Alternative IBS Medicine

Some of these more non-traditional therapies may help to relieve the symptoms of IBS:

Acupuncture – Can provide relief from chronic pain. Some people use acupuncture to help relax muscle spasms and improve bowel function.

Herbs – Peppermint acts as a natural antispasmodic and relaxes smooth muscles in the intestines although it may aggravate heartburn.

Probiotics – These are good bacteria that are found in certain foods and are present naturally in the intestines. Yogurt and dietary supplements contain probiotics.

Note: Before using any medication, alternative or otherwise you should consult your doctor.
