Irritable bowel: Irritable bowel is primarily a disorder of unsynchronized peristalsis. One common cause is dysbiosis. Leaky gut or cellular disruption of mucosal gap junctions is a common factor. Dietary factors can help. Assessing for delayed food allergies which leads to an appropriate elimination diet can help. Probiotics, glyconutrients, digestive enzymes have been shown to improve the problem.
