IBS Treatment Center https://ibstreatmentcenter.com Seattle, WA Thu, 15 Jun 2017 01:55:45 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Give Yourself (or a Loved One) the Gift of Health! https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/12/give-loved-one-gift-health.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/12/give-loved-one-gift-health.html#respond Wed, 14 Dec 2016 22:23:43 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=11810 ContentTheStomachIrritable Bowel Syndrome is unfortunately one of the most common health problems in the world.  In the USA is it the second most common reason people miss work (Cash et. al., 2005) right behind the common cold.  Studies estimate that between 10 and 20 percent of all Americans have IBS.  That is a lot of sick people.  But ’tis the season of hope.  So what better time to give the gift of health?

The IBS Treatment Center provides expertise, and a suite of services that is simply not available elsewhere.  Most doctors follow the standard of care for IBS and assume that the best their patients can do is manage their symptoms.  The IBS Treatment Center goes well beyond the standard and has cured thousands of patients from all over the world of their IBS and the symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, excessive gas, and bloating.

This holiday season, give the gift of health.  If you have IBS, call the IBS Treatment Center today at 1-888-546-6283 to get started.  If you have a loved one who is suffering, give them the best gift you can – better health so they can live life free of the pain, embarrassment, and inconvenience of IBS.  Send them to The IBS Treatment Center website or even pay their first consultation fee.  Life is too short to stay sick.

Medicine that Cures, Instead of Managing, Irritable Bowel Syndrome https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/12/medicine-cures-instead-managing-irritable-bowel-syndrome.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/12/medicine-cures-instead-managing-irritable-bowel-syndrome.html#respond Wed, 07 Dec 2016 22:28:38 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=11791 ToDigestDivineDid you ever watch the TV series House M.D.?  In that series the doctor and his team spent countless hours working with a single patient.  They did everything they could to figure out and then solve the patient’s medical problem.  Wouldn’t it be great if medicine really worked like that?

Unfortunately, House M.D. is a complete fantasy where IBS is concerned – unless you are talking about the IBS Treatment Center.  Millions of people all over the world have Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, gas, and/or bloating.

They see doctors, specialists, are sometimes hospitalized or go to emergency rooms, and have expensive scoping/imaging done.  But in the end, most are told that there is nothing that can be done except try to manage their symptoms.

In fact, the official position of the major medical organizations is that IBS is a functional disease that can be diagnosed on symptoms alone and has no cause and no cure.  So once a patient is diagnosed with IBS, the standard of care is to only offer symptom management.  Real medicine is almost never like TV.

But the IBS Treatment Center is different.  We really do have doctors who spend lots of time directly consulting with patients relentlessly pursuing a cure.  We really do have diagnostic tools based on the best available science – tools most doctors have never even heard of and can’t provide.  And the most important part – we do help the vast majority of our patients to find the underlying issues that are causing their IBS symptoms, treat them effectively and cure them.

If you are interested in a really different approach to medicine, give us a call at 1-888-546-6283.

You Could Save Thousands If You Take Action Now! https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/11/save-thousands-take-action-now.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/11/save-thousands-take-action-now.html#respond Tue, 29 Nov 2016 17:46:41 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=11705 HappinessHealth Insurance has gotten a lot more complicated.   Many aspects of insurance have changed quite a bit.  The big one you need to pay attention to right now is your deductible.  If you don’t understand your deductible, this somewhat complicated issue can cost you a lot.

Most health plans these days require you to pay some of your medical costs.  The deductible is one of the ways they transfer cost to you, the patient.  Here is how it works:  The insurance company sets a deductible for your plan – for example, $2000 a year.  This is the amount you have to pay before your insurance company starts paying their portion.

Thanks to the ACA, insurance has to cover preventative care, birth control, and immunizations (and a few other things), but for everything else, you have to pay up to the deductible and then insurance will start to pay.  If you have a $2000 deductible and you see a doctor for $450, you will have to pay that, and another $1550 before your insurance kicks in.

And here is the most important part – deductibles reset every year, almost always on January 1st.  That means if you have paid for some healthcare this year, you can save a lot by getting any additional care you have planned done before 2017, when your deductible will reset.

There are 4 scenarios:

1.  If you haven’t paid anything for healthcare this year:  In this case it is appropriate to wait until January to avoid paying your deductible both in 2016 and 2017.

2.  If you have paid part of your deductible, but you don’t have any current healthcare needs, or your costs will not be enough to reach your deductible prior to 2017:  In this case it doesn’t matter.  Unless you plan to have lots of costs in 2017, schedule any healthcare when most convenient.  If you will have lots of costs in 2017, then wait until January.

3.  If you have met your deductible:  This is true for many people.  Because you don’t still owe your deductible, your coverage will be much better in December than it will after your deductible resets in January.  Get to your healthcare providers now!

4.  If you have paid part of your deductible, and your planned care costs will be more than your deductible minus what you have already paid:  Your insurance will kick in faster if you get started now, rather than waiting and having to start at zero. Go see your provider now!

