Dr. Saputo's Irritable Bowel Disease Health Assessment will ask you about the severity of your symptoms, what you do to manage it, what tests you did to assess it, what associated bowel diseases you may have, and what you can do to manage this illness.
Most cases of IBS are associated with an imbalance of the microbes in the gut. Correcting this imbalance with natural microbes can have a profound effect on symptoms and recovery. Probiotics (friendly microbes) are a cornerstone of effective treatment, but there are many essential nutrients that support the natural healing process of the intestinal tract that are also valuable. Dr. Saputo recommends the following lifestyle, dietary, and supplement approach to help improve IBS symptoms and restore normal intestinal function.
