Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable Bowel syndrome is a chronic disorder that interferes with the normal functions of the colon. IBS affects up to 20% of the population. It is more common in women than men, and is often diagnosed between the ages of 30 and 50. It can, and does, affect people in other age groups as well.
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
Irritable bowel syndrome is a condition that involves the muscles in the intestines. Normally these muscles tighten and release in a regular pattern to move waste through the intestines. However with IBS it is believed that the contractions may be too fast (causing diarrhea), slow (causing constipation), or go back and forth between both. That’s why it is called “irritable” bowel syndrome.

Diet (During treatment)
Last spring, after a vacation trip, I suddenly began having extremely uncomfortable symptoms of what seemed to be a digestive disorder, constipation, gas, belching after meals, a feeling of being stuffed, even when I hadn't eaten, anorexia, nausea, a burning feeling in my stomach a feeling of discomfort in my throat, a feeling, in general, of not being well. My doctor did many tests, all of which showed nothing wrong. Her final diagnosis was that, most likely, I was suffering with acid reflux and IBS. After several months of trying everything my doctor recommended, without much improvement, I saw Dr. Yang. I began seeing him twice a week at first and gradually, now, I see him once a week. His treatments have made my symptoms virtually disappear; I am so much better! I also have more energy and just feel better in general. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Yang to anyone suffering
with acid reflux and IBS
I have suffered with irritable bowel syndrome for 4 years and had tried everything from medication to eliminating different foods from my diet to reiki but nothing worked. I had numerous GP and specialists visits, and had a serious of tests carried out but all the result came back with no abnormalities. However I felt there was something seriously wrong with me as I woke up every morning with pains in my stomach and struggled to find the energy to get through the day. I also felt extremely anxious and nervous, just not quite right. I felt a difference after the first session. I no longer have the pains and bloating or the anxious feelings. Overall I feel a lot better and more like myself. I found Dr. Yang to be highly professional and genuine. I enjoyed my treatments and will continue with them for the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Yang as an acupuncturist and would advise anyone suffering from IBS to make an appointment IBS
