Tips to Help You Manage Symptoms of IBS

Article by Jaime Mishkin

Anyone with IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, knows how hard it is to handle symptoms and to find medications that are highly successful in helping with this condition. Over the years I have undertaken many things and these are the three most essential and straightforward things I have discovered to enhance my quality of life with IBS.

1. Stress Reducing Techniques – Stress is one of the leading factors that contributes to and aggravates Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Thus reducing stress is very important for a person with IBS in controlling this problem. In this regard here are some techniques I have found to be very useful in helping to lessen stress. First learn some simple breathing techniques designed to help calm you and your digestive system. Second learn what conditions or circumstances increase your stress levels and aggravate you and then learn to avoid these situations.Third do something for yourself each day that relaxes you. This could be anything from reading, or mediating or even relaxing in a hot tub. The point is to engage in some personal activity you find relaxing.Lastly besides reducing stress of course you’ll want to engage in some exercise, improve your diet and make sure you get enough sleep. These are all important when dealing with IBS.

2. Adding a nutritious diet to your everyday life is so necessary for people with IBS. Figuring out which foods and spices can bring on the symptoms of this disorder is not a simple thing, but avoiding such foods once you know what they are will help you reduce the amount of time spent with such side effects as diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating and so on. Professional help may be needed or supplements in order to make sure you are receiving all the vitamins and minerals your body desires to help heal itself. Drinking plenty of water is also important to help keep your digestive tract working more effectively.

3. Exercise at least several days a week. I passionately advise some form of daily working out if possible, but even several days a week can greatly ease symptoms in my encounters. It not only helps relieve stress but also helps with your digestive system by keeping things moving.

These three suggestions would benefit anyone, but for those with IBS, these can be the difference between putting up with the nasty symptoms that come along with this problem and trying to cope with them.
