The description of irritable bowel syndrome typically used by doctors evaluating patient symptoms is pain or discomfort in the abdomen that is relieved by a bowel movement, changes in frequency or appearance of the stool and bloating or gas. These symptoms can be associated with other digestive disorders, some which are more serious, so even if your symptoms fit the description of irritable bowel syndrome, it is important to discuss them with your doctor. The specific causes of irritable bowel syndrome are unknown, but it affects an estimated one out of every five people at some point in their lives.

The possible causes of irritable bowel syndrome differ depending on whether the pain or discomfort is accompanied by diarrhea or constipation. Treatment plans vary as well. Too much fiber in the diet may lead to diarrhea and some people may be overly sensitive to certain types of fiber. Too little fiber in the diet may lead to constipation. Everyone experiences diarrhea or loose stools and constipation at times, but people who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome experience frequent or chronic abdominal pain that is associated with changes in the frequency of bowel movements.

The description of irritable bowel syndrome used by physicians will include either constipation or diarrhea, in other words, the diagnosis will read IBS with constipation or IBS with diarrhea. In some cases, people experience both at different times, that is to say sometimes they have pain that is followed by diarrhea and sometimes they have pain that is accompanied by constipation.

The number of times that a person needs to move their bowels varies. Some may have a movement two or three times per day and others only two or three times per week. As previously mentioned, it is a change in frequency of movements that fits the description of irritable bowel syndrome. Women suffer from IBS more frequently than men and, because of this; it is believed that monthly hormonal changes may be possible causes of irritable bowel syndrome in women.

Other possible causes of irritable bowel syndrome include food allergies or sensitivities, enzyme deficiencies, imbalance of bacteria in the intestinal tract and stress. Some say that stress is definitely not one of the causes of irritable bowel syndrome, but many people who suffer from IBS suffer from anxiety, stress or other emotional issues, as well. In addition, studies have shown that stress management, behavioral and hypnotic therapies can all relieve some or all of the symptoms included in the description of irritable bowel syndrome. These therapies have been effective in both IBS with diarrhea and IBS with constipation.

Ever had an enema? Do you suffer from constipation? If you suffer from abdominal cramps, bloating and some diarrhea then you might be a sufferer of irritable bowel syndrome. If you are looking for relief, good news�

The subtle symptoms creep into our life one at a time until we find a barrage of complications we never had before. Constipation is the most obvious difference, then pain, abdominal cramps and bloating followed with occasional diarrhea, all add up to irritable bowel syndrome.

Our lifestyles have shaped our habits to fit an unnatural pattern of elimination. We eat and rush to work or school, suppressing the natural elimination that should occur within 20 minutes after eating.

Some individuals may wait as long as a week between bowel movements. This only complicates the impaction, toxic build up in the bowel, which comes back into the blood stream as toxic waste, and creates a need for laxatives or enemas.

Enema can be a natural remedy for irritable bowel syndrome and constipation. The early 1900�s medical practice was that when a patient was admitted to the hospital for any ailment, the patient first received an enema. A bit messy and inconvenient, enema is usually a last resort. Diet and intestinal cleanse using all natural herbs has become more popular and healthy.

Colon cleanse has become a buzzword as it has been determined that the origin of most disease starts in the colon. The impaction of fecal matter that lines the walls of the colon without being eliminated can easily be 15 pounds. Decay and putrefaction in the bowl throws the immune system in extreme overload, ridding the body of toxins and trying to fight off disease. If the immune system fails, disease grows in the body.

Irritable bowel syndrome can be controlled before permanent damage is done to the colon. Herbal colon cleanse is the most effective on a long-term use. Herbal colon detoxification is also called colon cleanse. High fiber foods in the diet are natural scrubbing agents for the colon to cleanse the cilia that absorb nutrients.

Constipation is not all corrected with a laxative. Drink 5 glasses of water a day. Avoid excess bread and pastry. Augment your diet with foods high in fiber. Choose an intestinal formula supplement that will stimulate the peristaltic action in your bowel and strengthens the colon muscles.

Avoid harsh laxatives that are not all natural. Dependence on over the counter laxatives can lead to weakened elimination muscles and loss of natural body function.

It is claimed that all habits can be learned in 21 days. In the next three weeks try an intestinal herbal formula and make time to eliminate within 30 minutes of eating. Your body is designed to heal itself if you do not override the master plan.

You can design your own special diet for irritable bowel syndrome control by keeping a food and symptoms diary. There are some common diets for irritable bowel syndrome control that include recommendations about what foods may or may not cause problems. But, these can only go so far. Some people are sensitive to wheat products while others are sensitive to dairy. And still others are sensitive to fructose and sugar substitutes. In order to keep restrictions to a minimum and still control symptoms, it typically works best to design a unique diet for irritable bowel syndrome, based on individual preferences and sensitivities.

