What causes IBS?
IBS is caused by an imbalance of one of the systems in your body. The three most common imbalances that cause IBS are an exhaustion of the adrenal glands, a liver that is toxic or not producing enough bile or a hormonal or nuerotransmitter imbalance that disrupts communication of the brain and gut. There are many more causes that can range from food allergies, to bacterial imbalancce to leaky gut. IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning there is nothing functionally wrong with the body but systems persist.
