Dear Friend:

Hi my name is Dr. Albert Snow. I am a Naturopath with 30
years of experience using natural medicine to successfully
treat Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which includes conditions
like IBS, Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Diverticulitis and Leaky Gut
Syndrome.

In addition to the physical symptoms of these diseases, you
may also be suffering from psychological and emotional
frustration, even anger and/or depression. These effects often
accompany the physical condition because you don't know exactly what's going on and how you will
be able to heal - and resume your normal life.

I have great news – you can get your life back when you have IBD!

Here’s the issue that is holding you back: You need to understand that conventional medicine only
treats your symptoms, not the causes. We need to get to the root of the problem. Gastrointestinal
issues are degenerative in nature - you need to rebuild the affected tissue using natural medicine,
which is something conventional medicine cannot do.

IBS, Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Leaky Gut Syndrome - these are all conditions of degeneration where the
tissue has wasted away. But it can be rebuilt, using natural substances which the tissue is actually
made of. Doing so brings about a cure that is permanent.

All of my patients see improvement in the first 30 days. 95% of my patients are healed in three
months. My method leads to permanent improvement.

The short tips in this guide will give you additional insight into my philosophies and treatment
protocols.

To your health!

Dr. Snow

IBS Support: 5 Frequently Asked Questions about Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I have been a holistic gastroenterologist for over 3 decades, and my line of work involves

providing people with IBS support. This has brought me into contact with many clients who ask

a lot of questions out of curiosity about their condition. There were some queries that kept

recurring.


                                       So, I decided to come up with a collection of questions

                                       that are frequently asked as far as my IBS support

                                       practice is concerned.


                                       Q: Can IBS be classified as an Auto-Immune Disease?


                                       A: Inflammatory Bowel Disease can certainly not be

classified as an auto-immune disease because it is definitely not a disease at all. When one

looks at it critically, you will note that the immune system does not attack the colon in IBS,

Colitis, Ulcerative Colitis, or Crohn's disease. On the contrary, your immune system does its job

by trying to help you.


A good example is if I cut my finger. The immune system will take charge of the situation and it

works by a means referred to as "compliment." This is an old-school term that explains how
                                                              Docume nt Ti tle H ere Page |4

the immune system goes about doing its work. The immune system usually becomes active

locally and it acts by preventing the finger from getting infected. As much as it is active in this

process, I cannot blame my immunity system for my cut finger. The same concept can be

applied to the colon. In as much as the immune system becomes active, it cannot be held

responsible for damaging the colon lining. On the contrary, it tries to act to prevent infection

while at the same time trying to facilitate the healing process. Yet we still prescribe some

drugs to help suppress the immune system.


Q: Can IBS be caused by NSAIDS?


A: One can easily get NSAIDS or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs over the counter. There

are some, like aspirin and ibuprofen, which do not need a prescription. These are not known

to cause IBS directly. They may cause stomach upsets due to their acidity but they are not

responsible for conditions like IBD. However, they may worsen an already existing situation,

especially before antibiotics have been used. Because of this, the NSAID may be able to

penetrate the porous mucosal lining and end up irritating the wall of the GI tract.


Q: Is IBD hereditary?


A: This is not exactly the case. There may be some genetic tendencies for some body systems

to develop a weakness towards a particular disease. As far as the gastro-intestinal problems
                                                               Docume nt Ti tle H ere Page |5

are concerned, people do not get IBD without there being other underlying factors. What does

"run in the family" are people who frequently use antibiotics. This environmental factor may

affect the genetic tendencies and increase the chances of getting Crohn's disease or IBS.


Q: Some of my doctors are recommending the use of colonics as a means of increasing my

fiber. Is that an idea worth taking up?


A: This is not recommended because it will only worsen the situation. Considering the colon

lining is already inflamed, it is not a good idea to worsen this by dragging roughage over it. It

is, however, a good idea to eat a diet that is low in fiber.


Q: Why is it hard for some Naturopaths to fix leaky gut syndrome?


A: Naturopaths are paths are good at treating most general problems. Problems that affect the

colon are very complex and thus require Naturopaths who specialize in them. Unfortunately,

most of them shy away from this condition. I have been dealing with this for 30 plus years to

the point of developing my own Gastro-enterology method.
