Inflamed Bowels

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colitis and Diverticular Disease are all types of inflammatory bowel diseases, IBD, in which the bowels are inflamed. Over a period of time, this inflammation can cause severe pain, diarrhoea and constipation often in episodes or flare-ups. This inflammation can prevent absorption of nutrients which can lead to vitamin deficiencies in the body and sometimes anaemia. 

Natural herbal remedies and probiotics may be useful in the treatment of IBD especially when combined with changes to one’s eating habits such as incorporating anti-inflammatory diets.
