Research shows IBS (Otherwise known as Irratible Bowel Syndrome) effects 58 million people in the US. With a 2 to 1 Women to man ratio. Most people with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Autism have it. And numerous others with a large variety of other conditions also do. From MCS, Celiacs, ADHD, PTSD, Anxiety disorder’s, Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia, Intestinal permeability (Otherwise known as Leaky Gut), Candida, SIBO, Neurological Differences, Gut Dysbiosis, Gulf War Syndrome, Depression, and many more.
Watch this video only till the host is done showing you the insides of a colon. Although, the host is accurate that typically IBS and it’s symptoms don’t kill people. It can. 1 example of how it could kill someone (And Did) is shown in an article on my nontoxic4us blog post called, “Pooping is no laughing matter!” IBS symptoms include internal inflammation that may or may not be seen or felt inside of you/externally (However, often, it is felt). Enough internal inflammation can cause all kinds of problems- especially if it hangs around too long. Including Cancer. An external common symptom/consequence (Especially if Constipated/and most likely if you have ASD too) is bloating.
Want to learn about Sensory Processing Disorder from a female’s perspective? Not any female either. A cute 4 year old named Evie Newbold! The needs and challenges she face are the same as an adult with it. I must say out of all the SPD videos on U tube. Her’s easily is one of my favorites. If not my favorite. It’s positive, accurate, thorough, short, and really easy too watch. Check it out! It’s only 4 minutes long.
And if on facebook. Like her too! (That tells her you appreciated it and want more to come).
On my Disability Advocate one dot com blog I recently sent you to a utube video with 10 possibly inspiring people with ASD highlighted in it. The first is a savant, who you can learn more about through this documentary on utube for free. After watching it, please feel free to comment on what you thought about it, /what you learned in it. The title of this 50 minute documentary is the title of this post.
This is a very rare form of SPD that only about 4% of humans worldwide are known to have. At points, this approximately 10 minute video can be a little loud. So, this maybe sensory difficult for some with SPD however. In it, you’ll see and here about synesthesia. This is not on utube. This isn’t a Ted talk (Unlike my last Synesthesia post, with a video linked.). It is VERY different. And there are different forms of Synesthesia too. Interesting, right?
