haha - "WHY?" is quite a broad generalised question...Maybe: Genetic predisposition; cumulative environmental, chemical and/or mental triggers causing functional/communicative breakdown in internal processes; spiritual/fate as part of a learning experience; pure randomness in a secular world??
My view is that it maybe a combo of all of them...but then again "I have access to certain informtion that others don't"...
The cause of IBS is not known although they are finding some genetic clues. Food and stress are triggers for many-different foods for different people-lactose, fructose, gluten, fat but many people who don't have IBS and can't digest/absorb these foods might get D or gas without the discomfort and pain. It is ultimately largely the hypersensitivity of the bowel which distinguishes IBS. Some people develop this hyperensitivity after a bacterial or viral illness but not everyone with such illesses develop this hypersenitivity. So it is all up in the air. So that is it in a paragraph.
"I was intrigued by the fact that it was based on Hatha yoga- an old practice in India."Yeah, although, that is a minimal influence of the system. It looks really exciting and I have no doubt will become more well-known as time goes on. Watch this space...
