Herbs to help relieve the symptoms of IBS

IBS symptoms

Being a naturopathic colon hydrotherapist and trained in using certain herbs to implant rectally during colon hydrotherapy treatment, one of the most common herbs used is chamomile to help reduce IBS symptoms.

I often make an infusion of this herb by adding hot water, let it infuse for at least 10 minutes, cool it down to body temperature, then implant via the speculum.

Chamomile is a very useful herb especially when treating a client that has IBS or common IBS symptoms such as excessive bloating, trapped painful intestinal gases, bowel spasm, rapid transit time, in effect when treating an anxious bowel.

I would introduce half of the infusion at the beginning of the treatment and the remainder half way through. Not only can chamomile relax and calm down an irritated bowel, but very often it works on relaxing an anxious, overwrought client too.

In a small 2016 study in the journal Phytomedicine it was found that long-term chamomile use, drank as a tea, “significantly” reduced moderate-to-severe symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder (one of the most common anxiety disorders). Based on my own clinical experience I can also add that chamomile can significantly reduce an anxious bowel.

If you are an IBS sufferer, please take a look at my IBS diet plan.

You can see me carrying out a colon hydrotherapy treatment here in my IBS, digestive health and gut disorders clinic, using herbal fluid extracts implanted during the colonic treatment.

If you have suffered with chronic IBS symptoms and have tried everything type of drug, treatment, but have never tried colon hydrotherapy, then I would urge you to do so.  It is a quick, safe and very effective treatment for releasing trapped painful gases, reducing bloating, and removing impacted wastes. Always ensure the colon hydrotherapist is regulated and registered with one of the main colon hydrotherapy associations: ARCH, RICTAT IPCH
