tests Include:

  • A variety of screening tools that your Naturopath is trained in can be used in your consultation to provide an insight into the different signs that may be contributing to your IBS
  • Food sensitivity testing to assess potential foods which may trigger IBS.
  • Stool testing to assess infection such as bacterial, parasitic and yeast or candida infection. We can also assess digestive function and absorption of nutrients by referring your stool for analysis to sophisticated laboratories for testing.
  • Breath testing – we can refer you to breath testing laboratories to assess fructose, lactose or general sugar malabsorption.
