The Story of a Troubled BowelDecember26, 2017 202 views
What is it that all of us work hard for?
Food. Four square meals a day. You could make that five, or six, as per your preference. Now, we can’t just keep piling our tummies with food, right? We have to let go of the food that’s already there inside, and that’s the reason why every morning, we clear out all the backlog and prepare our tummies for more food intake.
There’s a beautiful cycle that we follow. We eat, we poop, and then we eat more. Now, imagine if this cycle comes to a halt, or if it’s stuck.
You eat, but you’re struggling to poop, or maybe you don’t. You will soon begin to start feeling bloated, causing your appetite to go down. This would make you eat less, triggering acidity and gas troubles.
So, this causes another cycle, one which you wouldn’t prefer.
If this situation is making you uncomfortable, couple it with abdominal pains, irritation in your bowel and heartburn.
That’s exactly how a life with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS feels like.
One such case was Nihal’s (name changed). Nihal is a 37 year old software professional, suffering from these symptoms for almost a year. He was confused about it as to what was happening to him. He got used to popping in a tablet and get some relief, but his condition worsened when he realised that it would get back to square one again.
Nehal had no clue of what the problem was, because his medical reports were mostly all normal, yet he had trouble pooping. Struggling in the morning was one thing, he’d also come back in the evening with the only agenda to struggle again, just to feel better. He was then recommended by a friend, to try homeopathy, after a year long struggle. When Nihal met us, he was almost in a state of hopelessness. It might sound awkward, but Nihal often felt like he had a stone stuck in there which was painful, and restricted his movements at times. Nihal was in distress.
Nihal’s treatment process
We checked Nihal’s medical reports and analysed all his symptoms as the first step.
The second step was to explain what Nihal was facing. We explained to him what irritable bowel syndrome is. It was important for Nihal to understand what gastrointestinal functioning is, and what happens when it is disturbed.
The next step we took was to make sure he avoids certain foods that could trigger irritable bowel movements.
And the final step was the homeopathic medication that we had prepared for his individualistic symptoms.
Foods that Nihal had to avoid very consciously were:
- Milk and certain dairy products like cheese and paneer
- Foods that contain all purpose flour: Cookies and other baked stuff
- Sugary foods (all deserts)
- Caffeinated and carbonated beverages
- Processed and packaged foods
- High protein diet
- Foods that are high in gluten
- Foods with insoluble fibre
Although food intake and control helps in treating IBS, it also becomes important to eat the right kind of food and have a balanced portion of every meal. Nihal had to work on all these aspects, which wasn’t a very easy thing.
At Dr. Manoj’s Homeopathy we prepare unique combinations of remedies keeping in mind the individual symptoms, preferences and requirements which are effective in the long run. At first when Nihal started his course of homeopathic treatments, he started feeling uneasy for a couple of days. This was the main symptom that triggered the downfall of his poor bowel movement. Within a few more weeks, Nihal’s bowel movement showed drastic improvement and has been showing great results.
Nihal’s bowel movements have become much better and he also says that he finds it easier now to pass motions regularly. He quotes:
“IBS/Overall I feel relieved
The IBS that you detected & put me on your treatment has helped me & now I feel relieved after my 2nd attempt in the mornings, earlier I had to go for a third attempt in office. Even in the night after I come back from office, I sometimes do not go to the loo for passing motions these days. Overall I feel relieved on this count. Thanks doc! — Nihal”
