Your gut is said to be your second brain, when you have an issue with your gut the rest of your body will feel it, not unlike when you have a headache the body feels the pressure and limits your mobility and movements.
Irritable bowel syndrome or "IBS" is a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder, meaning symptoms are caused by changes in how the GI tract works. People with a functional GI disorder have frequent symptoms; however, the GI tract does not become damaged. IBS is a group of symptoms that occur together and is not a disease.
IBS is diagnosed when a person has had abdominal pain or discomfort at least three times a month for the last 3 months without other disease or injury that could explain the pain. The pain or discomfort of IBS may occur with a change in stool frequency or consistency or be relieved by a bowel movement.
At Vitality Hub we use the BioScreen technology as our primary diagnostic tool to determine if a person has any intestinal and/or bowl issues.
Over the past three years the team at Vitality Hub have developed a 10 week gut repair program that addresses IBS issues and other gut issues that people may have. Through a structured supplementation and liquid herb protocol the team has resolved IBS and gut issues for many of our patients by re-building their gut flora and restoring gut health.
With the a very similar protocol our practitioners can help manage patients that have contracted gut bugs from their overseas travels.
