What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Women are at higher risk to suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • Being a woman age 35 years old and below is a typical profile of a person who has IBS.
  • The condition occurs in about 1 out 5 adult Americans - 20% of the adult population.
  • 75% of the people who have IBS are women.

Some Key Points About IBS

  • IBS is the 7th most common diagnosis in primary care!
  • IBS effects 35 million people.
  • IBS is a chronic condition.
  • It takes an average of 4 years to get a diagnosis, often longer.
  • Many people feel "not normal" or "frustrated" or "not like themselves"
  • While bloating tends to be the most common symptom in SIBO, but the pain and constipation/diarrhea are the most common symptoms of IBS

What Causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

IBS is believed to be caused by and extremely sensitive large intestine. This sensitivity can be the results of stress, imbalance of bacteria in the intestines and abnormal levels of serotonin. Typically muscles in the gastrointestinal tract move in a coordinated manner as food passes from the stomach to the rectum. In the case of IBS, muscle movements are either much stronger or much slower causing either diarrhea or constipation.

  • IBS may affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, creating more issues for the person.
  • Up to 60 percent of IBS patients also experience anxiety and depression.
  • Levels of the brain chemical serotonin usually are low among patients with IBS.
  • People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) also may be sensitive to certain foods:
    • alcohol
    • artificial sweeteners
    • chemical additives
    • chocolate
    • dairy products
    • gluten
    • red meat
    • sodas

How Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome Diagnosed? 

IBS symptoms typically come and go, making a clear diagnosis difficult. Besides a person’s medical history and a  physical exam, the following tests may also be performed to help determine whether or not a person has IBS.

  • CT Scan
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Lactose intolerance test

Constipation alternates with diarrhea that can be profuse, watery and explosive. The person may regurgitate small amounts of food. One study indicated those patients who took Asafoetida for IBS experienced more improvement than those taking a placebo. Constipation brings on griping pains. Diarrhea can be explosive.

Soreness in the muscles of the abdominal wall, as well as painful gas and cramps are common. Firm pressure on the abdomen brings some relief. When constipated, the person has an urge to move the bowels, but only small amounts come out. The person may experience a constant feeling of uneasiness in the rectum. After diarrhea has passed, the pain may be eased for a little while. A person who needs this remedy often craves strong spicy foods, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and other stimulants—and usually feels worse from having them.
