Irritable bowl syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating gas and diarrhea and/or constipation. IBS is a chronic condition that a person will need to manage long-term. Its causes are not clear and is often a cruel treatment resistant condition. As many as 1 in 5 people in the UK suffer with this condition.
It is a condition that truly takes over its victims lives. Some people with IBS have to make themselves aware of every toilet on their every route in fear of needing the loo and being caught short. It complicates people’s working lives as they may be arriving late due to not being able to leave the bathroom, and can be very embarrassing in social settings. It is so pervasive that some people find it takes over their life.
Many medications may seem to help a little or for only so long, or may cause other issues. IBS remains largely treatment resistant. But there may be another option worth considering.
In recent times many people are shedding light on the many benefits of CBD oil. From You Tube testimonials to news coverage, CBD has taken the world by storm. It benefits are extensive, helping people regain their lives despite many various health conditions from cancer to general anxiety.
In most cases, CBD has helped and could help many more with IBS. It’s reported that CBD helps relax contractions of the smooth muscle of the intestines, hence reducing cramps and aiding in intestinal functions.
Our body’s have been designed or have evolved with cannabinoid receptors that work in harmony with the cannabinoid chemical, CBD. Cannabinoid’s are the same chemical found in the cannabis plant. Science has recently become aware of the presence of the Endo cannabinoid system within our bodys. CBD is in tune with the body and works to aid it naturally. It speaks the bodys language so to speak unlike prescription drugs created in a laboratory which may cause many unwanted side effects. There are no harsh chemicals in CBD as its completely natural and it should not present a danger. Side effects are possible but are reported to be mild if any. As always one should consult their doctor about any medications they may be taking. Sometimes medications may conflict.
The Endo cannabinoid system is involved in a lot of functions in the human body, maintaining homeostasis (stable equilibrium between interdependent elements) in our body in many different areas and one of those happens to be in the gut.
If the system isn’t working correctly and doesn’t have the correct levels of Endo cannabinoids, it can cause a person to be oversensitive to pain and experience problems like IBS.
If treatments continue to fail then CBD oil may be worth a try. There is nothing to lose but a lot to gain if it potentially helps a person to live a better less painful and comfortable life.
If uncertain always consult a doctor. But i sincerely hope this short blogg is of benefit . I always appreciate feedback, so feel free to let me know how this works if you suffer with IBS and decide to try out CBD.
