What is IBS?

The stomach is one of the most important and sensitive organs in the human body, which must digest quite a few other challenges in addition to food. One of the most elusive and common among these challenges is Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which affects no less than 25% of the population (70% of them are women).

The IBS is a clinical phenomena that comes and goes. The most common symptom of IBS is pain in the lower abdomen, however, since there is no definitive medical diagnosis for this condition, there are several criteria that help determine who has this condition. If you experience more than one of the following symptoms, it is important that you consult a doctor.


What are the symptoms of IBS?

• Diarrhea – occurs in one third of the people suffering from this syndrome.
• Gas and bloating – a very common symptom, mostly among women.
• Sensitivity to food – 70% of the people with IBS reported sensitivity to certain types of food.
• Constipation, a feeling of incomplete evacuation of bowel contents, which occurs due to a slow bowel movement.
• Abdominal pain and cramps – a very common phenomena. The pain resolves after emptying your bowels.

IBS is not a one-time phenomenon, it can accompany you throughout life. There are quite a few granny’s remedies for IBS, however, modern medicine has yet to find a cure for it. At the same time, there are several elements in our lifestyle and medicines which can improve the condition. Some of them are:

  • Reducing stress, changing your daily schedule. You would be amazed how much these small changes can achieve.
  • Use dietary supplements for the digestive system. Many of them contain herbs that are known to help treat digestive problems – medicinal herbs like Sage and Alfalfa (lucerne), which were proven to provide relief for the digestive system and help treat its problems.
  • Maintain a proper diet – avoid food types known as digestive system stimulants (milk, chocolate, alcohol, etc.) or hard-to-digest vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, etc.).
  • Monitor how different foods affect how you feel to understand what to avoid and what to include in your menu.
  • Probiotic products can also help your bowels and digestive system to function properly.
