Inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common gastrointestinal disorder in the U.S., affecting an estimated 30 million people. Persons with this condition suffer symptoms that can include painful bloating, constipation, diarrhea or an alternating pattern of both. Most individuals try to avoid social interactions because they are embarrassed by their symptoms.
Similarly, an estimated 1.4 million Americans have Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or IBD, a chronic digestive disorder. About 30,000 new cases are diagnosed annually. Ulcerative colitis, one of the most common types of IBD, causes inflammation and ulcers in the top layers of the lining of the large intestine. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, bleeding, fatigue, weight loss and loss of appetite. According to statistics, ulcerative colitis patients can be at increased risk of developing colorectal cancer.
From the RBTI Perspective IBS and IBD are really two variations on a theme. And many researchers are agreeing that IBS and IBD are interrelated diseases, noting that patients with IBD experience IBS-like symptoms when their IBD is in remission. A 3-year study found that patients diagnosed with IBS were 16.3 times more likely to be diagnosed with IBD during the study period. Serum markers associated with inflammation have also been found in patients with IBS. Some researchers have suggested that IBS is a type of low-grade inflammatory bowel disease.
What is amazing is that researchers are not even close to addressing the cause of IBS/IBD, as far as RBTI is concerned. Newer research blames the overgrowth of microorganisms. For example, a Cedars-Sinai study concludes that bacterial overgrowth is definitively linked to IBS. While another very recent study, from the same institution, identified and characterized a large community of fungi inhabiting the large intestine as a key in IBD. Researchers admit that fungi have existed in the gut, but until now have never been studied as to what types, how many and whether they’re important in disease. Now, they claim to be seeing linkages to digestive disorders.
Which begs the critical question these researchers are obviously not asking. What is providing the free room and board for all these microorganisms to even exist in the quantities research has shown?
This is a most critical question. It is exactly like the question that horticultural researchers never ask regarding the cause of a disease that affects stone fruit trees known as “bacterial gummosis” or “bacterial canker”—also two variations on a theme just like IBS & IBD.
According to horticultural scientists, bacterial gummosis and canker is caused by a microorganism getting into and affecting the cambium or growth layer where the sap flows under the outer bark of a stone fruit tree (e.g., peaches, cherries, apricots, plums). They thoroughly believe that bacteria (known as Pseudomonas) are the real cause because when they test the gummosis and canker contents they find an over-growth of those microorganisms, when, in fact, the micro organisms are only a symptom of the cause. By believing that the cause is microorganisms, the so-called “cure” is to use anything that will get rid of the organisms. In ISB & IBD that means the use of antibiotics will become the treatment of choice to “cure” IBS and IBD based on the newest research. “This new study confirms what our findings with the antibiotic and our previous studies always led us to believe: Bacteria are key contributors to the cause of IBS. This clear evidence of the role bacteria play in the disease underscores our clinical trial findings, which show that antibiotics are a successful treatment for IBS.”
It is unbelievable and a gross shame that researchers remain so narrow in their interpretation of information, while at the same time totally believing they have found the cause—when, in fact, they are only looking at a symptom of the real cause.
Yes, the digestive tract is certainly home to a very large number of micro-organisms. There is an estimated 100 trillion bacteria that call the gut home. In fact, microbes in the gut outnumber human cells in the body. Under healthy conditions most are necessary to aid in digesting food, producing necessary vitamins and suppressing the growth of harmful microorganisms. Others, under the wrong electrochemical conditions, are harmful to the body, contributing to illnesses such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and other IBS and IBD related conditions. Until orthodox researchers begin to understand what the real cause is behind all disease, even IBS & IBD, symptom treatments will continue to rule the day.
I want to be perfectly clear, the real cause of IBS/IBD in the human and the bacterial gummosis/canker in a fruit tree, has been truly revealed by the science and technology of Reams’ Biological Theory of Ionization. You see, RBTI has demonstrated a deeper issue as the cause of the microorganism proliferation discovered in both IBS and IBD. The deeper issue is the real cause. The fundamental reserve mineral savings account has been depleted to such an extent that free room and board is being supplied for the IBS & IBD symptoms aggravating organisms to proliferate unabated. IBS & IBD, like all disease, is caused by a mineral deficiency and the overgrowth of problematic microorganisms is nothing more than the result of conditions being created that invite and favor the proliferation of the microorganisms researcher’s have found associated with IBS & IBD. In other words, the microorganisms are the symptom of an underlying mineral deficiency cause.
The cause of IBS & IBD, as defined by RBTI, is really the fundamental cause of all disease no matter how medical science labels it. Yes, Dr. Reams was probably one of the earliest researchers to reveal that all disease is caused by a lack of adequate and proper mineral in the diet. He found that the foods being commercially grown and processed for consumption by the public have less than 20 to 30 percent of the mineral necessary to sustain a long healthy life. Moreover, food mineral deficiencies begin with the soil upon which the food is grown. If the farmer or gardener is not attentive to supplying the full complement of minerals needed to grow their crops to the highest possible brix levels (i.e., nutrient density, as measured by a refractometer in brix units), those crops will only be contributing to the rampant sickness that we continue to experience around us daily.
The only way to be sure that you are getting the minerals that your body totally requires, from your diet, is to use mineral supplements. The only way to accurately know what minerals and vitamins are needed to help your body utilize these vital minerals is to “go by the numbers.” In this case the “numbers” refer to the RBTI urine and saliva test results. These test results provide the only reference point by which a diet and supplement program can be accurately and individually engineered and monitored for maximum health and wellbeing. In this new age of socialized medicine, RBTI is real health care at its best.
