How can the Goodbye-PMS Clinic give you relief for your bloated tummy? – Identifying the causes of a bloated stomach
The fact you are looking at this website would indicate that you have probably been experiencing problems with bloating for some time and have possibly tried a number of cures including over the counter remedies, products bought from the internet, or even medicines prescribed by your doctor most likely with limited or little long term relief.
One cure does NOT solve all bloating problems
It is important to understand that there is not a generic cure or solution to all bloating issues. The solution to your stomach bloating problems is dependent on the cause. Establishing the cause of your bloated stomach is key to finding the solution.
Many practitioners simply dispense out medicines or advice which treat the symptoms of bloating often with limited or short term results.
Through experience the Goodbye-PMS Clinic has found that the best way of providing long term relief from bloating is by first establishing the cause of the problems and then looking for ways to prevent the symptoms occurring in the first place.
What are the reasons for a bloated stomach?
A bloated stomach can occur for many different reasons. The most obvious instance is when we overindulge at one meal and our stomachs distend naturally to accommodate the amount of food that we have just eaten. For many women bloating occurs prior to their menstrual period. Preceding a woman’s period fluid is retained by the body as it prepares for a possible pregnancy. For some women and excess of fluid retention causes a bloated, uncomfortable feeling.
More often we seem unable to identify the triggers for recurring bloating. A long term solution to bloating is dependent on correctly establishing the cause of the bloating.
What are the triggers commonly associated with abdominal bloating?
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Fluid retention due to PMS linked with the menstrual cycle
- Food Intolerances / Allergies
- Candida or yeast overgrowth
- Hormonal Imbalance
- Lack of digestive enzymes
- Intestinal permeability, commonly referred to as Leaky gut
- Parasites, including Blastocystis hominis, Dientamoeba fragilis, Endilomax nana, Entamoeba hartmanni, Strongyloides stercoralis, and Giardia lamblia
- Bacterial infections, including Citrobacter freundii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Escherichia coli, Citrobacter braakii
- Insufficient good gut bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium
- Stress, which is related to abnormal or elevated cortisol secretion
Each of these causes typically requires different methods of dealing with them. Therefore, it is essential that we first understand why bloating is occurring in order that we can establish the best solution likely to give the most long term relief to this problem.
How does the Goodbye-PMS Clinic identify the causes of stomach bloating?
The Goodbye-PMS Clinic approach is to identify specific imbalances and triggers by means of non-invasive testing (stool, urine or saliva). These tests are sent to your home where you can carry them out in your own time and in privacy. The samples are then sent directly to the laboratory for analysis. Once the results are obtained a clear picture of what is causing your symptoms can be established and a plan to overcome them devised.
Two options for bloating relief
Option One – Initial Test Kit Analysis followed by Clinic Consultation
Some sufferers prefer to order a relevant test kit as the initial step in their pursuit of a solution to their bloating problems. A phone or email communication with the Goodbye-PMS Clinic will help to determine which test kit is most suitable for the individual’s circumstances.
Once agreed, the test kit is rapidly sent out to the patient to complete in the privacy of their own home. The completed test is then sent directly to the laboratory for analysis.
When the results have been obtained a consultation can be booked to discuss the results and to agree a detailed plan for overcoming the sufferer’s condition.
Option Two – Initial Clinic Consultation
Other sufferers prefer to start the process with an initial consultation. At this meeting the patients symptoms, lifestyle and diet will be discussed and specific tests will be identified which will give the patient the most value and benefit. During this meeting initial specific dietary alterations will be suggested that will fit in with the patient’s lifestyle. Once the results of any tests have been analysed a review of the best strategy for alleviating or preventing the symptoms that have been presenting can be finalised.
- TESTING IS NOT COVERED BY THE CONSULTATION FEE
- TESTING RESULTS WILL ONLY BE DISCUSSED OR COMMENTED ON DURING A CONSULTATION
