In it ideal form, homeopathy is a sugar pill. It contains no medication whatsoever. Thus, on its own it does nothing. People who feel better after being on it are probably experiencing a placebo effect or spontaneous resolution of their symptoms.However, just as with herbal remedies, homeopathic pills may be tainted with impurities.
I was under GI care and tried medications wich helped for 2-3 months. Then they were changed to another which helped for some time as well. A few weeks ago I saw a naturopath and recomended a specific treatment that I am folowing. The first week I felt a little worse. Although I'm far from being normal I have noticed improvement. I do not have the "gut burning sensation," severe cramping and extreme urgency. I am not "blind" to this treatment and it is too early to tell, but I do have an open mind as I did when I was taking the meds. "If this is placebo effect, then dipentum, lomotil and carafate were also placebo pills" I am eating as healthy as I can, and especialy learning about nutrition. I have always tried to eat healthy. I recently learned a new twist to "you are what you eat"it is "you are what you digest."Good Luck, Treti
Ivy,You will enjoy tai chi. I am presently taking classes 2 times per week. It is an excellent form of excercise. It has helped me with the strengthening and also the meditation aspect. I hope you enjoy it.Treti
I was diagnosed with IBS 2 years ago. My doctor said there was no cookie cutter cure so I decided to try the alternative route. A year ago I saw a hypnotist and also started going to a reflexologist. To make a long story short...I wouldn't waste my money on the hypnotist again, but between the diet and the herbs recommended by the reflexologist I feel I am 95% "cured"!
