This modern way of living that we are experiencing for the past few years—and probably will become more sophisticated in the next few decades, may provide us a lot of convenience and comfort in terms of work, travel, school and the like. However, we cannot deny the fact that this way of living can give rise to many health concerns.

Pressure from work and school, stress, anxiety and all other things that blow our lives out of proportion; plus the fast paced living which makes us resort to eating in fast foods, processed goods, and the like; make us very much prone to developing GI related conditions. And undoubtedly, on the upper part of the list is Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

What Should I Do If I Have IBS?

This certain condition results from emotional and food intake related factors. It may lead to signs and symptoms like constipation, diarrhea, alternating episodes of the former and the latter, abdominal cramping and bloating, and many other GI related signs and symptoms. As such, seeking medical attention immediately is a must for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. This certain condition can lead to long term effects like dehydration, easy fatigability, weight loss and the like.

There are various ways by which one can undergo treatment for irritable bowel disease. To learn more about the popular treatment for irritable bowel, read on…

Treatment for Irritable Bowel: Pain Relievers

Pain relievers should be kept inside the pocket—that is most important to people who experience muscle cramping a lot, like people with IBS. Pain relievers can also come in the form of injectables, however, these are meant for those suffering from severe IBS that may have already resulted in hospitalization. Potent narcotic analgesics may also be given in rare occasions. In simple and day to day cases, a tablet of muscle relaxant will usually suffice for an IBS attack.

Treatment for Irritable Bowel: Diarrhea and Constipation Medications

Diarrhea medications come in the form of anti-motility drugs like Loperamide. These drugs prevent the intestine from being to hypermotile, leading to relief from diarrhea. On the other hand, constipation may also be treated with laxatives since this drug tends to soften stool. Put in mind, however, that both these drugs must be taken with the doctor’s prescription, most especially laxatives since rebound effect is common.

Treatment for Irritable Bowel: Food Watch

Nothing beats preventing attacks of IBS. Watching your intake and making sure you are knowledgeable about what causes IBS and what foods do not cause it is very significant. Many cases of IBS are triggered by dairy products like milk, yogurt, etc. Some also experience IBS upon intake of oily and fatty foods. Striking them off of your diet list is important. But since they, too have beneficial effects to our body, you can try to find alternatives in getting nutrients that we acquire from such foods.

Piously complying with these treatments for IBS can improve your condition effectively, most especially the last one. After all, IBS is just a matter of avoiding what triggers you frequently… so without taking in these triggers inside your mouth and body, there is no need for further IBS remedies.




  1. I am every time suffering from constipation as well as diarrhea. Due to these problems I am loosing weight continuously. I want to know whether I am an IBS patient. Are there any other symptoms besides that helps in diagnosing IBS?

  2. I have IBS, and at first I also lost weight. The pain causes us not to want to eat. I also have fatigue, cramping, and severe pain.
    You really should see a gastroenterologist. They can help you with this. You may have to have a colonoscopy, to rule out more serious diseases. It is best to be safe.
    Good luck!!!

  3. first i had piles,that is over but now i have upset stomach along with cramps,pain and motions.what should i do?

  4. Is lactolose a good remedy for constipation and wind?

  5. i have IBS, all i can say is you have to stop drinking alcohol, stop smoking cigarettes, and in my unfortunate case… marijuana. Greasy food will hurt you, junk food will hurt you, soda will hurt you, being lazy will hurt you, sitting down too long will hurt you, being angry will hurt you, being stressed will hurt you…. eliminate all this crap from your daily life! i start my morning everyday by taking a hot shower, drinking hot water with lemon juice or herbal non-caffeine tea or just hot water. Then i put a variety of vegetables in a blender with a little bit of fruit to sweeten it up. after that i have to jog or ride my bike every morning fallowed by several other training. I dont chance eating heavy however i do eat small meals throughout the day. this is the only thing that combats against IBS. i would not trust medications or painkillers. its been months of agonizing torture trying to finger out what works. another tip would be to walk immediately after eating… if your sitting down you had better have proper posture also, because if you are slouched that food isn’t going to go through your stomach very well at all. And my finally suggestion drink water with every meal, stay hydrated all day… and keep eating raw foods. thanx for reading! i hope this helps you!!!
