Gastrointestinal diseases

What is the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?

Many people suffer from digestive disorders. Bloating, cramps, changes in bowel movements, fatigue, and lethargy, as well as food allergies and even migraines, can be the result. If investigations such as ultrasound, laboratory tests, and gastrointestinal endoscopy do not reveal any pathological findings, irritable bowel syndrome (overly sensitive intestine) is diagnosed and treated symptomatically.

Even though irritable bowel syndrome does not pose a "danger" to the patient, it often significantly and persistently impacts their quality of life.

In many cases, a treatable cause for the "overly sensitive intestine" can be identified through a detailed stool examination.

How is further diagnostics and therapy conducted for irritable bowel syndrome?

A comprehensive analysis of stool provides an in-depth insight into the processes occurring in the intestine. Various parameters allow for an assessment of:

- Digestive function (breakdown of food components)
- Absorption (uptake of digested food components by the intestinal wall)
- Inflammatory activity in the intestine
- Potential allergies
- Presence of carbohydrate intolerances (e.g., fructose and lactose intolerance)
- Fat and protein digestion
- Composition of the gut flora (often disrupted by poor nutrition and antibiotics), including intestinal fungi
- Gluten intolerance as a mild (often undiagnosed) form of celiac disease
- Presence of intestinal tumors

Stool analysis can be complemented with blood tests (e.g., food allergies, histamine intolerance, celiac disease, among others), urine tests (e.g., histamine intolerance, systemic Candida fungal burden, among others), or bioenergetic diagnostics (food intolerances, central allergies, energetic disturbances in the digestive and excretory organs).

The treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) depends on the underlying causes identified. Along with targeted nutritional counseling, the treatment may include the use of digestive enzymes, anti-inflammatory natural substances, gut flora restoration, or allergy treatment using bioresonance therapy. Given the diverse range of individual findings, therapy is highly personalized.

What are the benefits of further diagnostics and therapy for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?

In most cases, treatable causes for an oversensitive intestine can be found; one just needs to search for them. Even though various factors, including psychological ones, can contribute to the patient's symptoms, these symptoms can often be improved through targeted treatment after a thorough diagnosis has been conducted.
