Holiday Season Brings New Hope to Millions Who Suffer from Common Chronic Health Disorder
Date:12/2/2008

British Medical Journal study finds natural, less expensive treatments are effective for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Sufferers

PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- With its feasts, travel and family gatherings, the holiday season is, for most, anticipated with excitement. But for the estimated 60 million Americans who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), the holidays can be fraught with the fear of sudden embarrassing and debilitating gastrointestinal attacks, often triggered by food or stress.

IBS is the most common chronic health disorder in the U.S. with symptoms that include abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and/or constipation. IBS has no known cure and expensive prescription drugs have disappointed millions with life threatening side effects and recalls.

In new analysis appearing in the British Medical Journal in November, researchers reexamined relatively inexpensive, safe, and readily available therapies as treatments for IBS. The article reviewed 38 studies involving more than 2,500 volunteers and found three treatments -- peppermint oil, antispasmodic drugs and soluble fiber -- to be effective. The study also indicated that significantly more people obtained some relief from peppermint oil (the most effective remedy in the analysis) than from fiber, the most common doctor-recommended remedy.

The new report is reawakening interest in natural, less expensive and side effect-free treatments for IBS like IBSuppress(R) Stabilizing Tablets, which can help manage and limit the condition's impact on quality of life. Designed for sufferers who are prone to urgency-related symptoms and diarrhea, IBSuppress(R) contains a proprietary blend of natural ingredients including peppermint oil, ginger and fennel - which are all antispasmodic herbs.

"Research shows that these herbs fight spasms, relieve pain, reduce gas and aid digestion," says IBSuppress(R) director of marketing Jamie Miller. "Our goal is to help IBS sufferers manage their condition and improve their quality of life, especially when they are away from home."

IBSuppress(R) Stabilizing Tablets are sold by DWD Consumer Products, Inc. and are available in boxes of 30 chewable tablets. They can be purchased on the company's website www.ibsuppress.com for $7.99, and at select retailers. Tablets can be taken anytime, anywhere to help maintain normal bowel function or at the first sign of an unsettled system. Sufferers are advised to consult with their physician before taking any medication, supplement or medical food.
