Irritable Bowel Syndrome

This is a common diagnosis offered to thousands of individuals suffering from all sorts of indigestion symptoms associated with their bowels. The problem of diagnosis with this “Syndrome”, is the lack of understanding of what the causes could be, and how to prevent it in the future for the patient.

When I was a young teen, I was also diagnosed with IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome). This provided no relief, however did provide a long list of tests, including a barium enema, which were extremely uncomfortable. When I was finished with these tests, the doctors didn’t provide me with a list of foods to watch for, or an increased awareness for any other possible helpful solutions….. instead I was on my own. Unfortunately that was not any further ahead then before all the testing. Although I do give credit for the great advances in modern medicine, we do have to understand its limitations, and furthermore take responsibility for our own health.

Diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Here are a few dietary suggestions when suffering the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome:

  1. Increasing intake of probiotic foods/supplements – Buy adding these friendly bacteria to your diet it can help to rebalance the gut flora
