SCENERIO# 1: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Cleansing and fasting:
Begin with the mucusless diet to cleanse the body.
Diet, nutrition and self-care:
Risk factors may include a low-fiber diet, emotional stress, use of laxatives, a bout of infectious diarrhea, or other temporary bowel inflammation. Diet is also plays a major role in IBS. Some doctors believe that food allergies cause some cases of IBS, although studies have been mixed. Fatty foods, artificial sweeteners
(sucralose or Splenda and saccharine or Sweet'N Low), chemical additives (dyes and preservatives), red meat, dairy products (such as milk, cheese, and sour cream), chocolate, alcohol, and carbonated beverages (sodas) may trigger or aggravate episodes in some people. Gluten contained in wheat and barley can also be a problem for some people with IBS. Some doctors believe food allergies may be a trigger of IBS, at least for some people. The most common food allergens are dairy products, wheat, corn, peanuts, citrus, soy, eggs, fish, and tomatoes. Your health care provider may recommend an elimination diet, where foods that are suspected of causing an allergic reaction are eliminated from your diet, then gradually added back to see which food trigger symptoms. Eating a healthy diet that includes mainly fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may help. If gas is a problem, you may want to avoid beans, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, apple juice, grape juice, bananas, nuts, and raisins. These tips may also help:
 Avoid refined foods such as white breads, pastas, and sugar.
 Eat fewer red meats and more lean meats, cold-water fish, tofu (soy, if no allergy) or beans for protein.
 Use healthy cooking oils, such as olive oil or coconut oil.
 Reduce or eliminate trans-fatty acids, found in commercially baked goods such as cookies, crackers, cakes, French fries, onion rings, donuts, processed foods, and margarine
 Take fiber supplements to help reduce pain, cramping, and gas.
 Avoid caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, and tobacco.
 Stay away from sugar substitutes (such as sorbitol and mannitol), which can trigger symptoms in some people.  Drink 6 - 8 glasses of filtered or distilled water daily.
 Exercise 30 minutes daily, 5 days a week.

Modalities for care:
Treatment involves stress reduction, so gentle yoga and massage can assist with reducing stress; consult with a physician to determine an underlying cause, which can be a contributing factor in IBS.
Specific herbs that are useful and their preparations and dosages:
Dr. Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula, Blood Purifying Formula, Gas-Eze Formula, peppermint tea or oil capsules, slippery elm bark, fenugreek seed, and cranberry fruit.

SCENERIO #2: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Cleansing and fasting:
Begin with the mucusless diet to cleanse the body.
Diet, nutrition and self-care:
Chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms could be muscle pain, severe headaches, impaired memory or mental concentration, insomnia, painful lymph nodes, sore throat, gastro intestinal problems such as bloating, constipation, nausea, and even, sensitivity to light, noise, alcohol and certain foods. Unfortunately, the cause of
CFS has not yet been identified. Scientists believe that it could have multiple causes including immune dysfunction, very low blood pressure, infections, stress, and nutritional deficiency, although evidence is lacking for nutritional defects in people with CFS. It is, however, known that CFS patients are a high cardiovascular risk category. So, this factor should be taken into account
