The thing about IBS is; it’s mind-boggling from a Western Medicine perspective.
From a TCM perspective? It’s as straight forward as it comes.
In fact, Chinese medicine thrives on treating a gut for IBS. Especially when many people have tried every approach under the sun, with little to no success.
This is where TCM loves to step in and address the body the old fashioned way; to the root of the cause.
Many customers over the years who have consumed Digestive Herbs (formerly TinyTea) have reported that their IBS is all but gone. Some, if their diet and lifestyle are not conducive to health, their IBS may be managed by our herbs.
Remembering that herbs are brilliant for healing the gut, however, we have to also take a look at what is aggravating our IBS. Is it the food we are eating? Is it lifestyle? Stress? Emotions?
Of course, we advocate for a well-rounded approach in order to totally recover from and be free of IBS long term.
TCM Dr. Lauren Curtain goes on to explain the intricacies of why IBS may exist in a person and how our Digestive Herbs can help.
“Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is seen as an imbalance between the Spleen and Liver organ systems in Chinese medicine. The function of the Spleen is to help form the stools to be eliminated as waste. Weak Spleen Qi will result in bloating, soft/loose stools or diarrhoea. The Liver organ system is in charge of the smooth flow of Qi (energy) throughout the entire body. If the Liver Qi is stuck or not flowing freely, it can slow down and create stagnation in the digestive system resulting in bloating, constipation or a combination of alternating constipation and loose stools/diarrhoea. A clear sign the digestive system needs some support! Our Digestive Herbs contains a specifically formulated blend that helps to support the functioning of our Spleen and Liver organ systems. When these organ systems are in balance, there is no bloating, no digestion discomfort with regular well-formed bowel movements”.
Yours in a predictable gut.
