IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME

By Runal Keronil

Irritable bowel syndrome affects millions of Americans, many of them not even realizing that the symptoms they feel are not normal. Some suffer from severe constipation, while others deal with diarrhea. Other symptoms are gas and bloating. According to the Mayo Clinic, as many as 1 in 5 adults has irritable bowel syndrome.

Regular Exercise
We now know that stress is a factor that causes IBS, stress management can be controlled by exercising daily and by using relaxation techniques. Physical exercise works the bowel muscles and this is very beneficial for constipation. Some examples of exercises includes simple stretches, walking, stretching and yoga are all very helpful in relieving IBS.

Fortunately, plenty of great foods can be enjoyed on an IBS diet. In fact, there are some foods that can actually help IBS symptoms. These include many fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Stress is another possible cause of irritable bowel syndrome. Even though stress in and of itself might not be the cause, it can aggravate the symptoms during periods of higher stress and while a person is trying to adapt to a significant change in their life. Half of people who will deal with irritable bowel syndrome are under 35 years of age and young women are more at risk. Women may be more at risk because of hormonal changes related to menstruation.

Normal digestion occurs when the muscles in the intestines contract to move food and waste through the body. Irritable bowel syndrome is usually caused by those muscles contracting harder and longer than in a normal person without the syndrome. Doctors usually diagnose a person with irritable bowel syndrome after several tests have ruled out more serious problems.
