Are you plagued with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)? Irritable Bowel symptoms can include abdominal bloating and soreness, wind, stomach cramps, alternating diarrhoea and constipation, backache, and fatigue.
Self-care for Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be approached in a number of ways—but it can be hard to know just where to start. To make it easier try these simple steps first:
Explore food sensitivities, and avoid problem foods: typically milk, cheese, caffeine-containing drinks, sugar, and alcohol can cause Irritable Bowel symptoms. Change your diet where possible to exclude these problem foods and drinks. You may need to work with a qualified health professional to identify other foods that could be aggravating your condition.
