Medicine Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder characterised by abdominal pain or discomfort and accompanied by a change in bowel habit. No known structural or anatomical explanation accounts for the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome. Altered gastrointestinal motility may contribute to the change in bowel habit reported by some patients, and a combination of smooth muscle spasm, visceral hypersensitivity, and abnormalities of central pain processing may explain the abdominal pain that is an essential part of the symptom complex. Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic relapsing and remitting condition, and a significant proportion of patients will consult their general practitioner with symptoms. Guidelines for the management of irritable bowel syndrome recommend that the diagnosis should be made on clinical grounds alone, without the need for invasive investigations, unless alarm symptoms are present. As a result general practitioners are increasingly responsible for the initial management of patients with irritable bowel syndrome and are expected to refer only a minority to secondary care. If they are to fulfil this role effectively, general practitioners need efficacious treatments that do not require monitoring and are cheap, safe, and readily available. This is relevant at the present time as newer and more expensive drugs have either failed to show efficacy or been withdrawn from the market owing to concerns about serious adverse events. Traditionally, people with irritable bowel syndrome were instructed to increase their daily intake of dietary fibre, because of its potentially beneficial effects on intestinal transit time. When this failed, various types of smooth muscle relaxants and antispasmodics were used in an attempt to ameliorate symptoms, particularly pain and bloating. Recently, peppermint oil, which has been shown to have antispasmodic properties, has been available over the counter and has been used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. The use of insoluble fibre is discouraged because of concerns that it may exacerbate symptoms. Both organisations recommend that if fibre supplementation is required then this should be in the form of soluble fibres such as ispaghula. When type of fibre was examined, wheat bran was no more effective at treating irritable bowel syndrome than placebo or a low fibre diet. The beneficial effect of fibre seemed to be limited to ispaghula husk. Antispasmodics are recommended as first line treatment, particularly when pain and bloating are the predominant symptoms, but which of these drugs should be preferred is not stated. Antispasmodic acts by reducing colonic contraction and transit time and pain and stool frequency. Adverse events were significantly more frequent in those receiving antispasmodics than in those receiving placebo. The use of medicinal plants is taking an increasingly greater role in developing new techniques of treatment for IBS, as conventional medicine has few effective solutions. Powerless, and faced with treatment failures, some doctors are actively seeking alternative effective IBS treatment to resolve this inadequacy. Medicinal plant treatments provide real opportunities to safely eliminate irritable bowel syndrome with encouraging measurable results. Plant medicine provides elimination of IBS by directly reducing gastrointestinal spasms, improving metabolic functionality, strengthening immune system, and lifting emotions. This natural treatment renders a holistic, total and healthy irritable bowel syndrome treatment. Results achieved with this treatment are more than convincing especially in view of the poor efficacy of current available IBS treatments. Plant medicine is poised to become the treatment of choice by medical professionals and patients seeking to eradicate irritable bowel syndrome and related symptoms. When modern natural therapeutics doctors use plant medicine to treat ailments, they not only rely on the traditional property of the plant in traditional medicine, but grasp its modern pharmacology function and mechanism, which makes this therapy more scientific and modernized. What many natural therapeutics doctors use are no longer primary raw plant medicine materials but are effective components extracted from plant. Plant medicine is becoming the treatment of choice to negate IBS and to improve quality of life. To learn more, please go to . About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
