Are You Suffering from IBS? Homeopathic Medicines Can Treat Your IBS Permanently

Homeopathic Medicines for IBS

A temporary stomach upset after overeating or over drinking is one thing, but a change in bowel habits is a medical condition that needs help. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of the intestines that leads to cramps, bloating and changes in bowel habits. Some people with IBS experience constipation while others have diarrhea, and some suffer from both these conditions together. The cause of IBS is not known, and doctors call it a functional disorder because there is no sign of disease when the colon is examined. Homeopathic medicines for IBS helps treat the symptoms of IBS, reducing their severity with time. Nux Vomica is the top remedy for treating IBS, but there are many other medicines for IBS that can be used symptomatically.

IBS causes a great deal of discomfort and distress, but it does not cause permanent harm to the intestines and does not lead to intestinal bleeding of the bowel, or to a serious disease (such as cancer). The potential for abnormal function of the colon is always present in people with IBS, but a trigger also must be present to cause symptoms. The most likely culprits seem to be diet and emotional stress. Many people report that their symptoms occur following a meal or when they are under stress.

Top Homeopathic Medicines for IBS

The conventional system of medicine has practically no treatment for IBS, but Homeopathy does. Remedies for IBS are made of natural substances having zero side effects — do not treat diseases but rather human beings suffering from diseases, thus ensuring a complete cure. As a comprehensive holistic approach to healthcare, natural  medicines are able to offer a solution to many of these problems.

1. Nux Vomica: Top Remedy for IBS

Nux Vomica is the top natural medicine for IBS. The prominent symptom calling for its use is the passage of a small quantity of stool or poop very frequently with abdomen pain. The patient feels the constant urge to pass stool. The abdomen pain is relieved for a very short time after stool. But the pain in abdomen and desire for stool begins soon after stool expulsion. This is most of the times accompanied by a distended abdomen after eating. The peculiar food that worsens the condition is spicy food, coffee, and alcoholic drinks. The worsening of condition after anger spells is also an important marker for natural Homeopathic remedy Nux Vomica.

2. Aloe: For Urge to Pass Stool After Eating or Drinking

Natural medicine Aloe is the best remedy for the urge to pass stool soon after eating or drinking anything. Aloehelps in regularising the intestinal movements and put them under normal limit since they are at an increased pace in patients with IBS. Aloe, which is a natural medicine without any side effects,is also of great help for persons who rush to the toilet for stool soon after eating or drinking anything and the stool is loose and may be accompanied by passage of a large quantity of gas. In a few persons, mucus may be expelled along with stool. The patient also experiences pain in the abdomen before and during stool. The abdominal pain vanishes after passing stool.

3. Alumina: For IBS with constipation

Alumina is a natural medicine for treating patients of IBS in whom constipation predominates. Alumina can provide a great helping hand when the patient suffers from constipation of the most obstinate kind. The intestines work at a very slow pace in such patients. The stool remains in the rectum for many days without any urge to pass stool. The stool is expelled out by putting much strain. The stool in a few patients is hard and in others it is soft. But passage of stool is difficult with much effortin both cases. Potatoes seem to be the most intolerable food for patients requiring natural Homeopathic remedy Alumina.

4. Carbo Veg: Natural Treatment for IBS with Abdominal Bloating

The patients of IBS who suffer from a bloated abdomen can benefit greatly from natural remedy Carbo Veg. The patients requiring this natural medicine complain of a heavy and tense abdomen soon after eating. Even the simplest kind of food seems to worsen the condition. The passage of gas or belching provides slight relief. The patients may also complain of acidity with burning in stomach. This is accompanied by frequent loose stool of offensive odor. Cramping pain in the abdomen may also be present.

5. Lycopodium: For Heaviness in Abdomen after Eating

Lycopodium is a very useful natural medicine for dealing with IBS with heaviness in the abdomen after eating a small quantity of food. The abdomen feels full and distended. Gas fills the abdomen. Alteration between diarrhea and constipation is often noticed. The patient’s condition gets worse by taking food that usually leads to gas formation like cabbage. The desire for very hot food and drinks is a very important indicator of Lycopodium.

