What is IBS?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, in short IBS, also called irritable colon, nervous colon or spastic colon, is a common gastro-intestinal disorder caused by abnormally increased motility of the small and large intestines. Motility refers to the rhythmic muscle contractions that push fecal matter through the large intestine. The longer it takes for the muscle contractions to move fecal matter, the dryer the stool becomes and the harder it becomes to pass. On the other hand, if muscle spasms push fecal matter too rapidly, water can not be absorbed into the stool resulting in diarrhea. IBS causes abdominal pain and can lead to constipation or diarrhea. There is no cure for ibs, at the same time, ibs does not seem to cause other diseases such as cancer.

Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

  • abdominal pain & discomfort
  • hypersensitivity of the intestinal tract
  • imbalance of neurotransmitters
  • bloating
  • cramps
  • alternating bowel movements
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • gassiness

Symptoms typically occur after a meal and during stressful times. People who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, may also experience other gastro intestinal disorders such as acid reflux, heartburn, up-set stomach, nausea and may have difficulty swallowing. IBS symptoms typically show up from the age of 20-50 and is much more common in women than men. Some women experience IBS during their menstrual cycle. The cause of IBS is still not known. People who suffer from IBS seem to be react more strongly to certain foods and stress.

How can I prevent getting irritable bowel syndrome? 

IBS is so common in the US that as many as 1 in 5 people seem to suffer from it. Since not much is known as to what exactly causes irritable bowel syndrome, people with ibs need to learn how to manage it by controlling the symptoms with laxatives or anti-diarrhea medication, reducing stress and avoiding trigger foods. Stress and stressful events in life will cause people to go see a doctor. Stress is one of the most common triggers of ibs. Also infection of any kind can cause the intestine to become hypersensitive.

Allergies to certain foods such a gluten can cause damage to the small intestine. People who can't digest gluten are suffering from celiac disease. Either a blood test or biopsies from the intestines can determine whether a person has celiac disease.

How can I have myself tested to find out if I have IBS?

A doctor should conduct a comprehensive exam including the patients family history in regards to colon cancer, diarrhea, ibs. Symptoms such as unexplained weight loss, fever, anemia, blood in the stool, abdominal pain and other symptoms need to be taken into consideration, followed by a physical exam, laboratory tests such as stool samples, blood tests with complete blood chemistry panel looking for inflammatory diseases. The doctor would also order an endoscopic exam of the lower gastro intestinal tract or a colonoscopy. If all tests return negative for any inflammatory issues, the doctor may conclude that you are suffering from ibs, if you have had the symptoms for at least 3-4 months.

If I have IBS, how should I treat it, or learn to manage it better?

Learn to manage stress and stressful situations:

  • Find ways to relieve stress to help prevent intestinal spasms (change of job, meditation, yoga)
  • Learn to manage anxiety and depression
  • Relaxation Training
  • Breathing Techniques
  • Massage
  • Acupunture
  • Consider counseling to overcome grieve and emotional stress
  • Seek treatment for hormonal imbalance that can cause mood disorders
  • Regular Exercise
  • Sleep on a regular schedule

What kinds of foods to avoid with IBS?

Under normal circumstances, a person usually feels the need to defecate 30-60 minutes after a meal. However, people who suffer from ibs, may feel the urge to go, much quicker after a meal, due to pain caused by improper bowel movement, cramps and diarrhea. Many people feel that certain foods seem to trigger their ibs symptoms. Following is a common list of foods to avoid, in addition to the foods that you observe that are causing you discomfort and pain after a meal.

Foods to avoid:

  • Dairy products (milk, cheese)
  • Wheat (gluten sensitivity)
  • Deep fried, fatty foods
  • Vegetables that cause gas such as beans and broccoli
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Chocolate

We recommend seeing your nutrition specialist for a more personalized list of foods to avoid and food to enjoy.

What kinds of food to enjoy with IBS?

By adding 'good bacteria' such as yoghurt and acidophilus supplements, may help balance the microflora in the intestines. By adding more fiber to your diet will help reduce constipation as well help prevent diarrhea.
Slowly add more fiber to your diet, as fiber can cause gas and cramping.

  • 8 Glasses of water per day
  • Chamomile, mint, ginger tea
  • Wholegrain breads
  • Wholegrain Cereals
  • Eating at regular times helps to control bowel movement
  • Eat more fiber (vegetables, fruits)
  • Fiber Supplements
