Bowel and Gut Disorders: Overview & Symptoms

There are many different types of bowel and gut disorders and diseases. They can range from functional disorders (constipation, diarrhea, leaky gut and irritable bowel syndrome) to severe disease (cancer of the bowel). The causes and types of treatment for each are just as varied. Many feel that our modern dietary habits of processed, heavily sweetened foods along with bad fats, have grossly contributed to many of these problems. There is one thing that all bowel and gut problems have in common... the need for nourishing diet and lifestyle changes to bring the body back into balance (check out Lifestyle Rx for more info on diet and lifestyle).

In bowel disorders the most common early complaints are abdominal pain or discomfort, abdominal distension, bloating and/or a change in the bowel habits, such as constipation and diarrhea.

Though there are many traditional drugs used to treat bowel disorders, this website focuses on natural solutions that restore balance using herbs, homeopathy, prebiotics and probiotics, with an emphasis on whole food nutrition to re-balance your gut. This website concentrates on three primary disorders: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticulitis and Ulcerative Colitis, though almost any bowel or gut disorder will improve with the Healthy Bowel Support and DigestPlus. Both products are available in our Healthy Gut & Bowel Kit.
