Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a condition characterized by abdominal bloating, and cramping associated with either constipation or diarrhea.

IBS causes a great deal of discomfort, and can be quite incapacitating, but does not lead to serious disease.

The abdominal distention and cramps can provide extreme discomfort, and be quite incapacitating.

It is not clear as to the cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and the cause may differ from person to person.

One thought as to the cause may be the way signals are sent between the brain and the intestinal tract. This includes the neurotransmission from brain to intestine.

The treatment is often most difficult, and includes the ingestion of fiber, preferably liquid rather than solid fiber, such as psyllium and acacia powder,

However when the crampy symptoms are present, the discomfort can be quite debilitating.

Most individuals resort to a warm heating pad held over the abdomen for some relief.

However, because the condition is associated with signals sent from the brain to the intestinal tract, the use of a strong magnet apron placed over the abdomen can be most efficacious in the control of the crampy symptoms.

Because this neurotransmission consists of a flow of positive ions, the apron must consist of strong magnets placed with the negative pole facing the abdomen.

Held in this position for a period of time will usually decrease, or eliminate the crampy sensations. In addition the magnet apron can be worn at night during sleep without discomfort.

The Dr. Bakst super magnet belt can be worn in place to relieve these symptoms without ill effect.