Obviously if you have immediate needs, get them addressed.  Don’t let a difference in costs cause significant damage to your health.

The bottom line, if you have paid any portion of your deductible and have any significant healthcare needs, try to fit them into December so you can save money.  Best wishes in this holiday season! May your health be fantastic.

Why We Can Cure Your IBS When Your Doctor Can’t https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/11/we-can-cure-ibs.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/11/we-can-cure-ibs.html#respond Fri, 18 Nov 2016 22:59:20 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=11671 TummyTroubleIf you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) you have probably seen several doctors.  You may have been referred to a gastroenterologist or seen several specialists.  You may have been given a secondary diagnosis, like PI-IBS, gastroparesis, or SIBO.

But despite all their tests, colonoscopies, and prescriptions, you still have symptoms.  You are still sick even after all the medical care you have received.  You might feel you are all alone, or that yours is a very special case.  But actually, you are in the majority.  Nearly all patients with IBS experience the same thing:  Lots of expensive medical care, but no real results.

The IBS Treatment Center is different.  Our doctors are IBS Specialists – the only dedicated IBS Specialists in the world.  We cure the vast majority of our patients and end their symptoms.  So why can we do that when your doctor can’t?  The answer is that we simply approach the entire situation differently.

Have you ever gone to the doctor or emergency room with flu-like symptoms, been told you have the flu, given some medicine and sent home?  Did they even test you to see if you had the flu?  You may remember back in 2014 when a man with Ebola was sent home with Tylenol and antibiotics without being tested at all.  This is because the standard of care for fever, and his other basic symptoms is to provide medicine without even testing.  This is very common in medicine.

The standard of care for IBS assumes that it can’t be cured and that the best outcome is to limit your symptoms by using drugs or strict, one-size-fits-all diets.  Nearly all doctors, including specialists like gastroenterologists provide care based on the standard approach.  Under this approach, you are not expected to get well, but rather manage your illness.  The vast majority of patients who have IBS get this care.  They often do get tested for dangerous conditions, like colon cancer, but almost never learn why they have symptoms or get cured.

The IBS Treatment Center is different.  Our approach is to keep investigating until we find out why you are having symptoms, identify the cause, and then provide treatment that solves the problem and cures you.  You might think this is common sense, but it is not how medicine usually works.   Most doctors stop testing after a few common tests.

Our doctors go way beyond the basics and have a huge array of testing and treatment options that have enabled us to cure thousands of patients from all over the world.  There is no single cure that is appropriate for all patients.  It is absolutely essential to approach each patient as a unique case.  Not like in standard medical care.

Your doctor or gastroenterologist isn’t bad.  He/She just isn’t an IBS expert who can go far beyond standard medical practice and cure your IBS.  If you are ready to get out of the bathroom and back to your life, give us a call at 1-888-546-6283

Jennifer Esposito is a famous actress. She has been in many movies and in TV shows like “NCIS” and “Mistresses”.

For years she struggled with IBS and other debilitating symptoms. She saw “the best” doctors, specialists, and they ran tests and made recommendations. Some of them told her it was all in her head. Most said “there is nothing wrong with you”. But she was sick and it was affecting her career. Finally, she saw a doctor who knew enough to test her for one of the thousands of causes of IBS – celiac disease. This was her turning point. Her gastroenterologist of 5 years later said “I never thought to test her for that”. Now Jennifer is doing great and enjoying life again.

At the IBS Treatment Center we help people like Jennifer every day. Our dedicated IBS doctors won’t tell you it is all in your head or that nothing is wrong with you. We will use a vast array of tools, including cutting edge testing, analysis, and treatment options to help you end your IBS and get back to your life. Be like Jennifer and get your life back. #livingfreejennifer. #JenniferEsposito #IBS #IBSTreatmentCenter #WeCureIBS

Can Yogurt Cure IBS? https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/06/can-yogurt-cure-ibs.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/06/can-yogurt-cure-ibs.html#respond Mon, 20 Jun 2016 19:00:11 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=11012 Portrait of middle-aged woman eating yoghurt If you’re struggling with IBS, you’ve probably tried lots of remedies. Tempting quick-fix remedies are everywhere: Internet discussion boards, talkative strangers and even medical professionals all have ideas on how to cure your IBS.

Unfortunately, IBS is a complex collection of symptoms. It’s simply not the same for all patients. Your IBS is likely not caused by the same thing as someone else’s – and that means their “magic cure” won’t work for you. It could even make things worse.

IBS Is Complex. Anyone Saying Different Is Selling Something

One of the more popular “one-size-fits-all” cures is yogurt. It’s said to help treat IBS because it contains healthy bacteria or probiotics. Most yogurt brands do contain probiotic strains of bifidobacteria and lactobacillus, which are said to restore the balance of good bacteria in the gut. That’s good. But most IBS is simply not caused by a lack of good bacteria. So eating more yogurt won’t help. (And if you have a sensitivity to dairy, yogurt may even make you sicker.)

