Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a gastrointestinal disorder. Around 1 in 5 Australians experience the unpleasant symptoms but instead of popping a pill to treat it, you can opt for a natural, side-effect-free Brisbane treatment that will also stop the problem from recurring in future.
You may be suffering from IBS if you:
- Have abdominal pain and cramping
- Alternating diarrhoea and constipation
- A sensation that the bowels are not fully emptied;
- And have abdominal bloating
