Hello -

Researchers have identified a link between the digestive system and the brain, so cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) may be a helpful option for treating the symptoms of IBS.

Irritable bowel syndrome refers to a group of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms that regularly appear together. It's classified as a functional GI disorder, which means the underlying cause has to do with how your brain and gut communicate with one another.

IBS symptoms typically include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, and bowel changes. While IBS does notTrusted Source permanently damage your GI system, it can flare up and cause intense discomfort during daily life.

Because IBS is a functional GI disorder, there's a definite link between your emotional state and your IBS symptoms - and that's where CBT may have a place in treatment.