If you’re ready to cure your IBS for good, speak to the experienced professionals at IBS Treatment Center. We’ve cured over 80% of our IBS patients permanently – better than any other facility anywhere.

The Risks of Using Yogurt to Treat IBS

Attempting to treat your IBS with yogurt without expert advice can make your symptoms worse, including worsening stomach pain, bloating and gas. This is especially true for people who have an undiagnosed lactose intolerance or a dairy allergy – that means you cannot properly digest dairy products, including yogurt. (It’s estimated that 75% of the world’s population is lactose intolerant.)

Even if you are able to digest milk proteins, it’s unlikely that yogurt’s good bacteria will fix your IBS. Your real trigger(s) will continue, unaddressed.

How We Can Help for Good

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for IBS. Every patient’s IBS is unique, and their symptoms have a variety of causes. A cure that worked for someone else probably won’t help you – and it might make your symptoms much worse.

This complexity has earned IBS a reputation for being “incurable.” But we have permanently cured over 80% of our patients suffering from IBS – the highest success rate for any treatment center anywhere.

And as experts, let us assure you: our cure is not simply yogurt.

Our treatment involves experience, personal attention, and creating a unique wellness plan just for you. Our team of doctors and nutrition experts will use advanced resources to diagnose your IBS triggers and create a personalized treatment protocol to cure your IBS for good.

Can You Cure IBS Permanently? https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/06/can-you-cure-ibs-permanently.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/06/can-you-cure-ibs-permanently.html#respond Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:18:18 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=10984 how to cure IBS permanentlyMillions of Americans experience irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) at some point. IBS is incredibly common, with up to one in five Americans suffering from it during their lifetime. But due to the personal and embarrassing nature of the syndrome, too many people “put up with it” and suffer through life in silence.

If you’re experiencing chronic abdominal cramps, frequent diarrhea or constipation, and your doctors don’t know what’s causing it—you may have IBS.

If you have IBS and are ready to cure it permanently, contact us today.

Why Is IBS So Hard to Cure?

IBS is challenging to diagnose and treat because the symptoms and causes vary. Unfortunately, in today’s American medical system, many doctors seek a quick one-size-fits-all solution.

The complexity of IBS means it takes time and expertise to diagnose and treat. This means many doctors try a few simple solutions, and when they fail, they throw up their hands and tell patients they’ll simply have to live with the symptoms.

This medical surrender has given IBS a reputation for being “incurable.” But in fact, IBS is very curable. Thousands of our healthy, cured patients would be happy to confirm that fact.

We’ve Cured Over 80% of Our IBS Patients—Permanently

At the IBS Treatment Center, we know it is possible to cure IBS, and our numbers back up this claim: more than 80% of our patients have been successfully and permanently cured, which is the highest success rate of any facility anywhere.

We can cure patients because we’re experienced with IBS specifically. We know it takes time and personal attention to work with each patient and identify their triggers and symptoms, and work together to create a personalized wellness plan. We’re invested in our patients’ success.

Does Xifaxan Cure IBS? https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/05/does-xifaxan-cure-ibs.html https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/2016/05/does-xifaxan-cure-ibs.html#respond Thu, 26 May 2016 21:15:19 +0000 https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/?p=10959 does Xifaxan cure IBSThe short answer is NO.

Xifaxan – also known by its generic name Rifaximin – is an antibiotic. Its primary purpose is to kill bacteria in the digestive tract. The problem is IBS is rarely caused by a general bacteria problem. Whatever is causing your IBS will still be there.

Xifaxan Doesn’t Treat the Real Cause of IBS

Xifaxan is frequently prescribed to treat SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and some doctors believe IBS is caused by SIBO. We are experts in treating both IBS and SIBO, and IBS is not generally caused by SIBO.

Unfortunately, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is a complex disorder with a variety of symptoms and causes. There is no one-size-fits-all cause or cure for IBS. Finding your cure requires an experienced medical expert who will spend the time to understand your unique situation and work with you on finding the right treatment plan.

If you’re ready to be cured, contact us today.

Common Causes of IBS

IBS is caused by abnormalities in the way your gastrointestinal system functions. We don’t always understand why these abnormalities occur, but for the vast majority of patients we are able to identify their IBS causes and how to treat them. We’ve cured over 80% of our IBS patients, a success rate unmatched by any other clinic anywhere.

IBS symptoms can be triggered by food allergies, infections, microbial imbalances, medications, other illnesses, and more. To be cured, your doctor must correctly diagnose the cause(s) of your IBS.

Some patients have been cured when we identified a gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, or other immune system reactions to foods. For other patients, food sensitivities aren’t involved at all. Some patients have several issues that are interacting together. To be effective, treatment must be specific to the patient’s issue.

There is no single cure-all for IBS. Please don’t count on a drug like Xifaxan for a quick and permanent fix. You’d be setting yourself up for disappointment.
