Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), is a debilitating disorder of the intestines
that comes with abdominal pain, cramps,gas and bloating, and irregular bowel
movements. Colitis, and ulcerative colitis are an inflammation of the colon. Herbal remedies for IBS are based on bitter herbs that support digestion
such as chamomile and gentian combined with gentle laxatives: chicory ,
dandelion , and psyllium .
The aromatic oils of peppermint and caraway are also used to calm nervous spasms
and reduce the pain and bloating that makes IBS sufferers so miserable.
Hepatorestorative (liver supporting) and cholerectic (increasing bile) herbs such as St. Mary's thistle (Cnicus benedictus), fringe tree (Chionanthus virginicus) and schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) are an important part of treatment for IBS.
