IBS class 1?

Unread post by Harringtonflies » Wed Jun 08, 2022 3:20 pm

Hey guys I have recently been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), my symptoms are mostly mild and err on the constipation side of things. I am not on any medication for it ,however I drink green tea and have changed my diet up which helps alright. On to my question, does anyone know what the caa's stance is on IBS and the process of maintaining a class 1 medical? Thanks in advance.

My wife also suffers from mild IBS and drinks two Biogen Herbal Cleanser tablets every evening, it is natural and works wonders for constipation. It is natural and you can buy them at Dis-Chem.

She also changed her diet and that helps with the rest.
