IBS Treatment 

Before we get to your IBS treatment options, a few words about the condition. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common functional disorder of the gastrointestinal tract - your large intestine (colon), to be specific - that negatively affects what you may call your "stomach health."

It's caused by changes in how the GI tract functions and not due to any abnormality or damage to its structure.

It, more often that not, first develops in teenagers and young adults, but can occur at any age and is often associated with stress. It affects almost twice as many women as men. Effective IBS treatment aims to restore Your overall "stomach health" by restoring proper functioning of the GI tract.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms

IBS symptoms vary from individual to individual. Some may have occasional mild symptoms. Others, long term disturbing symptoms. Most individuals, however, tend to fall somewhere in between those two extremes, with occasional flare-ups now and then. IBS symptoms include:

  • Lower abdominal pain or cramping that is often eased by passing wind or stool
  • Stomach bloating and gas
  • Alternating diarrhea or constipation - or bouts of both
  • The urgent need to move bowels upon waking up, during or after meals
  • A feeling that the bowels have not been fully evacuated after passing a motion
  • Pain relief after bowel movements
  • Presence of mucus in the stool

The one saving grace about IBS is that it does not cause deep-rooted damage or lead to the development of serious bowel conditions such as colitis or cancer.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Categories

  • Diarrhea-dominant: Diarrhea is experienced first thing in the morning, or after meals. The need to rush to the toilet is overwhelming - it cannot wait! This sometimes causes incontinence
  • Constipation-dominant: Constipation alternates with normal stools. Abdominal pains and/or cramping are usually triggered by eating
  • Constipation and diarrhea alternation

Common IBS Triggers

The fundamental causes of irritable bowel syndrome are still unknown.  However, it's suspected to be caused by changes in how the GI tract functions. Certain factors have been known to ‘trigger’ attacks in vulnerable individuals. These include:

  • Infection: An illness such as gastroenteritis may result in persistent bowel symptoms long after the original causative pathogens have been wiped out
  • Brain-gut signal malfunctions: Problems with signals between the brain and nerves of the small and large intestines that control how they work may trigger changes in bowel habits and cause abdominal pain or discomfort
  • General diet: Diets low in fiber can aggravate constipation-dominant IBS. Foods loaded with spices and sugars may cause complications in others
  • Emotional stress: Intense emotions such as stress or anxiety may affect the nerves of the gut in vulnerable individuals. Proof that problems of the gut are sometimes linked to the brain
  • Medications: Some drugs e.g antacids, painkillers and antibiotics may cause constipation or diarrhea.

Other IBS triggers that are often overlooked but equally significant are :

  • Lack of hydrochloric Acid: Low levels of stomach acid results in poor digestion of food and subsequent poor nutrient absorption. This may lead to development of bacterial and protozoal infections and allergic reactions to incompletely digested food
  • Inflammation of the gastrointestinal System: This may lead to a vicious cycle of toxic substances leaking into the bloodstream, food allergies, fatigue, gas, constipation and diarrhea
  • Harmfull bacteria: Your gut is home to naturally occurring bacteria. Some, like probiotics, are beneficial. However, when harmful bacteria dominate, awful things - like IBS - happen
