Irritable bowel syndrome. Diet for IBS.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is not to be confused with IBS. Many people commonly consider IBS as part of IBD, which is not so.
IBS is also called spastic colon. IBS is also called a stressed bowel. It’s more of a functional bowel disorder with abdominal pain, diarrhea and/or constipation. The functional disorder means that the bowel doesn't function or work properly.
You know when you are in irritable mood. The same kind of thing happens to the bowel. And boy, don’t you feel it when the bowel is irritable?
In IBS mostly the symptoms are treated whereas in IBD the inflammation has to be treated first. There is no inflammatory component with IBS (no fevers, no joint pains, etc.).
I've seen many IBS patients in my Functional medicine practice and I've resolved many, many IBS cases with Functional diagnostic tests. The wellness program I design for them is safe, more natural and easy to follow.

What is irritable bowel syndrome?
IBS is gastrointestinal, digestive disease that makes the life a bit more complicated.
First, when diagnosing with IBS, your physician may want to rule out causes such as viral or bacterial infection, IBD, Celiac disease, etc.
Learning stress relief techniques and making dietary changes are recommended in this condition.
Irritable bowel syndrome cause.
IBS cause is still unknown. And there’s no cure. Crohn’s disease cause is also unknown. In fact, many other gastrointestinal diseases don’t have a known cause. There are possible causes that were studied like genetic, environmental and dietary causes. But nothing was conclusive.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms.
Very common IBS symptoms are abdominal pain, bloating, cramping, gas pain, problematic bowel habits and flatulence.
IBS is not genetic or inherited. IBS is not contagious. IBS is not associated with cancer developments later on in life like autoimmune gastrointestinal diseases. IBS interferes with your relationships, your work, and your life.
And if you are proactively looking to get better, you are in the right place or on the right website, at least. I try to find best possible natural ways to heal gastrointestinal diseases like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, Celiac disease and IBS. My goal is to help you heal yourself with integrative medicinal approach. I am a pharmacist but I don’t necessarily recommend medications here even though I know the medications very well. I recommend healing options for you as a digestive disease patient.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome Diet.
The diet for irritable bowel syndrome may be the most important part of healing IBS to my opinion.
You would need to start a journal and write down ALL the foods you consume. It’s very important. The intolerance to certain foods may be the only problem in your case of IBS. To start the proper diet for IBS you would need to eat just basic foods that usually never give you the problem. Then, you could start adding more foods slowly, watching how it affects you.
It would be beneficial if tried elimination diet as a first step.
But what is the most important thing you need to do when taking fiber form food or from pills? You need to drink enough of water. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Otherwise the fiber will only constipate you.
Conventional medicines for irritable bowel syndrome is the traditional IBS treatment :
There are few other Rx medications that are under studies and not available on the market yet.
I wish you to stay symptom free!
