Question
Respected Doctor:I am syed ali ul ahsan naqvi a 35 year old male from rawalpindi pakistan. My height is 171 cms 5 feet 8 inches and i weight around 69 kilograms.Sir My parents tell me that even when i was an infant i had this severe problem of loose unformed stools and my parents were extremely worried regarding which milk would suit me?Then i grew a bit older and even then my parents tell that they used to check my faeces/stool and it was either loose or so much unformed and un digested that they could see all undigested vegetables and fruits in my faeces/stools.Then in matriculation i started a little weight lifting at home.And probably due to exercise my health and digestion improved a bit.That was the period when i used to eat a lot without having this issue of loose stool and i became healthy.Then again after doing Intermediate i again had this problem of loose stools.I kept on losing significant weight and appeared weak and skinny.Another thing to mention here is that since childhood I also had ENT related issues like blocked nose sinusitis throat infections swollen tonsils etc. When I was about 25 years old I consulted a senior professor of gastro enterology in Rawalpindi Pakistan,and that gastro enterologist got all my routine blood tests like blood cp blood esr blood LFT and also got my barium enema test. All test reports were clear and didn?t show any disease.The senior gastro enterologist diagnosed IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME and prescribed me medicines.It was around year 2005.Since then I have this issue that for few months after taking medicines I become healthy gain weight and issue of loose stools becomes settled but again after few months same problem again re appears. Sir! I have consulted around 6 senior gastro enterologists during these years and I have taken a lot of medicines like ventek librax debridat folic acid pavoxin cr entamizole ds capsule gut care flaggyl enflor atarax amylein aracol ecotec lomotil zeespa tofranil seroxait colofac mercip oxy tetracycline slazopyrin leflox axcin paraxyl prothiadine xifaxa nasacol kestine .There was another gastro enterologist who tested me for anti transglutaminase IGA but results were all normal. Sir I have also tried few homeopathics and traditional asian medicine specialists famous by the title of hakeem in Pakistan. Sir my gastro enterologists dis agreed on the issue of using ispaghol husk and I experienced very positive outcomes by using ispaghol husk on empty stomach but just for few weeks.Later problem relapsed. Sir please advise me what can I do? Syed ali ul ahsan naqvi Rawalpindi Pakistan  

Answer
Dear Syed ali ul ahsan,

I personally do not believe in IBS. It is “garbage can” diagnosis, when the real reason is not known.
You were checked by many doctors and your tests were unremarkable. You took antibiotics and other drugs without changes in your condition.
I presume functional gastrointestinal disorder, low pancreatic function, possible dysbiosis (Candida-yeast overgrowth, SIBO-small intestine bacterial overgrowth), intestinal parasites, food allergy, and dysbalance of the neurotransmitters in the brain, and intestines with visceral hypersensitivity, anxiety, etc.

I treat those conditions with
•   Healing diet
•   Acupuncture
•   Colon Hydrotherapy
•   probiotics
•   Vitamins C, D, B-12
•   Magnesium
•   Digestive enzymes
•   Herbal medicine (anti Candida, spices, anti spasmodic, normalizing stool, etc)
•   Relaxation technique, and more

It will be unprofessional to give you medical advice without knowing your medical dates. Therefore I send you to my EBook” Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”. You may find a lot of information such as why you are sick, what you have to eat and more.

I cannot feel that you have real structural problems, so relax.
You may go to Genova Diagnostic https://www.gdx.net/contact
CDSA/P (Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis/Parasitology test may help to verify the right diagnosis. I can help you with that if they work with Pakistan.

I wish you health and happiness.
