  • Below are listed some common ailments concerning the bowels. For the following, check the symptoms and severity of any conditions as they apply to you and your digestive health.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

    As a stress-related health issue, IBS is one of the most common ailments of the digestive system and can cause considerable discomfort. Suffering with IBS can include diarrhea, constipation, or alternating attacks of one and then the other. IBS has a great deal to do with stress and thinking habits, and how thoughts are transferred and manifest throughout the body. IBS can be managed through a reduction in stress, a change in thinking patterns, and/or a change in the number of trigger foods you eat.

  • Constipation

    Many people think that if they have a bowel movement once every 2-3 days, then they are not constipated. In actuality, a bowel movement should happen at least twice a day, without discomfort or straining. If you do not have this regular of a schedule, you are likely moderately to severely constipated. Stool should be soft and light brown in color; floating or slowly sinking and easily broken up when the toilet flushes.

  • Diarrhea

    Diarrhea is loose, watery stools, generally passed more than three times a day. People with diarrhea may pass more than a quart of stool a day. Acute diarrhea is a common problem that usually lasts one or two days and goes away on its own without special treatment. Prolonged diarrhea persisting for more than two days may be a sign of a more serious problem and poses the risk of dehydration. Chronic diarrhea may be a feature of a chronic disease.

  • Diverticulosis, a precursor to Diverticulitis

    Many people have small pouches in their colons that bulge outward through weak spots, (which can be described as similar to an inner tube that pokes through weak places in a tire). This condition is called diverticulosis. It's estimated that 10 percent of Americans over the age of 40 and nearly 50% of all people over the age of 60 have diverticulosis, When the pouches become infected or inflamed, the condition becomes diverticulitis, and can be painful and even life-threatening if the diverticula rupture, allowing infection and toxins to ooze into the body cavity and wreak havoc.

  • Bowel Obstruction

    A bowel obstruction occurs when a mechanical or functional obstruction of the intestines prevents the normal transit of the products of digestion. It can occur at any level distal to the duodenum of the small intestine and may become a medical emergency requiring surgery if not cared for properly.

  • Weight Gain

    It's been estimated that an adult can have anywhere between five and 25 pounds of waste in their large intestine at any given time (45 pounds have been found during autopsies). While some of this is normal digestive transit, many pounds of feces can be attached the intestinal wall, causing physical and mental fatigue and general feelings of sluggishness within the body, sometimes contributing to further weight gain due to its effects on self-esteem and feelings of well-being.

  • Hemorrhoids

    Hemorrhoids are enlarged, painful veins in your rectum and can be caused by straining during bowel movements. Internal hemorrhoids generally cannot be seen or felt, unlike external hemorrhoids, which can be seen around the outside of the anus. Changes in dietary and bowel elimination habits can greatly decrease discomfort.

  • Anal fissures

    Constipation, straining and hemorrhoids can cause tiny tears around the outside of the rectum. Pain during bowel movements, rectal bleeding, itching, discharge and swelling are common symptoms.

  • Gas, Bloating and Flatulence

    Having gas in a normal part of breaking down foods and people will often have some gas throughout the day. When there is an excessive amount of gas or gas that has a particularly foul, strong odor, it is usually the result of the metabolism of sulfur-containing proteins and amino acids in the intestines, or from bacteria overproduction. Continuous and severe bloating and flatulence can be signs of deeper challenges within the intestines.

  • Bad Breath (Halitosis)

    Severely bad breath can be caused by any number of hygienic or health conditions, including bacterial infections and medications. Some bacteria in your mouth may produce gaseous compounds, causing a smell. Since not all bad breath has to do with your hygiene, it's wise to consult your doctor or dentist to exclude a health condition.

  • Parasite Infection

    Many people think that parasites are only found in third-world nations, but that is not true. While people in wealthier nations suffer less than poorer counties, parasite infections are often one of the most misdiagnosed conditions, since doctors and patients take this common problem for granted. Symptoms can include smelly stools that get more foul later in the day, diarrhea allergies to many foods, itching around the anus, especially in the evening, considerable weight loss, bloating, cramping, fever, even coughing and wheezing.

  • Blemishes, or Acne

    Acne can be a disorder of a backed up colon, and can be caused simply from a sluggish colon, resulting in bacteria backing up in the body and break through the skin. An improper balance of the friendly basteria. The skin is our largest eliminative organ. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Although acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can be a source of significant emotional distress. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.

  • Fatigue

    The word fatigue is used to describe a range of afflictions, commonly referring to a general state of lethargy. Physiologically, "fatigue" describes the inability to continue functioning at the level of one's normal abilities due to an increased perception of effort. Stress, lack of exercise and poor eating habits can lead to fatigue.

  • Candida

    Candida is a naturally occurring yeast that is present in all our bodies and it is supposed to be there in balance with many other microorganisms. The problem begins when several factors in our lifestyle (stress, medication, poor diet) cause the Candida to grow in outstanding numbers and it overtakes all the other healthy microorganisms. Once candida proliferates in the body it wrecks havock on the body in many ways and is the insitigator of many common maladies, conditions, syndromes and illnesses.
