The Misconceptions About IBS


If your digestive system is not functioning properly, there is going to be a lot more stress in the body. The gut is directly connected to the nerves of the brain and this is known as the gut-brain axis. This means that the digestive system can actually affect the brain and lead to lower mood, anxiety and depression. There is a direct link between the bacteria in our gut and the way we think.

When your digestive system is off, it takes a lot of energy to break your food on a daily basis and so this is why many people can feel very tired physically but also mentally (brain fog, memory loss, etc).

If the digestive system is broken down, every time you put food into your body, it begins to ferment. The fermentation process then creates bacteria and it shows up as symptoms such as acid reflux, indigestion, bloating, gas, loose stool or constipation.

IBS is simply the name given to people that suffer from bloating, gas or any other digestive issue. If it lasts long enough, conventional doctors just call it irritable bowel disease and all this means is that you’ve had chronic IBS.


When you go to your GI specialist for all of the digestive symptoms you’ve been experiencing, you’re then given the diagnosis of “IBS”. The problem is that you didn’t really need to go to your specialist to be told that you had irritable bowels. If you suffer from any type of digestive based issue, you already know that you had irritable bowels and all that they did was add the word “syndrome” to it. This doesn’t solve any problems.

It’s not about going on prescription drugs because you have acid reflux or laxatives because you have constipation. We need to find what the root cause is.


When someone has IBS, it simply means that they have some sort of digestive distress. This can be caused by stomach acid levels being too low or too high or an imbalance in gut bacteria (aka gut dysbiosis).

We need to ask ourselves: why the improper stomach acid levels or the gut dysbiosis?

Remember, we always need to look for the WHY in order to fix the problem. It’s not about putting someone on acid blockers and putting a band-aid on the symptoms.

We need to look at parasites, yeast overgrowth in the intestines and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

Even if it’s just stomach acid levels, it usually leads to some type of bacterial overgrowth in the gut because there is not enough stomach acid. These are the reasons why people have the so-called “IBS” or suffer from any other digestive type issues.

I’m here to provide you with the information as to why you feel the way you do so you can either take this information for yourself or pass it on to those people that you love and care about.

You just need to find the reason WHY you have irritable bowels.

Find the right person that can guide you into finding why you have irritable bowels and you will without a doubt be able to figure it out.
