Has IBS Forced You to Know All Bathroom Locations?
What is IBS?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects 1 in 5 adults in the United States. IBS symptoms can include bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation to the more life-threatening colorectal cancer. These symptoms can cause illnesses and diseases in the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
IBS is a common digestive system disorder, or known as ‘inflammation of the colon’. Many people experience “spastic colon” consisting of a repeatable cycle of stomach pain, diarrhea or constipation, bloating, and mucus in stools.
What Causes IBS?
The medical field does not know what causes IBS. There appears the communication between the brain and intestines become confused and disrupted. This miscommunication can cause abnormal intestinal muscle contractions. Anyone can develop IBS, more common in women, and there can be a family history.
IBS Remedy Options
The first step toward managing IBS is to identify what food triggers symptoms. There are no specific foods linked to IBS symptom flareups. A blood food intolerance test can help determine what can aggravate the gastrointestinal system. Another culprit is managing stress, understand hormonal changes, and certain medications can trigger IBS flareups.

Food Dairy can help pinpoint which foods are problems, such as caffeine, alcohol, and fatty foods. Adding more fiber or water may also improve the digestive process. Research as shown that by adding more healthy bacteria such as probiotics or prebiotics and omega oils
