Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common chronic disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both.
The majority of patients with IBS complain of: abdominal pain (cramping or bloating that is typically relieved or partially relieved by passing a bowel movement), excess gas, diarrhea or constipation (sometimes alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation), mucus in the stool.
Most people with IBS experience times when the signs and symptoms are worse and times when they improve or even disappear completely.
Symptoms of IBS can be triggered by: food (many people have worse IBS symptoms when they eat or drink certain foods or beverages, including wheat, dairy products, citrus fruits, beans, cabbage, milk and carbonated drinks), stress (most people with IBS experience worse or more frequent signs and symptoms during periods of increased stress), hormones (women are twice as likely to have IBS, which might indicate that hormonal changes play a role. Many women find that signs and symptoms are worse during or around their menstrual periods.)
Carmen Care Advanced Laser Therapy has created a comprehensive protocol for patients with IBS which includes Laser Energy Detoxification, Bella Shape, PSYCH-K and photobiomodulation with significant clinical improvement.
