Irritable bowel syndrome is now one of the most common problems of the digestive system: it is estimated that up to one in five people in the UK have occasional symptoms. It causes pain in the abdomen and an altered bowel habit. Although IBS poses no serious threat to health, it can have an adverse effect on a person’s quality of life.
Due to the pain, discomfort and embarrassment that are often associated with IBS, some people also experience feelings of anxiety and depression and they may be reluctant to leave their home for fear of the symptoms appearing.
There are different types of IBS, depending on your main symptom. It is known by a variety of other names, including spastic colon, spastic colitis, mucous colitis, nervous diarrhoea, nervous colon and nervous bowel. IBS is twice as common in women as it is in men.
Jean, 77, was helped with irritable bowel syndrome…
I went to Cara for a consultation and felt she could help me overcoming my longstanding problem with IBS. I couldn’t believe I had been viewing myself so negatively. After my six sessions with Cara…My IBS is much improved and I feel confident that with my internal locus of control being so much stronger I can only go on improving.
