If we had a dime for every time we heard a patient ask us, “Wait, you can help me with my bowel problems?!” — We would have a lot of dimes. (Luckily, we don’t charge our beloved patients for positive exclamations!)
The Center for Alternative Medicine’s mantra is to offer the best alternative care available to help our patient’s complaints. Very often, the complaint is of the digestive tract. Very often, conventional medicine only treats the symptoms of the complaint. At C.A.M. Clinic we do our best to find out what the CAUSE of the problem which gives us the best possible chance to fight it.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (I.B.S.)
IBS is very common in the U.S.. It can effect adults as well as children.
At CAM Clinic we combat IBS by examining diet, the body, and by running diagnostic labs to determine the cause. The cause of IBS can often times be traced back to stress, anxiety, and depression. The cause can also be rooted in specific food allergies. Whatever the cause of your IBS, be sure to give your CAM Clinic Doctor a thoroughly detailed history to ensure the best results for your treatment.
