Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome is an intestinal disorder that causes episodes of abdominal pain, cramps or bloating, and diarrhea or constipation. Other symptoms are mucus in stool or feeling that bowl has not emptied after a bowel movement. People with IBS may feel full more quickly than normal during meals. Some peoples have nausea, back pain, frequent urination, and headaches. Although symptoms are intermittent, IBS can persist for many years. The cause is unknown, but sensitivity to certain foods, bowel infection, and stress can trigger attacks.

Home Remedies
  • Psyllium husks: Take 1 teaspoon of psyllium husks (sat isabgol) with 1/2 cup of fresh yogurt 1 hour after dinner.
  • Flaxseed: Boil 1 teaspoon of flaxseed (linseed) in a cupful of water to make a tea, and drink it at bedtime.
  • Peppermint: If troubled by abdominal pain or bloating, take a enteric-coated capsule of peppermint oil, half an hour before a meal, three times a day. (Note: Peppermint oil may cause heartburn).
Do's
  • Keep a note for few weeks during an episode of IBS to find out any possible contributory factors. Common triggers for IBS include dairy products, wheat, citrus fruits, alcohol, and coffee.
  • Eat and drink slowly, and chew food thoroughly. Eat several small meals a day.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • If having constipation, add more fiber to your diet, such as cereals, brown rice, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Exercise regularly for 20-30 minutes a day (such as walking, cycling, or swimming) to help reduce stress and regulate the bowels.
  • If stress triggers IBS, manage stress by practicing breathing exercise or meditation.
Don’ts
  • Avoid tea, coffee, carbonated drinks, and alcohol.
  • Do not smoke.
  • Avoid spicy and oily foods.
  • Avoid gas-producing foods, such as beans, broccoli, and cabbage.
  • Avoid foods high in acid, such as citrus fruit.
See Doctor
  • If you suspect you have IBS, see your doctor. IBS isn't something to self- diagnose.
  • Symptoms do not subside or worsen after 2 weeks of above treatment.
  • Develop new symptoms.
