The primary goal of treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is to reduce problematic symptoms. Standard conventional therapies include exercise, stress management techniques, a modified diet or the use of fiber supplements, laxatives and probiotics. These methods have not been shown to significantly reduce IBS symptoms.

Prescription (chemical-based) medications have been clinically proven to help those suffering from IBS. However, these drugs have potentially harmful side effects such as nausea, cramps and fever, inverse reactions (an antidiarrheal could cause constipation) as well as problems related to drug interaction. For example, Zelnorm (tegaserod) - a popular remedy used to treat IBS - was withdrawn from the US market in 2007 because of a reported risk of cardiovascular disease associated with taking the drug.

Clinical trials on dicon - a plant-based (natural) medicine with no reported side effects - are still in progress. However, initial evidence indicates that people with IBS enjoy an equal or higher level of relief from dicon than from prescription medications.

dicon actually recalibrates the body's biological systems, targeting and fixing digestive disorders. Because this medicine is natural, it helps the body to help itself - naturally. Yet dicon has no known side effects and is gentle enough to use everyday.
