Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder that can affect people of all ages. 10 to 15% of the population in the United States suffers from IBS symptoms. Studies show that stress, anxiety and IBS tend to co-exist; these triggers deplete the body of good intestinal bacteria which are beneficial for digestion. An imbalanced gut flora with high harmful bacteria level leads to a build-up of toxins and intestinal wastes that age and weaken the health of the intestines.

 

Although IBS is not life-threatening, its symptoms can be disabling to one’s lifestyle. A solution to relieve the symptoms of IBS can definitely improve your quality of life immensely.

 

Here are some tips that may be helpful to you:

  • Chew food slowly and thoroughly.
  • Stay away from heavy meals or excessive caffeine.
  • Have regular meals everyday.
  • Avoid delaying the urge to clear your bowels.
  • Relax yourself to avoid straining while moving your bowels.
  • Exercise regularly to promote good bowel function and reduce symptoms of anxiety.
