2. Mint And Fennel

Fennel, taken as a tea or tincture, has carminative, antispasmodic, and stomachic properties. In fact, it helps reduce digestive cramping, spasms, gas, and bloating. Plus, it’s safe to use if you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, leaky gut syndrome, Celiac’s disease, and intestinal candidiasis (8).

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 cups purified or distilled water
  • Fresh fennel seeds
  • Fresh peppermint leaves
  • Raw organic honey (optional)

Directions:

  1. Chop the herb stalks and leaves to encourage the release of oils.
  2. Add the herbs to a large glass measuring cup or bowl.
  3. Pour boiling water over the herbs and steep (covered) for about 20 minutes. The longer you steep it, the stronger it gets. Covering the tea while steeping prevents the evaporation of medicinal oils.
  4. Strain the herbs from the tea and add honey to taste, if desired.
  5. Drink 1–3 cups daily to relieve your IBS symptoms.

3. Do a Parasite Cleanse

Believe it or not, a parasitic infection can mimic the signs and symptoms of IBS. According to the IBS treatment Center: “The severity of your symptoms and the amount of damage they cause varies depending on the parasite involved, the number of parasites, and the level of resistance your body has.”(11)

Parasites cause these symptoms by robbing your body of precious nutrients and turning your organs into their home. They can damage your tissues and organs as well as make their way into other parts of your body.

Parasites can be found in contaminated water (including lakes and ponds), uncooked produce, raw meat, and in animal feces (like those of your pets). To get rid of them, try this remedy.
