      What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

      If you suffer from IBS, you are familiar with the debilitating symptoms it can often bring on.

      Irritable Bowel Syndrome, a common gastrointestinal disorder, is chronic inflammation of the large intestine that causes uncomfortable abdominal pain, bloating, and bowel changes. IBS is considered a functional bowel disorder rather than a disease and is less severe than other similar gastrointestinal conditions such as Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. However, IBS can have a serious impact on your day-to-day life, leaving you desperate for relief.

      Because there is no specific test to diagnose Irritable Bowel Syndrome, getting the proper diagnosis and treatment can be tricky. Ordinary practitioners may send you home with a new medication to relieve symptoms but fail to heal the root of the issue, leaving you with further complications down the road.

      At Water's Edge Natural Medicine, our mission is to not only relieve your uncomfortable symptoms but resolve the problem altogether. Our IBS experts are far from ordinary, and make sure to take the time needed to listen to your concerns, have a complete understanding of your medical history, and find a solution to help you heal from IBS.
