Gastric issues - no meds

I have digestive issues such as IBS, weight loss, constipation, bloating, bacterial overgrowth, fatigue, poor concentration. My health didn't improve from any allopathic or ayurvedic treatment(Medanta, Fortis, Baba Ramdev, Acharya Bal Krishna,etc). Met with a doctor and he told me that no medicine can give a cure, and our body has the ability to heal itself. He asked me to control my stress, perform excercise and yoga, make a daily routine. By following them, I have already started feeling better. Is it true that medicines cannot cure me and body heals itself? Kindly be specific.

Yes,it is true that body has an innate recuperative power.This concept is strongly believed in Naturopathy system of medicine.Our digestive system has a strong connection with our stress quotient.And that is exactly the reason you feel butterflies in stomach ,or some may even get bouts of loose bowels when u r in a highly stressed/anxious situation eg;Waiting for ur exam results, U have to do an important presentation in front a large group of potential clients etc etc.In the same way IBS is strongly related to ur stress levels n that's y u r feeling better with Yoga.Meditation, Pranayama,breathing exercises n relaxation techniques in Yoga helps to manage stress. Certain lifestyle modifications as mentioned by Dr.Chetan has to be incorporated.

Hi....., Eat at regular times. Don't skip meals, and try to eat about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function..... Avoid problem foods. If certain foods make your signs and symptoms worse, don't eat them. These may include alcohol, chocolate, caffeinated beverages such as coffee and sodas, medications that contain caffeine, dairy products.... Eat smaller meals. Avoid overeating by eating smaller meals. Don't lie down after a meal. Wait at least three hours after eating before lying down or going to bed.
