HEALTHY IS A GUT FEELING
Irritable bowel syndrome presents as a variety of symptoms like:
- Stomach cramps
- Diarrhoea and/or Constipation
- Bloating and gas
There is often a strong link to stress and anxiety, but hormonal cycles, bacterial infections and antibiotic use can be equally responsible for either worsening or causing the onset of IBS.
Depending on the symptoms you present with, dietary treatment can vary from just modifying the type of fiber in your diet to an exclusion diet.
There are 5 types of IBS and 2-3 stages in treating each of these. The gut is the inner tube of life, the site of numerous metabolic processes, without gut health there simply is no health. IBS can have a profound impact on your general health, energy, mood and immunity if not treated correctly.
