Nearly 2,000 IBS patients surveyed in 2007 by the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders reported that diagnosis of their IBS was typically made 6.6 years after the symptoms began.

This would indicate that IBS
is a common yet puzzling
medical diagnosis.

IBS Therapies
Biochemical Balancing

At the Calgary Centre for Irritable Bowel Syndrome we offer a comprehensive approach with proven therapies that address the cause of the digestive issues. This approach to IBS includes a treatment plan that addresses all levels of health in order to achieve total physiological healing.

Biochemical Balancing is addressed through dietary and supplement plan. It also may involve IV nutrient therapy.

Dietary recommendations

  • An Anti-Inflammatory diet is recommend to reduce the inflammation in the digestive tract. The chronic inflammation caused by eating foods that cannot be effective metabolized leads to stress in the body and drains the adrenal glands and congests the liver.

Supplement Plan

  • The supplement plan is designed to support weakened systems of the body and re-establish an internal healing environment.

  • We offer an extensive and highly specialized medicinary that features leading-edge products imported from all over the world.

Intravenous (I.V.) Nutrient Therapy

I.V. Nutrient Therapy helps support optimal health by delivering vitamins and minerals directly to our cells. I.V. administration of nutrients can achieve serum concentrations not attainable with oral routes, as digestion and absorption are not an issue.

Parenteral Therapy

Parenteral Therapy is Intravenous (I.V.) therapy and injection (intramuscular, subcutaneous) of vitamins, minerals and homeopathics. It is a safe and effective way to deliver nutrients in a timely and efficient manner.

IBS IV Therapy

Par-enteral means substances given by this route are directly absorbed into the circulatory system, by-passing the “enteric system” or gastro-intestinal tract and liver, thereby increasing the absorptive capability of the individual.

Advantages of Parenteral Therapy

For individuals with compromised intestinal absorption (I.E. Cancer, Crohn's disease, Irritated Bowel Syndrome, ulcerative colitis, etc.), I.V. therapy allows for 100% absorption of the nutrients delivered and thereby offers enormous therapeutic value over oral administration.

In addition, I.V. therapy enables rapid delivery of higher concentrations of medicines that may otherwise not be possible by oral means. Therefore, for individuals who are severely depleted or in need of high and rapid absorption of nutrients, I.V. therapy is extremely beneficial and strongly recommended.

Intramuscular (and in some cases, subcutaneous) injection of nutrients (I.E. B12, folic acid) also allows for higher absorption of the substance being administered and since the skin and muscle act as a time-release delivery system, smaller amounts of nutrient are absorbed (although more completely than by oral means) over a period of time.

What Substances are Administered?

The type of Parenteral Therapy (meaning I.V. and/or injection) will vary depending on the condition and the purpose of the treatment. Naturopathic treatment is individualized according to the patient and the treatment goals. Various vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, botanicals, anti-oxidants and homeopathics may be safely administered parenterally to enhance the therapeutic response and it is often prescribed as part of a complete, holistic and individualized treatment plan.
