Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Posted on Thursday, February 1, 2007

The most common digestion disorder is having Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

This disorder is also called neurosis, mucous colitis, spastic colitis, or spastic colon. In IBS, the normally rhythmic muscular contractions of the digestive tract become irregular and uncoordinated.

This interferes with the normal movement of food and waste material, and leads to the accumulation of
mucous and toxins in the intestine. This accumulation material sets up a partial obstruction of the digestive tract, trapping gas and stools, which in turn causes bloating, distension, and constipation.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is caused by a diet consisting primarily of animal foods (meat, fish, etc...).while too low in fibre, these foods constipate the bowel and lead to inflammation.

Symptoms of IBS are:

Constipation and/or diarrhoea, abdominal pain, mucous in stools, nausea, flatulence, bloating, anorexia, and intolerances to certain foods.

Pain is often triggered by eating and may be relieved by a bowel movement. Malnutrition may result as nutrients are not properly absorbed.

These Irritable Bowel Syndrome ARE SUGGESTED TREATMENTS for Canines.


Change diet to a natural meat and vegetable diet recommended.

If already on a natural diet, then modify the supplements or veggies that may be causing upset.
