Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the common digestive disorder of motility of the gastro-intestinal tract (GIT) that causes alterations of normal rhythmic muscular contractions of the GIT to become irregular and uncoordinated. Those suffering from IBS may experience severe abdominal pain, bloating, distention, anorexia, nausea, constipation or diarrhea ( often alternate ) due to interference with normal movement of food and waste materials leading to accumulation of mucous and toxins in the intestine.
IBS may affect part of the GIT or the entire GIT from mouth through the colon. The disease state does not exhibit any physical abnormalities in the tissues of the GIT.
IBS has been reported to be triggered by life style factors , viz., food allergies, anxiety, stress, depression, high carbohydrate and high dairy diet, tea, coffee or other stimulants.
Conventional allopathic treatment generally involves avoiding the trigger factors, ie avoiding food and/or other stimulants that may trigger IBS or keeping the GIT clean to avoid constipation. Antispasmodics, antidiarrheal drugs, anti-depressants are also frequently prescribed.
Healing IBS with Nutritional Homoeopathy
Over 15 years, Nutritional Homoeopathy has successfully healed several patients suffering from chronic IBS for many years ranging from more recent , 4 to 5 years to entire life from childhood, ie 30 years and more.
Patients who have come for IBS therapy at Nutritional Homeopathy clinic tried conventional treatments for several years without any relief. Majority of the patients complained of leading life overburdened with abdominal pains, cramps , depressions and anxiety for several years. They were unable to perform at work, undertake family responsibilities or attend social functions and obligations. Many were forced to lead life of social exclusions.
With Nutritional Homoeopathy therapy, patients have been able to recover from their chronic symptoms of IBS and are able to lead life of satisfaction and optimal well being, achieving their optimal potentials at work , family lives and social lives.
Nutritional Homoeopathy therapy for healing IBS is highly individualized and is based on each patient’s unique constitutional state during unhealthy state presenting IBS symptoms and healthy state prior to onset of IBS symptoms . The constitutional state incorporates each patient’s unique biochemical and pathophysiological states, immunochemical states emotional and mental states , life style factors affecting both emotional and mental states as well as ancestral heritage, cultural influences etc.
The Individualized, Constitution Based Nutritional Homoeopathy therapy is therefore able to heal both patho-physiological symptoms of IBS as well as the emotional/ mental/ lifestyle related factors associated with IBS symptoms in individual patients.
The therapeutic model of Nutritional Homoeopathy is designed by the practitioner Maitreyee using her several years experience and skills as a Homoeopath, Nutritionist as well as scientific training and international experience as Academic and Research Scientist in Microbiology and Biochemistry.
The therapeutic model for healing IBS symptoms has involved two major stages as follows :
(i) Stage 1: Finger Printing Constitutional States
During the first major stage , the practitioner identifies each patient’s unique constitution in the unhealthy state presenting IBS symptoms and healthy state prior to the onset of IBS symptoms using the her designed consultation and analytical method called Fingerprinting .

The consThus , the homoeopathy medicines are designed to heal the unique set of pathophysiological symptoms, immunological and biochemical states associated with the IBS symptoms, emotional and mental states, including anxiety and depressiona presented by each patient.ultation process leads to identification /fingerprinting each patient’s unique constitutional state in the unhealthy state exhibiting IBS symptoms and healthy state before the onset of IBS symptoms .
(ii) Stage 2: Doctrine of Signature
The second stage named as Doctrine of Signature involves identification of highly individualized homoeopathy medicine designed and selected to heal the symptoms of IBS in the unhealthy constitutional state so that the patient after healing would present the healthy constitutional state.
Thus , the homoeopathy medicines are designed to heal the unique set of pathophysiological symptoms, immunological and biochemical states associated with the IBS symptoms, emotional and mental states, including anxiety and depressiona presented by each patient.
The individualized homoeopathy medicines are further complemented with medicinal food present in individualized diet recommended for each patients .