The common diets for irritable bowel syndrome typically recommended by doctors are healthy and well-balanced. A diet for irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea will differ from a diet for irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. In cases where both constipation and diarrhea are experienced at different times, a food and symptoms diary is particularly helpful. In the diary, you would note what symptoms you are experiencing and what foods you ate recently. Balance is the key to a diet for irritable bowel syndrome control when both constipation and diarrhea are experienced.

Fiber is an important part of any diet for irritable bowel syndrome control. It is recommended that healthy adults consume 20-35 grams of fiber per day. A food and symptoms diary will also help you determine how much fiber you are consuming and supplement when necessary. Certain types of high fiber cereals may need to be excluded from a diet for irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, but fiber should not be excluded completely. If you are designing your own diet for irritable bowel syndrome control and you commonly have diarrhea, you may want to start with twenty grams of fiber per day, the low end of the scale, rather than a larger amount.

Common diets for irritable bowel syndrome recommended by doctors to control symptoms typically exclude caffeine, alcohol and sodas. These products can increase diarrhea, but they can also slow down the digestive system causing bloating and constipation. In addition, a diet for irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea should exclude chocolate and fructose. Fructose is a simple sugar found in most fruit and fruit juices. It is an ingredient in many processed foods. If you are designing a diet for irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, you may need to check the ingredients on foods that you commonly eat. You do not want to exclude all fruit from your diet. Fruit is an important part of any well balanced diet, supplying many essential vitamins and nutrients, as well as dietary fiber found in edible skins. This is why a food and symptoms diary is so important. Undoubtedly you will find that there are certain foods that cause more problems than others. Common diets for irritable bowel syndrome include recommendations for eating yogurt, which contains probiotics, a substance believed to improve the balance between good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract.

If you are designing your own diet for irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, you may want to avoid the fried and fatty foods, as well as products containing the ingredient olean. If constipation is your problem, you may want to avoid highly processed foods like chips, cookies and white rice. Any of these could be causing you problems; the best way to learn what foods to avoid is by using a food and symptoms diary. This cannot be overemphasized, in this writer�s opinion. And don�t forget to drink plenty of water. Water is an important part of common diets for irritable bowel syndrome control; both when constipation is present, to soften the stool and when diarrhea is present, to prevent dehydration from fluid loss. Most experts recommend eight 8 ounce glasses of water per day or 64 ounces total.

There are two basic types of irritable bowel syndrome. Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea include abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating and frequent, loose or watery stools. To define frequent, you must look at what is normal for the individual. The number of bowel movements that a person has varies greatly. Some people have three movements per day, while others may have only three per week. A change in the frequency of bowel movements that is accompanied by abdominal pain often leads physicians to diagnose irritable bowel syndrome.

Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation also include abdominal pain, discomfort and/or bloating, but the stools are hard or difficult to pass and movements are less frequent than what is normal for the individual. In a few cases, people with irritable bowel syndrome symptoms experience constipation at times and diarrhea at other times. Abdominal pain can be a symptom of a number of other medical conditions and should be evaluated by a physician. If a bowel movement relieves the pain, then the physician may determine that the abdominal pain is associated with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

The exact causes of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms are unknown, but patients can often determine what triggers the symptoms by keeping a foods and symptoms journal; noting what foods or beverages were consumed before the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome began. Products containing caffeine, alcohol and carbonated beverages may trigger symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, though these products do not cause the condition. Food sensitivities often trigger symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Some people are sensitive to wheat products; others are sensitive to milk products. And still others find that fructose, a simple sugar found in fruit and fruit juices triggers symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. This is why a food and symptoms diary is helpful. By avoiding certain foods, some people are able to keep the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome under control.

Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are more likely to show up in people between the ages of 13 and 40, than in those over 50. Women are more likely to have symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome than are men. This may indicate that irritable bowel syndrome symptoms are related to monthly changes in hormonal levels, but this is not certain. It seems that many people who suffer from symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome also are suffering from stress or other emotional difficulties and because of this stress management or behavior therapies are sometimes recommended. In addition, a recent study showed that hypnotic therapy was effective in controlling irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.

The causes and triggers of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms vary greatly among individuals. Treatment plans vary as well. Some prescription medications and herbal remedies may be helpful over the short term, but dietary and lifestyle changes are typically necessary to keep the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome under control for extended periods of time.
