Biofeedback, Digestion, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I have had great success addressing IBS and other digestion issues associated with stress using biofeedback. Much of the problem is the good ole American diet. Other triggers are overuse of caffeine, alcohol, and antibiotics. Caffeine and alcohol are very acidic to the body and are also very hard on the adrenal system. Antibiotics kill all the live flora in the gut, and it takes months to re-build. Also if you are eating non-organic dairy and meat or both, chances are you are ingesting antibiotics on a daily bases.

These are just a few of the things that create havoc on a digestive system, and if you already have stress in that area, you can image how these things can cause more.  With all these contributors as well as stress and anxiety, it is easy to see why so many people suffer with severe digestion issues.

We all have a “weak” area in our being, and if yours is digestion, then stress and anxiety can worsen IBS and digestion symptoms. Our digestion is important to our wellbeing since the majority of our immune system starts in the gut.

Biofeedback therapy can help you cope with these feelings and hopefully¬†reduce many of these worries and clear symptoms. It’s not known what causes pressure and worry to trigger stomach pain, discomfort, diarrhea, or constipation. But learning how to effectively manage emotional reactions seems to prevent or ease suffering.

Learning how to better cope with pain and discomfort and how to relieve stressful situations will help to ward off severe IBS and digestive symptoms. People tend to have fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression when their IBS and digestion symptoms improve.

Biofeedback uses electrical and energetic signals to help people recognize their body’s response to stress. Participants are taught, with the machine’s help, to slow down their heart rate to a more relaxed state. After a few sessions, people are able to calm themselves down on their own. They also become more in tune with their bodies so they are able to see a stressful situation coming on and deal with it before it becomes a problem.

I have dealt with my own personal issues around this subject so I love helping others lead a more pain free life with proper digestion.
