IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
IBS is a health problem that many people have, but few talk about. Why? It's embarrassing! IBS is a digestive disorder in which people experience recurrent bouts of abdominal pain, alongside significant changes to their experience of bowel movements. People who have IBS may experience chronic constipation, episodes of urgent diarrhea, or flip-flop back and forth between the two extremes.
The exact cause or causes of IBS isn't known, but the following are suspect.
- Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
- Disrupted gut microbiota (aka “dysbiosis”)
- Increased intestinal barrier permeability (aka “leaky gut”)
- Gut infections
- Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and other food intolerances
This along with high stress, unhealthy diet, lack of enzymes and probiotics add up to a highly unhealthy and disturbed digestive tract.
Symptoms can include:
- Alternating constipation and diarrhea
- Abdominal pain
