Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) 11650...India

In Oct 2022, a 13-year-old boy with BMI of 25, started to have 3 or 4 bowel movements a day (normally once) with moderately hard stools, accompanied by slight abdominal discomfort and an urgency to defecate soon after each meal, irrespective of the portion size. By 15 Dec, the frequency went up to 7 or 8 times. with abdominal cramps and discomfort. The boy kept this to himself until his mother noticed his frequent trips to the washroom. In the past few days, there was decline in his appetite and reluctance to eat owing to fear of visiting the washroom soon after. 

On 20 Dec 2022, he was diagnosed with IBS and found relief with allopathic medication. However, upon stopping the medication, his symptoms recurred. He grew cautious about his diet, taking only mild spicy food and avoiding outside food. In March 2023, as he also developed anal pain, he was prescribed oral medicines along with a topical ointment. Normally he used only the ointment, reserving the tablets for severe symptoms which provided temporary relief only. He managed in this way for months until the parents discovered vibrionics. At the time of consultation on 3 Jan 2024, the boy presented with frequent stools with abdominal cramps and anal pain, which began that morning. The mother also confided that her son, typically reserved, shied away from interaction with anyone except his parents. Exclusively opting for vibrionics, he stopped other medicines. He was given: 

For digestive problems: 

 #1. CC4.2 Liver & Gallbladder tonic + CC4.6 Diarrhoea + CC4.8 Gastroenteritis + CC4.10 Indigestion + CC10.1 Emergencies…6TD for five days followed by TDS 

For emotional wellbeing:

Within five days by 8 Jan, abdominal cramps vanished, with stool frequency coming down to 4 or 5 times a day. By 16 Jan, he was passing normal stools only twice a day and anal pain had disappeared. Furthermore, much to his parents’ joy, the boy looked happier, more confident and started to mingle with others! By 22 Jan, his appetite returned and he was passing motion once a day. His parents were relieved that he no longer needed allopathic medication. On 1 Feb, #1 and #2 were combined and the dosage was reduced to BD and in two weeks to OD which he continues.

As of 20 April 2024, the boy is just fine and is taking treatment for his overweight.
