Irritable bowel syndrome is also called allergic or mucus colitis. It is a commonly seen complaint and one which responds extremely well to both Chinese medicinals and acupuncture. The best news is that there’s only one core pattern in IBS. If you know this pattern, then this condition is relatively easy to treat. In this class, Bob Flaws presents this pattern and its most common complications. He then goes on to describe how to treat it using either acupuncture or Chinese herbs. In particular, Bob presents a formula which has proven itself to be extremely effective in the treatment of this condition. Bob also discusses diet and lifestyle modifications which can help in the overall treatment of this disorder.
