Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): CAM Therapies for Specific Conditions

  • Biofeedback, a training program used to increase control over autonomic body functions, is now used to treat about 150 disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

 

  • Naturopathic medicine has been used to treat irritable bowel syndrome. Naturopaths often treat the disease in conjunction with medical doctors. Naturopaths focus relatively more upon the whole person than the disease condition. This can be helpful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, which may have a number of causative factors. Among the treatments administered are dietary therapy, homeopathy, and psychotherapy.

 

  • Homeopathy is sometimes applied as a stand-alone therapy for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). A large study using Asafoetida 3X found a statistically significant improvement in patients receiving the medication.

 

  • Ayurvedic medicine is sometimes used to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
