Irritable bowel: symptoms, treatment and recommendations

Do you have what is known as irritable bowel syndrome? Discover its symptoms, main medical treatments and healthy recommendations to take into account for people with this disorder.

Irritable bowel is considered one of the most common disorders that affect many people each year. Not surprisingly, it is one of the most common medical disorders, along with gastritis and gastritis nervosa.

In fact, although very few people know it, the medical reality is that a patient is diagnosed with irritable bowel when the medical specialist cannot identify any other cause.

For this reason, it is quite common that causes such as following an unbalanced diet, and common emotional disorders such as stress or anxiety are considered as its consequences.

But in order to diagnose IBS as such, its symptoms need to be felt for 12 weeks out of a year.

Irritable bowel symptoms

  • Abdominal swelling.
  • Gas and flatulence.
  • Continuous constipation that alternates with periods of diarrhea.
  • Cramps (which usually go away when you go to the bathroom).
  • Sensation of not having finished the evacuation completely.
  • Need to go to the bathroom after eating or getting up.
  • abdominal cramps

Irritable bowel treatment

It is true that there is no medical treatment for irritable bowel that helps to solve its root causes, since the main treatment that could be provided has to do with changing nutritional habits and following a calm and emotionally stable life.

It is essential, for example, that the person suffering from this disorder change their diet, and opt for the consumption of more foods rich in fiber and take probiotics, which nourish and care for the intestinal flora.

It is also advisable to stay away from stress and anxiety, especially from those situations that cause their appearance. Natural techniques such as meditation or relaxation can be of great help.

Recommendations for people with irritable bowel

Although it is true that there is no specific medical treatment, it would be advisable to follow the following basic recommendations:

  • Eat easy-to-digest foods.
  • Try to increase your consumption of foods rich in soluble fiber.
  • The consumption of probiotics will help you nourish and care for your intestinal flora. In addition, it will facilitate your digestion.
  • Always eat fruit without seeds.
  • Avoid coffee, alcohol and tobacco. They excite the intestine.
  • Eat low-fat animal foods.
  • Eat slowly and slowly enjoy each bite.
  • Live a more relaxed life.
  • Avoid stress and anxiety.
