Conventional drugs that are commonly prescribed to treat IBS often are too specific to effectively manage the wide ranging group of symptoms.  However synergistic combinations of practitioner only products can help to address the many mechanisms responsible for IBS.  These underlying mechanisms include complex interactions between the brain/gut axis, gut microbiome, gastrointestinal fermentation and other immunological responses, all which can be triggered by psychological stresses such as depression and anxiety.

Due to visceral hypersensitivity experienced by IBS sufferers, even mild inflammation in the gut can register as painful in the brain and trigger discomfort and motility changes.  Practicioner only herbal products have been shown to inhibit pro-inflammatory IL-6 and TNF-α, successfully reducing these symptoms experienced by IBS sufferers.  Additionally supplementing with antispasmodics is also used to effectively manage altered motility and inhibit gastrointestinal spasms by preventing the breakdown of Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).

Effective treatment of IBS comes from addressing a variety of the mechanisms simultaneously that cause the underlying discomforts described within the syndrome. Working to address a number of these facets simultaneously, using therapeutic, practitioner only products, can produce great clinical improvements, and ensure patients avoid a lifelong sentence of IBS.
