Whether you?re travelling abroad or spending an evening out with friends, the last thing you want to worry about is where the nearest washrooms are or doubt every dish on the menu. Poor digestion or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can be pretty inconvenient. It can also compromise your health by preventing you from absorbing all the nutrients you need.
IBS symptoms can be all over the map. Normally, muscle along intestinal walls contracts and relaxes to push food through. When you have IBS, the contractions are more intense and last longer, forcing food through quicker and giving you symptoms of gas, bloating and diarrhea. But the opposite can also be true ? weaker muscle contractions cause food to stay in the colon longer, resulting in constipation. Some people actually experience both and suffer from extreme cramping, passing only mucous.
IBS sufferers need to stay vigilant. Frequent bouts of diarrhea can cut the absorption of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates, all of which you need to stay healthy.
Pinpointing what triggers IBS can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Foods like chocolate, spices, fats, beans and even some fruits or vegetables can launch symptoms. Stress, hormonal changes in women during their menstrual cycles or intestinal bacterial overgrowth can also be culprits.
There?s no cure for IBS but there is help for reducing intestinal discomfort when it hits.
