Natural Remedies for Ibs (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a gastrointestinal disorder caused by irritable and irregular movement of the small and large intestines. It can also be called spastic colon and mucous colitis.
Some signs of IBS are stomach cramping or pain, constipation, bloating, gas, mucous in the stool, nausea, headaches, depression, and fatigue.
The reasons for irritable bowel syndrome are not known, but nervousness, frustration, or anger can add to it. Drinking too much coffee and eating raw fruits, cruciferous vegetables, or dairy products may make the problem worse.
Here are some easy and natural cures for those suffering from IBS.

Yogurt
Yogurt that has ‘live cultures’ can help cure diarrhea that comes from IBS. This is because live cultures are good bacteria that add a layer of protection in the intestines, and help make lactic acid to clean the body from germs.
Yogurt could be eaten plain, or made into a smoothie. Eat it a few times a day until you feel better.

Flaxseed
Because flaxseeds have dietary fibers, they help the body send out waste quickly and smoothly. Flaxseeds also have a lot of omega- 3 essential fatty acids that help the immune system and the digestive system stay strong. For these reasons flaxseeds are great for treating constipation and diarrhea.
Take one tablespoon of freshly ground flaxseed with water once a day.

Peppermint
Peppermint can help with cramping, bloating, and diarrhea that come from IBS. A study written in the British Medical Journal found that fiber, antispasmodics, and peppermint oil all help treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Peppermint oil has menthol oil, which eases cramps or spasms in the smooth muscles of the digestive tract. This stops bloating, gas, pain, and intestinal cramps. Peppermint can also help food pass

Fennel Seeds
Fennel seeds can stop the intestinal spasms, or tightening, and bloating that come with IBS. It can also help send fats out of the digestive system, and therefore stop the body from making too much mucous, which can cause IBS.

Ginger
Because ginger can lessen gas and bloating, it is used as a cure for IBS. Also, ginger can lower the swelling in the intestines, and loosen up the intestinal muscles.

Cabbage Juice
Cabbage juice is a great way to treat constipation that comes from IBS. This is because raw cabbage juice has sulfur and chlorine. These help clean the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestinal tract. Because cabbage juice works as a laxative, it makes bowel movements softer an easier to pass, and keeps the body hydrated.

To stop you from getting irritable bowel syndrome, you need to always have a good diet and a healthy lifestyle. Anything that can stop you from getting stressed, like exercising or meditating, is a good way to help with bowel discomfort, because it will keep your intestines running in a regular way.

  1. What I have is just growling and grumbling in my lower intestines that come with a good amount of gas, loose stools, and bloating ALL the time. Started happening last year really randomly and now when I sit in class my intestines just have really bad gas even if I did break wind. Gah I drank lemon tea with ginger and a dash of cinnamon. Let's see if it made any difference tomorrow because I have a 2 hour long test. Wish me luck!

  2. I think before you try to speak on something make sure its real and not just a garbage can diagnoses. If your ever told you have IBS ask the doctor to see the test that shows you have IBS. THEY CANT

  3. Greetings all.
    Every body and everybody is different and I am sure that the advice included in this video will greatly assist a significant amount of IBS sufferers.
    I have tried all of them and, while they sort of work for me, the results have, thus far, been rather arbitrary.
    Two off-beat things which I have discovered purely by coincidence after 3 years of suffering are a TENS unit and anti-histamines.
    I purchased a TENS unit to combat back and muscle pain and through a spontaneous google search learned that it could also work for IBS and, indeed, much to my pleasant surprise, it has worked so far for me. Seriously! Give it a try. A TENS unit is not expensive and there are numerous TENS training videos in utube. (But none mention IBS!!) You can simply place the TENS tabs on and around your stomach/intestine area and switch on the device for 20-30 minutes at a pulse which is comfortable.
    Due to a skin irritation a dermatologist recommended an anti-histamine (generic: loratadin). While taking it I noticed that my IBS symptoms had subsided. Hmm. A google search revealed immediately that ofttimes IBS sufferers have a large amount of histamines in their digestive tract and that anti-histamines sometimes work.
    Both of the above have, at least for me, at least for now, have worked and I have had no side effects. Both proposals are inexpensive and available without prescription and any doctor-visit hassle.
    Hope somebody will find this helpful.
