How to take control of your IBS by managing your stress levels and changing your diet. Great combination… most effective treatment found!
It’s IBS Awareness Month throughout April which highlights this common condition that affects so many people of different ages including children.
No one knows the exact cause of IBS but it is linked to the digestion system and the gut experiencing sensitivity which can cause food to move too fast through the body causing diarrhoea or too slowly causing constipation. Serotonin levels can increase after eating certain foods and if affected by stress, it can stop the gut from functioning normally. This is very interesting as Serotonin is a chemical produced in the body which makes the nervous system cells and the brain cells communicate with each other, and too little Serotonin can cause depression. This moves us on to certain triggers that can cause IBS to appear and cause an attack and make the symptoms worse. Triggers include the following:
There is also strong evidence that psychological factors affect IBS and a traumatic event sometimes in childhood or a limiting belief or negative emotion that you never knew you had could be behind this disorder. By tapping into your unconscious mind and removing these negative beliefs and installing new positive beliefs can start you becoming and feeling the best you have felt in ages.
Keeping a food diary can help identify food triggers that may be causing an attack.
