Irritable bowel syndrome - As the name suggests affects your bowel which
is also your large intestine. It is an important part of your digestive
system which makes and stores stool. This condition is associated with
many symptoms due to which it is termed as syndrome. You may be shocked
or surprised by the number of people who are affected by this kind of a
problem. IBS cannot be termed as a disease but a functional disorder
related to the bowel. Intestinal diseases like ulcerative colitis and
Cohn’s disease can damage your intestine but IBS does not harm your
intestine through inflammation or any other methods. The key to control
this syndrome is to have a healthy and stress free lifestyle. This
syndrome puts you through lot of pain and discomfort.

Some common reasons which cause this syndrome are large meals, bloated
colon, specific medicines and food. Stress may not be directly related to
IBS but if you are suffering from IBS, stress can surely aggravate the
situation. It is known that during menstrual periods chances of IBS
increases due to change in hormonal pattern. Common symptoms which
pinpoint towards IBS are bloated stomach, abdominal pain with cramps,
diarrhea, constipation, excess gas/ flatulence, mucus in the stool.

Food becomes an important part when affected by IBS. There is no one food
which triggers this problem. Any food which is high in fat, insoluble
fiber (which cannot be dissolved in water like fruits, vegetables, whole
grains and cereals and caffeine (in any form like carbonated beverages,
tea, coffee and even decaf) can cause this problem. Soluble fibers on the
other hand are our saviors. They can get through problems like diarrhea
and constipation. An increased fiber diet really helps you beat this
problem. But excess of anything can be trouble. Other than helping you
out from this mess it may push you further into it. There are no specific
treatments which can cure IBS problem but by using preventive measure we
can relieve the symptoms. A change in ones lifestyle can make a huge
difference to fight this condition. Some dietary changes, changes in
medicines as well as counter attacking stress-related problem make a lot
of difference.
