10 Homeopathic Remedies To Treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome!

Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder that is diagnosed on the basis of its symptoms. It is characterised by intense abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating and change in bowel habits. One of the primary symptoms of IBS is abdominal pain. It may also be accompanied with frequent diarrhoea or constipation. There might also be a feeling of partial or incomplete evacuation. The symptoms are sometimes relieved by the proper bowel movement. Other symptoms, in this case, include depression and anxiety. In rare cases, there is also a possibility of sexual dysfunction and a reduced libido.

Causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome–

The exact reason behind the occurrence of IBS is not known. It is a disruption of the brain-gut axis that is known to cause the problem. It is also caused due to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

Triggering factors–

IBS is intensified or triggered by the following factors:

  1. Foods: Edibles like chocolate, milk and alcohol might lead to constipation or diarrhoea. One must also avoid carbonated beverages and some fruits and vegetables. These might lead to bloating and discomfort.

  2. Stress: The condition gets worse with any type of stress.

  3. Hormones: In women, the symptoms occur as a result of the hormones during menstrual periods.

  4. Complications: It is not associated with any fatal condition. But it can lead to diarrhoea and constipation and aggravate hemorrhoids.

Adverse Impacts of the Disease-

IBS has an adverse impact on your lifestyle. It will limit your ability to get social or carry out your daily professional activities. You will find it difficult to cope up with the symptoms while living away from your comfort zone or home. You will not have a good sex life. You will get depressed and may even feel suicidal in extreme cases.

Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome-

IBS is treated broadly by bringing in certain changes in the lifestyle. To begin with, you are advised to check your diet. Include fibre in your diet, if you are suffering from constipation. Also, avoid oily, spicy and hot food items. Besides, you are prescribed medicines such as stool softeners and laxatives and antispasmodic drugs and proton pump inhibitors.

Homeopathic medicines-IBS requires prolonged treatment. Homoeopathy works best to get you relief from the symptoms and cures it, from the roots. Here are certain homeopathic remedies that are helpful in treating the disorder.

  1. Argentum nitricum

  2. Asafoetida

  3. Colocynthis

  4. Lilium tigrinum

  5. Lycopodium

  6. Natrum carbonicum

  7. Nux vomica

  8. Podophyllum

  9. Sulphur

  10. Aloe

It has to be kept in mind that these are just basic remedies. There are over 150 Homeopathic medicines that can be used for treating IBS. Thus, consult a doctor for the best remedy for you as per the symptoms.

Hello oral medications do help on reducing the symptoms. Many gall stone dissolving drugs are available but results are not that good. Best option for your patient is laparoscopic cholecystectomy by an experienced lapro surgeon. Don't wait long bcz complications may occur. Regards.

If reflux is the major problem then most likely you have GERD, that can can also explain other symptoms you have (except Polycystic ovary). However only way to confirm this is by getting an Upper GI endoscopy done. Also should get an Ultrasound done to rule out Gall Bladder stones since they can also present with similar symptoms. You can continue with Mac Rabonik DSR capsule. It should be taken empty stomach, there should be a gap of at least 45 mins between taking the medicine and your breakfast. The best way is to take it with a Sip of water in morning immediately after getting up from bed then you can perform your routine activities like washroom, bathing. So by the time you finish up 45 mins would have been passed and then you can have your Tea or breakfast. This medicine can be taken twice a day once in morning as explained and evening dose around 2 hrs before dinner. You should also follow some lifestyle changes like regular exercise, avoiding tea/coffee, oily, spicy meal, avoiding food with high sugar content like sweets, juices. Also maintain a gap of at least 2 hrs between your dinner and laying down in bed, try lying in bed with your head end slightly raised by around 20-30 degrees or you can lay in left lateral position (i.e. Left side down). Try the above instructions and if you are not relieved then you can go for the investigations mentioned before. Please feel free to contact me for any additional queries.