6. Croton Tiglium and Podophyllum Peltatum – For Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhoea and Gushing Stool

In irritable bowel syndrome cases of diarrhea with gushing stool, Croton Tiglium and Podophyllum Peltatum are the best Homeopathic prescriptions. Other signs to look out for use of Croton Tiglium are – urging for stool soon after eating or drinking, watery stool, copious stool, weakness after passing stool. Podophyllum Peltatum is given where the attending features include profuse and highly putrid/offensive stool, fetid flatus, diarrhea that worsens after eating fruits.

7. Bryonia Alba – For Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation and Hard, Dry Stool

Bryonia Alba is another significant medicine for IBS with constipation and dry, large, hard stool. The stool is excessively dry as if burnt. Burning in anus on passing stool may be observed. A headache from constipation is another indication for using Bryonia Alba.

8. Colocynthis – Remedy for Loose Stools and Abdominal Cramps in IBS

Colocynthis is a medicine for irritable bowel syndrome with loose stools attended with abdominal cramps. Eating or drinking in the smallest quantity leads to cramping. Bending double or pressure over abdomen may provide relief. Stools are watery, yellow and frothy and attended with the passage of flatulence.

9. China Officinalis – For IBS with Weakness and Weight Loss from Chronic Diarrhea

China Officinalis is the most recommended medicine for IBS with weakness and weight loss from chronic diarrhea. The diarrhea is painless. Persons in need of China Officinalis have a chronically loose stool, marked flatus and bloated abdomen. Abdominal colic from flatus in abdomen is also present.

10. Pulsatilla Nigricans – For IBS that worsens with Milk and Milk Products

Pulsatilla Nigricans is one of the top grade medicines for irritable bowel syndrome where taking milk or milk products worsens the complaint. Symptoms include rumbling in abdomen, flatulence, bitter taste in the mouth, belching that tastes like ingesta and changeable stool. These symptoms worsen upon consuming milk.

11. Argentum Nitricum –For Diarrhoea and Anxiety in IBS

Argentum Nitricum will best treat irritable bowel syndrome with marked diarrhea in people with chronic anxiety. Such persons have marked anticipatory anxiety levels. Anticipatory anxiety means anxiety arising from overthinking about events that are to take place in the future. Anxiety also appears every time they have to appear in public, crowds or in public meetings. The anxiety results in diarrhea with frequent stools. Such persons are impatient by nature and do everything in haste.

    Hello DR Sharma, I am a 77 year old male, 5’9” 160 lbs with chronic sporadic IBS over 15 years. 2 years ago I had intestinal surgery for a blockage caused by a mekels diverticulum. This brought relief of all symptoms for a year, but sensitivities resumed for the past 3 months: frequent sporadic lower abdominal pain (not stomach) more during sleep for the past month. Good regular stools, no constitution or diarhea. Stool test shows inflamation causing GI Dr to recommend a colonoscopy. I avoid spicy food, eat a well balanced diet of salmon, chicken, rice and veg’s, exercise regularly, meditate, and take probiotics. I eat some sweets, drink coffee and alcohol (2.5 0z of vodka daily). I’m also have various autoimmune disorders that are managed by supplements. Thanks for your consideration.

  19. Deborah Merrifield says:

    I had small bowel resection 8/16 after a complete blockage caused by scar tissue from hysterectomy. Bowel would not wake up for 2 weeks. Since hospital discharge 9/1 I have had several bouts of severe cramping pain that seemed to be triggered by certain food and too much food at a time. Each time I had to go on liquid diet and the cramping continues for several days. Before the obstruction I had a sensitive gut with chronic constipation, frequent bloating and gut pain and GERD with diagnosis of Barrett’s Esophagus. I’ll start keeping a food diary, but what do you recommend for the cramping pain?
