IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is a disorder generally associated with symptoms of abdominal discomfort, but that can also present with symptoms in other areas of the body. While there is no known cause for IBS, there are many trends we see in those who have it. There is a definite genetic link to IBS, and symptoms present more often when there are other general gut health issues. Our gut contains bacteria to help with breaking down food. Our body actually holds ten times more bacteria than actual cells. These bacteria help digest what we cannot digest on our own, but in order to be useful they have to be in balance with each other. When these bacteria are out of balance it can lead to imbalance in the gut which leads to more IBS symptoms. At Nutritionally Yours, we recommend one of our comprehensive stool tests for IBS answers. By revealing exactly what is going on in your gut, you can make the necessary changes to help alleviate your symptoms and hopefully start feeling better. Other than bacteria, our stool tests also looks for things like yeast, digestion markers, absorption markers, inflammation markers, short chain fatty acids, parasites, worms, leaky gut and intestinal health markers. We make sure to be thorough because your health is important to us.
