IBS Diet - Eating for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Diet
IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is a disorder defined and diagnosed by IBS symptoms
which are both chronic and intermittent.
IBS symptoms can be successfully managed by the Eating for IBS diet
, which pioneered comprehensive IBS dietary guidelines based on the physical effects certain categories of foods have on the GI tract.
The IBS diet emphasizes foods that help gently stabilize bowel motility, which is by definition dysfunctional if you have IBS. At the same time, the IBS diet eliminates or minimizes foods that disrupt normal bowel motility and trigger IBS symptoms.
Interestingly, the same foods affect both Irritable Bowel Syndrome diarrhea AND constipation
, as well as bloating, gas, nausea, and painful abdominal cramps. Following the IBS diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome means learning how these foods can prevent or trigger IBS symptoms.
Once you have a firm IBS diagnosis, take heart. While there is no cure yet, the IBS diet is a safe, simple, and delicious way to successfully manage - and prevent - all IBS symptoms. You can control your IBS, not vice versa.
