Have you thought about homeopathy remedies for your IBS? What a great idea to be able to use this homeopathy guide to help with your Irritable Bowel Syndrome. After all, these remedies have been around since the late 1700's. Originally discovered by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, these alternative medicines are directed at your symptoms rather than at your diagnosis. Prior to starting medicine, I used to work in a homeopathic pharmacy and was given first hand experience in producing some of these homeopathic remedies.
So to find out more, what you need is a homeopathy guide to help find what’s best for you. You therefore need a homeopathy practitioner to help you, but what do they do? Well, practitioners look at you as a person or “as a whole”. This is called taking a holistic approach to your health. They look at you from all the physical, psychological and emotional aspects to your illness.
Homeopathy has been popular throughout the world, treating millions of people. It is also popular with some members of the UK royal family and can be obtained through the NHS in the UK by qualified practitioners. With the advent of the internet, homeopathy on the web has become a popular way to find out more about this and also to buy homeopathy products.
Homeopathy medicines can be used in your IBS. Its use in Irritable Bowel
Syndrome is very safe, working with the body’s own immune system to
enhance its capability to fight off illness. Homeopathic treatment for
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is obtained from plants, animals and minerals
which can all be thought of as 'natural' sources.
The substances are diluted, sometimes to very dilute levels, to the extent where the initial substance is undetectable by modern science which is truly incredible. This is then spun or shaken rapidly. The process is called sucussion and the number of times this process takes place determines the 'potency' of your medicine. It is thought this double process imparts healing energy into the treatment.
The more potent your medicine is, the greater its properties. Homeopathic practitioners use potentised homeopathy remedies to treat your IBS. The remedy used is usually a much diluted form of the trigger to the illness. This is the art of treating "like with like". An example of this might be treating a cold with a diluted form of onion (Allium cepa). The principle to this is that onions can cause similar symptoms to a cold such as runny nose and eyes plus an irritated throat.
Remedies are available in tablets, liquids (tinctures) and creams depending on what symptoms they are being directed at. There are many distributors of homeopathy on the net, in high street stores and pharmacies, from practitioners and direct from the manufacturers too.
As homeopathy on the web is more common, I thought I would outline some of the common homeopathic remedies for you. I have provided this guide to give you some guidance as to the sort of treatments available. I have also provided links to buy homeopathy preparations from a reliable web source.

It is, of course, important to look on this as 'complimentary' to modern medicine i.e used in conjunction with other treatment modalities to promote healing, particularly as there is very little actual clinical trial evidence that this works. Having said that, there are millions of subscribers world wide that find benefit and it has to be remembered that there are a lot of modern medicines used today that haven't been subject to trials either including such a popular drug as Aspirin (which is derived from a plant!). So, it might be worth trying.
