Take Care OF Your Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Over the last years, an increasing number of men and women have started feeling problems in their colon and they have discovered that they suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, also usually known by its acronym IBS. There are millions of people that suffer from this condition and it can really have a very negative impact on their overall health.

Doctors, nutritionists, and health experts in general have still to agree on which triggers this condition but they are almost sure that the stress in which we live our daily lives and the fact that many a time we forget to follow a healthy and well balanced diet have a lot to do with the irritable bowel syndrome. In fact, recent studies have shown that those who suffer from this condition are usually very nervous people or people who usually get over anxious.

Unfortunately, there are almost none really effective medical treatments that can help patients that suffer from irritable bowel syndrome not to feel so badly. Most of the time they are given pain killers to sooth the pain and some relaxing pills. However recent studies have convincingly demonstrated that following a healthy and well balanced diet can have a long positive effect on these patients.

If you suffer from IBS and are tired of the constant alternation of abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea and bloating, this article is great for you.

As the irritable bowel syndrome is experienced in a different way but all patients and not all of them have the same symptoms, developing a diet tailored suit to your needs may imply some trial and error.

One of the most important strategies you can follow in your IBS diet is to avoid certain foods and drinks that have proven to worsen or trigger the so much unwanted symptoms. It is of utmost importance that you avoid drinking plenty of coffee and fizzy drinks as they may irritate your stomach and bowels which are particularly sensitive. Fizzy and non fizzy alcoholic drinks should also been avoided. As regards foods, say goodbye to processed and canned foods and make sure that all the dairy products you take are low in lactose. Needless to say, fatty and sugary snacks should also be avoided.

It is also very important that you take your time to eat your daily meals. Avoid rushing or eating in a stressing environment as this only leads you to adding gas to your stomach and belly, which only leads you to feeling bloat late in the afternoon.

Many sufferers of the IBS have also found that splitting their meals into smaller ones help them cope with the symptoms. They have also tried slowly adding fiber to their diet.
