Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is marked by abnormal function of the colon; abnormal motility, pain, diarrhea, constipation/hard stools and increased production of mucous. IBS had a large component linked to the brain and serotonin.

Having treated numerous cases of IBD, looking at it from a holistic angle, utilising scientific tests and assessing all areas of health, patients have noted huge lasting improvements in quality of life and reduction in symptoms.
