Self Help for IBS


Due the nature of the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome, some people feel reluctant to visit their doctor for help.

Many sufferers find that the treatments they have been using fail to work effectively. If you are in a position that requires you to seek help for IBS and you feel that you are unable to seek a health professional, there may be alternative remedies that you can try yourself to solve the symptoms.

This will allow for you to move away from the uncomfortable, painful symptoms associated with IBS towards a more comfortable life. Although the following advice is intended to help those who believe they have IBS, it is always recommended that you seek professional help.

One major change that can be made to remedy IBS involves your diet.

Diet is one of many factors that can lead to IBS. Not enough fiber in your diet can be a contributing factor to IBS. The first thing to do if you suspect that this may be causing a problem is to monitor your diet. From here, you can determine how much fiber your body requires to balance the rest of your food groups. Following this, you can either add more fiber into your diet or take other foods away, depending on what your body needs.

Other foods that often relate to IBS include dark or red meat, dairy products and fried foods. Heavy foods with high amounts of fat can also cause problems. There are several lists that are available that state different foods and the problems that they may cause. Experimenting with what you are eating or what you are not eating may help to eliminate IBS.

Another option to look at is the vitamins and supplements that you are taking with IBS. There are several that need extra nutrients of certain types to help with this problem. For example, having extra digestive enzymes in the form of supplements can help to eliminate the problem. Flaxseed is another option that can remedy symptoms.

Dehydration is another related symptom of IBS if it is not taken care of immediately. If you are finding that you are not able to eliminate IBS any other way, you can also try drinking more water. Our bodies need to have a specific amount everyday for healthy functioning. If you are unsure if you are drinking enough water, you can monitor how much you drink every day and compare it to what is needed.

If you are still having problems with eliminating IBS from your life, then another option would be to find what other people's opinions are regarding IBS. There are self-help books as well as resources that you can look into. By examining these different places and seeing what to focus on to remedy this problem, it will help you to find exactly what you need for your self-help medication.

Having IBS can often get in the way of your every day life. If you have IBS related problems or symptoms, then you may be able to help yourself move away from the symptoms. Monitoring and examining different options for IBS is the first step to allow your digestive tract to function properly. Self-help is often a useful way to remedy IBS although it is recommended that you seek professional help in the first instance.
