Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease IBD is a term which is basically referred to two diseases of the intestinal tract: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These diseases are so similar but do differ significantly in 2 points: the disease location in the digestive tract affected and the pattern of extension of the inflammation.

In Balsam Clinic, we designed a personalized lifestyle modifications program for individuals with IBD, based on their sex, age, stress level, nutritional history and the pattern of their disease. We believe that bad habits can pose some big problems, so we build our strategic plan of therapy on removal of all suspected obstacles to retain the healing power of nature inside your intestines.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is is a common disorder that affects the large intestine causing: cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and change of bowel habits (diarrhea or constipation, or both). IBS is usually preceded by gastroenteritis caused by the bacterium Campylobacter in a condition of weak patient’s ability to handle stress before the infection. Those with higher levels of perceived stress, anxiety, and negative illness beliefs at the time of infection were at a greater risk to develop IBS.

In Balsam Clinic we focus on the root-causes of IBS on a personalized basis. So we suit the treatment plan according to the patient’s conditions, environment and goal.
