Causes Of Irritable Bowels With Constipation
Dear Dr. Cutler,
I suffer from irritable bowels and constipation and have seen your list of foods that can cause flare-ups. I’ve had an endless variety of tests and have avoided the foods on your list, but I still can’t determine what is causing my problems.
These episodes are quite painful, and any suggestions you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
It sounds as if your symptoms may be triggered by allergies, but your immune system can be triggered by causes other than foods alone. Unfortunately, these triggers are much more difficult to discover without specialized testing of your blood and urine.
These immune system triggers include…
- Vitamins, drugs and food additives
- Pollens, perfumes, dust or other manufactured chemicals
- Viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites
- Bites, stings, injected drugs, immunizations
- Painful memories from the past or present
However, there is an alternative to standard blood and skin tests through bio-energy science. Its science stems from acupuncture in which your body is known to have subtle bio-electric pathways. And when there are blockages in these pathways, your body gets out of balance resulting in allergy symptoms.
I have personally witnessed many patients experience dramatic symptom reversal when the allergic triggers to the immune system were identified and removed.
